What a rad track to get your Monday morning’s off to a good start. It’s the new one from Sean Paul and it features Alexis Jordan. Have a listen, watch and let me know what you think.
The 18th of July is a day we celebrate in South Africa. The reason? It’s former president, Nelson Mandela’s birthday. He will be 92 years old. Now while he spent 67 years fighting for human rights, equality among everyone and making a difference in the world; Madiba and his team have called for us to spare just 67 minutes for those less fortunate than ourselves. You can read newspapers to the elderly or you can go and help nurses and social workers feed a few of our younger members of society. I haven’t decided on what I will be doing on Sunday, but I will share my experience with you when I’m done.
So that is what Sunday will hold for many, but it also sees the launch of the new Big Brother season on DStv. To help kick off the launch of the show, dancehall star, Sean Paul will perform three of his songs. I saw Sean Paul performing in 2007 at the X-Games in Aspen and he was but awesome. So Africa, you’re in for a treat. What a great way to kick off the new, All-Stars season of the hit show. I’m wondering who will be there, vying for the $200 000 prize money? Perhaps Lerato from South Africa? How about the very controversial Tatiana? Let’s see this weekend, when the show gets going. You can follow Big Brother on Twitter @BigBroAfrica and online at http://www.mnetafrica.com/bigbrother
And here’s what to expect in the next few months:
“Wait for Me” is Moby’s new album, which is going to be massive. The Album artwork is made up of drawings “animations” all done by Moby himself – it’s really cool. Now if you want to win a hamper, filled with the album, a cool bag, badges, a T-Shirt and of course the album, leave a comment below with your deets and why you want the prize. Only one up for grabs and to all my international readers, unfortunately this is only open to South African citizens. More on this album to follow in the weeks to come.
Fresh off their Teen Choice Award last weekend, Paramore return with their follow up to their sophomore album “Riot”. The first single ‘Ignorance’ is on radio .Album is due for release September 2009
MUSE! Their SA fan base exploded after the amazing 2008 Coke Fest performances. This is the first new material since that tour, so I reckon this is a big one to look out for.
Dancehall superstar, Sean Paul returns with another hit filled album, which features 20 Tracks. Loving the first single “So Fine” and here is the video:
The album drops at the end of this month
The lovely Erica Elle drops her album Studio 55 next week. The 5FM DJ and DJ in her own right is banging. This is a double album based on her radio show on 5FM, so it’s the Main Floor and the Dirty Basement discs. The
Main Floor is loosely devoted to house tunes while Dirty Basement takes its cue from more techno-orientated sounds. On the album, Erica says
“I believe that dancing is the expression of one’s soul and that music fuels it. This album is for the dance-addicted among us!”
So Spring and Summer in SA are going to be well cool, no doubt. For y’all in the Northern Hemisphere, you’ll have just as much fun… Music keeps me sane, calm, happy and centered. Let it do the same for you!
