This is a huge mega-post about 3 new songs that leaked this past weekend from Keri Hilson, The Pussycat Dolls, and Lil' Kim. First up, Keri Hilson. Here is her official second single, "Return the Favor" produced by hit-maker Timbaland. The song is a great upbeat pop-dance track. Next are The Pussycat Dolls. This is their second single off ''Doll Domination'' called "Whatcha Think About That" featuring Missy Elliot. The song is a bit of a grower, but it will hit in no time. And last is Lil' Kim. After a bit of a break, Kim is back with a reggae song called "Caribbean Connection" with Wyclef Jean. The song is alright, and nothing really special. Enjoy these 3 songs!!

Reality TV star, fashion designer, tabloid goddess, and singer Heidi Montag has just released her tenth? single "Overdosin'". And she even decided to do a video for this single. Joy to us! The song is a mediocre pop song with no positives at all. The video, is well HORRIBLE! She tried to go for a whole 80's workout video vibe for it, and it failed tremendously. The audio even stops halfway into the supposed video directed of course by boyfriend Spencer Pratt. I really don't know when she thinks this joke won't be funny anymore. She really needs to get the hell out of Hollywood now! Enjoy this, I guess.

On September 30th, T.I. will be releasing his 5th studio album, ''The Paper Trail''. So far his first two singles have been blowing up worldwide, and he has got to be one of the hottest MC's in the game right now! Here is a brand new track for his upcoming album called "Livin' Your Life" with Rihanna. This track is just flawless, and something very new to the world. It is an uptempo hip-hop song with added pop-electro effects from RiRi. The beginning of the song samples the online sensation "Numa Numa", but the rest is normal, lol. This is gonna be easily #1 on ALL the charts. Enjoy it!

Next month newcomer rapper Kardinal Offishall and sophomore sex-kittens, The Pussycat Dolls will both be releasing their albums. Kardinal's first single "Dangerous" with Akon has been pretty successful so far, and here we have a newly leaked song and a possible next single for him called "Tide is High" with The Pussycat Dolls. The song is a good pop / rap mixture and PCD's verses are originally from Atomic Kitten's song of the same name. This great upbeat song should definitely become pretty popular in no time! Enjoy it!

Pop singer Cassie, will be releasing her 2nd studio album currently titled ''Connecticut Fever'' next year. Her first single "Official Girl" with Lil' Wayne has been getting a little bit of buzz on the charts. The song has a great beat and lyrics, with a nice r&b feel, but with very weak vocals from Cassie. I really enjoyed the video. Cassie has really grown up since "Me & U", and she has some really good dance moves. I don't know where the single can go from here, and it is all up to you! Enjoy it!!

Keri Hilson, Timbaland's female prodigy, has been hard at work in the studio recording her album ''In a Perfect World" out in October. Her first single "Energy", a great r&b song, has failed miserably. Here we have a possible second single "Mic Check" with Akon. The Timbo-produced song is AN AMAZING upbeat pop / r&b song, which will take over the world. Definitely download this now, because it will be a hit in no time! Enjoy!!

One of the most influential r&b singers of this generation, John Legend, is about to release his album ''Evolver'' later this year. His first single "Green Light" with Outkast's Andre 3000, is a great uptempo pop song, which is starting to become pretty popular. The video, is what you would expect, nothing really special, but still fun. John is really making a name for himself, and I wish this becomes the hit it deserves. Enjoy the video!!

If you read this post, you would have known that 15 of the highest-achieving female artists would be recording a song entitled "Just Stand Up" as a charity single for cancer awareness. The song features vocals from Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Ashanti, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, Mary J. Blige, Fergie, Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Natasha Bedingfield, Sheryl Crow, Carrie Underwood, LeAnn Rimes, Melissa Etheridge, and Miley Cyrus, The song is not as great as I had expected, but it is pretty decent. It just sucks because some singers (Fergie, Carrie Underwood), got plenty of verses, while some others (Ashanti, Ciara), only got 1 verse. You can purchase the song for charity starting September 2nd! Enjoy!

Pop / rock singer Pink, has been laying low this last year, and finally she makes her comeback with her newest single, "So What", off her new album set to be released in October. This song is great uptempo rockish pop track, which I have to admit, kicks ass! And the video, oh, it is something else! The video is quite hilarious, and Pink really knows how to make everything a good joke. This has got to be the funniest video of the year, IMO. Enjoy it!!

With his 3rd album ''Year of the Gentleman'' dropping next month, Ne-Yo, is releasing his second single "Miss Independent". The song is a smooth r&b / pop track, which is starting to grow onto me. The video is really interesting, and I love how it is set in an office. and all his co-workers like him. The video also features appearances from a lot of celebrities, including singer Keri Hilson. Let's see if this lives up to his first single, "Closer". Enjoy!!

With the season premiere of her show The Hills premiering tonight, pop singer / reality star Heidi Montag has released a new single called "Overdosin'". All her numerous previous singles have failed even though some have actually been pretty decent like "No More". This song is an uptempo pop / rockish song, which is just ok, and a bit boring. With no surprise, here's to another failed single, which will be making her arch nemesis Lauren Conrad really happy, lol. Enjoy!!

Recent contemporary r&b singer, Asia Cruise has been in the studio working on her debut album, ''Who Is Asia Cruise?'' out sometime this year. After a series of failed singles, she is still trying her hardest for her career. Here is a newly leaked song by her called "Rewind" with the rapper Fabolous.

Pop singer and the younger sister of Beyonce, Solange has been in the studio for a couple of years now recording her sophomore album ''Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams''. Though it has an odd title, her first single "I Decided" has been gaining quite a lot of popularity. Here is a special double post with a brand new song and video by her. The video is just like her first video, very funky and different than most other r&b artists. Her new track "Valentines Day" is a soul ballad and not that interesting. Here is the video for the track "Sandcastle Disco" which sounds like a l version of something her sister would sing. Be sure to grab her new album out in stores later this month. Enjoy these!!

NEW MUSIC: Monica featuring Ludacris ~ "Still Standing"

Yet another r&b legend is releasing a new single today! First Brandy, and now Monica. 2 summers ago Monica was on the top of the r&b charts with her single "Everytime tha Beat Drop". She has now returned with her newest single "Still Standing" featuring rapper Ludacris. The song has a bit of a slow start, but quickly becomes a great mid tempo soul / r&b track. The lyrics are pretty meaningful and she sounds a lot like contemporary Mary J. Blige. It's a bit of a slow down from "Everytime tha Beat Drop", but I'm sure it will sure become huge! Enjoy it!!

This summer many artists including Nelly and Chris Brown got together with AT&T Wireless to make an album for the Olympics taking place now in Beijing, China. All of the artists recorded new material for this compilation and here are the video premieres for two of the tracks off the album including Nelly's "Warrior" and Chris Brown's "Dreamer". Both songs are uptempo r&b / hip-hop tracks, and they aren't that special, but still listening worthy. The videos were very simple and poorly done, and Chris' just featured clips from his past videos. Let's all hope America can win even more medals this year! Enjoy these!

NEW MUSIC: Brandy ~ "Right Here (Departed)"

R&B singer Brandy and older sister of singer Ray J, has been around since the early 90's and never gotten the huge fame she deserved. After a 4 year break from the musical world, Brandy is back with a bang! Here is her first single off her upcoming album out later this year. The song is called "Right Here (Departed)". The song is an amazing uptempo pop-r&b track, and I knew it would be a hit from the first moment the song began. I hope this gets her the huge fame she deserves. Enjoy!

Britney Spears, has been literally all over the place these last 2 years, shaving her head, performing horribly at the MTV VMA's, recording her album ''Blackout'', going through legal troubles, and so much more. After finally getting her life back into the shape it was before she met ex, Kevin Federline, Britney has sat down for an exclusive interview with OK Magazine. This was her first interview in years, and she dishes us all the dirt on her life and sons. She really sounds like an amazing mom and I'm really proud of her for that. Take a peek at a snippet of the interview below...
"Do you sing to the boys?
I do. I actually wrote a song for my new album about them called "My Baby". It's a real beautiful song.

Do the boys sing?
Yes. I'll start, and they'll join in.

Have you taught them to swim?
They both jump in the water. Well, [Jayden James] almost jumps in. [Sean] Preston will jump in, and then JJ thinks he can but then he jumps to me and screams, 'mommy, mommy, mommy,' the whole time.

Do the boys share a room here?
They have separate rooms upstairs by my room.

Are the boys getting into how they look?
[Sean] Preston is. He wants his shirt and shoes. He'll tell me what he wants to wear.

What are you doing for their birthdays?
I want to have a traditional party, a joint party for both of them. I have some friends with kids who I am going to invite. There will probably be about 15 or 20 of us. There is going to be homemade ice cream. Probably my dad will make that. We'll have the jumpers and bouncers.

How do you feel about your boys getting into the entertainment business?
If they want to do it, and if they are talented enough, I would support them. But they'd have to express an interest on their own.

Would you like to see them pursue it?
I'd rather not, but I'd love them unconditionally if they wanted to. I'd just as soon they have a more normal childhood.

Do you cook a lot?
I do. Usually, the maid and I will cook together.

What's your house specialty?
I love rice and baked chicken. We'll cook that together, and the kids love my spaghetti. I think for some reason they like my spaghetti better than what they have at their dad's house.

What's special about Mom's spaghetti?
I think it's my sauce. I make it with love, and I make it from scratch."

The best girl group of all time, The Pussycat Dolls are going to release their next album, ''Doll Domination'' next month. Their first single "When I Grow Up" is quickly impacting the world, and their album is expected to just be amazing. Here is a new song from the girls called "Out of this Club" featuring R. Kelly. It is a slow pop ballad track, and a bit of a disappointment. R. Kelly really ruins an already mediocre song, and I really hope this doesn't make the album. Hopefully more songs leak from them soon. Enjoy, I guess.

Australian songstress and one of my most favorite singers recently, Kylie Minogue, has been coming back into the face of pop music this past year with her internationally popular album ''X''. After a bunch of hit singles worldwide, except America, Kylie isn't letting go so soon. Here is the video for the official remix of her song ''The One". The track is an amazing trance-pop song, and I know it will chart pretty well. The video, just like most of Kylie's videos, is pretty simple, but it has something just fun and creative about it that you love to watch. I hope this makes it big here in the US, just for her sake. Enjoy!

Tami Chynn ~ "Frozen" → 43% (92 votes)
Lady GaGa ~ "Just Dance" → 30% (64 votes)
Nelly & Ashanti ~ "Body on Me" → 13% (28 votes)
Kardinal Offishall ~ "Dangerous" → 8% (16 votes)
Colby O'Donis ~ "What You Got" → 6% (12 votes)

Wow! This was an impressive poll. With a total of 212 votes, this was not bad at all. And I'm very surprised, yet pleased with the winner Tami Chynn for her song "Frozen", one of my favorites this year. It sucks "Body on Me" wasn't that popular since it's a great song. And poor Colby, getting only 12 votes, which was quite a shock. A new poll will be up tomorrow, in the meantime, be sure to spread the word about M&M ~ Music Mania.

Internationally popular girl group, The Pussycat Dolls are set to release their sophomore album ''Doll Domination'' after a good 3 years of waiting. The head single "When I Grow Up" is already a huge hit and the album is expected to surpass the sales of their previous album ''PCD''. Here is the official cover for the album, and it is quite nice, and very creative. They all look gorgeous on those motorcycles. These girls are definitely going to go far, as if they haven't already! Enjoy the cover!!

Last summer Making the Band contestant Donnie Klang didn't make the boy band Day26, but instead got his own recording contract as a solo singer. Couple months back he debuted his first single "Take You There" with Diddy. The pop-dance track, has been considered a flop, but Donnie isn't letting go just yet by releasing a video for the track. The video, just like the song, is quite mellow and boring, and I don't really see the point of the lesbians in the video. If he thought the track would get more popular now, he was way wrong. Enjoy, I guess.

After the failed collaboration album, ''Face Off'' with Bow Wow, Omarion is returning back to making solo r&b music. No new album has been confirmed, but here we have a brand new song just leaked from Omarion called "Vroom". The song, IMO, isn't very amazing, and it is just any ordinary uptempo, r&b / soul love track. Even though, I do love some parts of the song. But who knows? This may be his next single, it may not. Enjoy it for the mean time!

T.I.'s newest album, ''The Paper Trail'' is set to be dropping next month. His first single "No Matter What" took off quite well, and here we have his second single, "Whatever You Like". No, this isn't his collaboration with Nicole Scherzinger, but his own different song. The song is upbeat, and has a great catchy, hip-hop chorus. The video is really cute, and T.I. is quite a stunna. Here's to another hit by him! Enjoy!

Newcomer Colby O'Donis has recently been rising in the music industry with his hit single "What You Got" with Akon. After his very successful first single, Colby is ready to slow down for his second single. The song is called "Don't Turn Back", a slow r&b / pop track, and it is not the best, but growing onto me. The video, is quite simple, but he does have some pretty good vocals, and better dance moves. Chris Brown better be watching out! Enjoy!

Girl group, Girlicious, who was assembled on the television series, The Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious, next month is set to release their self-titled debut album, and with all their growing popularity it should be a huge success. Here is a brand new track called "Baby Doll", set to possibly be their third single. The song is really hot, and its a great uptempo r&b track! The song sounds a bit of something sister act the Pussycat Dolls would sing, but this will still be a great banga! Enjoy!

This year rapper Ludacris is set to drop his album, ''Theater of the Mind''. After a long wait, we finally have his first single, "What Them Girls Like" featuring Chris Brown. Luda really shines in this one , and it is just blazing hot, and I really love Chris' verse. This is way better than your average rap / hip-hop music, and what more can I really say, this is just an amazing track! This will definitely be a huge hit this fall. Enjoy the song!

The diva of pop music, Mariah Carey has recently come back into the limelight with her hit album ''E=MC²'', and her singles have been doing pretty well internationally. Yesterday, Mariah along with rapper Young Jeezy performed her song "Side Effects" on Jimmy Kimmel's late-night talk show. The track is a very deep, midtempo pop song about her past. Their performance was really great, and they are both amazing live! I really love this track, and since she performed it live, I think it may be her next single! Enjoy the performance!

This year's American Idol runner-up, David Archuleta, has been in the studio recording his upcoming album, out later this year. Today his first ever single "Crush" debuted on a New York radio station. The track is a very midtempo pop / vocal track, and a bit too much like fellow Idol alumni Jordin Sparks' music. Overall, the track is just ok, but knowing his crazy fans, this will be another one of those #1's very shortly. Enjoy it!!
