Brandy had an amazing 2012, and to show some love to her starz, the R&B diva liberated a new, unreleased track, “How High.” The mid-tempo cut even features a verse from her rap alter-ego Bran’Nu. There will be more to come from her great album Two Eleven in the new year, so stay tuned. Follow the jump to stream and download “How High” now! Down
Birmingham's very own Jamelia showed off her general knowledge and helped to raise $35,200 (£22,000) for a charity during an appearance on a festive Tv quiz. The Superstar hitmaker joined actor Craig Charles, funnyman Dom Joly, and journalist Lorraine Kelly to pit her wits against a trivia expert on a celebrity special edition of The Chase. Jamelia outwitted her opponent to win $4,800 (£3,000) for the team's pot, and they went on to triumph overall, scooping $17,600 (£11,000) - which was doubled to $35,200 by the US show's producers. The money was donated to Text Santa, which helps to support British charities during the festive season.

After breaking her partnership with Kelly, Aaliyah released 1996's superior follow-up, One In A Million, on which she worked with hotshot producer Timbaland. Soundtrack work followed, with contributions to Anastasia ("Journey To The Past") and Dr. Dolittle ("Are You That Somebody?"). Aaliyah also began filming on her screen debut in Andrzej Bartkowiak's Romeo Must Die. "Try Again", taken from the movie soundtrack, went to the top of the US singles chart in June 2000. The following year's self-titled third album demonstrated a new maturity and confidence, with Aaliyah publicly bidding farewell to her teenage years and fashioning a bold new sound with collaborator Timbaland.
Tragedy struck in August 2001 when, after filming a video in the Bahamas, Aaliyah and various members of her record company attempted to fly home. The small light aircraft crashed killing Aaliyah and her entourage. Her third album posthumously climbed to the number 1 position in America, while in the UK "More Than A Woman" reached the top of the singles chart in January 2002.
A final sad note to 2012
The last ten days of December have been the most shocking for a quite a few years with singer loses of; Linda Howard (group: High Inergy) 17th, Terry Huff 19th, Jimmy McCrackin 20th, Marva Whitney 22nd. and now Fontella Bass 26th. All gave us much musical pleasure - RIP
PS - Happy New Year to all my listeners
