Who the F**k Is Justin Bieber"[edit]

"Who the F**k Is Justin Bieber"
Single by Charleston Clubbers
Released 12 June 2013 (Scandinavian countries)
Format Digital download
Recorded 2013
Genre Dance
Label YeahYeah
Warner Music / U&i

"Who the F**k Is Justin Bieber" is a 2013 single by Charleston Clubbers released on 12 June 2013 on YeahYeah, their first charting single and distributed via Warner Music. Although the single passes the "fuck" comment uncensored, the cover of the official release represents the word as "f**k". The track contains the catch phrase "Who the fuck is Justin Bieber?" from Ozzy Osbourne.

Context The single samples the quotation by Ozzy Osbourne who in appeared on Fuse television channel's show A Different Spin in 2010 and made that comment. The artist Mark Hoppus, the host of the show, was asking what music Osbourne listens to. Osbourne initially replied: "I don't listen to new metal bands... If you ask me, give me the top ten of the good new metal bands... One of the dangers of that is, if you start to like it... If something gets into my head, it will come out my mouth you know...", to which Hoppus retorted : "So you listen a lot to Justin Bieber then?" to which Osbourne replied "Who?" and Hoppus insisted "Justin Bieber", to which Osbourne responded: "Who the fuck is Justin Bieber?".[11][12] Hoppus commented back: "I like that answer. That's perfect".

Reception Music critics have resembled the sampling to the hit "We No Speak Americano" by Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP.[13] with similar style of using the saxophone and bass.

Chart position The single was initially released only in the Scandinavian countries and in its first week of released entered at number 31 on Tracklisten, the official Danish Singles Chart.

Slaï[edit]

Slaï
Birth name Patrice Sylvestre
Born (1973-02-10) 10 February 1973 (age 45)
Val-d'Oise France
Genres Caribbean music, Tropical
Years active 1998–present

Patrice Sylvestre better known by his stage name Slaï (born Val-d'Oise, France on 10 February 1973) is a French singer of Guadeloupe origin

Sylvestre, born in France, actually passed his childhood and adolescence in Guadeloupe until 1996, when he returned to France. Interested in music early on, he release "Flamme" in 1998 that became a huge success in the Caribbean region and earned him a great following. He released his debut album Fresh in 1998 and the follow-up album, the self-titled Slaï in 2002 in local Caribbean markets. The releases were also known in Caribbean immigrant circles in France.

Slaï's fame crossed over to French mainstream as radio stations picked up on his repertoire of tropical songs as the genre gained more popularity in France and the genre being used in many mainstream French songs. As a result, Slaï decided to release his "Flamme" after many years of its original release in France, the single reaching number 4 on SNEP, the official French Singles Chart. Coinciding with the belated single, and with increased interest in tropical sounds, was his second album Florilège that reached 14 in the French albums and was certified double gold. Follow-up singles included "La dernière danse (ne rentre pas chez toi ce soir)" reaching number 9. In 2008, Slaï released Caraïbes that cracked the Top 10 in France.

In popular culture In the French 2013 tribute album dedicated to tropical sounds that had been popular with the French public, the collective chose to include Slaï's famous hit "Flamme" as one of the definitive tropical songs of the period. It was included in the repertoire of songs on the 12-track album Tropical Family. "Flamme" was interpreted by Axel Tony and Layanah on the album.

Slaï himself took part however in two other tribute tracks on the same album. They are "Les Poèmes de Michelle", a Teri Moïse song which Slaï did in solo. On a second track, the song "Il jouait du piano debout" from France Gall, Slaï performed it as a duo with Mélissa Nkonda.

Fanny Jacques-André-Coquin better known as Fanny J (born in Cayenne in French Guiana on 6 October 1987) is a French singer of zouk and contemporary R&B.

Career She started very early in music taking part in various local music competitions in Guiana like Révélation Podium and Podium Inter-Lycées de Guyane and very early on adopted the zouk genre of music. During one of the competitions, she met Warren, a well-known songwriter and producer who offered the song "On t'a zappé" for her. In 2006, she moved to Limoges, France for her studies, but continued her musical aspirations preparing for an album.

In 2007, Warren wrote "Ancrée à ton port" for her. She released her debut album Vous les Hommes in 2007 on Section Zouk record label with 16 tracks in a number of languages. Warner Music picked on that and signed her reissuing the album with two additional tracks. She adopted the name Fanny J for the Warner Music reissue. The label also coupled her with French-Malian rapper Mokobé for a revamped remixed single for "Ancrée à ton port" that became one of the definitive zouk hits of 2007. "Ancrée à ton port" reached number 12 on SNEP, the official French Singles Chart. Other popular tracks included "Je l'aime" and "Sé taw". In 2009, she returned for a big concert in her birthplace French Guiana. The album was also promoted all over Europe, some African countries and the United States.

She came back in 2010, with her second album Secrets de Femme also arranged by Warren and produced by Harold Singamalon. She cooperated with Nickenson Prud'Homme in "Lè ou jwenn lanmou" and with Swedish producer Million Stylez in "Me and You" and "Okay" with rapper Black Kent. The latter accompanied with a music video was the first single from the album, that contained 20 tracks, including 16 newly written materials. Other collaborations include Admiral T, Krys and Slaï. She toured with a number of concerts and notably at the Zénith de Paris on 26 December 2010.

In 2010, she was featured in the French version of Jason Derulo's hit "Whatcha Say".

In 2012, Fanny J left Section Zouk label. Together with Warren, they formed UM Music label that has signed zouk artists Thayna and Axelle Benth. Preparing a new album, she came back with a concert at the Paris Olympia on 7 April 2012.

In 2013, she was featured for the main release from Tropical Family, a tribute album of a French collective for tropical music in the single "Maldòn" originally from Zouk Machine. The new recording also featured Lynnsha and Louisy Joseph.

Ahmedu Augustine Obiabo (born in Ogwule, Agatu Local Government Area, Benue State, Nigeria)[14] known by his stage name Blackface Naija or just Blackface is a Nigerian dancehall, ragga and reggae singer and songwriter. He is best known as co-writer of "African Queen" with 2face Idibia, a song made famous by the latter after it appeared on his debut solo album Face 2 Face in 2004 to become an international hit.

In Plantashun Boyz

Blackface was a founding member of the Nigerian band Plantashun Boyz that he formed in 2000 with Tuface (also known as 2face Idibia) and musician Chibuzor Oji (better known as Faze). Blackface and Tuface had met in 1996 when they were studying at the Institute of Management Technology (IMT) in Enugu. Faze joined a brief while later.

The band released two successful albums Body and Soul in 2000 and Sold Out in 2003. The band broke up in 2004, to be briefly reunited in 2007 for just one more album Plan B.

Although he kept sustainable relations with Faze, his rift with Tuface (2face Idibia) widened, particularly over the rights to the song "African Queen".[15][16]

Solo career After the Plantashun Boiz split up in 2004, Scarface led a solo musical career. He released the hip hop album Ghetto Child in May 2007 collaborating with a number of artists. The album contains "Hard Life" featuring Alabai as the first single. He also recorded a full album for his crew D Tribunal called What We Are.

After Ghetto Child, he released Evergreen, Jungle Fever, Me, Musiq and I, Dancehall Business and the prospective Defender.[15] In 2013, he made a collaborative album 200 with Maine Eazz.

Personal life Blackface was married with Dayo for eight years and has two children, Caroline and Alex. The couple agreed to separate pending divorce procedures.[17][18]

Carlos Emmanuel Olivero better known as Carlito Olivero (born in Chicago, Illinois, 1989) is an American singer and actor of mixed Puerto Rican-Mexican origin. He sings in English and Spanish. From 2007 to 2009, he was part of the Latin boy band Menudo after taking part in MTV's Making Menudo. Moving to Los Angeles in 2009, he appeared various singing and acting events and in 2012 appeared in the film We the Party. In 2013, he auditioned for season 3 of the American singing competition series The X Factor and is in the Top 40, one of ten in the "Boys" category mentored by Paulina Rubio.

Beginnings He was born and raised in Chicago to a father of Puerto Rican origin and a mother from Mexico. He started very early ever since his parents bought him a karaoke machine and he started singing to its tunes. His father and some of his uncles and aunts were break dancers. From grade one onwards, he started taking part in competitions singing mainly Elvis Presley, 'NSYNC and B2K songs.

In Making Menudo (2007)

2007-2009 lineup. L-to-R: José Bordonada Collazo, Monti Montañez, Emmanuel Vélez Pagan, Carlos Olivero, Chris Moy

In 2007, Adrian Carlos Olivares took part in an MTV reality series titled Making Menudo to earn a spot in the reconfigured famous Latin boy band. Ricky Martin and Draco Rosa were two of many who rotated through the band over the years. Making Menudo launched as a primetime series on October 25, 2007, but was later pushed to afternoons due to low ratings.[26]

The initial Menudo five chosen in the program (JC, Jorge, Monti, Jose and Chris) were put to compete against four other aspiring candidates who didn't make the cut (Antony, Pena, Trevor and Carlos). Eventually Carlos [Olivero] was chosen to be included in Menudo's "final" set-up

In New Menudo (2007-2009)

The "new" Menudo band was made up of:

  • Carlos Emmanuel Olivero
  • José "Monti" Antonio Montañez
  • Emmanuel Jose Vélez Pagán
  • Christopher Nelson Moy

The film is a revealing look at contemporary youth culture, showing teenagers as they are, not as adults would like them to be. A comedy set in an ethnically diverse Los Angeles high school, it focuses on young friends as they deal with "romance, money, prom, college, sex, bullies, Facebook, fitting in, standing out, and finding themselves".[27] capturing the hopes, confusion, challenges and dreams of today's teenagers as they plunge headlong into an uncertain future. Credited as Carlito Olivero, he plays the role of Paco in the film.

The X Factor (2013) In 2013, he auditioned for season 3 of the American The X Factor. At the time he applied, he was employed as a server in a coffee shop.

On an episode broadcast on September 12, 2013, he auditioned with a soulful rendition of Rihanna's "Stay" getting four "yes"es from the four judges, Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio.

Jeff Gutt (born 1976), is a musician and vocalist originating from Detroit. He was a member and main vocalist of the band Dry Cell for various periods from 1998 to 2012. Gutt took part in two separate seasons of the American reality television series The X Factor. The first was in season 2 (2012) when he was eliminated in "bootcamp" and second time in season 3 (2013), when he reached the Final 16 live shows.

In Dry Cell Gutt started his musical career as main vocalist of Dry Cell in 1998 joining band mates Danny Hartwell, Judd Gruenbaum and Brandon Brown. After performing with them until 2004 and after the band released a studio album titled Disconnected in 2002, he left the band briefly with Dave Wasierski replacing him as main vocalist. Gutt rejoined Dry Cell in 2005.

The band went on a brief hiatus from 2005 to 2007, but in 2008 reunited with same members releasing a compilation The Dry Cell Collection of materials recorded from the issue of Disconnected in 2002 until 2005 and upon reunion in 2008. The band continued to perform until 2012 when it was put on hold, allowing Gutt to apply for X Factor.

Season 2 of The X Factor In 2012, Jeff Gut, auditioned for the second season of the American singing competition series The X Factor. In an episode broadcast on September 20, 2012, Gutt sang "Hallelujah", a cover of Leonard Cohen getting unanimous four "yes"es from the judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid. But he couldn't make it past the "bootcamp" stage and was eliminated before the live shows. Several weeks later, Cowell stated to Access Hollywood that one regret he had was sending Gutt home early.

On March 29, 2013, Jeff Gutt released a music video for his debut solo single "Hallelujah" through vimeo.[28]

Season 3 of The X Factor In 2013, he returned once again with the third season of the competition. He auditioned with the song "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" from Aerosmith. After the judges objected, he was offered a second song, "Creep" from Radiohead.[29] Based on that performance, he was put in the Final 40, and one of ten finalists in the "Over 25" category mentored by Kelly Rowland.

It was also announced on Gutt's official website that Dry Cell in which Gutt was main vocalist was now defunct.

In the newly-introduced "four-chair challenge", Gutt sang "Amazing Grace" and was selected as a Final 16 candidate and one of four in the "Over 25" category.

Personal life Gutt is a single father and has one son.
