Adele's SO Successful, Radio Plays Unofficial 21 Singles!

adele-more-hits-21.jpg

Dayuum! There just isn't enough Adele to satisfy America's need!!

Now that all of 21's official singles have been released AND enjoyed an intense amount of radio play across the nation, stations are suddenly HUNGERING for the high amount of listeners that came along with Adele's dulcet tones!

SO to garner more listeners, stations are independently playing songs off the singer's sophomore album that have NOT been approved as "official" singles by Adele's record label, Columbia Records.

Fast and peppy track I'll Be Waiting is now 21's fifth single enjoying massive airplay, but it is NOT a song Columbia ever planned to promote.

Lisa Sonkin, Columbia VP of triple A and public radio promotion recently stated:

Filed under: Music MinuteBeyonce

beyonce-4-album-sales__opt1.jpg

This is good news for Beyonce. It means her people are behind her no matter. Security is the last thing most aritsts have this industry.

We considered Beyonce's inital sale numbers for 4 disappointing, but apparently, her label doesn't agree with us. Ron Stringer, Columbia/Epic Label Group's Chairman, exclaimed that the label is nothing but thrilled by the way the album has performed so far. In fact, he calls the sales "vindication" against those who said she was poised to fail. He explains:

Columbia Prepares For Beyoncé's 4 To Flop…By Reuniting Destiny's Child?!

columbia-records-thinks-beyonce-4-will-flop-want-destinys-child-reunion

Uh-oh! They're already doing damage control!

Columbia Records is reportedly concerned with Beyoncé, because her latest album, 4, isn't as commercial and radio-friendly as they'd like it to be, and she's refused to make any alterations or record new material!

And apparently, they think that the solution to rejuvenating her career is to reunite Destiny's Child!

Spielberg's Smash & Lead Katharine McPhee Land Record Deals

smash-katharine-mcphee-record-deal.jpg

This is such a lucky break for her!

NBC has inked a deal with Columbia Records, the same label that handles all of Glee's recordings, to put out the soundtrack to their own upcoming musical venture, Smash. In addition, the show's star, Katharine McPhee, has been given her own solo recording contract.

Hmm. It's interesting that Ryan Murphy didn't try and put the same deal in place for Lea Michele when Glee started. Guess Steven Spielberg took notes and improved on RM's system!

Seriously Kat, you lucked out BIG time witht his!

Which Breakout Glee Star Will Be Recording A Solo Album This Summer?

Filed under: Music MinuteGlee

That'd be Darren Criss Naya Rivera! (Don't worry. His time will come soon enough.)

Columbia Records is going to have one busy summer. Along with finishing Beyonce's soon-to-be smash album 4,and the Dixie Chicks' reunion album (!!!!), Theresa Labarbera Whites, Senior VP of A&R at the label, confirmed this week that the Glee star, who the plays the deliciously bitchy lesbian Santana, will get to work on her debut album once the Glee tour is over. Naya's solo effort won't be the first time she's worked on an album though. She's been songwriting since she was 15 (now 24) and has been doing her thing in this biz since 1991.

In other words, she's been working her ass off since adolescence and finally, it's paying off! Woo!

What kind of music will she make, we wonder? If we're going off what we've heard of her on the show, it'll probably be something very Amy Winehouse-esque. We could be down with that.

Gleeks, are U excited Naya's making her own album? Do U think it will be on par with Mark Salling's and Matt Morrison's - or will it be better? And, where the hell is Lea Michele's album, huh???
