UK MUSIC: CLEOPATRA – GET IN FIT IN

90s singing group/siblings Cleopatra have returned to the music scene and in February performed their new single ‘Get In Fit In’ live on stage, in what looks like an nightclub (probably based way out in Essex). The group appeared on UK Living’s ‘Pop Goes The Band’ and each recieved a make over/plastic surgery. So can somebody please tell me why they look like this? Who is their stylist??????? The hair, the outfits…. I mean WTF???? HUGE SIGH* [Thank Nessa] Your thoughts please…..

CIARA FT JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE – ‘LOVE SEX MAGIC’

What is there to say about Ciara’s latest effort Love Sex Magic ft Justin Timberlake? Well it’s sounds ok, nothing to write home about. As for the video.. well Ciara just looks as if she’s trying to hard. I smell a faint whiff of desperation here. Watch and you will see what I mean.  Your thoughts please….

UK MUSIC: CRAZY COUNSINZ FT CALISTA – ‘BONGO JAM’

[Thanks T] First off – What the HELL???? LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And surprise surprise not one black model in sight. Oh dear… excluded once again! When will the UK’s black music “industry” (and I use that term loosely) give the black woman a break???

VIDEO: YUNG BERG – ‘OUTERSPACE’

Rapper Yung Berg more or less deaded his own career earlier this year after these offensive remarks…. I’m kinda racist … I don’t like dark butts ….

If you can jump in the pool exactly like you are and you don’t come out []

UK MUSIC: ALESHA DIXON – ‘BREATHE SLOW’

Former Mis-Teeq group member/’Strictly Come Dancing’ winner 2007 Alesha Dixon,  has released her second single from the album ‘The Alesha Show’, and I will say that this track is a major improvemnet from the last single ‘The Boy Does Nothing’. The beat sounds familiar (I cannot place where I’ve heard it before), but ‘Breathe Slow’ is catchy and most importantly ‘radio friendly’. Alesha still doesn’t rate very highly in my books as a solo performer, and I still believe that former Mis-Teeq front woman Sabrina Washington should be the one with the []

FEMALE RAP STAR IN THE MAKING: ANGEL LOLA LUV – ‘BOSS BITCH’

Popular video model/glamour Angel Lola Luv has got it in to her pretty little head, that she has what it takes to become a female rap superstar. Check out the “masterpiece” that is ‘Boss Bitch’. 50 Cent has co-signed Angel’s musical aspirations and can be heard mentoring the model late in to the night….  Your thoughts please….
