Rachel Stevens To Return To Music

According to an article written for The Mirror today, Rachel Stevens was quoted saying that she will be returning to the studio next year.

I caught up with the lovely Rachel Stevens at Take That’s PlayStation 3 SingStar game launch, and she revealed she’s ready to get back to her one true love.

Rachel told me: “I love music – that’s my main passion in life so I’m going to head back into the studio and start working on new music next year. I’ve had a nice break from recording and I’m ready to get back to what I truly love doing.”

It was just a shame that while I nattered to Rachel, London’s notoriously worst-dressed party person and cling-on to the stars, Fran Cutler, decided to throw me out of the VIP area midconversation.

Cheryl Cole – “3 Words” Video Premier

The music video for Cheryl Cole’s upcoming single 3 Words featuring Will.I.Am premiered earlier today. The video is very different to Cheryl’s debut Fight For This Love as this time it’s not Cheryl dancing in front of a green screen. The video is edited into a split screen effect showing Cheryl and Will on each side of the screen making it look like Cheryl and Will didn’t film the video together.

The video doesn’t really go anywhere although many would argue that the song doesn’t either. Overall I don’t like it yet but maybe after watching it a few more views I might change my mind.

3 Words…To Save My Life

Cheryl Cole’s upcoming second single, 3 Words, premiered this morning on Chris Moyles’ BBC Radio 1 show. As a Will.I.Am produced track it’s unexpectedly and surprisingly brilliant.

Dubbed by Cheryl herself as the best song on her upcoming debut, 3 Words is a melancholic, mid-tempo piece of dance pop with a bit of an edge to it. Slightly experimental but at the same time it’s easy to recognise that it comes from the same place as tracks on The Black Eyed Peas latest album The E.N.D., particularly I Gotta Feeling. It wouldn’t sound out of place sat next to the latter, Missing You and Meet Me Halfway but judging from the clips of Cheryl’s debut album, it could sound out of place on there.

3 Words has the potential to be a huge hit for Cheryl. If clubs take to it like I Gotta Feeling, a number one is definitely in the bag.

You can listen to a clip of 3 Words below:

Sugababes – “About A Girl” Music Video

The video for the debut single from Sugababes 4.0 About A Girl has been released following a rough edit which surfaced on the internet late last week. The final edit still features Amelle’s little “slip” at around 3:25 in the video (3:08 in the remix video). Below is the Sharp Boys Club Radio Edit using the final video edit:

While a good effort and idea, it wasn’t executed very well and comes across as slightly cheap and the actors (originally 3.0’s stunt doubles) could be mistaken for the Sugababes themselves by the casual viewer.
