I like Alea’s voice but Sim needs to work on her delivery and flow. And both women seriously need to hire stylists. I mean come on now! That look is so cheap and dated. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
Check out up and coming group (from East London) E.L and their debut single Throw It Back. The group consists of two main rappers and a DJ. The front man of the group is known as Pteezy while the rapper known as T is the mysterious artist of the group (you will soon see why…….)

The 16-year-old, real name Daisy Coburn, claimed that the collaboration would benefit from Chipmunk’s popularity. “It’s good for the song because it’s given it an instant. People know who Chipmunk is,” she told BBC Newsbeat. “It’s [grime-pop], not my bag really. That’s not my kind of music […]

Boyband JLS have topped the UK single chart for the second time with their new single Everybody In Love. Congratulations! I am not the biggest JLS fan and I have cussed them to Kingdom Come in the past, but I am actually really happy for them now. I never thought I would live to see the day when a black British boyband would take the charts by storm and generate such mass hysteria.
