Not a blockbuster week for new releases but 2 of my old favorites are back. Yes ladies this is not a typo Richard is back!

1.) Richard Marx: “Beautiful Goodbye” (his first album of all-new material in 10 years) O.K. where was I Ten years ago when he put his last album out? When you think of classics form the '80's Richard Marx is at the top of the list....those songs ....that hair. Amazing! The couple of songs I have heard are his trademark ballads but he sounds great and by the video below he has stayed in good shape too.

2.) Maxi Priest : “Easy to Love” (guests: Sly & Robbie, Shabba Ranks, Beres Hammond) I love Maxi Priest and still jam out to "I Wanna Be Close To You" great c.d. to pick up for your summer parties or pop it in in February and escape to the Islands!

3.) Sia :“1000 Forms of Fear” : Sia has said she refuses to be photographed anymore and If she has to have pictures taken she will be wearing a blond wig. The video for her new single chandelier already has  50 million views on YouTube, so keeping your privacy may continue to be an issue!
