THE MTV VMA NOMINEES ANNOUNCED:
SWIFT & BEYONCE GOING HEAD TO HEAD COULD PROMPT ANOTHER KANYE OUTBURST…surely not!

CHRIS ‘BREEZY’ Does NICKI MINAJ

Since Usher buckled, dropped the baton and licked his head on the barriers with Here I Stand, I’ve been looking to Chris Brown to represent. Then last year, some stuff went down, the stores wouldn’t stock his album, he closed his Twitter account and it looked like it was over for Breezy.

But this year, I’ve noticed he’s put the work in.  Since Graffiti, he’s dropped the In My Zone mixtape, teamed up with Tyga from Young Money to drop the Fan Of A Fan mixtape (with tunes like ‘Deuces’, ‘G Shit’ & ‘Holla @ Me’) and between all of that he’s been remixing other people’s tunes.

Ok, yes the MJ tribute at the BET Awards did vex me – (no need for them tears). But his work-rate is something like Weezy’s and that’s impressive!

This guy’s the next to blow! Like Drizzy and Breezy, he sings and raps but he also produces and writes on top of that.

His name’s Bei Maejor and he dropped his mixtape Upside Down (featuring collabs with Drake, T-Pain, Keri Hilson & Trey Songz) this week. Click here

If you like Trey Songz, you’ll like Bei Maejor… because he’s better.

The only problem with the free download is that most of the tunes are down-tempo, it needs some bangers (like a ‘I Can Transform Ya’ or a ‘U Dont Have To Call’) but hey, I guess that’s something we can expect from his forthcoming album out later this year.

I’d been told about the singing skillz of the lovely Preeya Kalidas long before she lit up our screens as Amira, scorned girlfriend / wife of then closet homosexual Syed (played by Marc Elliot) on the popular soap Eastenders.
It therefore came as no surprise to me when i was told she was departing the square to pursue a music career, and pursuing it the lady is.
Clock in to find out what happened when i met up with Preeya as we spoke about music & life after Eastenders…And will she ever return to the Square?
Enjoy!
