UK MUSIC: NADINE CHARLES – YOU ARE THE ONE

You Are The One is the debut single from singer Nadine Charles, taken from the EP Introducing Miss Charles. You Are The One has got that old skool 80s Soul vibe going on. I love it! And the same goes for the video, which also features singer Kele LeRoc. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC NEWS: GRIMINAL SIGNS TO UNIVERSAL MUSIC

UK rapper Griminal announced via Twitter yesterday that he has signed to Universal Music / All Around The World. Check out the photograph he posted of himself signing on the dotted line. Why artists like to post photographs of themselves signing their lives away is beyond me. I wonder if he even bothered to read the contract first. Anyway congratulations Griminal. Now the hard work begins! Click HERE to watch the video to his new single Supa Dupa.

UK MUSIC: JMC FT SIZZLA – PLOT

Rapper JMC teams up with reggae star Sizzla on his new single Plot (scheduled digital release October 25th). I listened to Plot this morning and I really like the beat.  However I strongly object to them ruining Sizzla’s vocals with the use of auto tune.  That was so unnecessary. The video –  There is nothing particularly outstanding about this promo, but I see some of it was filmed in my parents homeland so I’ll give it the thumbs up just for that. 😀  Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC: RIAN PETERS – STEREOTYPES

Rian Peters is a singer and songwriter from South London, and this is his new single Stereotypes. I hate to say this but Jason Derulo crossed my mind while I watched this video. But the song isn’t bad. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC: N-DUBZ – BEST BEHAVIOUR

N-Dubz’s new single Best Behaviour will be released on the 17th October. Def Jam executives are probably hoping that this track will successfully break the group in to the US market. I personally don’t see that happening, but it will be a huge hit here. The video – Yeah the label spent some money. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
