Even without an official single to his name, the illuminating vocals of John Martin have graced the biggest pop hits of the last few years. From his unforgettable collaborations with the Swedish House Mafia to powering Tinie Tempah’s anthemic “Children Of The Sun” the songwriter’s credits have always been as a featured artist. This Spring however, the singer-songwriter releases his hugely anticipated debut single “Anywhere For You”.
Released on 31st March, Martin’s solo venture again boasts his magnificent vocals which sing passionately of his loves and the lengths he would go for all of them. Speaking to ContactMusic.com, John went into detail as to which ‘loves’ he was referring to on the track. “It’s all about what is important – friends, family and lovers back home. It’s what really counts in life. It’s the first track off the album to be released as it’s really what I’m about. It means a lot to me personally.”
Full of all the emotion and grandeur which comes with all of the songwriter’s material, “Anywhere For You” was produced by Michael Zitron, with whom John has worked with on prior hits. Martin became a household name back in 2011 when he provided his vocals to both of the Swedish House Mafia’s platinum selling singles “Save The World” and “Don’t You Worry Child”. A possible contender for the number one slot when it’s released, the 33 year old looks set to embark on a successful solo career, having already gained a strong following from numerous guest features.
Always one for creating hysteria with every new release, Nicki Minaj returns to the rap arena, unleashing a furious new single that reverts back to the earlier sounds of the fiery female. Reigniting another war-of-the-sexes themed argument, new track ‘Lookin Ass’ spews a three minute tirade against slick, two faced guys whose fabricated ways of living are exposed by the Young Money rapper. Minaj adds glamour to the foul mouthed affair with the official video capturing the star’s much admired figure paraded on a beach.
‘Lookin Ass’ is the first single taken from Nicki Minaj’s forthcoming album, ”The Pink Print”. Although no release date has been officially announced, the multi-platinum selling artist spoke briefly about it on renowned DJ, DJ Drama’s Shade 45 radio show. She said, “It’s a classic album …that’s all I can think about right now. …I’m just working on the album. Nothing else is really gonna take precedence over that.”
Although ‘Lookin Ass’ sees the “Starships” performer drop numerous expletives all throughout, the track’s controversy stems from Minaj’s use of an iconic image of Malcolm X for the single’s artwork. The family of the iconic Civil Rights leader were among many who criticised the 31 year old’s use of the picture, citing that the song did not reflect the revered leader’s legacy. Minaj has since apologised and distanced the track from the image.

Having entertained Hip Hop heads for over a decade with humorous punchlines and raw delivery, Ludacris now finds himself amongst the elite circle of artists who have remained relevant in the industry far beyond ten years. Continuously reinventing his style to match the current market, Luda enlists new schoolers Wiz Khalifa and RnB sensation Jeremih to help on his raunchy single “Party Girls”. The Atlanta lyricist gets seductive, exploring all the ways he aims to please his female admirers, whilst Khalifa and Jeremih support in adding more lusty offerings.
“Party Girls” surprisingly samples the 90′s cheesy pop song “Barbie Girl” by Aqua, but flips the Nordic guilty pleasure into a darker, more erotic outing by producer Cashmere Cat. Ludacris has long served both the female fans as well as the fellas from his first outing way back in the year 2000. From risque jams such as “What’s Your Fantasy” to the heavyweight cuts like “Roll Out”, Ludacris has delivered standout material, which has earned him respect from rap music’s A-List superstars. The man born Christopher Bridges has collaborated with Nas, Kanye West and Jay-Z in addition to help breaking names such as Shawnna, Chingy and the man formerly known as Tity Boy, now more commonly referred to as 2 Chainz.
Whilst the eldest of the track’s protagonists adds to his legacy, relative newcomer Wiz Khalifa continues to carve out his own illustrious career. Since emerging in 2009, Khalifa has fast become one of the A list names in rap, having featured on a number of heavyweight collaborative efforts whilst boasting both successful mixtapes and albums. Arguably the rapper’s proudest moment to date has been his transition into fatherhood as the “Black And Yellow” star recently spoke about with Hip Hop DX. “Everybody has that point where they grow up and you get more responsibilities and schedule your life and you do things a little bit differently than you did when you was younger … so my kid coming into my life and helping me structure everything has helped me as a person and as a business person.”
The UK’s pop princess Pixie Lott brings a striking, sultry sound for new single “Nasty” as the blonde beauty gears up for her forthcoming new album. The 23 year old takes to a steamy, underground club in the song’s official video, showing off her much admired figure with dance moves and swagger to match. A favourite of UK radio, as well as the tabloid newspapers, Pixie Lott continues to gain attention from both mediums as “Nasty” boasts both her musical attributes and visual appeal. The track and video have already raised some eyebrows due to its raunchy nature. Speaking to The Mirror newspaper, Lott explained the song’s concept. “It’s all about being naughty and cheeky. I didn’t feel self-conscious at all – I just embraced it. After all, I was 18 when I started and I’ve grown up now.”
Although a popular face in the printed press, the young starlet has achieved more than just having column inches dedicated to her. Victoria Lott’s early releases “Mama Do” and “Boys And Girls” both topped the UK singles charts back in 2009, whilst her debut album “Turn It Up” reached the number six position in the Album Charts. An MTV European Music Award winner, Pixie Lott has also collaborated with Jason Derulo, Tinchy Stryder and US rap star Pusha T. Pixie Lott’s self titled third studio album will be released in March, with the project said to have been inspired by the Motown sound of the 1960s and ’70s.
Most recently, Pixie Lott hooked up with fellow Brit act The Vamps to record a collaborative version of “Nasty”. The four piece group and Pixie had previously worked together, when the female star provided vocals for a re-recording of their hit “Wild Heart”.
