Would You Sacrifice it all for me?

Quick update:

Quite a few of you were writing in to me asking if the news was true that my beloved Jada had collaborated with my other beloved four-letter J artist from Boston, JoJo, on a song for their upcoming debut album. Apparently this "news" was posted on Jada's wikipedia page. So -- unfortunately, I can tell you straight that this is nothing but a false rumor. Jada and JoJo both call the same place home (Boston, MA), and have met a few times, but that's as far as it has gone. I have to say, though -- how hot would that track be?

(Also - FYI - my interview with the girls should be coming very soon. Keep a weather eye out.)

They have, however, collaborated with Mr. Akon (and RedOne) for their Gaga-ish first single, "American Cowboy". Check out this pic of the girls with him from a concert in their hometown last month.

Retail numbers for last week are starting to filter in, and its looking like Dave Matthews Band will be kicking Eminem out of the #1 position for this week. Their new record, Big Whiskey & the Groogrux King, already has a sizeable lead of more than 60K over Eminem's Relapse, which is reporting just over 70K -- with just 50% of the recipts in.

You also might want to know that Mitchel Musso's selftitled debut album is looking at a Top 20 debut if sales keep coming his way. He's currently sitting at #19 with just over 11K. Check out my review of the album here.
