First Listen: Only You - Cee Lo Green feat. Lauriana Mae

 Cee Lo Green has premiered a brand new track titled "Only You", featuring newcomer Lauriana Mae and it is really good!

The song has a very addictive chorus and some cool fusion of classic and modern RnB rhythms.

“It’s about two people on different paths, hoping for the best, hoping that those paths lead to each other,” Cee Lo says. “It’s like love lost or the acknowledgment of a love lost, but it’s still optimistic.”

It is still unknown when is Green planning release a new studio album, but this new track has surely began some buzz.

Listen to "Only You" below!

J.J Abrams Confirmed as Director for "Star Wars: Episode 7"

  After many days of rumours, Lucasfilm has finally confirmed the news that J.J Abrams, the man behind films such as Super 8, Star Trek or Mission Impossible has been chosen as the director for the next chapter of Star Wars.

The official statement reads as follows:

J.J. Abrams will direct Star Wars: Episode VII, the first of a new series of Star Wars films to come from Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy. Abrams will be directing and Academy Award-winning writer Michael Arndt will write the screenplay.
“It’s very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new Star Wars movie,” said Kennedy. “J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. He understands the essence of the Star Wars experience, and will bring that talent to create an unforgettable motion picture.”

 George Lucas went on to say “I’ve consistently been impressed with J.J. as a filmmaker and storyteller.  He’s an ideal choice to direct the new Star Wars film and the legacy couldn’t be in better hands.”

 “To be a part of the next chapter of the Star Wars saga, to collaborate with Kathy Kennedy and this remarkable group of people, is an absolute honor,” J.J. Abrams said. “I may be even more grateful to George Lucas now than I was as a kid.”

Are you guys happy with the choice? Let the debate begin!
