The last time I blogged about our very own Pinay international singing sensation Charice was last 17 April and at that time, her “Pyramid” single was only #7 at the Billboard’s Dance Club Play chart. In the issue ending 1st of May, “Pyramid” went #1 at the Dance Club Play chart making her the very first 100% solo Filipino act to achieve such success.
While her self-titled debut album, “Charice” debuted #8 at the Billboard’s Hot 200 Albums with 43,000 copies sold in the US alone. Whew! Guess there’s no stopping Charice from making her dreams come true! Once again, I guess that’s always the good karma or good case of those who only won as runner up on reality singing competitions. So go and support Charice by purchasing a copy of her album…now na!

You’ve heard the song and seen the lyrics last time so this time get ready to get infected with Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” official music video. The version is far more clearer & better as you’ll hear a crispier sound of the melody & vocal compared to the super strong synths & bass on the actual version. I can’t stop playing again and again and again this video! And yeah, I just Danced On My Own sorta last 12 May…details of that & more soon! For the meantime, get a copy & legal download of this fantastic song on 1st June in the US and 14th June for the rest of the world!!!

When it comes to concept album, Cyndi Lauper is the master of them all. After her floor filler dance CD last 2008, Cyndi’s back with a blues album this coming 22 June, the same day when she turns 57 (but she doesn’t look like one from the above pic). The album titled, “Memphis Blues” already released the lead single “Just Your Fool” last 17 May so go and download now from iTunes!
