CHART REFLECTION. We’re excited about tonight’s launch of Tunigo.com! It’s an excellent idea as the site will feature the latest music news immediately linking it to the vast library at Spotify. With more than 13 million songs at your fingertips, even a music site needs guidance to keep track on what’s new.
WelcheMusic will definitely keep a close eye on this site! The breaking artist Armand Mirpour will also perform tonight. Make sure to check out his hit “I Am a Volcano” which sounds like Brit-pop at its best.

2010 CHART REWIND. 18-year old Alexis Jordan certainly got her revenge. Following her elimination on America’s Got Talent in 2006, Jordan did everything but to give up. The singer attracted million of viewers via YouTube, where she put up covers of hit songs. She was subsequently signed to Jay-Z’s record label StarRoc/Roc Nation.
Her debut single “Happiness” was issued in September this year. Produced by the incredibly successful Norwegian team Stargate, the track made it all the way to the top of the Dance Club and Dance Airplay charts Stateside. To date, the track earned its biggest success in the UK where it peaked at No.3 in November. Unfortunately, the track hasn’t been issued in Sweden and is not available on Spotify.
“Happiness” samples Canadian producer’s DeadMau5’s “Brazil (2nd Edit)”. Do you recognize the sample below?
Expect “Good Girl” to be the follow-up single in early 2011. Jordan has also appeared on British rapper Tinchy Stryders’ track “Together” off his Third Strike set.
As WelcheMusic previously reported, Eminem took a trip to Europop lane as he interpolated Haddaway’s “What Is Love?” on “No Love.” The song has already reached No.23 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was issued in the UK on Nov.8. We’ve already covered the upcoming duet with Rihanna (the second part of “Love the Way You Lie”), to be featured on the singer’s new album.

On Oct.6, Grey’s Anatomy will return to Swedish TV screens for a complete new season. The ABC TV show has already premiered in the States. A trailer is currently showcased on cable network Kanal 5 and the TV campaign is also part of Sony Music’s promotional efforts for Manchester duo Hurts. The group debuted with the single “Better than Love” before the summer.
The track was primarily a hit on the clubs, while radio picked up “Wonderful Life.” The video has currently tracked 4m views on YouTube. “Stay” will be issued commercially later this year but is already picking up a lot of interest due to it being the soundtrack to the Grey’s promo trailer. It is already the second most played Hurts track on Spotify. Hurts also performed at the Propaganda festival this August and will return to Debaser Medis Stockholm this October.
