Coldplay has a bitter reaction to her new album though. Not that they are against her or anything but because they gave her a song which may be entitled “Scars” and they claim it’s the best song they have ever written. It could have been the best Coldplay song, they said, but because they’re no longer in cycle, they can’t sing it anymore. Coldplay said Natalie did a good job with the song and she has a very unique talent and great voice.

Eric Benet has his way with words that even the most revolting scenes can be turned into lovely melodies that you can sing in exquisite restaurants without having all customers walk out in pure disgust. Yup, that’s Eric Benet. His talent is amazing that after all these years he still makes really beautiful songs although he is an underrated singer.
At age 42, Eric Benet has experienced a lot in his life. He lost his dad, lost his ex-girlfriend who is also the mother of his daughter. Eric also had a divorce with ex-wife Hollywood superstar Halle Berry because of his infidelity. He is a sex-addict and the song “The Hunger” will prove just that. The song is really talking about lovemaking but when you listen to it, it sounds really good but when you read the listen then, oh boy, you’d feel the heat!
Ciara‘s new single is entitled “Never, Ever” this month and it was written by Ciara herself and Elvis Williams. The producer for this track is Polow Da Don who was also the producer for Ciara’s popular single “Promise” back in 2006.
Ciara wanted to get the groove on with the music lovers so she could pave the way for her upcoming album which is entitled “Fantasy Ride”. On this song, Ciara also featured Young Jeezy.
Ciara had a single with T-Pain entitled Go-Girl and with her high hopes, unfortunately that single failed to hit the charts. The song did not catch the listener’s attention and didn’t create enough Buzz.
Never, Ever is a song that can get your groove on. Just listen to the beat and you might end up dancing and singing along. Part of the lyrics is just taken from a Classic song that everybody’s for sure familiar with. Unfortunately, this song isn’t really all that good.
