MARY J BLIGE has just released a new album – ‘Good Morning Gorgeous’. It’s the singer’s 15th  studio album and her first for 5 years. Guests on the album include Usher who duets with Blige on ‘Need Love’.

It’s also been 5 years since JOSS STONE released a new long player. So her just-out ‘Never Forget My Love’ is a welcome return. The album has been produced by that veteran soul man (he writes with considerable irony!) Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics. ‘Never Forget My Love’ is released on Stewart’s own Bay Street Records.

Single-wise, JENNIFER HOLLIDAY  has just released a new song – ‘So In Love’. Yes, it’s a romantic ballad released on Valentine’s Day … ah sweet!
