Here is the video for "Footprints" which also the official single for Sports Relief, a charity in the UK. The video for the song is really sad but on the a better note, Leona is looking great. The "Better In Time" video is still to premiere but as soon as it does, expect to see it on crazycoolmusic first.
- In other news, Leona is to pose naked, but not revealing anything, for charity PETA in their "I'd rather be naked that wear fur" campaign. Good for Leona!

"Little Things" is the official 3rd single from Colbie Caillat's debut album "Coco". This is such a good song and much better than second single "Realize" which seems to be flopping at the moment. Hope this can do well for Colbie, it's a sweet song.

Still not hitting 40, Mary still has a lot in her and it's exciting to see what she will put out next.

Cassie - Is It You? [Video]

Here's the video for Cassie's new single "Is It You?". The track is taken from the the Step Up 2 Soundtrack, in which she also has a leading role as Sophie. The track has been floating around for a while and it's been unknown if the song would ever be a single. But with this video, we know it is. Watch out for Cassie's new album coming this year. The video is a little boring, but I suppose it portrays Cassie as a more serious artist and that she's not all sex and more sex!
