– Producer/Singer/Writer/Rapper extraordinaire Novel ‘@IamNovel was in the studio with Corron Cole from The Movement listening to tracks and finished up his session with Leona Lewis and John Shanks, he also posted some funny pics for us:


– One of my favourite production teams The Runners ‘@therunners discuss who their fans want them to work with/who they are working with. Results = possibly Shakira and definitely Diddy

Claude ‘@ClaudeKelly‘ Kelly travels to Nashville for sessions with Hillary Lindsey & Gordie Sampson, Barry Dean, Marcus Hummon and Shanna Crooks possibly all respectively…

Ciara ‘@PrincessSuperC twits about her many photo shoots and appearances (DAMN girl is getting her promotion in!) and also told us her decisions for her latest singles. They will apparently be “Work” for Pop Radio and “Like A Surgeon” for R&B, which I’m happy about, love both tracks and have wanted a video/release for “Work” since I heard it months ago. She also had a meeting with one of my favourite video directors Melina Matsoukas about the video(s), OMG even more exciting!

Soulshock ‘@SoulshockLA and Karlin got The Backstreet Boys tracks mixed by infamous engineer Serban Ghenea. He also shared some advice Jimmy Jam (of Jam & Lewis) once gave him about making a song sound as great as possible so it gets picked as a single/album track.

Hit-Boy ‘@surfclubhit went into a session with Ron Fair, (of whom he said “i walk in to the session with ron fair and he says “oh he really is a boy” been hearing bout hit-boy for a while lol”) Mary J. Blige and possibly Candice Nelson for Mary’s new album [I’m guessing], exciting stuff!

Cristyle ‘@CRISTYLE_‘ Johnson goes into a session with producers Cool & Dre

James ‘@fauntleroy‘ Fauntleroy went into a session once again with his group The Y’s, can’t wait to see if they have any tracks on Esmée Denters‘s album, it sounds hot from the album sampler!

– Further adding to the gorgeous 90s R&B feel of “Must Be Love”, Cassie ‘@cassieventura was contacted by old school Bad Boy associate producer Rashad Smith telling her he’s done a remix to the track, can’t wait for that, its like being back in the 90s with Bad Boy on top again… [one can only dream!]

Dallas ‘@dalllasaustin‘ Austin promised songs to Keisha Buchanan of The Sugababes. She also confirmed they are working with Jay Brown and was listening to a Stargate & Ne-Yo track written for them. She said of the track: “Its a mid-tempo track!!! The words are very relatable:-D They are giving us a very cool backing to write to so we cant wait to start on that”

Brandy ‘@4everBrandy poses it up in some candid shots once again, this time in Switzerland:



Ryan ‘@ryan_leslie‘ Leslie as promised went into the studio with Kid Cudi where he added his touch to an already planned out Cudi & Plain Pat track…

Chrisette ‘@epiphanygirl‘ Michele expressed interest in working with Mario [Barrett], saying “@mariosoultruth if we dont do something together im not singing any more.” How dope would that collabo be? Get on it you two!

– Finally, Keri ‘@MissKeriBaby‘ Hilson was in the studio with Trina working on a track, I’m guessing on Trina’s album returning the favour [no pun intended!] for “Get Your Money Up”…
