Carrie Underwood has already took three singles from her latest album, 'Blown Away', to No.1 and now the country superstar is ready to do all over again.

"See You Again", which was written by Underwood with Hillary Lindsey and David Hodges, will serve as the official fourth single from the Grammy-winning disc and the beauty has already lined up a couple of promotional outings to help the single repeat the success of her past eighteen singles (that include an astounding seventeen No.1's).

Country superstar Keith Urban took a break from dishing out advice as a judge on 'American Idol', to perform his No.1 single, "Long Hot Summer", for the audience.

Justin Timberlake Rides '20/20' To No.1

Justin Timberlake's return to music, after a six-year hiatus, is officially a success. The "Suit & Tie" superstar sold an astounding 968,000 copies of his third solo album 'The 20/20 Experience', during its opening week resulting in a historic finish.

Not only is this the best opening frame of his solo career besting 2002′s 'Justified' (439K) and 2006′s 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' (684K), but it also ranks as the third largest opening week sales of a singer in the history of the SoundScan era, with only Usher's 'Confessions' in 2004 (1.10 million) and Garth Brooks' 'Double Live' in 1998(1.09 million) putting up stronger first-week numbers.

Mind-blowing considering the set has yet to produce an undeniable smash hit, with "Suit & Tie" peaking at No.3 on the Billboard Hot 100, but given the quality of the complete album, the feat is certainly well deserved. Watch his latest video for "Mirrors" below:

New Music: Ashanti - 'Never Should Have'

Broken hearts are often the foundation of great records and for her newest single, award-winning songstress Ashanti pours all of the emotion and feelings of a relationship that started off as fairytale, but doesn't end happily.

"How did we start off in love and end up here?", sings a hurt Ashanti on the Mansur-produced record. "You never should have loved me / You never should have touched me / You never should have told me you loved me and you would never leave me."

Listen to "Never Should Have", from her upcoming studio album 'Brave Heart', below:

With "Never Should Have", Ashanti delivers her most radio-friendly single since "Only U" and perhaps, the best vocal performance of her career.

She has always been one of R&B's top songwriters and now, she is finally finding a way to infuse the perfect amount of emotion needed to take her songs to the next level, which is much more evident here than her previous releases from the 'Brave Heart' era.

With that said, the record is not a complete slam dunk for Miss Douglas, but at this point, we think both she and her dedicated fans will simply settle for the traditional field goal.

During our brief hiatus, Beyonce returned to airwaves with "Bow Down/I Been On", a track that has been used in the promotional videos for her forthcoming 'The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour', which kicks off in Belgrade, Serbi on April 15th.

Produced by Hit-Boy ("Bow Down"), Polow Da Don, Timbaland and Planet V ("I Been On"), the track is a departure from the singer's normal routine of empowering women and caused Keyshia Cole to speak out against her hypocrisy, but the real issue is the track itself, which is complete and utter trash.

Taylor Swift Covers 'Vanity Fair' Magazine

Taylor Swift : Vanity Fair (April 2013) photo taylor-swift-vanity-fair2-celebritybug.jpg

It is no secret that Taylor Swift has had her share of break-ups and relationships that went sour, but in the April 2013 issue of Vanity Fair, the pop starlet tries to play us for a fool and insists she has only dated two guys since 2010.

"If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people,” Swift says, referencing Conor Kennedy, whom she broke things off with in October after a brief romance, and One Direction's Harry Styles, whom she split from in early January.

"The fact that there are slide shows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with, it’s just kind of ridiculous. It’s why I have to avoid the tabloid part of our culture, because they turn you into a fictional character".

"For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated - a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way - that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist," the star tells the magazine, which is currently on newsstands.
