Will.i.am follows up his smash hit, Scream and Shout with this one. It’s called That Power. Clever move by Will.i.am to include Justin Bieber on the track. That’s power right there. I’m not in love with the track just yet, but I’m sure it’ll grow on me. Your thoughts?
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 Britney performing Till The World Ends in Vegas at the weekend. Looking good, performing well. All round, Brit’s back on track!
So yesterday I brought you the first single from South African musical outfit Locnville and it just so happens that their new single music video was (at the same time) being uploaded to Youtube. Check it out above. These boys are gonna blow up this year and I reckon they have international appeal too so stay tuned.
Then check out Brit singer Cheryl Cole’s new video below. It’s the follow up to “Fight For This Love” off her number one album “3 Words”. The song sees her teaming up with BEP star Will.i.am (again- first time for his song Heartbreaker) on this track.
On a side note, did anyone in Cape Town spot Ms Cole partying it up this December? The singer, who is married to soccer star Ashley Cole will be back in the country come the World Cup, but she was jamming it up and apparently looking for the hot spots for her and the other WAGS come June!
Former Girls Aloud star, Cheryl Cole has enjoyed the view from the top of the UK charts with both her single “Fight For This Love” and her debut solo album, “3 Words”. The album was produced by BEP star, Will.i.am and now she’s caught the eye of yet another star producer. That in Jay-Z. The mogul wants to help her crack the US market and with his track record, that is most certainly possible.
According to the Daily Mirror, a source tells them, “Cheryl is the biggest fan of Jay-Z and Beyoncé. To hear the feeling is mutual has totally made her year. She never imagined her album would have taken off like this. To get Jay-Z’s support is beyond her wildest dreams.”
Will.i.am sings a song called “Heartbreaker“… it goes “I’m sa sa sorry, sa sa sorry, I didn’t mean to break your heart” and the rest you can google. Now it seems as though his rival and the man who fell ‘victim’ to him, celeb blogger Perez Hilton (Boom Boom Pow’d) is heating humble pie and apologizing for anyone who was hurt, offended. Here’s just a snippet off his site:
“People make mistakes. I have made many in my life, but this past week I have made more than I can count on one hand.
I am sorry. And I mean it. No one is forcing me to write this. I am not feeling pressured to say this. I am speaking out because I realize that the last few days have been more hurtful to me – and many others – than the repeated blows I suffered to my head in Toronto this past weekend.
I have been filled with incredible sadness and regret.
I am sorry that any good work I have done for promoting equality may be tainted by me reclaiming a hurtful word – that’s been personally used against me and the gay community – to hurt someone that was verbally attacking me. It was stupid.
Should you wish to read the rest, click here. Now you’ll recall that on Monday the blogger tweeted from his Twitter account, claiming that he was beaten up by Will.i.am. After much bitching to and fro from both camps and their allies, it came out that it was Will’s manager, Polo Molina who had been accused of throwning a punch or three. Why? Well again it’s alleged that Hilton called Hilton a “F-word”. Eish. So Twitter has been interesting, with petitions to stop Hilton in his tracks and reassess everything he stands for. I even had my say, to which he responded. In context, Perez was having a go at Travis McCoy, Katy Perry‘s ex. He basically called McCoy an idiot and said that he warned Perry about him- and this was after the Will.i.am incident. Here’s what went down:
@PerezHilton Do u enjoy provoking celebs? It’s not cool getting hit in the face, but look @ur msgs to @Travismtv and then u have to wonder!
PerezHilton@JasonVonBerg I could tell @TravisMTV to go sit on a stick that would still not excuse or allow him or anyone to physically harm me.
@PerezHilton agreed, but by calling people defamatory names is also a form of abuse…. verbal! I don’t condone violence, in any form!Peace!
So is this the beginning of a new era in the Perez Hilton blogging phenomenon? Or is this the beginning of the end? Your thoughts peops…
Estelle is hard at work on her new album; her follow-up to “Shine”. Her 2008 album scored her a world-wide hit with the song “American Boy,” which also won her a Grammy award earlier this year in the Best Rap/Sung Category. So more on the yet to be named album now. She’s enlisted the help of several heavyweight producers including Wyclef Jean, Black Eyed Peas‘ will.i.am and John Legend, as well as some newbies like TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek. On the upcoming star she said, ”
“A new guy called Dave Sitek from TV On The Radio – an amazing producer and brand new guy called Alex The Kid, he’s from London as well. I’m putting the features together now so it’s coming together.
Looking forward to hearing new material… with names such as the ones mentioned above and more, you know it’s going to be incredible. Here’s a track I still love, but that didn’t get as much exposure as I think it deserved. It’s Estelle ft Sean Paul called Come Over:
Boom Boom Pow is the name of the first single from the group’s new and perhaps their last album called The E.N.D? (The Energy Never Dies) Listen to the song here
Cool track, I think it might take another listen to really start digging it but I look forward to the music video. I can see some awesome choreography, special effects going down. The album will be released on the 9th of June and I’m sure there will be a world tour to promote the album (see their tour video to South Africa below). Stay tuned for more up dates on everything BEP-related.
