Justin Timberlake

The ever so adorable Timberlake is expected to release an album entitled “The 20/20 Experience” sometime this year.

If Timberlake’s most recent single is any indicator of what we can expect from his newest album, then we all have the right to panic. Yes, he is a hip-hop icon, but after taking time off to “focus on his acting career,” it’s safe to question whether or not he is ready for a return.

My prediction is that he will have a handful of summer songs that will have us dancing all night long. He won’t blow our minds, but we’ll be thoroughly entertained. And he will still be just as cute as he was in NSYNC.


The almighty Cher is back. As if Burlesque wasn’t enough, she’s expceted to drop a full album this March. All the boys are in a tizzy.

I want nothing more than to see this living legend succeed yet again. However, “I Am Dancing Solo in the Club” is probably a bit of a stretch. Does Cher really still go clubbing? That being said, I think the song, while dated, is a lot of fun. I would have liked to see a more modern beat, but she is hardly a modern pop star.

My prediction is that this will be the best workout album of the year. It’ll be perfect for cardio kicks and calf raises, and other good old-fashioned aerobics exercises.

The Backstreet Boys

The rumor is true…the boys are back!

After the boys became men they seemed to fade away, and that was probably for the best. However, who would turn down a cash grab? The New Kids on the Block comeback album was terrible, and this will also probably be nothing short of disaster. That being said, you couldn’t possibly hold me back from their concert and sneaking my way backstage.

David Bowie

The rock legend recorded his new album in secret, which came as a surprise to the music world. He is, after all, Ziggy Stardust and the Man Who Sold the World. And his new single is not half-bad. However, 66 is a solid 100 in rock star years, and his voice has seen better days. The song is sung simply and without much effort, yet still quite moving. My prediction is that the album will not blow anyone away and it may not even see radio play, but it will be an excellent opportunity to close this chapter of his career.

The album is expected to be released March 12th and will be called The Next Day…very fitting, if you ask me.


For all you metal heads, it’s been confirmed that this talented group of boys are in the studio and will be releasing an album in 2013. Also, we can look forward to them going back on tour and rocking down the house with all the heavy metal hits from my father’s generation.

Prediction: It will be just a little bit better then the more recent GNR release, but people will buy it purely out of curiosity.

Here is their most recent song, released in 2008.
