Not even a month ago, news broke that William Orbit, the producer of Ray of Light, would be working with Madonna again on her upcoming album. Just yesterday, Madonnarama revealed that Orbit is being joined by Jean Baptiste Kouame, a songwriter behind the Black Eyed Peas (“Boom Boom Pow”), Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Kelis, and Kid Cudi and producer of WØ tracks.
Madonnarama also revealed that, to speed up recording time, Orbit is taking a different approach to putting tracks together. In the past, such as when he worked with the singer on Ray of Light, Madonna recorded all demos, which were then reworked by producers. […] Read more »
The 'Truly Madly Deeply' pop singer/songwriter surprised fans by uploading a cinematic new music video for 'Black Out The Sun' merely hours after posting an audio track of 'Bloodstained Heart', which was first heard on an X Factor Australia commercial.
'Black Out The Sun' will serve as Darren's second international single from his forthcoming fourth solo album "Secret Codes and Battleships". The song, co-written by Darren and Swedish pop producer Carl Falk (who also hemmed his last single 'Talk Talk Talk'), has been described as a "beautiful black rose of love lost".
Darren explained in a Facebook post that the song was about "not wanting to be in a world without love" and how the video was a poetic reflection of the lyrics.[…] Read more »
The 29-year old singer premiered '1+1' on her official website a week after completing her promo concert "4 Intimate Nights with Beyoncé" in New York's Roseland Ballroom, which saw tickets to all four shows selling out in a minute.
The video for '1+1' is simple, sensual affair - directed by Beyoncé herself in collaboration with Lauren Briet and Ed Burke, the latter did her recent "Year of 4" documentary". In the video, the Grammy Award-winning star is shown in a variety of close-ups - behind a cascading wall of water, standing by herself with lights glistening off her moistened skin, and soaking in a bath with flowers. In a lot of ways, the production of '1+1' recalls erotic 70's arthouse films with its psychadelic visual effects and cinematic feel.
Watch the video for '1+1' here:

If anyone knows how to ring in the weekend, it is Rihanna.
Rihanna’s new video, "Cheers (Drink to That)," officially (and appropriately) premiered on thirsty Thursday, and in celebration of her latest visual feat, the boisterous Barbadian announced its arrival, tweeting, "It's here #CHEERS to you #RihannaNavy!!!"
The visual most certainly lives up to the song’s hype. It begins with a clip of starstruck revelers chanting Rihanna’s name over and over again, followed by over four minutes of enviable footage of the star’s charmed life, from the stage, to backstage, to the bar, to island getaways, to social fetes around the world, and finally, back to that stage, this time shared with rap titans Jay-Z and Kanye West (also known as The Throne, but that’s another story). Ceelo Green and Avril Lavigne, whose vocals tin[…] Read more »

Jessie J will release 'Domino' on iTunes the following day and we can expect for the track to impact Top 40 radios across America on 6 September. The single will serve as a perfect return to the charts for the singer, who will be opening for Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" tour in November.
A lot of fans have already noted the similarities between 'Domino' and Perry's own radio-ready hits, with both artists having notably worked with the same producer: Dr Luke.[…] Read more »
Justin Bieber’s been in the studio working on his second album for a few months. But today on Twitter, he announced he’s putting together another release – a Christmas album. He wrote: "So it's true...been in the studio doing something special for christmas. we are going to try and raise alot of money this year for charity!"
At the moment, there’s no proper release date for the album, and the pop star hasn’t mentioned the types of tracks he’s putting together – covers of traditional songs or his own – or if any artists are making guest appearances. Considering the singer’s output so far, the latter is likely.[…] Read more »
