MUSIC BOX: Misha B's New Single 'Here's To Everything (Ooh La La)', Plus Introducing Tiny Dancer And Valentiine

Posted: Updated:

It's a great week for girl power...

Misha B

Don't you just love a former 'X Factor' contestant who gets it right?

Misha B was a semi-finalist in the 2011 series - and her new single 'Here's To Everything (Ooh La La)' is probably the closest the UK is going to get to a Nicki Minaj hit at the moment.

Out on 28 April, the upbeat song is a toast to, well, everything. Infused with reggae pop and with a drum and bass influenced beat, the song samples the Teena Marie hook “Ooh la la la”, made famous by the Fugees' 'Fu-gee-la', in the nineties. It's perfect happy music.

Following on from hit singles 'Home Run' and 'Do You Think Of Me', Misha B's debut album - which includes a track co-written with Emeli Sandé - is due summer 2013.

Tiny Dancer

Google Tiny Dancer and you'll get an Elton John song - but there's one little lady who is hoping you'll soon know it as her name instead.

Tiny's (don't confuse her with Tinie Tempah) debut song 'Who Am I' can hopefully sort out this identity crisis.

The 18-year-old, described by her publicity team as "halfway between a conceptual art project and a brawl at a fancy dress party", certainly leaves an impression...

My first thought when watching her video for 'Who Am I' was 'Oh look, it's another wannabe Kate Bush who needs to ditch the Madonna-style leotard'. But that's not to take away any merit from the colourful pop she's created along with the help of Wayne Wilkins, the multiple award-winning writer and producer behind hits for the likes of Beyonce and Cheryl Cole, who took Tiny under his wing in 2012.

Check out Tiny Dancer's debut single below. If you like it, her debut EP ‘Who Am I’ is out this May

Valentiine

On the other end of the spectrum, if you're sick of bright and colourful pop, three piece all-girl garage rock band Valentiine are worth a listen.

The band, who hail from Melbourne, Australia and who sound like they're out of the heavy '90s, are preparing to release 'Love Like' as their debut UK single on 8 April.

Take a listen below to what Australia's Beat Magazine described as "proper, raw, gruelling femme-rock"...
