Mariah Carey performs on Kelly & Michael Disneyland...

Continues to flourish...

Must suck when your label boss unwittingly implies your music is destined to fail, but Mariah Carey is rising above it. 

She gets more confident with every performance and though it's not perfect, she's progressing. It would be nice if she performed other songs off the album though because 'Vision of Love' is not a favourite of mine, and I don't care for 'Infinity' at all.

Jessie J kicks off GMA Summer Concert Series...

Burnin' up the stage...

I'm actually surprised Jessie J got this gig because her album 'Sweet Talker' didn't sell very well, and she stopped promoting it after 'Bang Bang.' 

She was most likely pitching for 'Flashlight' off the 'Pitch Perfect 2' soundtrack and threw in 'Bang Bang' and 'Burnin' Up' for good measure. Her pert little ass looked so good in those tight sparkly pants and she delivered a dynamic vocal. Sexy performance with loadsa charisma!

Jennifer Lopez covers US Weekly’s ‘Best Bodies Issue’...

Sizzles in bikini shoot...

I saw some pics of Jennifer Lopez the other day, looking every bit of 45-years-old. 

I know it was down to harsh lighting capturing every wrinkle, pore and zit. However, I found it refreshing seeing the normally picture perfect J.Lo looking not so perfect. And even when she's not touched up to the nines, like her bikini-clad cover shoot for Us Weekly's 'Best Bodies' issue, Jen probably still looks better than most on her worst day.

Leona Lewis announces ‘I Am’ album release date...

Due late summer...

As well as finalising the tracklist, and working on a deluxe edition, Leona Lewis confirms September 11th for the release of her new album 'I Am.' 

That means fans will get at least one more single before the album drops. This is good, because it leaves time for her latest song to enjoy some momentum. After just 8 days, the music video for 'Fire Under My Feet' has passed 1 million views, which is progress for Leona.

Discuss: "Mariah Carey’s chance of another #1 single is unrealistic..."

Facts spoken about MC's career...

In a new Billboard interview with LA Reid, it was noted that it's been six years since former No1's Queen Mariah Carey scored a top 10 song. 

Reid thinks that getting radio play at this point in her career is a huge accomplishment, because radio doesn’t cater to veteran artists or legends. He speaks real truth when he said that radio caters to in-the-moment stars and not icons that have been in the game for 25 years.

New Music: Little Mix - 'Black Magic' (new single)...

Sweet & sugary 80s pop...

Little Mix's retro new single 'Black Magic' has taken a leak today. 

The uplifting tune is very 80s, very girly and has that cookie cutter pop sound in the sugary sense. Cyndi Lauper's 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' comes to mind on first listen. The chanting is what identifies the song as a Little Mix single. Seems like they are chasing international success, which is why they have opted for the safe route and went for a more commercial lead single.

New Music: Christina Aguilera – 'Anywhere But Here'...

Broadway musical 'Finding Neverland...'

Christina Aguilera, who is preparing to serve us "caviar ratchet" on her next album, gives Gary Barlow and Elliot Kennedy’s 'Anywhere But Here' a beautiful make-over. 

The soaring ballad sees Aggy delivering a subtle restrained vocal over a sweeping string section and piano. She's now mastered the art of not over-singing, proving she can sing with depth and conviction without sounding like a tortured cat. Bravo!

New Music: Monica feat. Lil Wayne – ‘Just Right for Me’ (new single)...

Produced by Polow Da Don...

Monica's new song ‘Just Right for Me’ has finally arrived, and it's not bad at all. 

The booming club track introduces a very average verse from Weezy, and Monica's vocal kind of gets lost in the heavy production. It's not lead single material, but it's cute for what it is. Monica is singing her husband some serious praises on the track, which is lifted off her upcoming new album 'Code Red.' Check it out.

Mariah Carey performs ‘Vision of Love’ & ‘Infinity’ on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’...

Promoted greatest hits compilation...

Kudos where kudos is due, this was a very stellar performance from Mariah Carey.

Although that whistle note was clearly lipped, she gave live vocals and delivered a more polished showing than what we saw at the Billboard Music Awards a couple of days ago. This is probably one of her best televised performances in years, and she's had many a disaster. Her greatest hits compilation '#1 to Infinity' is now out in stores.

Janelle Monáe & Jidenna perform ‘Yoga’ on ‘Fallon’...

First offering from new Wondaland imprint...

This ladies and gentlemen, is what LIVE singing and dancing should look like.

Janelle totally rocked the stage with her new single 'Yoga,' alongside in house band The Roots and her collaborator Jidenna. If booty popping isn't your thing, it might be the only thing you do after catching a glimpse of Janelle's body rolling set. ‘Yoga’ is featured on her upcoming EP ‘Wondaland Presents The Eephus.’

Video premiere: K. Michelle – ‘Hard to Do’...

Zebra bit very Rihanna's 'Rude Boy'...

I think the fella's will like this one. All you see is a big artificial ass more manufactured than anything seen on Nicki Minaj.

K. Michelle isn't just mingling with flamingos by the tub, she is twerking for zebras (that bit looks familiar), and dapples with lesbian sex in the mud. Sound like every man's wet dream, thanks to director Child Basquiat. ‘Hard to Do’ serves as the fourth single off latest album 'Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart?'

New Music: Trey Songz – ‘About You’...

'TRIGGA Reloaded' due June 23rd...

For his new tune 'About You,' Trey Songz samples Janet Jackson's 'Son Of A Gun', which also samples Carly Simon's 'You’re So Vain.'

On closer inspection, the sample is closer to the Janet version than it is to the Carly version, and comprises tinkering synths over laidback R&B production. It sees vibrato boy showering his woman with lots of praises, and while it's not bad, he could still do so much better.
