In Case You Haven’t Heard …

A Quick Serving of News and Gossip from the Music Biz

Promotion on the part of Janet Jackson’s record label, Island, for her latest disc, Discipline, has apparently come to a halt. Jackson was recently asked what her next single would be and revealed that the label did not appear to have any further interest in the project, which, it’s interesting to note, is one of the reasons why she left Virgin a few years ago after she claimed that label failed to promote 2004’s Damita Jo and 2006’s 20 Y.O.

Experiencing the complete opposite are: Solange, whose new single “I Decided” is starting to impact radio; Nikka Costa, who will make a long-awaited return with her album Pebble to a Pearl, which is slated for release in September; UNKLE, who is in the studio, collaborating with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, White Denim and Black Mountain; Marc Anthony, who is preparing three separate solo albums for release before year’s end; Girl Talk, whose new 55-minute mix will be available on his Web site before being released in hard-copy format; David Archuleta, who just signed with American Idol rival David Cook’s label, 19 Records; Hayden Panettiere, whose single “Wake Up Call” will be featured in ads for Candies clothing as well as on her debut album scheduled for release later this year; Britney Spears, who will be in London directing and filming her video for her next single, “Radar,” as well as making a brief cameo in the Pussycat Dolls’ video for “When I Grow Up”; and T-Pain, whose newly active digital label announced several new acts, projects and releases.

A track featuring Kylie Minogue was apparently classified as “too sexy” for Coldplay’s recent release, Viva La Vida, and was snubbed from the set, though the track is scheduled to be included on the group’s next LP set for 2009. Mel B. is set to star in a Broadway version of Legally Blonde and will debut her new clothing line in an upcoming season of Project Runway. Readers can complement Mel B.’s fashions with new fragrances courtesy of Avril Lavigne, who is working with Procter and Gamble to create the scents.
