It seems as though there is a small glimmer of hope for the world of Pop. Two major labels are feeling frustrated with their divas (Jive/Britney) and (Sony BMG/J-Lo). Jive can’t get Brit-Brit to promote her new album. And it’s costing Sony/BMG more moola than it’s worth to keep Lopez happy while she’s promoting hers.
Factor in losing those high-end artists to internet deals (like Madonna) and maybe, just maybe the labels will start to nurture some young talent. I know that’s asking a lot, but something’s gotta give.
One person who has seen the light is pop-God, Robbie Williams. It’s been rumored for a few months that we would finally see Robbie patch things up with former collaborator, Guy Chambers, and make some more great music. With a talk from Kylie (and maybe a touch of pixie dust), the two seem to have put the past behind them. I cannot wait for some new Williams/Chambers-pennned tunes!
