She has taken ages to release the video for "Almost" but finally it has debuted on her myspace page. The video is beautiful, and the single also precedes a re-release of "Between Friends" entitled "A Gift Between Friends" which is the orginal re-packaged to a Christmas theme and with bonus track, including Christmas standards.

Cheri Dennis - Portrait Of Love [Video]

Diddy's protogée Cheri Dennis on his bad boy label is releasing her official second single "Portrait Of Love" and the video premiered today. The track, which features Yung Joc & Gorilla Zoe, is a nice cut of R&B and should do much better than "I Love U" which tanked earlier on in the year. Cheri's album "In And Out Of Love" is currentl available on iTunes but will be released domestically in February '08.

Blast From The Past: Shanice

Shanice is an R&B singer. She has released 5 albums and many singles, including her biggest hit "I Love Your Smile". Released in 1991, the track reached #1 in over 10 countries plus the #2 spot in both the UK and the USA. The "Doo Doo Dooo" part of the song is still very well-known. The video is good too, and that's why I have chosen Shanice as Crazy Cool's Blast From The Past!
Any reviews / news / feelings on Shanice?

Monrose - What You Don't Know [Video]

German Girl Group Monrose are releasing the third single from their album "Strictly Physical" next month, and the video for it just premiered on a German music channel. The video is really good, but I personally find the song a little boring. Hopefully another top 10 hit in Germany for the girls!

Natasha Bedingfield - Love Like This [Live]

UK Pop Artist Natasha Bedingfield performed new single "Love Like This" on Good Morning America today and it was a good performance. Oddly wearing a sailor's hat, the single (currently top 40 in the US) is taken from Nat's second US album "Pocket Full Of Sunshine", which is reportedly her album "N.B" with extra tracks.

English Soul Diva Joss Stone performed her wonderful cover of Nat King Cole's "L-O-V-E" at French Talent Show "Star Academy" last night. She performed it with contestant Maureen, and whilst Joss was fantastic -- Maureen didn't do the song any justice :( Joss looked great, even though her hair was a bit odd!

Jackson 5 to reunite in 2008?

Motown Legends the Jackson 5 are rumored to return in 2008, according to Yahoo The 5 piece, comprising of superstar Michael Jackson and 4 of his brothers, had a string of hits in the 60's and beyond, before Michael went on to become the best selling singer of all time. The report said the following...
Rumors of a Jackson 5 reunion show for 2008 have been sparked by a concert promoter.

Leonard Rowe promoted Michael Jackson's Off The Wall tour the late '70s/early '80s. He has now met with the Jacksons to discuss the possibility of a reunion tour in 2008.

Rowe told Access Atlanta: "His brothers are ready. Janet is ready. But the motor of that car that makes the car run, isn't just yet."

Rowe added: "In April of this year, I flew out to Las Vegas and met with them all and he told me, 'Let's look at '08.' We wanted to go this year, but [Michael] said it would take a lot of preparation. He didn't say no."

The last Jackson 5 studio album was 1989's 2300 Jackson Street.

The comeback would be great, but are they up to it? I'm sure they aren't as nimble as they used to be! Interesting to see Janet's name mentioned too!

Booty Luv - Some Kinda Rush [Video]

UK Dance Duo Booty Luv are releasing the fourth single from their album "Boogie 2Nite" in December. The Hot Club track is brilliant, and "Some Kinda Rush"'s video is awesome. Really enjoyable to watch and I hope Booty Luv can get another hit single with this!

Spice Girls - Headlines [Live @ Children In Need]

The biggest girl group of all time, the Spice Girls, gave their first performance as a five-piece in other 10 years! They performed their new single "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)" at Children In Need, a UK event which raises money for unfortunate children. They mimed, but I'm sure they won't be miming when they go on their world tour. They looked amazing though!

Spice Girls - New Promo Pic

Here's a new promotional picture for Spice Girl's reunion. The girls all look great but I just wish Geri wasn't so central and didn't draw so much attention to herself. The girls tour seems to be a great success and the demand was so high around the world, more tickets have had to be released. However, on the music front - things seem to be going not so well. "Headlines", their new single, only debuted at #20 in the UK and it's not set to do any better in the midweeks. However the album is set to debut at #2. Perhaps their peformance at Children In Need will boost sales!

Blast From The Past: Dannii Minogue

Dannii Minogue is an australian singer/songwriter/actress who is, of course, the sister of Kylie Minogue. Personally, I don't like Kylie Minogue but I've always loved Dannii, espcially her music. The above video is for "All I Wanna Do", Dannii's lead single from her third album "Girl". The song reached #4 in the UK and #1 in the Club Charts. Dannii is the most successful artist on the Club and Dance Charts in the UK, with over 16 #1 Dance Singles. "All I Wanna Do" is Dannii's first dance-inspired song so I thought I would post this one today for our Blast From The Past.
- In other Dannii news, you can see her everyweek on the X-Factor. Buy her new album "Unleashed", out this week, an album full of un-heard new songs and remixes. Also don't forgot to buy "Touch Me Like That", Dannii's new single, when it's out on December 4th.

Jordin Sparks - Tattoo [Video]

After posting her official album cover 2 days ago, I am now bringing you the video for Jordin Sparks new single "Tattoo". The video premiered on Yahoo last night and the song is pure fire, but the video is a bit of letdown. It's boring and very plain, and surely the label would have given her an amazing video after winning American Idol. Take a look...
