The demo for Britney Spears’ new song Hold it Against Me from her seventh-studio album due in March leaked last week. Unfortunately, the demo is not performed by Spears, but by singer/songwriter Bonnie McKee (who sounds a lot like Ke$ha).
The demo is amazing, even if Bonnie McKee released this song it could be a top 10 hit, but with Britney on the track it’ll be her next big hit. The song has an incredible hook, and will most certainly be a hit with clubs. The song has all the makings of a standard Britney song, good verses that do not take much talent to sing, but are incredible anyway. We cannot wait.

After taking a week off letting Bruno Mars stay atop the Billboard Hot 100 Katy Perry’s Firework returns to the top. This is the fourth non-consecutive week this song has been atop the chart. Last year, Perry stayed at #1 for 6 weeks with California Gurls and an additional 2 weeks with Teenage Dream.
Last week’s chart victor Bruno Mars’s Grenade fell to #2 on the chart, and Ke$ha’s We R Who We R hung on to #3.
At last night’s People’s Choice Awards Katy Perry picked up the awards for “Favorite Female Singer” and “Favorite Web Celeb”
We LOVE Miranda Cosgrove! She acts her age, is hillarious, and makes fun music. After releasing the pop princess’ smash debut Sparks Fly last Spring Cosgrove is prepping the release of her second album. She premiered her first single Dancing Crazy and it is amazing! Its fun and we cannot wait for her record. The song is very Miley (circa 7 Things) a little Ke$ha for the auto-tuned chorus and she sounds exactly like Taylor Swift at the bridge, and we love it!
Can’t wait for the new album!

Not bad for after Christmas sales? What CD Did U Pick Up This Week?
This wednesday (Jan. 5) are the 37th Annual People’s Choice Awards. Queen Latifah is hosting the CBS aired event, and although the event may not make a huge impact on pop-culture it is a representation of what people think about artists in the industry. This early in the year it is important to tell where people’s minds are when it comes to purchasing music, and this is one of the few shows in which (obviously) the viewers vote.
We listed who we think will win, and we also listed who should win. Just for kicks who we voted for.
- Airplanes by B.o.B featuring Hayley Williams
- California Gurls by Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg
- Love The Way You Lie by Eminem featuringRihanna
- OMG, by Usher featuring will.i.am
- Telephone by Lady Gaga featuring Beyoncé
Should Win: California Gurls by Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg
Will Win: California Gurls by Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg
Voted For: Love The Way You Lie by Eminem featuring Rihanna
First, lets note how music has changed because throughout the decade, all of these songs are collaborations, not a single solo act. The biggest song of this year was Ke$ha’s Tik Tok, but if that song is out of the way Katy Perry is a close #2. We voted for Love the Way You Lie because lyrically that song is FAR superior to any other in that category.

Lady Gaga had 2010s top-selling album internationally with The Fame Monster. The eight track EP which was released in November 2009 sold over 5.8 million copies worldwide. WOW!
Also appearing in the top 10 are Justin Beiber, Taylor Swift, Susan Boyle and Alica Keys.
Take That, Rihanna, Florence and the Machine, and Ke$ha were in the Top 40:
Ke$ha’s collaborators have been limited to 3OH!3, Flo Rida, and Taio Cruz, but in a recent interview Ke$ha names a few more. When asked about collaborators Ke$ha said she would love to work with her tour mate Rihanna, she thinks that when she first started recording music she never saw herself working with someone like Rihanna, but now the pair are good friends.
There was one name that was instantly thwarted from the list, when Lil’ Kim was mentioned Ke$ha responded saying she would rather work with Nicki Minaj, harsh. Ke$ha also hinted at one more act when interviewers were suggesting acts Ke$ha said:
That’d be cool, but you know who’d be cooler, B.o.B.
Now that is a collaboration I would like to see, what do you think who should Ke$ha work with next.
