Erykah Badu - Window Seat (Behind The Scenes)

Erykah is so back with this one, just the kind of music I've been hoping to hear from her! Fingers crossed the new album has more of the same. Look out for 'New Amerykah Part Two' (Return of the Ankh) which is due out on March 30th (US Date)

Teairra Mari - Sponsor (Video Behind The Scenes)

Sex appeal on a 1000! Teairra's looking real good! As for the tune, its growing on me now, wasn't to keen before, might be watching this behind the scenes footage thats changed my mind ;-)

I still think Teairra is very underrated, but I feel she needs to do something different musically to separate her from the rest of the RnB that is out at the moment.

Nivea - Love Hurts (Video)

She's back and lets be honest its been ages since her last big tune, which I recall being 'Don't Mess With Man'. Anyway check Nivea's new video which also features Lil Wayne and more than likely this track was written about him.

LeaLea Jones Maida Vale Session

A few years ago I discovered an artist I thought was super talented and of course I wasn't wrong. Fresh out of East London, LeaLea Jones is set to make major moves this year so be on the look out for her!

This week she recorded her first session at the world famous Maida Vale studios in West London for Ras Kwame's BBC Radio 1Xtra 100% Homegrown show and she sounded amazing.

Find out loads more about LeaLea via her MySpace & her official site.

New Artist Alert! Brandon Hines

Im dedicated to bringing new artists to your attention so here's one I think is worth you being aware of.

I Want Your Music!

Right now I'm calling out to all up and coming singers who would like promotion and exposure on BBC national radio!

If this applies to you then, it's real simple to get your music to me, just attach it to an email or via a file sharing website and send it to

If I feel your music is good enough, i'll be playing your material on the RnB M1X Show on BBC Radio 1Xtra.

No poor quality MP3's, Nothing that is signed to a major label, this is only for the unsigned/independent artist. If I like your music I will contact you back, so no haggling!

Rox - My Baby Left Me

Soultress Rox has been tipped by almost every influential figure in the UK as one to watch in 2010. Personally, this track has grown on me a lot in a short space of time and I'm hoping it gets a nice high chart position when its released on the 15th March.

Im loving the organic vintage style video, really suits her character. I can see the potential within Rox's career, you go girl!

Estelle Ft Kardinal Offishall - Freak (Behind The Scenes)

Have a look at Estelle making her new video for 'Freak' which features Kardinal Offishall. The full video drops online this Friday 26th March also look out for Estelle's brand new album which is due to drop sometime this year and if the rumors are anything to go by, it looks like she is working with some massive people!

Monica - Everything To Me (Video)

Finally the new video from Monica is here! I adore this track and it has a regular fixture in my super sexy slow session during the final hour of my BBC Radio 1Xtra RnB M1X show, listen to the show online now by clicking HERE Monica is set to release her new album 'Still Standing' on 23rd March 2010. Lets hope its a good one! Back to the video, Monica really provides something which to me is a cut above the rest as its not the typical glossy pretentious vid like we're used to seeing from RnB artists nowadays. Watch for yourself below...

FREE MUSIC: Corey Latif Williams 'Breath Of Fresh Air' Mixtape

Corey is someone you need to keep an eye out for, he came to my attention a few years back with a track called 'Fix That' which I had to search long and hard for which is a rarity nowadays. Latif was formally signed to Motown records where they released his debut album "Love In The First' in 2003 since then he's gone on to write tracks for Chris Brown, Cherri Dennis, JoJo, Musiq Soulchild plus others. This year sees Latif release his new album 'Love Is Love' and to get you geared up for that you can download Latif's brand new Mixtape by clicking HERE

Craig David Speaks About His New Album

Get yourself ready for Craig's brand new album 'Singed Sealed Delivered' due out 22nd March 2010. Craig always gets my full support so I hope this album does well. Watch the video below and hear Craig breakdown the concept behind the album.

Vintage Sundays: History Ft Q Tee - Afrika

OK, it's Sunday, a day of rest (hopefully for you) and here's something to chill you out. This track has an intense amount of depth and feeling to it. Which is really to be expected when Kenny Dope has produced it. I need to find out what happened to Q Tee after this track from 1990 as this is what I know her best for.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Timbaland Ft Justin Timberlake - Carry Out

I know a lot people call this their fave track on Timbo's 'Shock Value 2' album. Personally his current single 'If We Meet Again' featuring Katy Perry has grown on me enormously, as for this one I think it's pretty average considering what these pair are both capable of.

Justin Bieber Ft Ludacris - Baby (Video)

Usher's lil protege is back with a new single witch features the rapping talent of the one and only Ludacris! Sounds like a hit record to me! Are you feeling it?

Saturday, February 20

Mariah Carey - 100% (Video)

Nice inspirational song for 2010 Winter Olympics and for Oscar nominated film Precious.

I've seen Precious now so I understand this song better. Wow what a film - so gripping and emotional at the same time.

If you haven't seen Precious yet, seriously go see it and take some tissues with you as well, it really goes deep, that's all I'm saying.

Rihanna - Rude Boy (Behind The Scenes Video)

Clearly the biggest RnB club track of the year so far, I get asked for this everywhere I play.

**Full Video**

Jill Scott Speaks To Mo'Nique

Jills breaks down motherhood, acting and her new album plus a nice little performance of 'Golden' - this is a must watch interview...

Tyra Banks Chats With Robin Thicke

Tyra is just crazy! (In a good way) Robin comes across like the perfect gentleman, he's also a cool level headed dude in person. His new album 'Sex Therapy' is so much better than his last album, so go get it if you haven't already!

Erykah Badu Ft Lil Wayne & Bilal - Jump In The Air (Video)

Few words to describe this one, weird but good! I'm sure this video was made for the weed smokers around the world! Look out Eyrkah's new album 'New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)' due out next month.

The Dream - Love King

Not a terrible track, but sounds very similar to a lot of stuff I've heard from The Dream recently. I had high hopes for The Dream after being blown away by his debut album 'Love Hate' back in 2007, but since then I'm finding a lot of his stuff is very hit or miss.
