Estelle performed her new single Thank You on the Letterman Show the other night. Even though her vocals seem to have improved somewhat I still say that Estelle is no singer. She is a rapper. But it’s good to see that she is still doing well in America. The song sounds like something Mary J Blige would have sung back in the day and it sounds/looks like Estelle is attempting to channel her during this performance. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

Alexandra Burke is back with new music. The new single Elephant will be officially released on March 11. …. I weep for Alexandra and her music career in this country. I know she doesn’t want to make music like this but her label RCA (part of the Sony Music group) obviously have different ideas. *Note: RCA delayed the release of Elephant twice before giving it an official release date* Don’t be surprised when it’s announced that Alexandra is no longer signed to RCA. At this point in time the […]

Give Me All Your Luvin is Madonna’s new single featuring M.I.A and Nicki Minaj. Why Madonna felt the need to team up with the likes of M.I.A and Nicki Minaj I don’t know. Madonna is still considered relevent so she didn’t need to go down that road. Nicki and M.I.A should be banned from the recording studio, especially the over-rated M.I.A. This song sounds like something Madonna would have recorded in the 80s. I don’t like it. She is far too mature to be singing a song like […]

I have come to the conclusion that some of today’s artists really just don’t give a s**t. How can this woman jump in to the booth and record this mess and then actually believe it’s good enough to show off to the outside world? Who in her camp lied and convinced her that Stupid Hoe ‘is fire’? I swear Nicki just surrounds herself with a bunch of idiot yes men and women. Hype Williams also directed the video. Remember when he used […]

Check out the new single Girl Talk from rapper Ikes featuring Scorcher and Jermaine Riley. …. Girl Talk is your usual UK fare. A “seductive” track made for the ladies with a guy singing the hook and a touch of auto-tuning. It’s not my cup of tea at all. It just lacks something. But the 12-16 year old demographic will probably love it. The Video – A mix of different ideas and style straight from mid 90s-early noughties US rap videos. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

When I first saw the words ‘Glory – Jay-Z ft Blue Ivy’ I laughed. I thought it was a joke – a spoof! I was wrong. Jay-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy isn’t even a week old yet and he is already featuring her on his records. A close source to Mad News has just informed me that Jay aka Hov aka J-Hova aka Mr EXTRA has arranged for Blue to produce his next album and Kanye has already been summoned to show her the […]

….. I can’t quite figure out if old Skepta here expects us to take this new track seriously or if it’s supposed to be a joke. “Me and my black mates and some white niggas” and “Ah wha di bloodclart” What is going on here???? Hahahahahahahaha. Your thoughts please….
