Simon Cowell protege Leona Lewis hits the US with Spirit and, fresh off of the Spice Girls tour, Mel C releases another solo album. Kidzworld has the reviews.

Leona Lewis and Mel C are hitting stores with new albums this week. Kidzworld has the reviews!

Leona Lewis :: Spirit

Since winning Britain's X Factor competition, Leona Lewis has gone six times platinum and won awards left, right, and center. As fans in the US get their hands on her debut CD, it will only be a matter of time before Leona is a household name over here too. The star of this disc is Leona's incredible voice. She has drawn comparison to Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, and the good thing about Spirit is that it really showcases her voice. It's a straight forward album though, some ballads, a few pop tracks, nothing too edgy. The first single, Bleeding Love, was produced by Ryan Tedder of One Republic is certainly one of the best songs of the year. All things considered, Spirit is a solid, if not groundbreaking debut. Simon would probably say, "Great but a little safe."

Fun Facts

  • Spirit entered the Irish and UK Albums Charts at number one and became the fastest selling debut album of all time.
  • In the UK, Spirit sold 218,805 copies in its first week.
  • Lewis says she named the album Spirit because "it is my heart and soul and the voice within that says everything is possible."
  • Bleeding Love reached number on on the Billboard Hot 100 after six weeks, becoming the first number one hit from a British Female artist in over twenty years.

    Melanie C :: This Time

    Fresh off of the incredible Spice Girls reunion tour comes Melanie C with a new solo album. Of the Spice Girls, Mel is the only one who seems focused on music, which makes sense because she was always the best singer in the group. This Time isn't a bad album, but it's not that great either. Mel sings well; her voice has matured since the Spice Girls and so has she. Now that she has her own label, Mel seems content to keep doing the same style of Modern Pop-Rock she feels comfortable with, which isn't likely to attract many new fans, but will certainly keep her loyal following happy.

    Fun Facts

  • Melanie C released this CD from her own label, Red Girl Records.
  • Tracks "What If I Stay" and "Don't Let Me Go" are cover versions of two songs originally written and recorded by Speedway lead singer Jill Jackson for her debut solo album.
  • In Switzerland, the album was certified Gold after just three weeks of release.
  • Hot Tracks

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online.

    Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
