Up-and-coming R&B singer Junior is creating quite a buzz in Los Angeles and Atlanta. The LA transplant sings, writes, produces, and crafts the beats for his own songs. Junior has been described as a cross between Bruno Mars and Miguel. Major labels are already showing an interest in Junior. Let him know what you think of his song titled “What Have You Done”.
Rap mogul Ludacris has a hit on his hands with his new R&B group called Untitled. The Disturbing Tha Peace Records R&B Group Untitled presents their first official video for their Silk sampled single “Don’t Stop”.
Ludacris reads the blog, so let him know how you ladies feel about his new group. R&B is back!

According to online reports, YouTube rap sensation Kreayshawn’s Internet buzz is so loud that mega record labels are taking notice. The baby faced 20-year-old has reportedly landed a $1 million record deal with Sony Music.
When she’s not rapping, the self-proclaimed “occasional lesbian” directs music videos for East Bay rapper Lil B.
Since her performance at SXSW in Austin, Texas in March, Kreayshawn has had the Internet going nuts. Rumored to have recently signed a $1 million contract with Sony after dropping her new video, ‘Gucci Gucci,’ which accrued 1.6 million hits on YouTube in two weeks, Kreayshawn is the next logical step for hipster hip-hop fans, following fellow West Coast oddball-indie success stories Odd Future and Lil B. (The Boom Box)
Earlier this week, Kreayshawn hinted that the Sony deal was on the table:
“[As far as the deal with Sony] nothing is finalized yet,” she told Complex. “We took meetings with every label. They’re not the only people we met with. We’ll make an announcement when everybody is ready, but right now, that’s basically just a rushed ahead rumor. It’s not that exciting. Whatever we end up choosing, it’s going to be a well-thought out decision.” (Complex)
Home made video by an aspiring singer, former model and eye candy Brandon Carter, for his independent single “Set The Mood”. This video is the first single off Brandon’s new MixTape “The Audacity Of DOPE”. The mixtape can be downloaded for free at http://brandoncarter.com. Tell him Sandra Rose sent you and he’ll send you an autographed photo of his Hawt bod!
Note to aspiring singers: don’t wait around for a label to discover you and sign you to a record deal where they get 95% of the profits. Make your own music videos and mixtapes. Then upload your music online. The music industry is dead.
Some of my regulars may remember my Bubblin’ Under newcomer feature on Nikki Jane. For the rest of you, click here.
I just got word from Nikki’s sister Kim Burse (who also happens to be Beyonce’s tour creative director), who said Nikki just made the Billboard charts! Nikki’s single “I Love You” entered the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles at #2! The hawt single also charted at #13 on the Hot Singles Sales chart.
Nikki Jane is currently doing In-Stores with F.Y.E as well as New Face New Artists and performing in Malls around the country in an attempt to continue building her fan base.
Kim B, who is the CEO 311 Music Group, is so excited! She wrote in her email: “PRAYER CHANGES THINGS!!!! THANKS FOR EVERYONE’S SUPPORT!!”
