Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail has been a commercial success and although he failed to complete his quest to force the entire music industry to adopt his new rules, he scored an interesting victory with the title track. With the new video for the song featuring Justin Timberlake now hot on the airwaves, let’s review […]
Katy Perry’s “Roar” has been already very successful on the charts but no matter how popular the song gets, it just can’t topple Robin Thicke’s summer anthem, “Blurred Lines”, from the summit of the Billboard Hot 100. Additionally, the song is now facing competition from another Pop giant.
Katy Perry and Lady Gaga engaged in a bloody cat fight on the Billboard Hot 100 during the last week but one Pop star had the sales to back up her claim to the summit. Emerging as the victor between the chart giants was Perry with her latest monster hit, “Roar”, which easily trumped the […]
Let the games begin! With fans eagerly anticipating the biggest chart rumble of the year to date, courtesy of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, they received a preview of the action this week as the former cracked the Billboard Hot 100 while her peer shockingly missed the mark completely.

All records, no matter how impressive, are meant to be broken. Such is the case even with Mariah Carey and her longstanding position as the artist with the biggest radio hit in history. Who dares to challenge the diva of all divas? The man of the hour, Robin Thicke.
There are still many years to go before the end of the 2010-2019 decade but those that have already passed have been action-packed with releases by some of the biggest names in music. From Adele to Lady Gaga and Rihanna, the last 3 and a half years saw a new generation of Pop stars dominate […]
Ciara’s fans have resoundingly told her “I’m out.” Proving the previously reported sales predictions as accurate, the singer’s new self-titled album has tumbled out down the US charts and barely scraped a spot in the top 20 of the Billboard 200. Indeed, it’s a sad day to be a member of the C-Squad.
