Rita Ora was tapped to perform at the after party for Cartier Juste un Clou. Rita performed with Beyoncé and Jay-z watching from above as she continues her push for the US Market. Rita hit the red carpet in a ravishing black, backless dress wearing Cartier jewelry and then hit the stage in a graffiti dress with knee-high boots. Rita gave an amazing rendition of Say My Name by Destiny’s Child and had party goes tweeting about how much she “rocked”.

Rita on the Fast Track


















When Jay-z took Rita Ora to Z100 to get a feel for her music and the radio station decided to break with a regular rollout and just played her single Rita has zoomed into the public eye. In a flash the Brit is being snapped by the photohogs, her style is being mimicked (Hi Rihanna) and the world is ready for the new pop superstar to be unleashed. Jana Fleshiman , PR executive for Roc Nation, told Billboard the visit put Rita’s career in the “fast lane” and that her exposure was raised “tenfold”. The label is now looking to cash in on their new star as Roc Nation and Columbia are ready to roll out their starlet. Her single is being moved forward, she will spend May touring with DJ Fresh and Coldplay in Europe and the video should hit soon.

Soul 4 Real?

As Beyonce continues to rack up R&B hits from her latest album 4 and as the album is almost at 1.1 million sold Billboard is taking a look as to why the Pop Charts continue to ignore her best album to date. She has only fared top 15 with Best Thing I Never Had. If you listen to pop music it really shouldn’t be a question as to why it doesn’t fit in the music is about love, committment and has actual instruments in the songs not to mention no computer antics needed on her vocals. As Love on Top is beginning to get play on pop maybe the tide could turn but I don’t see it read more if Billboard’s theories on 4 here:http://www.billboard.biz/bbbiz/industry/record-labels/beyonce-s-top-of-mind-at-r-b-but-is-her-1006096952.story what do you think let us know in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri

Adle keeps going and going and going

Adle will be number 1 again on the Billboard 200 and on the Hot 100 yes her album and single is number one at the same time. Adle just passed Titanic soundtrack with the most number of weeks at number 1 in history soundly landing her number 3 behind Garth Brooks and The Bodyguard soundtrack. 21 also broke a record set by The Beatles and Pink Floyd. On top of that wonderful news about 21 her previous album 19 is still in the top twenty and her single Set Fire to the Rain is her 3rd consecutive number one single from this album. I tip my hat to Adle she is killing everyone with just a powerful voice. I am praying hard she single-handedly  ends the evil Euro pop that has invaded pop music. What do you think hit us up in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri
