In today’s pop marketplace, it’s commonly accepted for an artist to take three years or longer to finish a new album, which is almost exactly how long it took Lady Gaga to get from her first full-length collection, ‘The Fame,’ to its recently released follow-up, ‘Born This Way.’
But Gaga didn’t get where she is by following what everyone else is doing, and based on comments she made during a recent call-in to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, it sounds like she’ll be back with another album sooner than anyone expected.
With sales of nearly 350,000 units, ‘Own the Night’ outpaced its competition by a wide margin, coming in at number one on the country charts, as well as Billboard’s overall Top 200 tally. As an added bonus, it also topped the album sales charts in Canada.
The more we learn about Justin Bieber‘s upcoming Christmas album, the clearer it becomes that it won’t be just another quickie cash-in holiday release. Bieber’s bringing all-new original material to the table and lining up some special guests to help him share the yuletide spirit.
Lady Antebellum struck platinum with their first album and they haven’t looked back, sending each of their first nine singles to the top 20 and selling more than five million albums in the U.S. since 2008. It’s a success story that plenty of bands would love to duplicate, to say the least.
But no matter how quickly they found their audience, or how tightly the trio might harmonize at the mic, things haven’t always been easy for Lady Antebellum behind the scenes. In fact, it wasn’t so long ago that they had to call in a third party to help them communicate.
With millions of albums sold and a growing list of hits to their name, Lady Antebellum are one of the fastest-rising young acts in the music business. As they gear up to promote their just-released third album, ‘Own the Night,’ they’re on the verge of delivering one of the biggest sales successes of 2011.
It won’t reach stores for another month, but Coldplay‘s new album, ‘Mylo Xyloto,’ is one of the most highly anticipated releases of the fall. And the band is doing a fine job of ramping up the buzz for ‘Mylo,’ releasing a pair of impeccably timed singles (‘Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall’ and ‘Paradise’) in between revealing the album artwork and track listing.
It’s been an awfully long wait between new albums for fans of No Doubt, who’ve had to make do with their old CDs and a 2009 tour to tide them over since the band last surfaced with ‘Rock Steady’ in 2001.
And that wait is about to get a little longer. The band has just dashed hopes that its next release would be in stores before the end of the year, admitting that “it’s just not ready yet.”
If you feel like those wacky ‘Glee’ kids are everywhere lately, you aren’t alone — heck, even Cory Monteith supposedly thinks they need to take it down a notch. But in between all that singing, dancing and carrying on, the show is spreading an important pro-arts message, and the latest ‘Glee’ project is backing it up with some serious cash.
‘The Voice’ hasn’t even started its second season yet, but rumors are already flying about the show’s third season — specifically, that Christina Aguilera was in danger of being fired from her position as one of the competition’s coaches.
Xtina fans can breathe a sigh of relief, however because a network spokesperson has refuted the rumors, and it sounds like her chair at the judge’s table is safe.
‘American Idol’ duo Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina have been dogged by rumors of romance for months — to the point where their fans have given the alleged couple their own mashed-up nickname, McLaina.
Anyone hoping for a public confession of love can stop hoping, however. Although both of them have winked and played along with the rumors, both McCreery and Alaina have come out to officially lay them to rest.
