Music News Bytes: Here Comes Cher; New Music for Tuesday; 'Blurred Lines' Reaches #1

Music News Bytes is a collection of short news items that I follow on the Web. If you're into the same type of music I am, that is pop, dance, R&B, and such, check it out...


Here Comes Cher...

Okay, this has already been circulating for awhile, but I have to include this in my News Bytes.  Attention Cher fans, if you don't already know by now, you need to set your DVR's for tomorrow night's season finale of The Voice.  That's when the icon makes her first television appearance in 10 years as she performs the debut single from her forthcoming all new studio album due out in September.   In the meantime, check out Jason Nevins' remix of Woman's World:

Tuesday, June 18th: Cher to Perform at NYC's Pride Dance on the Pier

Oh, if I had waited only a few hours to complete this post!  Announced just this morning, Cher will be appearing at NYC's end of Pride Week celebration, Dance on the Pier, Sunday, June 30th.  Also appearing at the big dance is 90's dance diva Deborah Cox, which makes this an even greater how!  This is BIG!!!!

New Music Tuesday

In conjunction with Cher's The Voice appearance, the new single will be available for sale on iTunes, Amazon and other outlets on Tuesday the 18th of June, at the same time the new record album also goes pre-sale.   Kelly Rowland also will be releasing her newest, the singer's 4th studio album called Talk a Good Game, and it will feature appearances by her former Destiny's Child buds Beyonce and Michelle Williams. Her last album, Here I Am produced some very good tunes, including the seductive Motivation and the sweet Lay It On Me, so I'm definitely looking forward to this one.  And if ya haven't heard, Macklemore and Ray Lewis have a new one out, dedicated to all the Stay at Home Dad's out there.  Check it out on Rap-Up. Love these guys!

'Blurred Lines' Becomes Robin Thicke's First #1

I wrote on Facebook the other day that Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines was the best Prince song he never sang, and it is.  The song's got that retro Prince funky vibe and is oooh so nice, so much so that Billboard reports it as their #1 song for the week, the singer's first. Sweet!  Check it out on my Song of the Day for  Saturday, June 8th.
