New Single Alert – Bjork - Crystalline

At SCP we loved the early days of Bjork, who couldn't love Big Time Sensuality?
However, we have sometimes found it hard to really "get" some of her musical offerings of late! Having said that we always said we would bring you all pop, so here you go! Bjork is back with her new single Crystalline. Taken from her forthcoming seventh studio album Biophilia. 
What to expect from the track, well some oddly weird with her unique vocals, xylophones, crazy lyrics and jungle beats (we kid you not!) we are going to leave it up to you to see what you think.  

Beyonce does Glastonbury!

Definitely seems to be Beyonce's year! First receiving Billboard Award for her contribution to music, she headlined at Glastonbury this year.  Powering onto the stage with Crazy In Love with firework being set off in the sky, she certainly knew how to make an entrance, performing hits from her ALL her career from Destiny's Child to her latest album 4, including a cover of Kings of Leon Sex on Fire to Etta James At Last, just to keep everyone in the audience happy. Check out her closing song Halo  to a crowd a "few" thousand! Well done B!

New Video Alert - Darren Hayes - Talk Talk Talk

Darren Hayes is back with a new single, accompanying video and soon a new album called Secret Codes And Battleships. The Australian singer first track off his fourth studio album is Talk Talk Talk, which is full of synths and reminds us of his Savage Garden days. The collage type video is directed by his partner of two years Richard Cullen and on the B-Side of the track is a cover of Madonna’s Angel.

And what can we expect of the new album, lets get Hayes to tell us "A lot of the theme of the record is really finding my purpose. Many of the songs on the record talk about betrayal, a betrayal of friendship, that line between friendship and love. They are universal themes,"

Hmm, on the light hearted side then Darren.  

The album is due out in October. Check out the video for Talk Talk Talk below 

POP FACT: Darren collects Star Wars memorabilia and he even auditioned for a role in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

New Track Alert – Maroon 5 - Moves Like Jagger (Feat Christina)

So we reckon this track is great! Hands down! Its funky, full of guitar rifts, radio friendly and an awesome track to accompany your summer sound track! Moves Like Jagger is a collaboration by Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera both mentors on the new hit show The Voice!
 Here's the polished version...

 Also Adam and Christina have just performed the track on The Voice. Check out their live performance below

New Single Alert – Mary J Blige - Feel Inside (Feat Nicki Minaj)

Lets get something clear straight away. We LOVE Mary J. Blige.  We been a fan for a while! Well years actually! Love Is All We Need, Give Me You, No More Drama & Be Without You are a few of our fav tracks! And can you imagine our excitement when we hear she has team up with the fabulous alter ego herself Nicki Minaj.

 Feel Inside is taken from Blige’s tenth studio album My Life 2: The Journey Continues due out later this year! Though not received well by fan’s in either camp, we like the track but must agree it is nothing ground breaking but pleasant enough for the radio!

New Video Alert - 360 - Throw It Away (feat Josh Pyke)

New Single Alert – Sariah - All About Sex

Following on from her debut single Deep N Luv, Sariah is back with a song about sex. No, hang on… yep definitely about sex! The dance pop track is basically singing about a relationship “all about sex” – is that a “friends” with benefits situation or a f.buddy?

While we ponder this, check out the track below, where there are some great remixes by Digital Dog, Ray Roc & Gabe Ramos, Almighty, and S.T.F.U. as well as the multi talented Valentin. All available via iTunes now

The Next Amy Winehouse - Dionne Bromfield?

Dionne Bromfield is 15years old however has a very much mature sound to offer. The god daughter of Amy Winehouse has a distinctive Motown feel to her music and is releasing her second album Good For The Soul, on her god mothers record label Amy’s Lioness Records on 4th July. Check out a full album sampler below!

This Dionne has more chance of getting chart success at the minute after Amy's recent performance

Introducing - Dalal

Here is Dalal. She is Austrian. Dalal is One To Watch in 2011. Her debut dance/pop track Taste The Night is about dancing close to someone in complete darkness and letting your heartbeat take over. Dalal most probably explains the meaning better saying “Imagine all the lights going out and all you can rely on is the beat in your heart and the feeling of the person next to you. We realized there is no club song that really plays with the idea of the lights turning off completely during the chorus leaving you with nothing but the feel of the movement around you".

We obviously need to take her to some of the clubs we frequent! *ahem*
It is an infectious upbeat track that will have the dance floors pumping and we like it and look forward to hearing more! Welcome to the pop world Dalal!

We think we might need to hire our SCP reader soon as his recommendations are getting our attention.

The Wanted - Naked

So our last pictures of Blue naked went down so well, we thought, well lets feature another boy band naked too! Yes they may be from 2008, however here is The Wanted's member Max George stripping for the girls and the boys!
Any complaints? Didn't think so!

Video ALERT - Britney - I Wanna Go

Beyoncé does W Magazine

Check out the fierce pictures of Beyoncé on the cover of the July issue of W magazine. Photographer Patrick Demarchelier captured the Ring The Alarm singer, appearing in a 10-page fashion spread, wearing the likes of Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and a Philip Tracey beret. Check out the pics below.

Chart Watch - UK

So its been a while since we check out the UK Charts and we are so glad we did this week as its oozing with pop greatness!

In the top 20 you have the likes of the BEP’s Don’t Stop The Party, alter ego herself Nicki Minaj’s Super Bass and then the new Lady Gaga great track poor (run out of budget) video, Edge of Glory. All which have been featured on SCP over the last few weeks including Ms J.Lo is at No.10 with I’m Into You. The latino singer currently has 2 track in the top twenty! ( yep we have level’s of smugness right now!)

However it’s the UK top 10 that got our paws up this week, check it out!

Aleo Blacc has been around for a while after releasing his 9th studio album this year, however, we think this year will be his year. This American soul singer, rapper/musican has a very cool vibe to his music when you look at popular music like Adele riding high in the charts.

We are SO glad at the SCP office that this track is riding high in the UK Top 10. We featured Ms Stan the other week, with her infectious track Mr Saxobeat. It a corker of a track, check it out (again)

Then at No.2 ( Not sure why it is not No.1) is this awesome track by Mr Calvin Harris and the gorgeous Kelis, with their collaboration on Bounce. We dare you not to like this track!
Then finally in this BUMPER issue of Chart Watch - UK, we bring you Changed The Way You Kiss Me, a high energy dance track from Example. Taken from their third album (yes there have been two before) this track saw off all competition to take the No.1 spot.

Video ALERT - The Wanted - Glad You Came

New UK boy band sensation The Wanted have released their new video for their track Glad You Came. A Ballad/Ibiza dance number see's the boys "frolicking" with girls in ibiza and hitting the clubs (I.D please boys!). Insert the boys stripping off and you have a sure fired hit! This is the second single of their forthcoming yet untitled sophomore album. They are currently touring the UK, surely making some girls (& Boys) hearts swoon!
BTW, Here is Max George from The Wanted Naked! More on this soon!

Cheryl FINALLY speaks out!

Our fav Geordie Lass, Cheryl Cole has finally broken her silence since the U.S X-Factor shambles that occurred, posting on her website a message to her fans. Though no mentioning the recent very public sacking, where Nasty Simon Cowell brought public embarrassment to the Girls Aloud singer (yes we are still blaming him!), the 3 Words singer refers to these events as  the "weirdest past few weeks (nothing unusual there though.)" she has had in recent times and thanks her LOYAL fans (Obviously Cowell is not one!)

Here's the full press release, taken from her website...

Hi my Gorgeous ones.

It's me! I wanted to talk to you all direct, and first and foremost thank
you all for your continued love, unbelievable LOYALTY and support and remind
you that I love you all to bits.

Where do i start? I have had the weirdest past few weeks (nothing unusual
there though.) I wouldn't even know how to begin to tell you all about it.
What I do know for certain is that I have the BEST, most unbelievable people
out there, who I feel so lucky to call my support system. You never fail to
amaze me. I have been reading your letters and opening my prezzies ( I feel
very spoilt ) and hearing all of your kind, special and inspiring things you
want to say to me.

I feel your presence and strength always, and no matter what decision I make
or what it is I'm facing, I appreciate you all more than you'll ever know.
It also breaks my heart a little when i hear that some of you worry about me
and need to know that I am ok, so I want to PROMISE you that I am absolutely
fine and more than ok!

I have had the time that I have not had in so long to just chill with my
loved ones and do the normal things that I like to do. See my friends and
family and be with my doggys :D. It feels long overdue and sooooo good, even
my feet are happy to not have to wear a pair of high heels hehe..

You are my little soldiers and you mean the world to me. Remember what I tell
you, stay strong, keep calm and carry on ;) I'll speak to you all soon when
I have some new news, until then I salute you :)
Lots of love and cuddles. Love me CC x 

Here's a remix we love...

Get some help Ms Winehouse. Please

Sad new’s reaches us that Amy Winehouse has pulled out of the rest of her European tour following a performance that can only be described back to “the old Amy”. Appearing slightly out of it and mumbling words to her track Just Friends, the singer fell on stage, took her shoes off and appeared lost and disorientated. Check out the video below ( if you can )
We were thrilled to hear of here come back a few months ago, however we think she is trying to run before she can work. From all at SCP Ms Winehouse, get yourself sorted and comeback to why we love you, like the below!

Anyone just a little bit excited?

We are! Though she is causing havoc across the pop world for covering a Madonna classic and reports are starting to filter in about her tour being visually spectacular however, how do we put this, full of french mime, we still get excited about new Britney Spear videos! Check out the new teaser clip for I Wanna Go. It one of SCP fav's of the album!
She looks good!

Lady Gaga lets down her Hair!

When we say let down, we actually mean totally loses it! Lady Gaga performed on The Paul O'Grady show the other night performing with shaved head to her track Hair from her latest record Born This Way. The mother monster performed the track with her trustee piano and trade mark wig not too far away! The only advice we would give is not let that wig get too close to those flames luv!

She then followed up that performance of You & I, a Elton John-esq rock ballad that SCP feels is one of the greatest tracks on Born This Way. Enjoy

Comeback Alert - Madonna

Well we wondered when the Queen of Pop would resurface and put out a new record and it seems Madonna is ready to begin working on her next studio album as early as next month. The follow up to Hard Candy was tweeted by her manager saying “she has a good idea on which producers she will be working with,” but spilled no names.

Well your Madgesty, it would be good to see what you comeback with since the pop charts have been over taken by the Gaga/Spears/Knowles of the world.
We’ll keep you posted! Here is some classic Madonna at MTV Video Music Awards taken from her YouTube channel.

New Video Alert - Havana Brown - We Run The Night

Need a club track to keep you dancing through Saturday night? Here is the debut offering from Havana Brown. The DJ turned singer describes her sound as cross between “R&B and dance music,” the Melbourne beauty. “I want to be able to play my own songs in the club. So that’s definitely where I want to go. I’m developing my style and going through the whole process of that.”

We this sexy kitten new track We Run The Night will be getting the kids pumping on the dancefloor across Australia. Check it out.

New VidEO ALERT - Lady Gaga - The Edge of Glory

New York streets, soft lighting, smoke and leather straps, just a normal night in Lady Gaga land. Mother monster is out with the video to accompany her Edge Of Glory track from her recent released album Born This Way. This is SCP fav track on the album, so we were hoping for a video would be something a bit more, however, the computer says no. Anyway, check it out, its better than some video's some artists offer!

New Track Alert – Rye Rye - Never Will Be Mine ft. Robyn

This track is great! Not only does it feature the SCP fav Robyn, it features upcoming new artist Rye Rye ) which reminds us of Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopez - though would never come that close to our fav TLC girl! )

Rye Rye has released the video for Never Will Be Mine featuring Robyn. “If you have problems with the one, you love so much”

Rye Rye’s has remixed Robyn’s acoustic version of Be Mine. We like it for the reasons above!

We discovered this video whilst searching YouTube and though we don’t think it will be making a world wide hit, it made us chuckle.

New Single Alert - Florrie - Experimenting With Rugs

We love Florrie. Full stop! She isn’t afraid to take on the music industry on her own. She has turned down major labels to instead work independently, releasing music and remixes that she wants and the fans want and to build a fan base that will be with her forever.
