Watch will.i.am and Britney’s new video

WOW! How rad is this new track from will.i.am and Britney Spears? The club banger in the making  video made its debut on The X Factor a couple of hours ago.

All the cool kids are going electro. This song should be a hit in SA this December. I like it… I want to Scream and Shout and let it all out. Nice one!

Watch P!nk’s new video for Blow Me (One Last Kiss)

P!nk‘s new song is climbing the radio charts and the video is set to do exactly the same, as it hits music channel playlists. It’s online, it’s rad and you can watch it above.

Die Antwoord parts ways with Interscope Records

Vodpod videos no longer available.

So news of Die Antwoord‘s departure from Interscope Records (home to the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga among others) is doing the rounds on the Net. The Zef rappers claim they wont be changing their music or their style for the sake of pleasing the label or appealing to a mass market. Now instead of the major label releasing their new record TEN$ION, they will do so independently. The first single off that album is called Fok Julle Naaiers was uploaded last night. If you’re a prude and you get offended easily, please don’t press play above. You will not enjoy this video.

Ice Watches launch in South Africa

One of the hottest accessories out there at the moment has to be the Ice Watches. The range, launched a few years back, originates from Belgium. You can see some of the hot little numbers in the new Black Eyed Peas track, The Time and you’ll also get to see a whole host of international celebs wearing them. Now they’re available in South Africa and I’ve already picked the one I’m saving for. Check out some of the video highlights from the launch recently!

It’s Super Bowl Sunday


It’s one of the big days in the USA. It’s Super Bowl Sunday and it’ll see the Pittsburgh Steelers taking on the Green Bay Packers later today at the Cowboys Stadium. Check out the official Super Bowl website for all the details on the game and who the odds are favoring. Now the Bridgestone Halftime show is one of the other highlights of the Super Bowl weekend festivities. If you’re not aware of who will be performing later, well it’s none other than the Black Eyed Peas. No doubt they’ll be playing their new track The Time – and speaking of the time, they’ll probably be wearing their ICE Watches too. I’ll have more on the Ice Watch launch in South Africa soon- video and all, so stay tuned. Right now though, are you excited to see the Peas performing at the halftime show? Who do you want to win the Super Bowl? Watch all the action on FOX if you’re in the US and if you’re eager to watch in from this part of the world, then check out the live broadcast on ESPN, channel 230 on DStv from 1am.
