JONES RECORDING DEBUT LP, SHAREEFA BUSY ON HER SOPHOMORE
Def Jam recording artist Steph Jones is currently working on his debut album, “Mr. Ordinary”, and we can expect it sometime this year if not early 2008. He also has a remix coming up soon with label-mate Shareefa called “Ms. Incredible”, so keep an eye on that! Expect productions on “Mr. Ordinary” from Ryan “Alias” Tedder, who’s also belthing out hits on the next discs by Jennifer Lopez (Sony Music) and Leona Lewis (J Records).
While we’re on the topic of Shareefa, she recently revealed in an interview with MCP that her sophomore album is called “The Black Dahlia”, and it will be released in February 2008. Among the producers she’s currently working with are Kwame (Janet Jackson, Christina Aguilera) and Dre & Vidal (Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey).

MADONNA GOES LA LA WITH TIMBO
In a recent interview with MTV, mega producer Tim “Timbaland” Mosley gushed about one of the songs he did with Madonna called “La La”, and here’s what he had to say about it: -
"We taking it back to 'You must be my luck-eee starrrr!' ... Remember 'Ugly' by Bubba Sparxxx? I got a beat similar to that. The hook is no words. It's saying stuff named after coffee — all these different names for coffee — is the hook”
The material girl’s as-yet untitled album is due later this year via Maverick Records. Expect additional productions from The Neptunes (Britney Spears, Nicole Scherzinger), Sean Garrett (Kelis, Gwen Stefani), Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean (Beyonce, Whitney Houston) and Nate “Danja” Hills (Mariah Carey, Christina Milian).

DION TAKES A CHANCE WITH DIOGUARDI
According to songwriter Kara Dioguardi's official website, "Taking Chances" will be the lead single from Celine Dion's forthcoming album due later this year via Sony Music. The track was originally recorded by Dioguardi as part of her vocal stint on Dave Stewart's group Platinum Weird. The funny thing is - I first read about them in the Thank-You notes taken from Paris Hilton's debut album, "Paris", and here's what she said:
"Thanks to Kara Dioguardi, you are talented and I want to work with on all my albums to come and good luck with your band Platinum Weird, you rock!"
Dion's yet-untitled set will also feature collaborations with R. Kelly (Chante Moore, Toni Braxton), Tim "Timbaland" Mosley (Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez) and Schaffer "Ne-Yo" Smith (Jennifer Hudson, Whitney Houston).
Fans of America's most celebrated songwriter should also look out for her work on the next albums by: -
- Britney Spears (Jive Records).
- Nicole Scherzinger (A&M Records).
- Jordin Sparks (J Records).
- Leona Lewis (J Records).
- Boniface (Virgin Records).
- Cassie (Bad Boy Records).
- Mia Rose (Next Selection).
- Samantha Jade (Jive Records).
- Jesse McCartney (Hollywood Records).
- Frankie J (Universal Records).
- Lemar (Sony Music).
- Nick Lachey (Sony Music).
Dioguardi also hooked up with R&B producers Dre & Vidal – best known for their work with Justin Timberlake ("Dick in a Box"), Alicia Keys' ("So Simple"), Destiny's Child ("T-Shirt"), Mariah Carey ("Clown") and Amerie ("Just Like Me"). Can't wait to see how this match made in heaven will work out :)
