Former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt's new video is 'Candy'-tastic - watch now!

Kimberly Wyatt, pictured here at a busted weave competition, left the Pussycat Dolls back when they were actually relevant, and has since done....nothing.  Her publicist would have you believe that's all set to change this year, though, as Ms. Wyatt is prepping to release her debut solo album, and leads what will probably be a half-assed media blitz (we're looking at you, 'The Bonnie Hunt Show') with new track 'Candy.'  It's not really HER song, but after essentially being Nicole Scherzinger's backup dancer for a few years, Kim is more than used to playing second fiddle.  The main artist is actually something called Agros Santos and we can't be bothered to look up anymore about him so that's all we're going to say about that.

In any case it's a catchily addictive, if a little repetitive, dance floor filler that ticks all the boxes without ever really blowing your socks off. 

A nice 7/10.  Bring on the album, Kim.

Janelle Monae walks the 'Tightrope' in a great new video - watch the premiere now!

Janelle Monae is a Grammy nominated singer that no one has ever heard of.  She made a few waves (and some awards noise) with her debut EP back in '07, but hasn't done a whole lot since.  Now Miss Monae is gearing up for a full on album attack, with her LP 'The Arch Android' slated for a May 18 release, and the lead single is what we like to call VERY GOOD.  It's a bit Outkast-y, which is unsurprising as it features Big Boi, but isn't as annoying as we found much of their stuff.   The video, for its part, is pretty much what 'Shutter Island' should have been.  Seriously.   

'The Arch Android' is out May 18 on Bad Boy Records
