Leona Lewis is throwing some shade Rihanna and DJ/Producer Calvin Harris’ way. In a recent chat with the Daily Star, Leona claims that she had recorded the single, We Found Love with Harris first before he apparently replaced her with Rihanna.

“I worked with Calvin and we recorded We Found Love. But he went touring with Rihanna and she ended up releasing it. I didn’t commit to it because I wanted Trouble to be my [next] single so I think that was another reason they went with Rihanna.” She continues, “It was the same version and production but mine’s better.” Oh really…

According to the article, Leona still has the tapes. Should we have a battle?

Rihanna Is Red Hot For Vogue

In: Music, Random Reads, Tyrell

Is it just me or does it feel like Rihanna is getting a little overexposed. I mean seriously. She has her seventh studio album coming out this November, she’s going on a world tour again and she’s gracing magazine covers like crazy. When can this girl just take a break from the spotlight to actually focus on releasing a quality track that’s really going to blow us away? You can’t actually tell me that she expected Diamonds to be a run away smash. Don’t get me wrong, I am loving the single but when are we going to get another epic Rihanna song like Only Girl In The World?

In any case, this Rihanna reign isn’t letting up so in the meantime, I’m just going to embrace it and share some exciting news. On Friday via Twitter, Rihanna announced that she was once again going to be gracing the cover of Vogue magazine in the US. Her first cover hit shelves in April of last year. She’s also graced Vogue covers in the UK and in Italy. The cover photo was shot by famed photographer Annie Lebibovitz. Rihanna’s short haircut looks stunning with her red lipstick and lacey dress backdropped by a dry, grassy knoll reminiscent of her We Found Love video.

In a double whammy release, Rihanna has revealed both the title of her new album as well as the cover art. The name of her new album is called Unapologetic and it’s slated for release on November 19.

The singer made the announcement on Twitter, writing “My NEW album ‘UNAPOLOGETIC’ will be released on NOVEMBER 19th WORLDWIDE #Navy,” and also attached the album’s cover. On the album cover, Rihanna sports her short pixie cut and is topless. All across her body are words like “Victory,” “Sensored,” “Fearless” and “Side Effects” among others. This is Rihanna’s seventh studio album and she looks absolutely hot on the cover.

Diamonds,” her first single on the album is also the name of the album tour. She is also set to perform at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in December. Check out her new album cover below.

During the week of October 3, 1992, Billboard launched its Pop Songs radio airplay chart, gauging the biggest hits on mainstream Top 40 radio. To commemorate the chart’s 20th anniversary, Billboard is counting down the Top 100 Pop Songs on the chart over the past two decades (1992-2012). From rock to country music and everything in between, each genre is represented well in the countdown. That said, you’ll be surprised to know who lands in the Top 10.

Given that it’s a Pop Chart, you’d assume the artists in the above picture would’ve made the upper echelon of the list. Sure Katy Perry, Britney Spears, LMFAO and Adele make the Top 100 cut, but fail to make the Top 10. Instead, the list is occupied mostly by pop-rock ballads with a dance track thrown in for good measure. Even more shocking is who landed the No. 1 slot. Here are a few highlights from the Top 100 Pop Song list, with the Top 10 after that.

  • 97. “Grenade” Bruno Mars (2011)
  • 81. “My Love” Justin Timberlake Featuring T.I
  • 79. “Stickwitu” The Pussycat Dolls
  • 73. “Complicated” Avril Lavigne (2002)
  • 68. “Promiscuous” Nelly Furtado
  • 66. “Genie In A Bottle” Christina Aguilera
  • 51. “Lovefool” The Cardigans
  • 48. “The Sign” Ace Of Base
  • 43. “You Belong To Me” Taylor Swift (2009)
  • 40. “Don’t Let Go (Love)” En Vogue
  • 30. “You Were Meant For Me” Jewel
  • 27. “Bleeding Love” Leona Lewis
  • 16. “…Baby One More Time” Britney Spears
  • 15. “Tik Tok” Ke$ha
  • 12. “We Found Love” Rihanna Featuring Calvin Harris

December is my favorite time of year, and not just because of Christmas, New Year’s Eve and all the parties. The month also brings me one of my favorite annual television events… the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Yup, I love me some supermodels sashaying on a glittered runway in their bra, panties and bedazzled outfits. I’ve been a religious viewer for as long as they’ve been airing them. Last year brought the show their best Nielsen ratings since 2002. Coming off that success, I expect the 2012 show to be the most fabulous ever.

Every year, musical acts are brought in to provide some “live” singing interspersed with all the wicked mashups. Last year brought Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and Jay-Z. While Katy Perry and Akon, along with the Black Eyed Peas booked the gig for the 2010 and 2009 shows respectively. This year, the honor goes to Rihanna. The “We Found Love” singer is scheduled to perform at the upcoming event which will be taped in November and air on December 4, 2012 at 10pm on CBS. The Bajan beauty singer won’t be alone. She’ll be joined by two male solo acts as well. Care to make any guesses?

Rihanna Debuts Brand New Single, ‘Diamonds’

In: Music, Tyrell

There is no one that grinds harder than Rihanna. It’s hard to believe but Rihanna is already ready to release ANOTHER new album and this morning, debuted a brand new single. Diamonds received worldwide radio release this morning at 8am EST and had fans alike rushing to their radio dials to hear the Stargate produced track.

So shine bright tonight, you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive, we’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Shine bright like a diamond

The singer had previously referred to the track as “happy and hippy.” I personally, find the track to feel a little Lana Del Rey with a Rihanna twist. The hook and post-chorus are catchy but kind of sound like Del Rey’s National Anthem, no? The track was penned by Sia and and I can definitely hear that influence in the single as well. Overall, I think that Rihanna will find success in the song. I like that she didn’t just stick to her dancefloor formula but took a risk with a more midtempo track.

Tonight, the 2012 MTV VMAs are taking place tonight at Staples Stadium and I’m crossing my fingers for some memorable, performances. Earlier today, we shared Matt‘s Top 10 Favorite VMA Performances and hopefully tonight there will be a performance that can be added to the list.

I’ve included the live stream for the red carpet arrivals that are taking place right now. As I type this, Rihanna just arrived debuting a sexy new short hair cut that looks fierce while in a sexy white dress amazing on her. Also, Kesha arrived right after in a sexy black dress and also looked amazing!

Who do you think is opening? I’m hoping Christina Aguilera will debut her new, unreleased track (“Your Body“)! Watch all the action in the live stream below!

Mariah Carey has 15. Kristine W has 16 under her belt. Beyonce and Rihanna are tied with 18. Even Janet Jackson who’s the closest, only has 19 to her name. With her current single, “Turn Up The Radio“, Madonna notches her record 43rd No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance Club chart, further extending her lead on her dance compatriots. The 54-year-old singer may not be relevant on radio anymore, but she’s still able to pack them to the dance floor. She’s definitely the undisputed dance queen.

If Madonna scores another chart topper on the Dance Club chart, it would bring her total to 44 No. 1s. That would place her in a tie with George Strait as having the most toppers on ANY single Billboard chart. The country singer has 44 titles, dating back to 1981 all the way to 2009. With just two more dance hits, Madge could be the Queen of the Billboard charts. How many of the Material Girl’s 43 dance hits do you remember? Check out all of them below, beginning with her first club hit “Holiday”/”Lucky Star” from September 1983.
