Ms Mr can count the likes of Zane Lowe and the newspaper the Guardian as some of their biggest fans, and you know what we don’t blame them. The New York based duo have this exciting and genius way of bringing exciting new music to the table. Something they proved in 2012 with the release of their singles ‘Bones’ and ‘Hurricane’. The band have now confirmed that they’ll release their brand new single ‘Fantasy’ on March 10. The track is described in its press release as ‘ a huge rush of cinematic electronic pop’. Mr Mrs are exciting and fresh! We can’t wait to find out more!
‘Fantasy’ was written and produced by the band and mixed by Tom Elmhirst who’s worked with Adele and Amy Winehouse. Listen to ‘Fantasy’ below:
Ms Mr have also been confirmed to tour the UK through February and March with UK act, Bastille. The dates can be found below:
Apart from the list above, Mr Mrs will also play in London at the 11th of March where they are headlining at the XOYO.

We wrote about Jarell a few weeks back, labelling him as the missing link between the likes of Usher and Drake, so no wonder we felt we had to past yet another great R&B jam from the singer, in the lead up to his ‘Simple Things’ LP in the spring.
This time we’re treated to a collaboration with LA based THURZ called ‘Keep Livin’. The track is taken of their brand new project called ‘Blood on the Canvas‘ which is to be released in a very short time . As for the track itself, Keep Livin’, is a mixture of rap provided by THURZ blended together with the silky vocals of Jarell. Pretty awesome if you ask us.
Check the video, which was released last week below:
The ex-Pussycat doll front woman and still current X Factor judge has unveiled the video for her new single ‘Boomerang’. Produced by, Will.IAM, the new single ‘Boomerang’ is to be released on March 10 in the UK.
It’s quite a style change for Scherzy. In fact we had to listen twice before we actually realized it was Nicole. It’s an interesting one this new track but if we’re being honest not quite at the same wave length as her other UK singles (‘Poison’s still our favourite). Should we write off Scherzy completely with this single? not really… we bet with a few more listens we’ll absolutely love it.
The video on the other hand is something we do actually like a lot. Brand new style for Scherzy, with lots of Nicole-twins and even some glitter and lasers, what more do we need.
‘Boomerang’ is out on March 10. It’s the first lead single taken from Nicole Scherzinger’s second album which is out later in the year.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with fancying the pants of an artist who’s music is oh so fingerlickingly good. We’re talking about the amazing Baker of course. born in New York, but relocated to Los Angeles the young singer songwriter has been making the nice weather states wise, with some amazing pop/dance songs. His latest offering is ‘If U Luv Me’ for which he recently aired the video.
All pumped up with a blue ipod-boombox Baker is all good to go for what we hope is a hugely successful year in the States and on this side of the pond. Lyric-wise and production wise it’s all sounding brilliant. With a hint of Frank Vincent we’re already huge fans!
We’re waiting for a confirmation on when the song will be available but wouldn’t deny you the fact of checking out Baker’s ‘If U Luv Me’. 2013 is getting pretty awesome!
Can James Arthur continue his reign over the UK singles charts after this festive season or are we getting a brand new number one? We’re about to find out.
But before we have a look at the top of this weeks let’s check out what else has been going on in the charts. With the festive season being officially over, it’s a slow chart with only a few new entries in the charts. Despite their impressive debut single, Rudimental’s new single ‘Not Giving In’ ft Alex Clare only manages to enter the chart at number 40. Not the best start, which can also be said for the christmas number 1, ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ by the Justice Collection has a hard knock, falling 16 places to number 21. One Direction’s new single ‘Kiss You’ which is only been released officially today, drops 3 places to number 26. But it’s not all bad for the boys as ‘Little Things’ is still in the top 20 at 17 and ‘Live While We’re Young’ rests for another week on 39. It therefore joins Adele’s Skyfall, the Lumineers Ho Hey and Labrinth & Emeli Sande as non-movers in this weeks chart.
There’s better news for Dj Fresh, who’s collaboration with Miss Dynamite steps up a huge 10 places finishing in 22nd place this week. 2012 favourites Carley Rae Jepsen and Calvin Haris ft Florence Welch are lucky ones too, seeing their hits ‘Call Me Maybe’ and ‘Sweet Nothing’ go up again and reach a respectable 25th and 18th place this week. Same can be said for P!nk who’s receiving lots of love going up 8 places to number 14.
There’s also a few entries re-appearing this week, biggest being the latest single for Tinie Tempah and Calvin Harris. ‘Drinking From the Bottle’ at 15. Harris is in fact, alongside One Direction the only artist to have three singles in this week’s chart.
Also good news for Swedish House Mafia, who’s last track ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ enters the top ten again at 9. Their track is the 13th highest selling single of 2012. Even better news for Rihanna, who has two singles in the top 10; Diamonds at 8 and ‘Stay’ ft Mikky Ekko enters the top ten at number 7. Olly Murs just misses out on the top 5, while Taylor Swift enjoys her new found pop status at 5 with ‘I knew You Were Trouble’. Bruno Mars continues to do well as well and goes to number 4 this week. South Korean rapper Psy remains at 3 which leaves the battle right between Will.I.AM and James Arthur…. so what’s the verdict? James Arthur remains on top for another week, leaving Will.I.AM and Britney Spears at number 2. Congratulations to X Factor winner James Arthur.
