KELLY CLARKSON’S “STRONGER” IN STORES STARTING NOVEMBER

SOURCE: www.kellyclarkson.com

Since bursting onto the music scene 10 years ago, Kelly Clarkson has released 4 studio albums (Thankful, Breakaway, My December, All I Ever Wanted), sold over 20 million albums worldwide, 10 million albums in the US and has had 7 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart.  She is the recipient of 2 Grammy Awards, 2 American Music Awards, 2 MTV Awards and 11 Billboard Awards.  Clarkson’s last effort, 2009’s All I Ever Wanted debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and produced the smash singles “My Life Would Suck Without You” and “Already Gone.”

Kelly Clarkson has this to say about the first single, “Mr. Know It All” was the last song that we got for the album, and we’d already kind of finished the album. And it came about through—my manager called me and my A&R guy Jeff Aldrich, too, had gotten this song, and they said, “Oh, they’d really love her to sing it.” I was like, “Oh man we’re done with the album, come on…” And they sent me the song and then I said, “Ok cool, I’ll listen, it might be great, you never know.” And it was. I love the song. It’s super sassy; it’s different from everything else that is on the radio. It’s different from what I’ve done, or released especially as a first single, so um… It’s a real sassy and fun song and I love the point of, like, people think they know you but they don’t ‘cause there’s many different sides to people, so it’s ignorant to think you know someone completely, so um… I love that mentality.

Clarkson co-wrote five tracks on Stronger, a process she feels is therapeutic. Her favorite song on the album is “You Love Me,” which she says she wrote following an incident that she thought would break her. “It was probably the most hurt I’ve ever been in my life,” she admits. “But by writing about it, I got to work through it and get it out of my system.” The remainder of the songs were written by a host of A-list songsmiths, including Rodney Jerkins, Ester Dean, Bonnie McKee, and Toby Gad, whom Clarkson says really took the time to get to know her style. She also credits her producers, Jerkins, Kurstin, Abraham, and Gad among them, for what she says is the biggest difference between Stronger and her previous albums.

“What separates this album are the vocals,” she says. “They sound richer and fuller, and, for the first time, how I sound when I’m performing live. The producers I worked with just let me sing and be me. They didn’t strip away the personality. And it was one of those things where if the people I’m working with have confidence in me, I have more confidence in myself and that changed everything. I can’t wait to perform these songs on tour. I think that’s the best way to get to know an artist, and where you get to see actual personality, because we can’t hide much onstage.”

And how does she think her fans around going to react to Stronger? “I have an indication that they know they’re going to love it,” she says. “I ran into a fan the other day in Target. It was a mom and her daughter and they were just like, ‘Oh my God, we don’t even care what you put out if you could just put something out.’ It’s funny, they didn’t even care what it was. I love that people still get excited about new music.

STRONGER available in music stores nationwide starting November 2011, only from Ivory Music & Video, the official licensee of Sony Music in the Philippines.

J.COLE TAKES CENTER STAGE WITH THE #1 ALBUM SELLING 217,000 IN ITS FIRST WEEK

Source: rocnation.com/j-cole

Selling 217,000 copies, Roc Nation artist, J. Cole has scored the #1 album in the country with his debut release Cole World: The Sideline Story. Rolling Stone praises Cole’s “killer punch lines” and USA Today declares “it’s Cole’s own impressive skills that got him into the game and off the sidelines for good.”

This release not only puts J.Cole at the top of the charts, Cole World: The Sideline Story is officially the biggest debut album from a new artist this year and the first debut album by a solo artist to debut in the # 1 position in over 17 months. In addition, J. Cole has scored the biggest digital album debut from a new artist since January 2010.

“J. Cole’s success is testament to amazing artist development and Cole’s hard work,” stated Shawn “JAY Z “ Carter. “I want to congratulate him on a #1 album and more importantly a great body of work.”

“J Cole personifies humility and grace with edge and depth. As an MC, his point of view speaks to and represents me. I’m proud and blessed to be a part of his journey!” added Mark Pitts, President of Urban Music, Sony / JIVE Records and CEO, Bystorm Entertainment.

The mostly self-produced album was propelled by the first single, “Work Out,” which Entertainment Weekly celebrated as, “well worth the wait.” The follow-up single is the Brian Kidd produced banger, “Can’t Get Enough” featuring the multi-platinum artist, Trey Songz.

J.Cole received enormous support from BET, MTV and MTV2. He was the first artist to kick off MTV2’s new music franchise, Sucker Free Road to Release as well as being profiled as an MTV PUSH Artist. BET named J. Cole a “Music Matters” artist, he performed on the 2010 BET Awards and BET Hip Hop Awards, and he appeared on 106th & Park six times over the past year, which culminated with his BET 106 & Park takeover on September 27th.

J.Cole has taken audiences by storm and has also earned rave reviews for his critically-acclaimed mixtape, Friday Night Lights and for his opening slot on international superstar Rihanna’s LOUD Tour this summer. He is currently headlining Cole World…World Tour across the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

With the ability to write thought provoking songs packed with sharp wit and clever lines, Cole is able to connect with listeners in a way that is seldom seen among MCs today. Cole’s unique abilities have led him to successful tours with Rihanna and Drake, an appearance on JAY Z’s “A Star Is Born” (Blueprint 3), as well as the covers of the Source, XXL, and being named one of BET’s “Rising Icons”.

Cole World: The Sideline Story available October 2011 in music stores nationwide only from Ivory Music & Video, the official licensee of Sony Music in the Philippines.
