Will.i.Am featuring Cheryl Cole ~ Heartbraker (Video Premiere)

Saturday, March 29, 2008

Will.i.Am has been out of the spotlight most recently with his failed album ''Songs About Girls'', but he's not giving up all hope. He is still releasing the song "Heartbraker" featuring Cheryl Cole (From the European group Girls Aloud) as a single with the video just premiering yesterday! The video and song are both, ok. Nothing very interesting, but do love the way it was shot. Still, I doubt it will become very chart topping. But who knows? Enjoy!!

Corinne Bailey Rae: Dealing With Her Loss

Friday, March 28, 2008

A distraught Corinne Bailey Rae ventured out of her home Thursday for the first time since her husband's death last week, to pay tribute to his memory. The Grammy-winning singer visited a towering Easter cross in the Yorkshire countryside (In England) and laid a spray of heather at its base in remembrance of Jason Rae, who was found dead last week of a suspected overdose at 31.

In a statement released on her behalf, Bailey Rae, 29, thanked her fans for their support and well wishes.
"Corinne Bailey Rae and her family have been touched by the huge amount of love and support that's flooded in from all over the world, and that is really helping all of us cope at this terrible time," the statement said. "Corinne is also very grateful for the privacy she is being given and the respect that has been paid to herself and Jason."

The Raes met in a jazz bar and wed in 2001, and have lived a happy life for 7 years together. There has been no word on when a funeral will take place. I wish her and his family all the best on what will come in the future. R.I.P.

Trina featuring Keyshia Cole ~ I've Got a Thang For You (Video Premiere)

Just yesterday was the premiere of Keyshia Cole's new video "Heaven Sent", and now she is featured in Trina's new video for her single "I've Got a Thang For You". This is the second single off her new album "Still Da Baddest" out next month. I am really loving this song, and the video has a great storyline to it. I'm also happy Trina changed up her appearance since she looked like a total train wreck in the video "Single Again", which I also liked a lot. I hope her new album goes far from all these great singles. Enjoy!

Keyshia Cole ~ Heaven Sent (Video Premiere)

Thursday, March 27, 2008

Keyshia Cole has made a stunning comeback these last 2 years and it just keeps on coming. Here is Keyshia's new video premiere for her song "Heaven Sent". I almost cryed at how sad this video was. It is very beautifully directed, and one of her best videos to date. I haven't really liked her ballads from ''Just Like You'', but this is defiantly one of her best ones. This is currently one of my favorite videos out this year! Enjoy the video!!

Mariah Carey ~ That Chick (Live @ MTV.com)

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

Mariah Carey has been around since the begining of the 90's, and 15 years later she is still going strong with her new album, ''E=MC²'' out next month. On Monday, Mariah performed 2 songs at the premiere party for the MTV show, The Hills, which stars Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag. It also seems she performed her new song "That Chick" exclusivley to be shown on MTV.com. The song is just ok to me, and I prefer her newest hits "Touch My Body" and "Migrate" more. But, I guess, enjoy!!

Beyonce ~ Beautiful Nitemare (New Song)

These last months legendary performer, Beyonce, has been recording her third solo record, and on Saturday, the first song "What's Good With You" leaked, and today, the second has come also. This song is called "Beautiful Nitemare" (No, not "Beautiful Liar") and it is just great! She is going for more of a dance record this time around and this demo might just be it! I doubt this will be the first single, but whatever happens, happens. Enjoy!

Donnie J featuring Diddy ~ Take You There (New Song)

Sunday, March 23, 2008

I am very dissapointed by this. For a first single Donnie could have done so much better! This song is called "Take You There" which features a verse from Diddy. This doesn't compare to the "Take You There" by Sean Kingston, which is HOT! I love this guy (as a singer), and he has much better songs out there than this. But, just like all of these other Making the Band singers, maybe it can eventually grown onto me. It just came onto iTUNES today, which is very odd since its a Sunday. But, this song could be hot in clubs and stuff, since many of his fans are liking it. Enjoy, I guess.

Beyonce ~ What's Good With You (New Song)

Saturday, March 22, 2008

Whoow! This song is HOT!!!! This is a newly leaked track from the one and only, Beyonce! This song is called "What's Good With You", and I just love it! After one listen I just fell in love with it. This is the old Beyonce, but with a brand new style! I could tell the former Destiny's Child singer has been working hard on this since her huge succes with ''B'Day'' back in 2006. I guess we will be hearing new material from B in the coming months, since this was very unexpected. Enjoy!!!

Poll Results (February 29 - March 22)

Here are the results for the poll running from February 29th to March 22th.


Danity Kane → 37% (40 votes)
The Pussycat Dolls → 30% (32 votes)
Destiny's Child → 21% (23 votes)
The Spice Girls → 10% (11 votes)
Atomic Kitten → 1% (1 votes)

This poll pissed me off so much! Many people were coming to the site and repeatedly voting for the same group. The first day the poll was up Danity Kane had 57 votes, when the other choices had like 1, or even none! So I had to reset the poll many times until they stopped with the voting. Ok, so back to the results. I personally tink PCD is the true winner, but DK is really good too! It's so sad Atomic Kitten only got 1 vote, lol. Be sure to vote in the next poll up very soon!

Danity Kane ~ Make Me Sick (New Song)

Friday, March 21, 2008

I know, I'm a little late at posting this, but here it is anyway. This is a bonus track from Danity Kane's sophomore album ''Welcome to the Dollhouse'' entitled "Make Me Sick". This song is definitely hot, and I think should have been on the album. It appears as a bonus track on the album at Target stores instead of the hot "Ain't Going" with Day26 & Donnie J. This song is much better than all the other boring ballads on the album. Enjoy it!

Nelly featuring Fergie ~ Party People (New Song)

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

This collaboration is just great! I'm talking about Nelly and Fergie's newest track, "Party People", off of his new album ''Brass Knuckles''. No, this song is not by arch rivals Fergie and Nelly Furtado, I'm talking the male rapper Nelly. My first time hearing, I didn't really care for it, but the chours just got me hooked! New material from both Fergie and Nelly has been a while, so this is just great news! This song will be a huge banger this year, and it will be huge on radio too! Enjoy!!

Day26 ~ Got Me Going (Video Premiere)

This is such a great video for such a great first single! This is the video premiere for Diddy's latest group Day26's first ever single "Got Me Going". I am really loving this track and the video just made me like this a hella lot more! At first I didn't think this group would last, but they proved me wrong! They are fire, and really becoming popular now with the launch of Making the Band 4 along with Danity Kane and Donnie J. The group's self-titled album will be out next week, and I am pretty sure it will be hot! Enjoy this amazing video!

Madonna featuring Timbaland & Justin Timberlake ~ 4 Minutes (To Save the World) [New Song]

Monday, March 17, 2008

After waiting and waiting, the full HQ album version has leaked! I'm talking about Madonna's latest single "4 Minutes (To Save the World)"! It leaked weeks ago as a LQ mix, that being the reason I held off on posting here on the blog. I must say, the HQ version is just awesome! This song is just fire, and one of M's greatest ones yet! Madonna's album ''Hard Candy'' will be released later next month, and this is the first single, set to be released on radio tomorrow. Enjoy this hot, amazing track!!

Mariah Carey featuring T-Pain ~ Migrate (Live @ SNL)

Sunday, March 16, 2008

This song is fire!!!! Yesterday, Mariah came onto Saturday Night Live as the special music star and sang to of her new songs off of E=MC², "Touch My Body" and the new "Migrate". She was the replacement for Janet Jackson, but I think it was all for the better! I am loving this more than "Touch My Body" and I'm really digging T-Pain's rap verse. I am just so ready for the HQ version to leak, and you know we will have it for you first here! Enjoy!

Madonna ~ Candy Store (New Song)

Friday, March 14, 2008

This is Madonna's newest track off of ''Hard Candy'', "Candy Store". She is really going with a candy theme for this album, lol! I am really loving this song, and it is pure gold. It has that pop-dance feel with hip-hop thrown in near the end. Of what I understand, this actually leaked as a demo back in the summer of last year! Overall, I am liking this song more than "4 Minutes (To Save the World)" (which I just absolutely adore), so you could tell I really like this! Enjoy this awesome song!!

Rihanna ~ Take a Bow (New Song)

Here is Rihanna's new track from the re-release of ''Good Girl Gone Bad'' called "Take a Bow". And actually, it's her new single! Ya, it pretty much sucks, but a lot of people like it. It is a bit to ballad for me, and not single material like her current hit "Don't Stop the Music". It also kinda reminds me of her duet with Ne-Yo, "Hate That I Love You". Ryan Seacrest premiered the song today on one of my favorite, local radio stations, 102.7 KIIS FM (Yes, I'm from Los Angeles)! Enjoy the song, though I doubt it can go far.

*Note: From now on files will be uploaded onto MediaFire. Zshare has been giving my computer (along with many other people's) a virus and and a lot of spam. I hope everyone can adjust to this change.

Lil' Wayne featuring Static Major ~ Lollipop (Video Premiere)

Thursday, March 13, 2008

I have to admit it! I hate Lil' Wayne, but this song is just taking over me! This track rocks! I dunno why, it's just real good! This is Lil' Wayne's newest single "Lollipop" featuring Static Major, who passed away late last month at the age of 33. He died after this video was shot. On a brighter hand, the video is real nice. I love the whole idea of the Las Vegas club scene. The beat is real nice too, and I'm glad it's not hardcore hip hop, but dance able. This will be on the album ''Tha Carter III'' out in May! Enjoy!!

Kat DeLuna featuring Busta Rhymes ~ Run the Show (Video Premiere)

What a great video!! This is Kat DeLuna's latest video for her 2nd single "Run the Show" featuring rapper Busta Rhymes. I really am loving this track and the colors that are featured in this video. This video is definitely 100 times better than "Whine Up"'s video. I'm just concerned she is going to tr to be like Rihanna. But, I could tell Kat is gonna have a huge career ahead of her! Enjoy this great video!

Danity Kane, Day26 & Donnie J ~ Ain't Going (New Song)

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

I've been waiting for this to leak for such a long time!! I f you don't already know this is the current theme song for Making the Band, which features all 3 artists; Danity Kane, Donnie Klang, and Day26. I just love this song, and it flows really well. But, I noticed the full version sounds a bit different then that from on the TV. I know it is a hidden track on DK's album ''Welcome to the Dollhouse'', out next week, but I'm not sure if it will be on Day26's album out later this month. Overall, I really like this track and it will be a huge it. Enjoy it!!

Britney Spears ~ Break the Ice (Video Premiere)

Like WTF? What kind of fricken video is this? I am very disappointed! I absolutestly love this song! It is one of my favorites off ''Blackout'', and trust me I have a lot of 'em. It looks like someone made this video in 1 hour or something. I expected a huge, amazing video for "Break the Ice", not this anime crap. Hopefully, her label will make another video for this song, that is actually real. A great song needs a great video. Also, at the end it said To Be Continued... so I am guessing that another one of her future singles will get this type of video also. So, Enjoy!

SNL: Janet Ditches, Mariah Replaces

Can '08 get any better for Mariah? A new album coming out, her musical career going sky high, and now this! The diva will be appearing on this weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live after Janet Jackson was forced to cancel her appearance due to the flu. Carey will serve as musical guest, while ''Superbad'' star Jonah Hill will host. This is Mimi's first appearance on the sketch comedy series in over 10 years.

Jackson had been scheduled to perform in support of her most recent album, ''Discipline'', which debuted atop the charts last week. However, after her ailment worsened enough for her to visit Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Monday, she elected to cancel her SNL appearance and focus on getting well, her rep said. "She's been battling the flu like everyone else," Jackson's rep Patti Webster told E! News on Tuesday.

Hopefully Mariah sings some new material from her forthcoming album ''E=MC²''. She most probably will perform "Touch My Body", her newest hit and an old favorite. And, I hope JJ gets well soon!

Cassie ~ I Don't Love U (New Song)

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

Here is a brand new joint from Cassie, entitled "I Don't Love U". I am actually really liking this song, and it suits Cassie very well! I also really love the beat, as it has some Arabian and old school beats, though the rest is a very nice pop song. I hope this makes the cut for her sophomore album, ''Connecticut Fever''. But, this does sound like something Danity Kane would sing. It would be more appealing to me if they sang this. I mean they are both signed to Bad Boy Records, so who knows, it could of been originally wrote for DK. But this is still very hot, enjoy!

Danity Kane ~ Damaged (Video Premiere)

Haha, I'm just loving these girls! I used to hate them, but they are really growing onto me! Their first single "Show Stopper", I used to hate them when their first single "Show Stopper" came out I hated them, but that kinda grew onto me! But now this too, lol! This new single of theirs is called "Damaged" form their new album ''Welcome to the Dollhouse''. I used to be like whatever to this song but now I love it. Everything takes time I guess. This video is very interesting, but a good one at that. Enjoy!!

Ne-Yo ~ Closer (New Song)

Monday, March 10, 2008

This song just rocks! I have never really cared for Ne-Yo's music but this track has changed my mind! This new track is called "Closer" and it is a very good dance pop / r&b song. His songs he produces are very good, and really nice, but to me it always seemed like his good material away. But, now he saved the best for last. This song is just absolutely hot and I loooove it! He is currently working on his 3rd album, which it looks like will be very sooner than we all expected. Enjoy!

Jesse McCartney ~ Leavin' (Video Premiere)

Friday, March 7, 2008

Wow!!! I cannot believe how much this kid is changed! Jesse McCartney is back from his Disney days with his new single, "Leavin'". I used to hate him, and his music, but now I may have some second thoughts, lol. This song is surprisingly very good, and is very hip-hop, not childish. He has grown out of Disney, and they will most probably not promoting his new material, like this. I mean he is shirtless, having sex with a girl, and grabbing his crotch in this video, lol. Enjoy and maybe you will have second thoughts bout him too!

The New (Big-Breasted) Kelly Rowland!

Kelly Rowland tells People magazine in its March 17 issue that she had plastic surgery last October to bring her "from an A-cup to a B-cup." As for the one-cup upgrade, Rowland says: "I didn't want to have double Ds and be a little bitty size 2 — that would look nuts!". The 27-year-old singer went under the knife after a long decision-making process. "I was sick of not fitting into my tops," she says. "There was this one really hot House of Dereon (Best friend Beyonce's clothing line) top — I just wanted to fill that out!"

Rowland says that top — designed by Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles — complements her new curves: "I put it on and I looked so good! I'm so happy. I feel complete." Rowland, who has released two solo albums, says she hesitated to discuss the surgery. "It is a decision I made for myself. I like it, and that's all that counts. For young people: Think about it before you just jump off and do something (you may regret later)," she says.

I am a huge fan of Kelly and I am so proud of her that she didn't go all out with her breasts. I did notice a little change in her music video for the track "Work", now that I watch it back knowing she had this surgery. I just want to say I love Kelly and I wish her all the best!

Janet Jackson ~ Rock With U (Video Premiere)

Thursday, March 6, 2008

Now this video is Janet!! "Feedback" was very good, but this video for "Rock With U" is our Janet!!!! At first I hated this track, and these last couple of days I've been in love with it! I love how it has a techno-house feel to it. Sure enough, the video premiered around the same time. I love this video so much, and it really works good with this song! This is going to be her next single off ''Discipline'', which has already reached #1. Congrats Janet, and enjoy the video!!

Day26 ~ Since You've Been Gone (New Song)

Tuesday, March 4, 2008

Here is a brand new track from Diddy's latest prodigies, Day26. They were the new group that was created on Making the Band 4 last year. The song is just ok, and not that exhilaritning to me. It definitely doesn't compare to Kelly Clarkson's smash hit of the same name. It has not been confirmed if the track will make it onto the all album, so we will just have to wait a little longer till its release later this month. Enjoy!

Heidi Montag featuring Britney Spears ~ Dramatic (New Song)

Monday, March 3, 2008

Excuse me while I laugh. HAHAHA! This song is so fricken hilarious! Heidi 'Doushebag' Montag thinks she can actually sing!! This song is better be a joke, or else her and Spencer Pratt are tone-deaf. This is the last duet I would ever imagine, Heidi, a reality TV star, and Britney, a multi-million dollar singer, collaborating. So this is how this came together. Heidi got her scrawny little hands on one of Brit's old demos. She i guess wanted to cover it, but was to lazy to re-record her own vocals. So Spencer played around with it, and after a lot of tweaking he supposedly made a duet. But the funny thing is, Britney didn't even know about them stealing the track (Even though she probably learned about it a couple of hours ago through blogs like this). In the end, this track sucks ass, sounds like like crap. I'm not even gonna say enjoy, because no one will. Courtesy of Crazy World of Music.

Akon featuring T-Pain ~ I Can't Wait (Video Premiere)

Yes, Akon is still releasing singles and videos. He hasn't been around in a while, but he is back with a video for his new single "I Can't Wait" featuring T-Pain. And yes, this is off the ''Konvicted'' album. I really actually like the song, and the video is by far my most favorite from Akon. Enjoooooy!

Tiffany Evans featuring Bow Wow ~ I'm Grown (Video Premiere)

Saturday, March 1, 2008

Amazing! That is the one word I am using to describe Tiffany Evans. She has a beautiful voice and a great perspective of life. Her new single "I'm Grown" featuring Bow Wow is just excellent. She sounds really good, and from her voice I would think she is in her late 20's but shes only a teen. Her first single, "Promise Ring" with Ciara, was a hit, and this is surely gonna surpass it! This is definitely going to my YouTube favorites, lol! I'm looking forward to hear more from her in the future. Enjoy the video!

New Banner!!

Yes, only afters posting a new layout, M&M ~ Music Mania has a brand new banner! This new amazing banner features Janet Jackson, and was actually very easy to make. I was Googling Janet Jackson and after going into like the 70th page or so, I found these to images separately. Then I went into paint, added our site name and made this beautiful banner! Don't get me wrong, but I loved our previous Beyonce one, but it got all messed up with this new layout, so I made a new one. Comments are always appreciated! Thanks! :)

J.Lo's Baby Names Announced

Jennifer Lopez has finally clued the public into what's written on her babies' birth certificates. J.Lo and Marc Anthony's newborn twins are—sweetly, simply—named Max and Emme, Lopez's manager, Simon Fields, confirmed to People Magazine Friday. The children were born February 22 at a Long Island hospital, in New York, with Emme arriving at 12:12 a.m., weighing 5 pounds, 7 ounces, and her 6-pound little brother showing up at 12:23 a.m.

These are the first offspring for Lopez, while Anthony has three other children from two previous relationships. Lopez and Anthony toted the tots home to their Long Island manse—where, per E! News, they have constructed a swank new nursery for their brood. Good luck to the new family!

Katherine McPhee featuring Elliot Yamin ~ Real Love (New Song)

Here is the brand new track from Kat McPhee and Elliot Yamin, two Idol contestants who made it real close to winning, but lost to Taylor Hicks. This is a real nice, soul-pop track for Randy Jackson's new album, ''Randy Jackson's Music Club Volume 1", which will also feature Paula Abdul's new comeback song! Hopefully, this will be on her new album, which is supposed to be out by early 2009. This can be the perfect first single! Enjoy!

New Layout!

What a way to start March! I really love this layout!! It is making the site look more professional. But, I am having to convert a lot of stuff, so if the site has some issues these couple of days, it is because of the layout. Comments are always appreciated!

And, I would also like to say I am getting very mad with some voting issues on our poll. Some asshole is keep on voting for Danity Kane on all of these different computers. I have had to restart the poll 3 times these last to days because of this moron. Please stop! Everyone else, vote for whoever you want, just don't start voting constantly. Thanks and be sure to spread the word about this blog!!
