Welcome back Christina.
Hear that? That’s the sound of little girls’ hearts beating as they watching Justin Bieber’s new video for “Never Let You Go.” Hear that other sound? That’s the sound of the same girls collectively stabbing pins into their voodoo doll of Paige Hurd, who plays his love interest in the clip.
The mid-tempo ballad is one of the weakest tracks musically on “My World 2.0,” which is sure to come in at No. 1this week. However. lyrically it says everything his tween audience wants to hear like the following: “It’s like an angel came down and took me Heaven/because when I stare in your eyes, it couldn’t be better.” Swoon!!!
P Diddy has unveiled, “Hello, Good Morning,” the first single from “Morning Train to Paris.” The track also features Dirty Money and T.I.
Where to begin? The poodle with the bloody raw roast? The Wax Works at the family reunion? The ventriloquist dummies? How about the singing tracheotomy or the eel pulled out of a very unlikely orifice?
So when will we get a new album from Janet Jackson? It turns out it could be quite some time.
Erykah Badu has never been one to shy away from statements-- personal, social or political--and she’s making a big one on all three fronts with her new video for “Window Seat,” from “New Amerykah, Part ll: Return of the Ankh.”
As the temperatures start to heat up, so do the releases. March 30 brings new albums from two superstars: Usher and Alan Jackson, as well as a releases from a number of proven hitmakers, including Erykah Badu and Barenaked Ladies, and a collection from fictional conjoined twins, Evelyn Evelyn.
Robert Plant starts a U.S. tour on July 13. Sure, it’s no Led Zeppelin, but he’s joined by an amazing group, dubbed the Band of Joy, that includes vocalist Patty Griffin, multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott, and guitarist Buddy Miller. Plant historians will appreciate the band’s moniker as a nod to the group Plant and Zeppelin drummer John Bonham belonged to pre-Led Zep.
He’s recording the new album with the above-named musicians, but, so far, no release date has been set.
The new album, whenever it comes out, will be Plant’s first since his multi-Grammy winning collaboration with Alison Krauss, “Raising Sand.” The two attempted to record a follow-up last year, but it has since been shelved.
Below are the tour dates. More are to be added.
