In the sprit of Homegrown month 1Xtra’s Sarah Jane spoke to Jay Sean, currently the UK’s biggest export to the US.

Jay’s been around for so long and definitely earned his stripes and put the leg to get signed with the Cash Money famo.

Shouts to sbtv, you’re doin it!

I’ve made my opinion on Beyonce very clear as of late, but this interviewer actually challenges her and she gets kinda pissed! The sound quality is bad but its worth watching for stans of Beyonce (coz they love her every move..) and also cynics like myself.

On a side note, I DONT hate her! Just think she needs a break to regroup.. And according to this video Sasha Fierce is dead, woop woop!

Wow!! UK soulster has gone straight in for the jugular with this.
Singing a freestyle over Dr Dre’s ‘The Watcher’ Mclean actually attacks gangsters, wanksters & 99.9% of the industry for being fakers and not having what it take to be a respected artist.
He obviously has a grudge to bear and hopefully when he comes on my 1xtra R&B show he can explain exactly who has rattled his cage. Watch this space!
Check the joint here…

I’mΒ a huge Raheem Devaughn fan, and it’s a great look for the soulful side of R&B that he is back! To kick the project off in the UK , here is the first single , the Kenny Dope produced slice of top notch Marvin esque Urban bliss “BULLETPROOF” , feat Ludacris. Already a Top Ten Urban record in the U.S. , this sets up what is being viewed as his finest album in the trio “The Love And War Masterpeace” – scheduled in the UK for March 1st.The FIRST UK single will be the NeYo written “I Don’t Care” – promo’d soon.

Whitney Houston is a legend in her own right. She is absolutely ‘the voice’ and has been responsible for some of the biggest riddims in the world on R&B.

Lets take a trip down memory lane.

In between then and now Whitney’s had a well publicised drug habit and has since come out of the other side. Her comeback has been epic, a new album called I Look To You, a memorable performance on the X Factor (for both good and bad reasons) and a world tour. However, one thing that seems to have changed in Whitney is her voice.

She recently performed in Korea as part of her come back tour and sang the song she’s probably most recognised for.

This is sad to see right? This was her 11 years ago singing the same song at Diva’s Live and you can blatently tell the difference.

Lets hope with, maybe a little honey lemon concoction (or maybe just a medical miracle) Whit can get some of her goodies back, coz its a sad day when someone else can sing your song better than you..

JLS did super well at last night’s Brit Awards but theres something familiar about their new song.

See below.

I’m not the biggest JLS fan but the chorus is really catchy which is the part of the song I usually clock first. But I originally didnt realise it was JLS coz it sounds like this..

CHORUS JACKERS!

That is all.
