Mayer Hawthorne – The Walk ft. Rizzle Kicks


I love this, and I’d be surprised if you didn’t too. Mayer Hawthorne and Rizzle Kicks seem to gel really well together on this track, ‘The Walk’. It’s the American artists upcoming single, which is available to buy now. The visually brilliant video was filmed in just 3 hours in Soho, and despite that short time, it comes across brilliantly – like every video with the UK duo in.

Ed Sheeran & Yelawolf – The Slumdon Bridge EP (PREVIEW)


Ed posted the the 1 minute preview of his collaboration EP with rapper, Yelawolf – signed to Shady Records, if you didn’t know.

‘You Don’t Know (For Fucks Sake)’ was posted a week ago, and has been one of those songs which sounds good on first listen, but then keeps digging at you to listen to it again. It’s now engraved in my musical mind. I’m ever growing in love with it.

But this track on the preview. WOW. 1 minutes worth of it, and it captivated me. Sounds like Ed didn’t just throw out the best of the 4 tracks last week then.

Recorded in 10 hours, over in the US, ‘The Slumdon Bridge EP’, will be out “soon as possible”. I mean, now would do Ed?

FOr now, enjoy this preview, and then you can download and listen to the previously released, ‘You Don’t Know…’ HERE

Adele and Tinie to collaborate?


20120108-135910.jpg

Adele and Tinie Tempah are arguably the two biggest artists in the UK, and have done pretty decent jobs of taking over the US too. And to hear the continuing news of a collaboration, is obviously, and rightly, massive.

The duet plans were scupper ed last year, probably down to how Adele’s year just took off, I guess. But 2012 seems to be the year it’ll happen. Speaking to Q Magazine, Tinie said, “I want to work with Adele this year. We started to talk about it, but because of how crazy things went for her we never really got round to completing that conversation.” Imagine how many weeks that will be at number 1!

On his own new material, Tinie said, “The main goal is to get the new album out and it do really well – better than the last one. And do a world tour.”

Adele Dominating As Usual…


So, it’s hard to argue that Adele had one of the most successful years in music history, right? Well, yeah it wasn’t just in the UK though!

  • ‘Rolling In The Deep’, and her album, ’21’ have been announced as the highest selling singles and albums in America in 2011 – both selling 5.8 millions copies!!
  • ’21’ is the first album in the US to sell over 5 million copies since 2004 as well!
  • Her album is also top of the Billboard charts over in the US, again. It’s now gone 14 weeks non-consecutively at the top!
  • Oh, there’s more. ’21’ is looking like it will be back at the top of the UK Album Charts on Sunday – making it 19 non-consecutive weeks!
  • And if it does (it will), ’21’, will become the longest-topping album in the UK for 40 years!

She is just incredible. Amazingly talented. And also, I’d say, impossible to hate – even if you dislike her music, Adele as a person is just so likeable!

There’s a few days left to watch the stunning higlights from her performence at the Albert Hall… watch here: Adele_Live_at_the_Royal_Albert_Hal

Tinie Tempah to launch own clothing line!


Yeah, the UK star has taken a break from dominating the US, to announce that’s he’s launching his own clothing line!

“I really want to stay away from that whole hip-hop cliché – ‘He’s a rapper turned fashion designer, turned actor turned property developer.”  Tinie said, speaking to Q Magazine, he added, “I want people to walk into a shop and not immediately think, ‘Tinie Tempah’, but think, ‘That’s a nice shirt’ or ‘That’s a nice tee.’… Basically I’ve tried to make it into a standalone brand, like Folk, Joe Casely-Hayford or House Of Billiam. There’s a lot of creative designers in the UK — we should support more!”

Got to say, I reckon that clothing line will look pretty amazing based upon Tinie’s stylings!
