Hot Video Alert: Nicole Scherzinger - Poison

Poor Nicole Scherzinger hasn't yet been able to find her niche as a solo artist. Hopefully (for her sake), the new RedOne-produced single "Poison" will break that curse and earn this talented singer a spot at the top of the charts. While I'm happy that the other Dolls are free from PCD, Nicole was the front woman for a reason. She's got a POWERFUL voice...whether you love it or you hate it. It's undeniable. "Poison" is out in the UK on November 28th and features an impressive lineup of club remixes from Dave Audé, Cahill, Manufacturered Superstars and Guy Furious. The Joseph Khan-directed video is VERY Gattaca meets Batman in it's look and feel - sort of futuristic retro. I love it. Nicole kicks ass as some kind of FIERCE & FABULOUS super heroine.

The up-tempo club feel of the single really works for Scherzinger and while I think there's a place for the more pop/R&B sound that she attempted with the as-yet unreleased Her Name Is Nicole project (see "Whatever U Like," and "Baby Love") this seems like a wiser choice for a breakout single...especially in the UK. Say what you want about mega producer RedOne but I think that his influence on Nicole here makes for some electro-pop deliciousness. More please!

Hot Video Alert: Robyn - Indestructible

Swedish pop pixie Robyn releases the third and final part of her Body Talk trilogy on November 22nd in the states (November 29th in the UK) on Cherrytree Records. Single #1, "Indestructible" is another slice of synthpop heaven from Robyn, further proving that Robyn can indeed do no wrong. Her past two singles off of Body Talk Parts 1 and 2 have been GORGEOUS electro pop stunners (see "Dancing On My Own" and "Hang With Me") so the fact that this Klas Åhlund-produced masterpiece is just as good shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. The single is out in the UK on November 22nd and is backed by Laidback Luke, The Krays, Laserkraft and Steve Pitron & Max Sanna on the official remix. The sexually charged video (directed by Nils Ljunggren and Max Vitali) features scenes of a couple (and a threesome) going at it, interspersed with shots of a naturally gorgeous Robyn wearing a cool "water jacket" (designed by Lucy McRae) with different colored waters flowing through. Very cool look.

Body Talk will feature 5 songs apiece from Body Talk Parts 1 and Part 2 as well as 5 new songs. EPIC! Check out the album's tracklisting below and watch the hot new video.

1. Fembot
2. Don't Fucking Tell Me What to Do
3. Dancing on My Own
4. Indestructible
5. Time Machine
6. Love Kills
7. Hang with Me
8. Call Your Girlfriend
9. None of Dem (featuring Röyksopp)
10. We Dance to the Beat
11. U Should Know Better (featuring Snoop Dogg)
12. Dancehall Queen
13. Get Myself Together
14. In My Eyes
15. Stars 4-Ever

Hot Video Alert: Kylie Minogue - Get Outta My Way (Live on 'The Tonight Show')

Celebrating her second consecutive #1 Billboard Club hit off of Aphrodite, "Get Outta My Way" Kylie Minogue DAZZLED American television audiences twice last week. First, with an appearance on Dancing With The Stars and finally on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. See! THIS is why I love Kylie Minogue. Unlike a lot of dance pop artists out there, the pint size pop princess can really sing. This really became clear to me after seeing her live last year in Chicago on her first ever North American tour. While her DWTS performance was more in line with what we've seen before on some of her European TV appearances, on The Tonight Show, Ms. Minogue showed us a different side. Minogue performed her new single backed by Ricky Minor and his band. Vocally-speaking, I think Minogue sounded a bit stronger on DWTS but she does alright on Leno, having a ball the whole entire time. When Kylie's having fun, you can see it on her face. Her joy just bubbles over. As if two TV appearances weren't enough. Minogue will also grace us with her presence on the November 7th episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. "Get Outta My Way" impacts mainstream radio on November 1st.

On the tour front, Kylie will launch her "Aphrodite - Les Folies 2011" world tour in Denmark on February 19th. I'm eagerly awaiting news on Kylie's US tour dates, which should be next Spring. Please come to Boston this time Kylie. Love Jamie.

Hot Video Alert: Alexandra Burke - The Silence

Originally due to be released as a previous single, Alexandra Burke is finally releasing her emotional power ballad "The Silence" on November 29th in the UK. The video, shot in beautiful black & white, features a gorgeous Burke dressed in gorgeous gowns, standing in front of a wall of black tiles. As far as ballads go, this is one of the better ones in my opinion. I don't know what it is about ballads that usually put me to sleep but this one is jam packed with big notes and big drama. The stunningly simple video is a nice complement to the song. The single is out a week before the release of a special deluxe version of Burke's debut album, Overcome (see cover art above). "The Silence" will be the fifth single to be released from the album and the follow up to Burke's last #1 "Start Without You." While there's no word yet about any new mixes, "The Silence" was previously remixed by the almighty Almighty (listen HERE). While I wish her the best on release day, Burke's got some stiff competition, with singles also out by Alesha Dixon, Nicole Scherzinger, Robyn, Shakira and Taio Cruz. Yikes. Good luck girl!

Hot Video Alert: Alesha Dixon - Radio

Former Mis-Teeq member Alesha Dixon is back with the second single off her forthcoming third studio album, The Entertainer, called "Radio." "Radio" is going to be released in the UK on November 28th, followed the next day by the album's release.  The single will be backed with remixes by 7th Heaven (listen HERE), True Tiger (listen HERE), Mutated Forms (listen HERE) and a new pop edit featuring Wiley on a guest verse (listen HERE). BRILLIANT!  The single is a decent enough electro-pop-ballad, "Radio" really allows Dixon to showcase her pipes (which honestly, I didn't really know she had). Sure, she's released ballads before but I guess I just paid them no mind. This song isn't anything new but paired up with a dark video about domestic abuse, you've got yourself something interesting...provocative even. As a follow up to the rather cluttered hot mess that was "Drummer Boy" (emphasis on the "HOT"...not the "MESS" - I DID like the song eventually) "Radio" is a pleasant treat for the ears. Pretty song. Well done, Alesha.
