Blast From The Past: Backstreet Boys

This week's Blast From The Past belongs to the Backstreet Boys. They are the biggest selling boyband of all time and have amassed many records throughout their 15 year career. They released their 5th album late last year, called "Unbreakable", and are currently touring. They come to London in May with the tour, but sadly the tickets have already sold out! Starting as a five-piece, BSB have lost a member, Kevin, since 2006. He left due to personal reasons and that he couldn't keep up with the gruelling BSB schedule. However the band are still going strong and throughout their career, they have notched up countless hits including: I Want It That Way, Larger Than Life, The Call, Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely, Quit Playing Games (With My Heart), All I Have To Give, Incomplete and mant more. Today I bring to you "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" which some argue to be their biggest hit. Everybody knows this song, it's classic - and so is the video! Take a look!

Randy Jackson & Paula Abdul Team Up For Album

Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul are perhaps best known as being judges on American Idol along with Simon Cowell. But Billboard has revealed that Randy, who is also a Grammy-winning music producer and bassist, is releasing a new album in March. He has written and produced an album which will feature the hottest singers around on the vocals. Teaming up with Randy on the first singer is Paula Abdul, who was a highly successful singer with 53 million records sold worldwide. She hasn't do any music since 1996 so this is great news for Paula fans - which includes me (I'm her biggest!)
Billboard magazine said the following...
Randy Jackson has a busy first quarter ahead of him. Not only will the musician/producer be returning to the stage this week as a judge on "American Idol," but come March 11, the musician/producer will also have a new album to support.

Mariah Carey, Paula Abdul, Joss Stone, Travis Tritt, Jason Mraz and former "Idol" finalists Elliott Yamin and Katharine McPhee are amongst the artists making appearances on "Randy Jackson's Music Club, Vol. 1," which will be released on Jackson's Concord Music Group imprint, Dream Merchant.

Jackson produced the 12-track effort, which runs the gamut from country to hip-hop. The first single, "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow," features "Idol" cohort Abdul's first new recording in more than 10 years. A number of unique collaborations are also highlighted, including "Wang Dang Doodle" featuring Sam Moore, Keb' Mo' and Angie Stone and "I Understand" with Carey, Bebe Winans, Kim Burrell, Rance Allen and Hezekiah Walker & The Love Fellowship Tabernacle Church Choir.

Blast From The Past: Vanessa Williams

Today's Blast From The Past is Vanessa Williams. The UglyBetty star had a pop/R&B career and she experience big success from the later 80's to late 90's. Since the millenium, she has concentrated on acting but has still managed to record a Christmas album and a Jazz album. She certainly has the voice, and also the looks - she won the 1981 Miss America competition! This song is "Happiness", and R&B hit from her 1997 album "Next". "Next" is my favourite Vanessa album -- pure gold, great R&B songs on there, shame it was her last studio album. Fingers crossed, Vanessa will head back into the studio for another album soon after her success on Ugly Betty.
