New Rihanna? Go on then. (full song - 'Bubble Pop')

This 'Rated R' thing is shaping up to be pretty phenomenal isn't it?  Even though ScopiSat is a bit underwhelmed with the lead off single there is something to say for doing a 'soft landing' for such a highly anticipated project.  The public doesn't want to be hit over the head with an act as huge as Rihanna, and if something like 'Bubble Pop' was the first single there could very well be some heads shaking.  It's definitely a different direction but we are definitely loving it.  It's not confirmed as being on Rated R, but our guess it will show up at least as a b-side eventually.  Here's the collaboration for your listening pleasure:

Chart Chat UK: Nov 1, 2009

Somewhat of a surprise at the top, as Cheryl Cole repeats, relegating Westlife's new track, 'What About Now,' to number 2. Jay Sean debuts at 3, with Alexandra Burke at 4. Michael Buble leaps up 4 places to 5 with 'Haven't Met You Yet.' The next new entry is down at 11, with Miley Cyrus' 'Party In The USA' finally getting its British debut and matching the peak of her previous two highest charting singles 'See You Again' and 'The Climb.' It must be frustrating for the young singer to have just missed having a top ten hit three separate times now. The single was fully physically released this past week, so there is little hope of the song rising any higher. Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance,' the lead track off of her repackaged 'The Fame Monster' album clocks in at 14, and without a video or any real promotion it's completely up in the air where this one goes from here. The rest of this week's chart is pretty lackluster and Xtra Factor is on so that's all for now.

The UK Top Ten:
1 - Fight For This Love: Cheryl Cole
2 - What About Now: Westlife
3 - Down - Jay Sean
4 - Bad Boys: Alexandra Burke
5 - Haven't Met You Yet: Michael Buble
6 - Meet Me Halfway: Black Eyed Peas
7 - Oopsy Daisy: Chipmunk
8 - Million Dollar Bill: Whitney Houston
9 - Bodies: Robbie Williams
10- Black Eyed Peas: I Gotta Feeling

Stefanie Heinzmann is ‘Unbreakable’ - watch the video now

Stefanie Heinzmann is a Swiss soul singer who reminds us a lot of Joss Stone but without the smarmy attitude and shoelessness. She puts out some nice pop tunes, and though new single 'Unbreakable' isn't going to change the world, it comes with one of our favorite videos in a long time. Things start out all Pottery Barn and end up in the best food fight ever. It really is a sight to watch in HD.
