New Video: Dele- F U Right (Only For The Grown And Sexy)

Following the infectious single 'Every Step', which was released last summer, 23-year-old singer Dele, drops his third single 'F U Right', via BTTA Music, March 22nd.
'F U Right', taken from the singer's EP 'Coming To Age', is a steamy RnB track where the East-Londoner explains all the things he'll do to his girlfriend. The video that accompanies the track was shot by acclaimed director Luke Biggins and will imminently be shown on various music TV channels.
The single, written by Dele, was aired exclusively on Choice FM, championed by Jenny Francis, and is currently receiving extensive rotation by other Choice FM DJs. The track is also set to pick up support from other radio stations across the country.
Having already supported the likes of Dru Hill, Joe, Styles P and Blackstreet in the UK, Dele will be embarking on his first international tour, aptly titled 'Out Of Towner', this May across Atlanta, USA, where he is currently working on some projects.

Amy Winehouse Takes Up Weeding???

The Back To Black singer has taken to gardening as she finds it very theraputic. The troubled singer has been getting tips from Alan Titchmarsh's gradening books and getting her fingers green.

She is now turning her garden in to a place of zen to relax in, but that hasn't stop her from recording, with a session booked in with Nas and Damian Marley who are in London for a concert on Thursday at Wembley Arena.

I wonder what she's planting in her garden...???

Jose Mourihno: 'I Was Hours From Managaing England'

Former Chelsea and Inter Milan manger, Jose Mourihno, has admitted he was hours from signing up to manage the English national team.

He says the job was offered to him by the FA, and he had practically accepted before having a change of heart at the eleventh hour.

He reconsidered because of the fact he would not be in competition week in week out and other than playing the odd international every couple of months, he would be watching his players in their domestic leagues and just sat in his office and this did not suit him. He instead pulled out of the deal and waited for the right job to come along, which was eventually Inter Milan who he would go on to win the Champions League with.

I'm sure there are many England fans who will be a bit upset with this news as England have been very inconsistent over the last couple years under Italian, Fabio Capello, and let's not mention the South Africa World Cup debacle.

The charasmatic Potugese manager does still hold hopes of returning to the Premier League in the near future, but to which team? It's rumoured Alex Ferguson will retire after breaking Liverpools record of 19 Premier League titles, many an Arsenal fan are now thinking Arsene Wengers time at the helm must now come to an end and Roberto Mancini is still trying to change history by taking Manchester City in to the Champions League.

Who knows...

Lil' Willow Smith Reps For #TeamRihanna???

Lil' Willow Smith (it seems...) is growing in confidence and took to Twitter to address Chris Breezy's latest tantrum where he stormed out of Good Morning America's studio's and broke a window after being grilled about the 'Rihanna episode', when he was actually there to promote his new album F.A.M.E.

The pint sized popstar (apparently...) tweeted...

The tweet was later deleted and another one posted via Roc Nation reps saying...

I did think it was a bit suspect when I first read it, considering she's only 10 years old, but then I also thought she could be a big RiRi fan and reppin' #Team Rihanna???

Rihanna Concert Ticket Sales Not Doing So Well

Looks like RiRi is going to have to cancel some of her 'Loud' tour dates due to poor ticket sales.

The Bajan beauty, who is currently on the road, is struggling to fill venues on various stops of the tour. It's been reported her scheduled show in Boston on July 24th, which also features Cee-Lo Green, has only sold 3,700 tickets and needs at least 15,000 to break even.

It was suggested the singer only use theatres and smaller venues, but this didn't happen and her excessive demands are not being justified by the money being made.

I never really thought Rihanna would have any probs filling arenas, guess I was wrong.

I think with some rearranging/re-scheduling, things can be worked out(?)

Ja Rule Looking At More Time In The Big House...

Jeffery Jeffery Jeffery...

So on top of starting a two year jail sentence in June, Ja Rule, real name Jeffery Atkins, has pleaded guilty to tax evasion agreed to pay over $1.1 million in tax debts and IRS penalties. The rapper pleaded guilty to three counts of failing to file a tax return, even though he was touring and releasing albums between 2004-2008.

Each count of tax evasion carries a 'maximum' sentence of one year, let's do the math-

Gun posession= 2 years
Three counts of tax evasion= 3 years

= 5 years!

Looks like Ja could be gone for a while...

L.A. Reid To Be US X Factor Judge

L.A. Reid has reportedly left Def Jam Records and been appointed the first judges seat on the American version of The X Factor.

After months of rumours the final steps are being made to secure the judges who will sit on the panel with Simon Cowell. It also looks like Cheryl Cole will not be joining Simon after recently becoming quoted as saying 'I never stood a chance of becoming a judge'.

Mariah Carey and Nicole Scherzinger are other names that have been thrown in the pot, but with Mariah about to drop Nick Cannon's twins, I doubt that very much!

The star-studded affair could also be topped off with Enrique Iglesias as the shows host.

This US X Factor may be worth checking out after all.

Rising Starr: Xploder

Hailing from the East London Grime scene, aspiring artist Xploder is about to embark on his musical journey, with a transition of style from boy to man, underground to commercial. The name alone may seem intimidating to most, but it’s simply just an expression, for the unexpected talent Xploder embraces within his inner shell. As quite a reserved individual, he is known to astound music lovers with his explosive lyrical energy and musical abilities.

The progression of Xploder’s previous two singles “Don’t Trust You” and “So True” has brought him new fans as well as entertaining old ones. He is now ready to unleash his forth-coming EP Line of Fire, which has already gained support from radio stations such as BBC 1Xtra, BBC Radio 1, Kiss 100 and Choice FM following the “Fly like a G6” remix he did to give a fans a taste of what’s to come.

With personal influences from a varied list of artists, such as Dizzee Rascal, Coldplay, Jay-Z, Ludacris, Michael Jackson, Nas, Outkast, Stevie Wonder and UB40, he is definitely set to establish a new niche in today’s music market.

Having been on the musical circuit for the past 4 years, Xploder has gained a huge amount of exposure. He initially started rapping, producing his own material, then going on to become a member of the infamous, 'Highly Rated Camp.’ Within this urban collective he was able to further his musical talents alongside his best friend Beckz Winter and brother 'D.Dark.’ The success of his music, independently and as part of the Highly Rated Entertainment company was recognised across the underground scene, with many appearances made on UK pirate and internet radio stations such as Mystic, Deja Vu, Rinse, Heat, Axe and Manic. The breakthrough across the underground market, also lead to appearances and airtime plays on commercial radio stations.

So what do you think of Xploder???
