VIDEO: LADY SOVEREIGN – ‘I GOT YOU DANCING’

Remember the UK’s Lady Sovereign who 2/3 years ago was being touted as the next big thing to come from this side of the pond? She signed to Universal/Def Jam and expectations were high when she dropped her debut album ‘Public Warning’. Then as predicted it all turned sour and she disappeared off the scene. But now she is back with the single ‘I Got You Dancing’, and is set to drop her sophomore album ‘Jigsaw’ soon. I can’t wait…..  Your thoughts please….. Advertisements

NEW MUSIC: BEYONCE – ‘DIVA’

I haven’t really paid much attention to Beyonce’s latest album ‘I am…. Sasha Fierce’, but I do like the tracks ‘Single Ladies’, ‘If I Were A Boy’ and now this one – ‘Diva’. I look forward to the video’s release in January 09. There have been times when I’ve begged Beyonce to get out of my face. Go away and give us time to miss you. But I do admire her work ethic and if I am honest enjoy her music. Your []

TRACK OF THE DAY: ‘JIZZ IN MY PANTS’

This is first single from The Lonely Island’s debut album “INCREDIBAD”. In stores 02/10/2009. The video features guest appearances by Jamie Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos) and Justin Timberlake. The Lonely Island is Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone (Saturday Night Live). I have a crude sense of humour so naturally I think this is hilarious. I see that they were also influenced by the British pop duo The Pet Shop Boys. They are both channelling singer Neil Tennent. They should release this as a single []

‘NOTORIOUS’ MOVIE TRAILER (IN FULL)

Check out the full movie trailer for the Notorious BIG biopic, which will be released early next year. I have to admit….this now looks as if it could actually be a pretty good movie…… Angela Bassett plays Biggie’s mother Violetta Wallace. Now I respect Angela but did she/the creators deliberately forget that Violetta has a Jamaican accent?
