GIG REVIEW: Cleo Sol At YoYo

Last Thursday night saw UK songstress Cleo Sol grace the stage of the Notting Hill Arts Club as she headlined the venue's weekly event YoYo in support of her forthcoming single, 'High'.

The stage was opened by Birmingham rapper, Lady Leshurr, who performed 4 songs including Chris Brown's 'Look At Me Now' and her new single '#LEGO'. Seeming somewhat deenergised, Leshurr let the crowd know that she felt that this was her worst performance as she was sick and had hardly any space to move around on the stage.

Shortly after Leshurr's departure, Cleo took to the stage looking absolutely stunning in a pair of black high-waisted shorts with a matching crop top and waistcoat. Performing with a live band, the singer worked the crowd as she effortlessly delivered tracks, such as 'Free My Mind' and new single 'High', impressing the entire audience with the strength of her vocals.

The only negative for the night was that Cleo wasn't on stage for longer! 4 tracks for a headlining performance was a bit disappointing.

Other than that, a really enjoyable night!

Cleo's new single, 'High', is due out for release on September 25th. Preorder it on iTunes now!

NEWS: Lowdown On Ray J/Fabolous Beef [AUDIO]

For the small minority that didn't already know, apparently the Mayweather vs. Ortiz fight wasn't the only brawl going down in Las Vegas last weekend.

After HBO played a clip of the R'n'B singer, Ray J, performing 'One Wish' at a party thrown by Floyd Mayweather, Fabolous tweeted: “Nah but Floyd saying we havin a concert in my living room & the camera cuts to Ray J singing ‘One Wish’ on the piano had me in tears!!”, after seeing the clip aired on the televison.

The tweet may have flustered Ray J, as when he saw the rapper in Vegas over the weekend, he confronted him at Diddy’s post-fight dinner, as well as running into each other again at the Palms Casino, where Fab was scheduled to perform.

This was then followed by a heated call-in from Ray J into Power 105.1's The Breakfast Show yesterday morning, where he describes a certain scuffle that ended up in the police detaining the singer over night. Have a listen to what Ray J has to say:

After hearing the singer's phone-in, a much calmer Fabolous called into DJ Clue's Power 105.1's show later that afternoon, revealing his side of the story and how Ray J may have been under a drug influence:

What are your thoughts on the beef? Is it just a misunderstanding or something thrown out of proportion? Leave us your comments.
