Every Sunday I like to take a step back in time and bring you a classic video from yesteryear. Today its all about the year 1992 and an RnB trio called The Good Girls. This is such a tune! I wonder what they are doing now?

Whoa! Kels is finally back with something worth talking about. Although 'Joyful People' sounds very similar to 'Happy People', I really don't mind that, Im just glad he's actually singing properly and not making noises like a gorilla or a dog like he has recently. Listen to the track below.
R Kelly - Joyful People

Young Nate is most definitely a name you should keep on your radar, 2009 is looking to be a big year for him. Recently he re-released the remix of the big underground smash 'Mix Messages' which is taken from a new E.P called 'A Piece Of Me' due out soon. The second single 'I Wonder' has just been added to the BBC Radio 1Xtra B List and I've been hooked up with another hot track for you to listen to below called 'Like That'.
Young Nate - Like That

What a great day it has been! I'm so happy to say I was alive to experience this historic day. For the first time in my life I am now interested in American Politics. Why? Because now I finally believe it...
Take in this unique moment in time below.
By the way did anybody hear a speech from our wonderful Prime Minster today? Or was he caught up in other engagements??!!

A part of my week is dedicated to producing hot Refixes for my radio show and club sets. On this Refix I've used the vocals from Estelle's smash single 'American Boy' with a whole load of Funky House tunes. The beauty of this is that I change the beats every 4 bars so you never know what beat is going to come in next... Last night, my boy DJ Zay dropped it in London's Aura nightspot and I stood there and watched people proper skanking out to it!
Now seen as though Im a generous guy I've decided to let you have a copy of this for free, and if your a DJ this is perfect for that situation where you need to rush to the toilet in the middle of your set but you wanna make sure keep the crowd bubbling, trust me this will do the trick ;-)

On a Sunday when your doing the house work and cooking that heavy Sunday dinner, its also all about digging out them old school classics from yesteryear... Right now I'm gonna go in deep with this banger from back in 1990, yep almost 20 years ago - my gosh! This is easily one of my all time faves. Please excuse the bad timing on this video, I'm sure you'll enjoy the track all the same!

Make no mistake Akon is one of the biggest hit makers in the game and has been very consistent over the years since the success of his debut single 'Locked Up'. His latest track 'Beautiful' will no doubt add another string to his bow! Check the making of the video below.
Last year I discovered a very talented unsigned singer from Hackney, London called LeaLea Jones. It was a track called 'Oh My' which caught my attention at first because of its smoothed out, Neo Soul with a twist of independent Hip Hop that got me open. Since then I've been chatting with Lea to find out her future plans and she's hoping to drop her debut album sometime this year. Of course I'll be supporting her all the way as I believe in her talent! Below is the latest track she's sent me called 'Cake'. This track has a whole lot of potential.
One the things I respect about Ryan is you never can predict what he's gonna do next, check his new video below. Its like a mini film and his acting game is actually pretty good. I'll be catching up wit Ryan in the near future to see how the new album is coming along so look out for that one!

Im gonna keep this short and sweet. First of all Coolio was seriously in danger of disgracing the Hip Hop community, but has now slightly calmed down. (You see what happens when you lock away a weed smoker with no bud to smoke haha) Im happy Tina was evicted last night, she was proper getting on my nerves, her language is disgusting and her habits are even worst, I mean come on bitting your toe nails and squeezing your spots on national TV just ain't the one! Shame Mutya decided to walk, at least you know her family is more important then the money! Well thats my rant over and done with!
Love this track and Im loving Keri Hilson too, I've been supporting her way before the collaboration she did with Timbaland on the track 'The Way I Are' which really set off her career in the mainstream. Every week on my BBC Radio 1Xtra RnB show I've been blazing some hot tunes from her and I cant wait to get my hands on her debut album 'In A Perfect World' which is due out in March 09. Check out the track below - very heavy!

Still cant believe we don't have a replacement for this classic comedy show! I remember watching the Real Mccoy every week, then chatting about it at school the next day, pure jokes! If you don't know anything about this, watch below...
Have you got that tune?
Sorry, there's no rooms here!

Just to give the track a little longer on its shelf life, I decided to add a few classic Grime tracks to replace the original beats and now I have my own personal club banger! In this climate where every DJ has access to the same tunes, its all about making your own club/radio bangers!
Flo Rida's Get Low & Grimey (G Child Refix)
Jazmine has proven that even if you fall once in your career you can still get up, brush your shoulders off, go in hard again and still be successful! Jazmine has also been nominated for an outstanding 5 Grammy Awards this year, lets hope she walks away with at least a couple. Check out her recent performance on BET's flagship music show 106 & Park

The 2006 X Factor winner Leona Lewis has decided to write a book about her life story which explains how she came from being a waitress at Pizza Hut to becoming a worldwide household name.
“The last two years have been an unbelievable experience for me. So to have it documented in pictures and to be able to tell people in my own words what it feels like means a lot to me. I know the book will be full of special moments and I’m already having a brilliant time putting it together.”
Yeah I know I'm mad late, but for Christmas I asked for a Nintendo Wii and boy am I loving it, loving it, loving it! Apart from the fact that its had my arms aching for days, its a great console. I've had a few goes on other peoples machines but I thought it was time I owned one for myself. At the moment I only have Wii Sports, Sonic & Mario at the Olympics and some wack Guinness Book Of Records game which is way to complicating. I tried to get Mario Kart, but it had sold out :-( of course I'll have to keep on trying. Everyone is telling me its all about the Wii Fit so I'll have to get myself one of those, beats going to the gym!
Last year we had new albums from:
To name a few, this year we'll get new albums from:
Out this list I wonder which albums will actually be any good? So far from what I've heard The Dream has not impressed me, especially how I thought his debut album was a slept on classic, I'm still expecting better things from him. I hope keri Hilson's album is good, all the tracks I've heard from her so far have been to the right standard. Of course with let down of Usher's latest album I hope he can pull something out of his hat and give us the follow up album to 'Confessions' that we really want to hear!
This year will be a very very interesting year for RnB and music in general - lets wait and see what happens...
The artist that was formally called the Princess of the Roc - Teairra Marie is currently putting the finishing touches to her new album 'At This Point' The question is can she still blow without the backing of her former mentor Jay Z?
Check out the behind the scenes footage of her new video 'Hunt For You'
Never really been a fan of this show, but damn it sure grabbed my attention this time around. I think the mix of people they have in there is spot on and you know something has to go down that will cause some controversy!
I hoping its Ulrika that goes instead of Lucy on Friday, she's good to look at ;-)
Haha - lets see on this Friday's eviction night!

OK welcome back after that short commercial break as they say. Yes I have been slacking on the the updates, but I'm back now to bring the necessary heat you need in your life, starting off with T Pain's new video 'Freeze' which also features Chris Brown! Its not very often that I would tell you to go pick up an album as I believe a lot of them aint worth spending your cash on, (if i'm totally honest) But T Pain's new album 'THR33 Ringz' is a complete master piece! Get it if you don't have it already!
