Devlin - Rewind Feat. Diane Birch
Back in 2009 I took in the amazing sights and sounds of the captivating Japan. Tokyo was a mind blower and a trip to the massive Virgin Megastore was a must. I killed several hours looking around finding some music i'd never heard of before. One of those albums I found was the brilliant Bible Belt from Michigan native Diane Birch. This album captivated me from the first listen and still does to this day. Seems 23 year old UK rapper Devlin has thought the same, using her gorgeous track Rewind as the basis for his new single, appropriately also called Rewind.

Well we kind of knew it would be amazing at this years Super Bowl half time show, however Beyonce really pulled out all the stops to put on one hell of a crowd pleasing show that didn't disappoint. The pre-show buzz alone was gaining more popularity on internet sites and social media than the actual game itself.
Sometimes a voice comes along that gives you goose bumps and that is exactly what we got when we heard the debut single from Sam Smith.

After Beyonce admitted this week that she lip-sync at President Barack Obama's inauguration, she can come fighting back by singing the United States National anthem at Super Bowl press conference. Beyonce is performing at the Super Bowl's half time show, which Madonna did last year and pulled a whopping 111million viewers, the biggest in TV history. Rumoured to feature a Destiny's Child reunion, we reckon its going to be a touch down for Queen B. Check it out below..!

News hit SCP HQ that Rihanna has confirmed that she is back with ex Chris Brown. Chris is still on probation for assaulting the singer back in 2009, however they have both said “It’s different now”
In her Rolling Stone magazine interview published on Wednesday, the singer says about her about U-turn “I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” continuing saying “I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake,”
This news is not going to go down well with her army of fans, however the Diamonds singer, who has recorded Nobody’s Business with the R&B singer on her latest album Unapologetic, doesn't seem to care saying "I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash,” At least the singer is being slightly cautious by saying Brown is on probation with her as well, saying, “He doesn’t have the luxury of (messing) up again.” continuing saying “That’s just not an option … And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
What do you think of this news pop fans? Do you think Rihanna should of given Chris Brown a second chance? Check out lyrics to Nobody's Business below and let us know if you think they have been together for a while..!

As runners-up in our Awesome Album award, you all know we're fans of Graffiti6 and their amazing debut album Colours. Front man Jamie Scott is a man of many talents though and has now lent his voice to DJ Wally Lopez's new dance track You Can't Stop The Beat. No it's not a version of the Hairspray classic but a great dance single in it's own right. Jamie's smooth vocals suit perfectly (though we can't think of anything he couldn't sing) and we're lucky to see plenty of the handsome British singer/songwriter in the video - we want to come to your party Wally - anytime you want to invite us - we're up for it OK?! In the meantime you'll love You Can't Stop The Beat as much as we do..!
