Cher Lloyd Returns With Sassy ‘Activated’

In: Donovan, Music

After disappointing sales for her sophomore album, Cher Lloyd was dropped from Syco and Epic Records. Two years later, the 22-year-old X Factor alum resurfaces and is doing it on her own terms. She’s releasing new music independently via Vixen Records.

“I’ve waited two years to have creative control of my own career and finally do things my way,” Lloyd revealed in a statement. “Returning with new music and releasing ‘Activated’ is such a huge deal for me. I’ve been working hard on new music and I cannot wait to reveal more to you all!”

Lloyd is as feisty as ever with “Activated.” The spunky track, however, shows off a more mature and decidedly more R&B sound, circa early 2000s. It’s not a bad track but I can’t see it breaking through stateside. Give it a listen below.

Despite dropping some solid tracks including “Freedom,” “FREE.K” and “Messin’ Around” featuring Enrique Iglesias, his Climate Change era has been a major disappointment for Pitbull. None of the aforementioned tracks have cracked the Billboard Hot 100 Top 40. Hell, only “Messin’ Around” has broken into the Top 100. And that only peaked at No. 64.

The 35-year-old rapper appears to be changing his strategy for his latest offering off the album. Believe it or not, he’s not sampling a hit from the 80s or 90s. SHOCKER!!! Instead, he goes with an original uptempo EDM urban-tinged jam with Flo Rida and Lunchmoney Lewis assisting.

Since I’m inexplicably obsessed with Mr. Worldwide, I’m a fan of the track. Give it a listen below. The chorus is infectiously catchy.

wonder-woman-75th-anniversary

In partnership with Warner Bros, the U.S. Postal Service is commemorating the 75th anniversary of one of the most iconic Super Heroes of all time — Wonder Woman. The commemorative stamps will be officially unveiled during this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, with the first-day-of-issue ceremony taking place at New York’s Comic-Con October 7.

First seen in October 1941 in a back-up story for All Star Comics #8, meant to test her appeal at a time when female superheroes were rare, Wonder Woman quickly broke out and headlined her own title by the next year. Subsequent generations came to know the star-spangled heroine with metal bracelets on her wrists and a magic lasso by her waist via her hit 1975-79 television series and roles in animated shows and movies, as well as her historic appearance on the cover Ms. Magazine #1 in 1972. This past March, Wonder Woman was seen for the first time in a live action motion picture with her introduction in the movie “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

The new issuance showcases four different stamp designs on a sheet of 20 stamps depicting Wonder Woman during four eras of comic book history: Golden Age (1941–55), Silver Age (1956–72), Bronze Age (1973–86) and Modern Age (1987–present). Check out below what the US Postal Service has in store for Diana Prince’s diamond anniversary.

After watching this, boy do I ever miss Glee and Mercedes Jones. That is the first two seasons only, of course. The last couple were a hot mess, right?

Amber Riley is set to make her West End debut later this year by starring in Dreamgirls on the London stage. It also marks the UK premiere of the musical, 35 years after first captivating audiences on Broadway.

The 30-year-old actress will play Effie, originally played by Jennifer Holliday and later by Jennifer Hudson in the 2006 feature film. She teased her debut by sharing a performance of “I Am Changing.” Check it out below. It’s fantastic.

“I am so honored and excited to not only be playing such an iconic role, but also to be working with Sonia Friedman and Casey Nicholaw,” Riley said in a press statement. “Working on the West End is now a dream realized, I just feel like this is going to be something special!”

With her time winding down at the White House, Michelle Obama is having a lot more fun these days. Her latest extracurricular activity involved taking a spin with James Corden for a new installment of Carpool Karaoke. As expected, it delivered some memorable moments.

Michelle and James kicked things off by belting out “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by her favorite artist, Stevie Wonder. They then segued to a rendition of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” complete with some car choreography.

Naturally, Obama used the opportunity to promote her initiative Let Girls Learn. That led to a sing-a-long to her all-star charity single, “This Is For My Girls” which included Missy Elliott popping out of thin air. The clip ends will all three having the time of their lives with Elliott’s hit, “Get Ur Freak On.”

Watch FLOTUS aka “Renaissance” get her groove on below. In case you’re wondering, that’s her Secret Service code name.
