It has been a looooonnngg time since we have hear Paula Abdul sing something new.  She attempted to make a career comeback with moderate success to her most recent new (2008) songs, "I'm Just Here For The Music" & "Dance Like There Is No Tomorrow".  But then nothing...an absence in the pop world had occurred.

After a stint as a judge on the 1st season of the X Factor, it seemed like we would never hear from the chart-topping choreographer ever again...until now.  She guest judged on the reality dancing competition Dancing With The Stars (a show more suited for her stronger talent…dancing).  After her week stint she took a break from the show for a week to rehearse and film digital dance scenes.

Paula did great.  She showed the world just what they were missing when one of pop's original dance queens went to hiding.  She easily changed costumes and switched songs smoothly and effortlessly throughout the entire performance.  She also re-recorded all of her four hits that she performed, "Forever Your Girl" "Cold Hearted" "Opposites Attract" & "Straight Up"which she sang better than ever!

She also sat down with ABC News Radio to talk about her new single/mashup "Dream Medley."  She talked about recording new music (!) and performing a lot in the future (possible tour?):

"I'm in the process of making more music," she tells ABC News Radio.  "But...for me, I wanna do it in ways that allow me to have great creative outlet[s] and platforms.  So that's why you'll see me performing a lot."

I really do hope that she releases new music soon because the world really needs to be taught a lesson about REAL dancing!

I just want to apologize first about my lack of posts this past week(s) and not keeping you guys up to date on all the new music that has happened as of late!  From Will.I.Am's Britney assisted single 'Scream & Shout' to Cher's unexpected comeback 'Woman's World' we have seen a lot in only a short amount of time.

First is Will.I.Am's new song called 'Scream & Shout' featuring Britney Spears.  I have never been a fan of Will's solo work (it just sounds like all of the shitty Black Eyed Peas songs that they rejected.)  This although was a surprise!  It was DECENT, not great (which is a step up for Will.I.Am, but a step down for Miss Britney Spears.)  Spears sings in a British accent which gives the track some character and life, but besides that she is put on back burner to do backup vocals for Will, who drags the song on for waaaaay to long (it would be better if it were 3:30 or under.)

Next comes Paris Hilton's leaked (and scrapped) single 'Last Night'.  Right after Pitbull included the track on his current album, Global Warming, featuring Australian singer-DJ Havana Brown.  "Someone" then "ironically" leaked Paris' version of the song featuring rapper Lil Wayne.  I prefer this version better cause I don't really like Pitbull nor does Havana have enough songs for me to really get a good feel for her.

There is also the triumphant return of The Icon/Goddess of Pop Cher.  With the look of Cher's music career going nowhere as of a month ago, she comes out of NOWHERE and drops her amazing new dance song/lead single 'Woman's World'.  This is how proper dance-pop should sound in 2012 and this is exactly how Cher should sound in 2012 as well.  It is beautifully crafted by Paul Oakenfold an English producer who ironically worked with Cher's "BFF" Madonna.  Regardless, this is a song that will go #1 on the Dance/Hot Club Charts and possibly obtain mainstream success!

I will try my hardest to update my blog much more often!  I am currently debating on weather to do a review on Rihanna's album Unapologetic.  Tell Me what you guys think!

I just wanted to apologize to everyone that I haven't been able to do this review earlier in the week, it was really busy and I fella little behind in my blog.  Expect another review coming soon.

When buzz about her coming back with her new album dropped earlier this year, I was shaking and crying of joy and happiness.  So it was really hard for me to wait all this time for the record to finally come out!

On this album, Xtina explores her inner diva pop superstar status through many of the songs.  Chalk full of fun uptempo songs, catchy mid tempos, and meaningful and lyrical ballads.  Christina claims that her reality singing competition, The Voice, helped her find her voice again, and she is right.  She sounds better than ever on this record, singing great, but not overdoing it as often as we have come to know of Miss Aguilera.  And because of this I must congratulate her for keeping conscience of this.

The best thing on this record hands down are the uptempo songs.  There is never a dull moment on any of these songs.  'Red Hot Kinda Love' is so catchy, but yet so different from anything that I have ever heard before.  Most of the uptempo songs are songs that seems so new and fresh and different, but yet so radio friendly, that it reminds us that Christina is just as good of an executive producer on her albums as she is a singer.  Even on the Max Martin/Shellback produced 'Let There Be Love,' she shines through the song without making it sound generic or like another person's song.

Christina also does amazingly on the ballads.  Many of them shine through with flying colors, such as: Sing for Me, Just a Fool, and mainly Blank Page.  The Sia-penned song is absolutely amazing, proving that the Sia/Christina combo can make great songs besides the ones just on Bionic.  The midtempos, like Around The World, are quite catchy and surprised me being as catchy as they are.

Overall, this is a step in the right direction for Christina.  She has finally embraced her inner pop goddess and made her first plain pop record since her debut, and it sounds great, fresh, and new.  I foresee great chart success for the album and its singles.

SCORE: 4.5/5

My favorite Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland, has premiered the music video for her sensual song 'Ice' featuring Lil Wayne.  This was one of my favorite songs from her so far!  It took me a few listens to get into 'Motivation' (it was an impulse buy, but now it's my JAM) but 'Ice' clicked right away.  It even was anticipated enough for it to rise up to #42 on iTunes the day it came out.  But not that the music video has dropped, I foresee it having huge success!

Miss. Rowland is looking every bit of flaw-free wonderfulness in this music video!  She looked great in everything and everywhere!  The afro was HUGE, but Kelly pulled it off effortlessly as if we were still in the 80's.  Another perk, Lil Wayne was no where to be found (maybe he learned his lesson from the first time they collaborated…)!  If Kelly really really wanted the eye candy, she could go and find someone else;honestly there are so many better looking rappers around!

The music video is a pretty good one, it's still sexy, but not a lot like Motivation, making it it's own.  I think everyone should go out and buy it!  (But that's just me)

Yesterday was a special day in music, it was the release of Lotus, Christina Aguilera's comeback album (later on this week I will post a full album review).  While many were excited to see her come out with an album, some of her fans (like me) were waiting for a proper performance of 'Your Body'.  Sadly, on last night's episode of The Voice, that is not what we got.

What we did get though was an introduction into the brand new album she released earlier that day.  And what an introduction!  It was the perfect song to debut her album to!  First off it had fellow The Voice co-judge, Cee Lo Green which was a great way to start off the Lotus era! Another highlight of the night was that Miss Aguilera actually put together during this performance!  There was nothing that looked out of place, or anything that looked wrong or to tight, it all worked well together for a crazy and FIERCE start to this era!

Things are looking up for Miss Aguilera now!  There was this flaw-free performance to start off the album sales (which are currently sitting pretty at #5 on the iTunes charts)!  AND she has her upcoming AMA's performance on November 18th, which if planned correctly, (like last nights performance) could launch 'Your Body' up the charts into the top 20-10 on the Hot 100!

I was kinda sad that Miss Clarkson's last single from Stronger (Dark Side) only did mediocre, hence the fact that no further songs were released as singles.  I was happy to see though that she was planning on coming out with a greatest hits album, because everyone needs to know/remember how amazing she is.

This brings us to her current single 'Catch My Breath'.  I LOVE this song.  It is so Kelly, but not like her at all at the same time.  It is the perfect blend of pop-rock and pop, and in addition to that, it is not an uptempo song (which is typical for a greatest hits album).  I was eagerly awaiting this song's video to come because I wanted to see what she would do.

The video is quite simple which lets the song shine through it, which in my opinion is a good decision.  Kelly also looks absolutely stunning in this music video!  I actually love her blond her hair now! I initially hated it and thought it washed her out, but she proved me wrong!  I love the water in the video; I think it give it a nice touch!  Oh yeah, and THE HAIR FLIPS!  Oh my God the HAIR FLIPS! EPIC!

To be honest, I think that this music video will work well for the song.  I think it will remind people that it is a great song, and will resurge sales and hopefully pick up on radio.  Good luck Kelly!

Carly Rae Jepsen is definitely something special!  With her smash hit single 'Call Me Maybe' MEGA success many people just wrote her off as a one-hit wonder, boy were they wrong!  Even though 'Call Me Maybe' was riding high at #1 on the Hot 100, she came out with 'Good Time' with Owl City and scored another Top 10 hit.  She came out with her offical second single 'This Kiss' awhile ago and premired the music video the other week.  This music video isn't actually half bad! Check out why!

1.) It looks like so much fun! I honestly with I went to a party that extravagant!  There was everything there! Balloons, funny picture booths, and so much more!

2.) Carly looks stunning.  Period, end of discussion.  No one can say otherwise.  She was pretty much flaw free the whole time (Yes, even in the pool).  She even looked 18 despite being 

3.) Very few people can make an 80's sounding song's music video modern and fun and she seemed to do it effortlessly.

4.)This music video was even more interesting than 'Call Me Maybe' which I thought was cute for a teen (until I realized that she was like the same age as Lady GaGa)!

5.) She proves that she has more to offer than just her giant smash it!

I honestly think she has a long career ahead of her!  I hope she does well!
