Hot Video Alert: Mohombi feat. Akon - Dirty Situation
Singer/songwriter and RedOne protege Mohombi is back with his third single, "Dirty Situation," featuring Akon on guest duties. Anyone getting a sense of deja vu here? It all sounds very "Taio Cruz" to me here, not that it's a bad thing. Taio Cruz knows a little bit about hits, considering he's successfully crossed over from the UK with #1 and #2 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 ("Break Your Heart," "Dynamite") not to mention a Top Ten album on the Billboard 200 chart. Mohombi, on the other hand has yet to taste any U.S. success. First single, "Bumpy Ride" (which I posted about HERE) failed to impact the charts here in the States. While it did well elsewhere in Europe, his official debut single in the UK, "Miss Me" featuring American rapper Nelly only managed to squeak by at #66 on the official single charts. Here's hoping that trusty rapper Akon does the trick with single #3. So far...not so good. Released in Europe in November, "Dirty Situation" has only managed to peak at #39 and #92 in Poland and The Netherlands respectively. Yikes.
Mohombi is signed to RedOne's 2101 Records, a joint venture with Universal. His debut album Movemeant is due out in 2011. U.S. fans pick up Mohombi's "Bumpy Ride" on iTunes. The single version is available HERE OR get the remix EP HERE.
