It going to take more than a missed opportunity from a major record label (due to the discouragement of a mentor) to deter BECCA B from the music business. Instead the R&B/urban pop princess dust herself off and kick-start a promising career with her smooth forthcoming release, Ready and Waiting featuring rapper MceBisi.
The sophisticated R&B number, underpinned by a flawless production and additional rap interlude, is tipped to be her biggest hit to date. She says: “This song is also about new steps. It is about the flirtatious engagements between two new people wanting something more f...Read More

His work ethic doesn't seem to be stopping at all, because he just announced to fans that he is done recording his third full length album, which is yet to be titled.
Adam took to his blog to let fans know that he's spent the last four months in Los Angeles, New York, and Minnesota writing, producing, recording, engineering, mixing & mastering songs for the untitled release.

Adele has had a lot of accomplishments in her short career. From six grammy noms [and wins] to constantly having both her albums in the top spot, week after week.
This, however is an accolade that stands out. For years, the same acts have ruled the music charts in the UK. Acts like The Beatles, and Pink Floyd have dominated the spots for nearly half a decade. Today, however, Adele's sophomore release "21" overtook Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side Of The Moon", the band 1971 masterpiece. This jump marks "21" as the seventh highest sel...Read More

Whitney Houston, who ruled as pop music's queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, died Saturday. She was 48.
Beverly Hills police Lt. Mark Rosen told reporters outside the Beverly Hilton that Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. in her room on the fourth floor of the hotel. Her body remained there and Beverly Hills detectives were investigating. TMZ.com reported that her body was found in the hotel room's bathtub.
"There were no obvious signs of any criminal intent," Rosen said.

British pop super star Adele is still recovering from vocal surgery, which she had last November. However, that didn't stop her from saying a few words on the late Etta James, who passed away last week. You can catch the full transcript from Adele's blog below.
"What a lady Etta James was. She was the ultimate original. Her voice was breath taking and her songs are reflections we all recognise in some way or another. Its an honour every time I hear her voice. I saw her at BB Kings in New York a few years ago, and it was something I will remember forever. Thank you to Et...Read More

I fell in love with young Xenia on NBC's new singing talent show, The Voice. Although still in high school when she competed, her raw talent was evident to almost anyone who heard her sing. Her voice sounded far more mature than that of a sixteen year old. She had a way of phrasing lyrics so that she could make any song she covered her own. Her first EP dropped on iTunes today and it is already topping the charts. All four songs are a breath of fresh air for the pop music genre. I especially love "Summer Dress." It is my favorite song on the EP. The tone of her voice is just wonderful to liste...Read More

It's that time of the week again! New release Tuesday is always a day I look forward too. Usually, it's quite the exciting day, but lately I have been rather disappointed every Tuesday when I check the new releases and 3/4's of the stuff that came out is crap.
I got a little excited today though, with good reason.
Today we have new releases from:
Young Jeezy-"TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition"
Common- "The Dreamer, The Believer"
Radiohead- "The Daily Mail & Suitcase"
Progress in Color- "Aruba"
Of Monsters And Men- "Into the Woods"
The Sub...Read More

Canadian electro pop star Lights has released a music video for the title track off her new record, Siberia. You can watch the video below, and catch her on tour all next year. Catchy song!
Sidenote: For some reason buzznet does not allow video embedding, so I found a copy of the video on YouTube. It's not the whole thing, but there is a link in the video description to watch the whole thing. Enjoy!

As previously stated Google has not said how long they plan to run this promotion for, but the g...Read More
