New Album for Yuna!

Posted on October 28, 2013


Unless you didn't know, Yuna is an amazing Malaysian-born singer-songwriter about to take the world by storm!


Yuna's most anticipated second American album "Nocturnal" is out this week. The Album is a collaboration with the famous DJ Chad Hugo from The Neptunes and Robin Hannibal from the LA based Indie Duo Rhye.

Yuna's meteoric rise on the Malaysian indie music scene was largely due to the strong following she gained when she joined Myspace in 2006. In 2008, she released the single "Deeper Conversation" off her first Album which became a huge hit. Yuna comes from a strong jazz folk influence but when she moved to America 3 years ago, she learned how to mix R&B, hip-hop and Pop and started working with world famous Producers like Pharrell Williams who produced her single "Live Your Life" in January 2012. 

On April 24, 2012, Yuna's U.S. debut self-titled Album was released and debuted at No.23 on the Pop chart and No.86 on the Top 100 Albums on iTunes. Accolades from fans and critics alike, such as Billboard, NPR, Elle, NY Times, Vibe, Allure, Seventeen, MTV Style, Marie Claire and National Geographic all raved about her because her sound is “fresh, honest and deeply personal." She has toured with Graffiti6 and performed at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. She also contributed to the Savages soundtrack on the track, "Here Comes the Sun". In 2012, Yuna was recognized with a National Youth Icon Award, awarded by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, for her exceptional achievements in arts.

Yuna recently signed with Verve Music Group. Multiple Grammy-winning producer David Foster, who heads the creative operations of Verve, tweeted: "I'm really excited about the next hot artist to join Verve Music. Stay tuned and keep an eye out for Yuna in 2013".

Britney's Most Personal Album

Posted on October 28, 2013



Britney Spears says "Britney Jean", her new Album out December 3rd, will be her "most personal record." The artwork was released on Friday (October 25)


"I poured my heart and soul into this album, and it's been an incredible journey. I've learned a lot about myself, and as I am finishing, I am reminded of the incredible foundation that has supported me for the last 15 years," she wrote in the handwritten letter. "I can't believe this is my eighth studio album and I know I keep telling you that it is my most personal record yet, but it's true and I'm really proud of that." 


Britney also thanked many of the folks who helped her work on the album. "I have been through a lot in the past few years and it has really inspired me to dig deeper and write songs that I think everyone can relate to. Working with people like Sia, William Orbit, and of course has been an amazing experience. They have listened to all of my ideas and helped me bring them to life," she said. "There are a lot of really fun, upbeat dance songs, but it was important to me that I show my strength, and my attitude, and my vulnerability. Of course, I also have some surprises for you guys."


The album's release will come just weeks before Britney takes the stage in Las Vegas for her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood on December 27.


The announcement also revealed that "Perfume", a ballad she had previously described as "really beautiful," will be available on November.


Lady Gaga's "Do What U Want," her duet with R. Kelly from the upcoming Album "ARTPOP" is No.1 in 64 countries!

"The song hit No.1 on iTunes in 64 countries," says Dennis Dennehy, head of artist strategy and media for Interscope Records. "We are overwhelmed by the worldwide response + excitement for 'Do You Want' feat. R. Kelly & are happy to announce it as 2nd Single!"

Coupled with what Dennehy calls "the immediate and overwhelming worldwide reaction" to the song, the critical response to "Do What U Want" has been blindingly positive. "It's Official: Lady Gaga's New Song Featuring R. Kelly Is The Best Thing," announced a Buzzfeed headline, while the Daily Beast called the song "pure pop heaven," Slate described it as "surprisingly beautiful" and Popjustice gave the song an 8 out of 10 rating. The single zoomed to the top of the iTunes Store's top sellers list and will likely debut high on next week's Single charts. It's projected to sell between 150,000 and 160,000 digital downloads by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, according to industry sources. 

"Applause" has stayed in the World's Top 10 Singles for over two months.

But Gaga's artistic vision is not sales numbers. "I write for the music not the charts," she posted on Sunday night before the release of "Do What U Want," referencing the perceived "battle" between "Roar" and "Applause" that stemmed from the singles' concurrent release periods last August.

J-Pop boy band Kanjani's "Juke Box" is the World's best-selling album having shifted  323.000 in its first week, according to Oricon. It's the first no.1 by a Japanese album since Bump Of Chicken's best-of compilation "Bump Of Chicken I (1999-2004)'" with 173.000 sales  that week.

"Juke Box" leads 12 new-entries on this week's charts. The second new entry comes from rock legend Pearl Jam at No.2 with their tenth album 'Lightning Bolt' and 281.000 in sales. Pearl Jam's debut album "Ten" has sold 17 million copies to date.

Paul McCartney's "New" debuts at No.3 with sales of 165.000. Solo and with the Beatles, Paul McCartney has had over 50 hit Singles in the World's best-selling top 10 Singles chart, with more than half going to No.1. Paul McCartney is the most successful artist and songwriter of all time.

Miley Cyrus' former No.1 album "Bangerz" slips tp No.4 with sales of 131.000. Drake's new former No.1 Album "Nothing Was The Same'" closes the top 5 with sales of 82.000 copies


What a week it’s been for Katy Perry! She’s just released her third studio album "Prism", celebrated her 29th birthday and now topped the World's Best-selling Singles Chart for an incredible 9 weeks! This is the 2nd longest running #1 of 2013 after Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." Katy is also No.1 in Australia for the 9th consecutive week!

At No.7 is Drake's "Hold On We're going Home". Lady Gaga is at No.8 with her Dance Hit "Applause". Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" is at No.9 and closing the top 10 is Ellie Goulding with "Burn"
