The BLACK EYED PEAS released a new track called 'Just Can't GetEnough,'as the second single off their sixth studio record 'The Beginning'. It's a simpler, very laidback track and sounds in comparison to "The Time (Dirty Bit)"; more like an old school BEP track.

It has a club-friendly beat and lyrics that include:
"Boy I think about it every night and day / I'm addicted wanna jump inside your love / I wouldn't wanna have it any other way / I'm addicted and I just can't get enough." ...The track was produced by, DJ Ammo and Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins. Stream the song here:

'WHAT THE HELL'- Avril Lavigne's new song!

"Honestly, I just need to be a little bit crazy!..." sings Avril Lavigne in her brand new song
What The Hell- the lead single from her upcoming fourth studio album, Goodbye Lullaby.After a few listen, I find it very similar to her 2007 smash hit 'Girlfriend'. Poppy, fun and will inevitably get stuck in your head...It's essentially designed to be a hit!

SWEET PEA by Amos Lee

Where the hell am I when this song released?...Amos Lee's soulful voice and touching lyrics make me play this song over and over. You cannot go wrong with this one.

Sweet pea, apple of my eye
Don't know when and I don't know why
You're the only reason I keep on coming home

Sweet pea, what's all this about?

Don't get your way, all you do is fuss and pout
You're the only reason I keep on coming home

I like the Rock of Gibraltar

I always seem to falter
And the words just get in the way
Oh ,I know I'm gonna crumble
I'm trying to stay humble
But I never think before I say

Sweet pea, keeper of my soul

I know, sometimes, I'm out of control
You're the only reason I keep on coming
You're the only reason I keep on coming, yeah
You're the only reason I keep on coming home

Glad to hear that one of my favorite band CAKE are back with a new album SHOWROOM OF COMPASSION and I just wished that this would be available locally.I really love this band because t
here are many different elements in their music (country, hip-hop, jazz, rockabilly etc.) and it makes them a very unique band. The lead vocalist, John McCrea is my idea of a true songwriter-- a great lyricist with the right mix of humor, sincerity and wit. All that and tasty vocals to can't lose with CAKE!

Listen to the first track off the album titled Sick Of You.

BRUNO MARS back on top!

Half-Filipino artist BRUNO MARS started 2011 as America's pop chart king- his latest single GRENADE has blasted Katy Perry's Firework off the top of the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart. The feat marks singer-songwriter's second solo chart-topper, matching the success of his debut 'Just The Way You Are' last year.

It's also the first time a male solo artist has taken his first two singles to top the charts in 13 years (P. Diddy was the last to do it with the one-two punch of "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" and "I'll Be Missing You" in year 1997).

If you count B.o.B's "Nothin' on You," it's Mars' third consecutive number one song, which is an incredible accomplishment for such a young artist.

There's a buzz that the Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and producer will set foot in the country on April 9 at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. More details here.
