Diagnosis: Can someone bring a notepad n report for us please?
Rita Ora has released her single entitled "Single Most Amazing" for her ad as the new face of Cavalli and the tune might have a touch of "Purple" on it.
The original ad had just some music behind it, not Rita's.
Shortly after, a different video synched with "Single Most Amazing" came out.
Rita Orta tweeted out the link having Prince attached to the music and then 3RDEYEGIRL tweeted out the link as well.

Rita has spoken before that she has recorded with PRINCE for her upcoming album and one of the songs that Ora spoke about was "Champagne Kisses" with Prince and produced by Joshua Welton, not "Single Most Amazing". We have tried to confirm Prince's involvement with his camp but have heard nothing back but the speculation has already begun.-DocFB
Diagnosis: "Champagne Kisses" was originally entitled "U Will B" which was performed live and only existed in demo format after the live performances we are told.
R&B Legend Bobby Womack has passed away at the age of 70. His family confirmed to us that he passed away this morning. His record label XL Recordings, confirmed his passing in the past hour.
Womack just performed in the past few weeks. He was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2009.
The cause of death right now is unknown.
People wanted this to be a hoax like Ronnie James Dio, Vesta, George Duke and others. Sadly, it is not.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Our heartfelt condolences to the Womack family. Thank you Bobby for the music you have left us. Much Love...Always...
PRINCE has just released a teaser for the new song "This Could Be Us" which was inspired by a meme of Prince and Apollonia from his "Purple Rain era.
The teaser can be downloaded HERE. (updated link.)
Prince's vocals are still crisp and clear even in his falsetto.
Prince also invited The Current and Bobby Z. over to Paisley Park last night to hang out and hear new music.
You can read the Current article HERE.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Last night sounded fun. Coulda been us...but U were playin'.
Legendary music reviewer and interviewer Jon Bream was invited to Paisley Park late Saturday night in Minneapolis to listen to the new "untitled" PRINCE album. Jon Bream was handing Prince awards and accolades long before a majority of the world had a chance to. You could call Bream a Prince historian, so to speak.
Bream wrote about his experience he had late last night for the Star Tribune, also having to write a review for the Bruno Mars show he saw earlier in the night.
Bream talks about the phone call he got to be at Paisley Park around midnight to listen to the new record and how he is now on Prince time. Warner Bros executives unfortunately are not on Prince time and the music icon has had a hard time reaching them in regards to the new album and more than likely the 30th anniversary remastering of "Purple Rain" due for release sometime this year, right WB?
After 1 A.M., Bream was escorted into studio B at Paisley where the 3RDEYEGIRL members were along with their spouses including the producer of the new Prince record, Joshua Welton who Prince described as a rising producer. His tour manager and a Fox 9 reporter were there as well.
King has released new music this morning in the guise of "Mr. Chameleon" which is due for a full song release on July 1st!
They are due to perform at the ESSENCE Festival in 2 weeks!-DocFB
Diagnosis: I ran into KING a couple of weeks ago for a hot second. Wish we were able to talk more about future projects. See U in a future Spreecast for sure!
Lana Del Rey has released a new video for her single "Shades Of Cool" from her new album "Ultraviolence" released this week!
We hear the new album is kind of depressing but at least this song has life.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Ultraviolence is on pace to sell 175,000-200,000 and still may not be enough for number 1. Remember when NSYNC could sell 2 million in a week? Yea, those days are gone.
Carmen Electra has invested a lot of time lately for what her famous in the first place: music. She has released an ode to "Pulp Fiction" video for her song "Werq".
"Werq" is the follow-up to Carmen's single last year "We Like It Loud".
Carmen really doesn't need to "Werq" it that much...but we like it when she do!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Still the scariest woman on the planet.....
