Fleur East has wowed the nation and is one the UK’s hottest rising stars. Prior to her appearance on the X Factor the 27-year-old from Walthamstow worked as a waitress, a fitness model and a featured vocalist for DJ Fresh who she subsequently toured with honing her craft. Often described as the underdog of the series, runner-up Fleur kept the audience and judges captivated and brought them to their feet with her varied performances and undeniable stage presence. Under the mentorship of Simon Cowell her show stopping performance of Uptown Funk was arguably the highlight of X Factor 2014, peaking at Number 1 on iTunes and credited for the songs continued success in the official charts. Unsurprisingly, since the final Fleur has signed a deal with Syco Music and is currently working on her eagerly anticipated debut album due for release later this year.

I always been a fan of Keyshia Cole, i believe she could be way more famous than what she already is, no doubt home girl got talent cause her vocal ability is off the chain, on this new single she’s proved me right once again.
Just after announcing that she will be supporting R&B diva Mary J Blige on a short tour this fall, Tamar Braxton drops her latest music video for “Angels & Demons”. Which serves as the opening track on her upcoming album entitled “Calling All Lovers”, scheduled to be release on Oct 2nd.
Atlanta R&B vocalist Monica debuted in 1995 with the platinum Top Ten singles “Don’t Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)” and “Before You Walk Out of My Life.” After appearing on LL Cool J’s Mr. Smith later that year, she recorded another killer duet with Brandy, “The Boy Is Mine,” which spent several weeks at the top of the singles charts during summer 1998. Her second album, also titled The Boy Is Mine, was released in July 1998. She scored a few more chart successes through the following spring, but a long period of silence marked time between albums. The much-delayed After the Storm finally hit stores in the spring of 2003 and reached the top of the Billboard 200, while the following Makings of Me took three years to materialize and hardly suffered for it, reaching the Top Ten. Still Standing, released in 2010, was preceded by a BET reality series of the same name, which debuted the previous October. It was her second consecutive number one R&B album, and her fourth consecutive Top Ten Billboard 200 release. She followed that success in 2012 with New Life which featured her re-pairing with Brandy on the single “It All Belongs to Me.”
Collie Buddz follows a string of successful one-off singles and collaborations with a new reggae soul classic “BLUE DREAMZ” and “Like Yuh Miss Me,” a sexed-up banger that’ll make you wish summer was sticking around for another few months.
His first project since 2012’s Playback, Blue Dreamz once again proves his incomparable talent for blending ol’-school riddims with modern sounds.
Buddz delivers his timeless approach to reggae and dancehall as he celebrates the finer things in life throughout the seven tracks. Women, weed, and friends, they’re all essential to the Bermuda native’s party. He drives that home on the appropriately titled “Go Hard,” no doubt a crowd pleaser during his seemingly endless tour schedule. A true road warrior, Buddz has spent the past few years supporting the likes of Cypress Hill, Rebelution, and Matisyahu.
Even when tackling more serious themes, Buddz finds a way to keep it chill. That’s apparent on “Pressure,” a vibes-filled tune highlighting the world’s addiction to texting and social media. And it sits comfortably next to a mid-afternoon joint like, “Sweet Wine” and the legalize-it anthem, “Prescription.” This is all a testament to Buddz’ artistry, something we’ve all known since the release of his acclaimed 2007 debut, Come Around, and its luminous title track.
Blue Dreamz is out now on Louder Than Life/Sony Music. And if you’re in NYC tonight, you can catch Buddz at Hot 97’s On Da Reggae & Soca Tip tonight in NYC. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for soon-coming videos for “Like Yuh Miss Me” and “Blue Dreamz.”
