VIDEO: DIZZEE RASCAL – ‘HOLIDAY’

Check out Dizzee Rascal’s new track ‘Holiday’. Dizzee has gone so far over to the other side (mainstream) that I fear he won’t be able to come back! BUT I actually like this track. I’ve always been a bit of a dance/rave head at heart (lol) And I see you Goldie! Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

NEW ARTIST/MUSIC: JAYBEZZ – ‘BACK IN YOUR LIFE’

Born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas (USA), openly gay R&B artist / song writer JayBezz has released the single Back In Your Life taken from his debut album Evolove, which drops on the 4th August. Click here to listen. I really like Back In Your Life. The smooth uptempo late 80s soul groove just gripped me and the track is well produced. I also think it’s the sort of track that Michael Jackson (Rest In Peace) would have sung. I can definitely hear Michael on this track. []

UK MUSIC / NEW ARTIST: MPHO – ‘BOX N LOCKS’

MPHO is a British talent like no other. A genre-defying singer, songwriter and producer, she has enormous global crossover pop potential. Already a name to drop amongst people in the know, MPHO is set to be one of the most exciting names of 2009. Her debut single on Parlophone/Wall of Sound, ‘Box N Locks’ is produced by acclaimed maestro, Switch. The track samples the legendary guitar hook from the Martha and the Muffins new wave hit, ‘Echo Beach’. MPHO was born in []

VIDEO: BEYONCE – ‘SWEET DREAMS’

Check out Beyonce’s latest single Sweet Dreams, taken from the album I am Sasha Fierce. The track has an 80s feel to it and the video’s typical Beyonce… All in all though.. it’s OK. Your thoughts please. Hit or miss?

NEW MUSIC: MARIAH CAREY – ‘OBSESSED’

Mariah Carey’s new single ‘Obsessed’ leaked today and I still demand to know what happened to the ‘Vision Of Love’ Mariah Carey? Remember her? Mariah with the power house vocals. Mariah who had the ability to shatter glass. ‘Obsessed’ (a diss track aimed at Eminem) isn’t horrible but it just sounds so childish! A nineteen year old should have been given this track to sing, not a woman who has just turned 40. And to make matters worse Mariah has jumped on []

UK MUSIC: JLS – BEAT AGAIN

Former X-Factor contestents JLS have released the video to their highly anticipated debut single Beat Again In my opinion JLS as a group have always been incredibly WEAK and Beat Again just sounds like a track that NSYNC would have recorded back in 2000.  But it will probably go down a storm with the teeny boppers…. What do you all think? Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC: MZ BRATT – ‘WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?’

This is the official video for Mz Bratt’s debut single ‘Who Do You Think You Are’. The video has a number of featured cameo’s, but as most of you already know, I don’t really pay that much attention to what goes on within the world of UK ‘urban’ entertainment, so I only recognise one or two faces… and Mz Bratt. (lol) I actually like this track. I think it’s really catchy, and something that I would play in the summer while sitting []

UK MUSIC: GIGGS FT THE STREETS – SLOW SONGS

Several days ago UK rapper/BET Best UK Hip Hop winner Giggs crossed my mind. I wondered what had happened to him because all had gone quiet on the music front, and I hadn’t received any more emails attacking me for not being one of his biggest supporters. But then the new track ‘Slow Songs’ featuring The Streets was brought to my attention [Thanks Melissa]. Mike Skinner (The Streets) also produced the track, which will officially drop later on in the year. I []
