NEW MUSIC: RIHANNA - 'GOODBYE'

2/28/2010 1
"Goodbye", is a new song from Rihanna that was recorded during the one of the sessions for her first two albums 'Music of the Sun' and 'A Girl Like Me'.




Laced with a piano, the building track is a winner for Ms. Fenty, who puts her then overly premature vocals to nice use. To be honest, this overlaps a bulk of the material that actually found placement on those two albums, and could easily work for the "Umbrella" singer now, if she chose to run with it.

2/28/2010 1
Here's a newly released demo of Jesse McCartney singing "Bleeding Love", which went on to introduce Leona Lewis and reach No.1.




Given the track is clearly more suited for a woman, which is why Jesse vetoed the idea of including it on his album, it has to be noted that McCartney actually manages to pull off the track by switching up the beat and delivering on vocals.

2/28/2010 1
R&BB veteran Toni Braxton walks a thin line between country and soul on "If I Had to Wait", a new track from her forthcoming album, Pulse.




As perfect match for husky vocals, Braxton delivers what is possible her most spot on ballad since "Unbreak My Heart" in 1996. This is the type of music that the songstress excels at and it proves that despite some doubt, she still has it.

Singer/reality star Monica has premiered her official video for "Everything To Me", the lead single from her forthcoming album, Still Standing.



Directed by Benny Boom, the clip nearly mirrors the 2009 film 'Obsessed' and features Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco as her leading man. Aside from that comparison, the singer looks stunning and it effectively matches the soulful cut (and stands as one of her best in recent years).

KANYE WEST - 'COLDEST WINTER' [VIDEO]

2/24/2010 0
Controversial rapper Kanye West has released the video for "Coldest Winter", from his certified platinum album, 808s and Heartbreak.



The dark clip, which does not feature Mr. West, shows you just why he has become one of music's leading acts as it justifies the cut, while also standing as an abstract/stimulating piece of art.

No other hip-hop artists, have taken as many risks or put as much depth into their music visuals as West has, which only further validates the first claim.

Singer/actress Jessica Simpson graces the cover of the March 2010 issue of Allure, which hits newsstands on Tuesday (February 23rd).


On John Mayer's Influence:
"He didn't make me go brunette. John doesn't get credit for making me brunette. He'd like to think so, but he doesn't deserve the credit."

On Being Single:
"I'm on my own, and it's nice."

On Her Relationship with Tony Romo:
"I talked to Tony today. I'm still a fan [of the Dallas Cowboys]. I'm a huge fan. I wear my gear, and I cheer Tony on."

On Her Next Husband:
He'll be "an artistic man…It will show you the colors of my character, the person that I fall in love with next. I don't even have a type! I don’t have a physical type. I have an emotional type."

On Being Ridiculed for Her Weight:
"I would not wish on my worst enemy what I went through."

On Her Acting Rules:
"I will never do nudity. I don't care how dark and intellectual the role could be, you know. I don't care if I frickin' could get an Oscar for it, I'm not going to do it. Those accolades mean nothing to me. I don't think people deserve to see what's under my clothing. That's only for my next husband."

On Turning 30:
"I never really thought, growing up, what am I gonna be like when I'm 30? I just thought I had it figured out: I'm going to be this great pop star, have my songs on the radio, be married, have babies, but things can be taken away. A song can not be played on the radio. An album can not work."

NEW MUSIC: WYNTER GORDON - 'DIRTY TALK' [LEAD SINGLE]

2/21/2010 1
Atlantic Records artist Wynter Gordon has chosen the David Guetta-produced "Dirty Talk" as the lead single from her upcoming debut.




Equipped with sexy lyrics and a rather catchy hook, the cut has the makings of a good Pop/Dance record. There's nothing breathtakingly original about the record, but it does immediately catch your ear and if promoted correct by her label, then we should finally get an album from Ms. Gordon.

SADE MARCHES TO NO.1 WITH 'SOLDIER'

2/21/2010 0

Nearly 10 years after the group's last studio effort, Sade is back with "Soldier of Love," blasting in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with 502,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"Solder of Love" gives Sade its first No. 1 debut and its best sales week since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. On top of that, it's the best sales week for an album by a group since AC/DC's "Black Ice" bulldozed into the chart at No. 1 on the chart dated Nov. 8, 2008, with 784,000.

"Soldier" is Sade's second No. 1 album. Its first, "Promise," spent two weeks at the top of the chart in 1986. The new album is also the first studio effort from the band -- led by vocalist Sade Adu -- since "Lovers Rock" was released in November of 2000. That set debuted and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with 370,000 sold in its first week. Since its release, "Lovers Rock" has sold 3.9 million in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

All told, Sade has notched eight top 10 albums in a row on the Billboard 200 -- its entire output of albums, which stretches back to its "Diamond Life" debut in 1985. That total includes its six studio sets, one greatest hits ("The Best Of") and one live recording ("Lovers Live"). With that feat of eight top 10s, Sade is the first group since Led Zeppelin to see its first eight charting albums all reach the top 10. Led Zeppelin actually did it with its first 10 albums -- from 1969 with its self-titled No. 10-peaking set, up until 1983 when "Coda" topped out at No. 6.

Last week's No. 1, Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now," slips to No. 2 in its third week on the chart, shifting 208,000 (down less than 1%). So far, the set has sold 897,000 copies. The album's miniscule third-week decline was partially owed to Valentine's Day shopping, as this chart's sales tracking week ended on Sunday, Feb. 14.

The Billboard 200's second-highest entry this week comes from Jaheim's "Another Round," which climbs in at No. 3 with 112,000. Jaheim's last studio effort, "The Makings of a Man," was released Christmas week of 2007, and bowed on the list at No. 11 with 176,000. (It's unfair to compare the debut sales weeks of the two albums, since "Makings" was released during the busiest music shopping week of the year, so naturally its sales were going to be elevated.) All told, "Another Round" is Jaheim's fourth top 10 album and second-highest charting set, following the No. 1-peaking "Ghetto Classics" in 2006.

Country singer Josh Turner has the third-best bow on the chart, as his "Haywire" album lights up at No. 5 with 85,000 copies. It's the artist's third straight top 10 album, following "Everything Is Fine," which debuted and peaked at No. 5 with 84,000 in 2007. Over on the Top Country Albums chart, Turner enters at No. 2 behind Lady A's "Need You Now."

The final top 10 start comes from tobyMac, who nets his second top 10 album in a row with "Tonight" entering at a career-high No. 6, with a personal-best sales week of 79,000. Toby McKeehan is the man behind the tobyMac name, and this is his second top 10 album on the Billboard 200 following "Portable Sounds" in 2007. That set entered and peaked at No. 10 with 51,000 in its first week. McKeehan was also a member of DC talk, which notched five hit albums on the Billboard 200, including the No. 4-peaking "Supernatural" in 1998.

As for the Billboard 200's holdovers in the top 10 this week, Lil Wayne's "Rebirth" slides down two rungs to No. 4 (89,000; down 49%); Lady Gaga's "The Fame" falls three slots to No. 7 (76,000; down 4%); and the Black Eyed Peas' "The E.N.D." moving down two positions to No. 8 (67,000; down 4%). Closing out the top 10 this week is Susan Boyle's "I Dreamed a Dream," holding steady at No. 9 (51,000; up 10%), and Taylor Swift's "Fearless," down three to No. 10 (50,000; down 6%).

Staying in his traditional lane of catchy tunes and sleek production, the cut can come across as a rather safe effort, given it doesn't help him showcase any growth as an artist. With that said, it is both a viable and fan appeasing offering that will undoubtedly deliver him success at Urban radio.

THE CW ISSUES EARLY RENEWALS

The CW has issued early series renewals to five shows -- freshman breakout hit "The Vampire Diaries," Josh Schwartz's "Gossip Girl," sophomore soap "90210," veteran drama "Supernatural" and the network's flagship reality staple "America's Next Top Model."

All will return next fall.

"Vampire Diaries" quickly became The CW's most-watched show, averaging 4.6 million viewers. On Thursdays, "Diaries" has aided "Supernatural," which has improved over last season among the network's target demo of women 18-34.

Absent from the list: "Melrose Place," which is considered unlikely to return; "Smallville," which is very likely to get a 10th season; and bubble shows "One Tree Hill" and "Life Unexpected."
