BLACKBERRY PRESENTS MTV’s BRAND NEW FOR 2011 CONCERTS

WITH TINCHY STRYDER AND PERFORMANCES FROM MTV’s BRAND NEW FOR 2011 FINALISTS JESSIE J & RUFF DIAMONDZ

To celebrate in style, ‘Blackberry Presents MTV’s Brand New for 2011’ will hold two gigs at Camden’s KOKO on Tuesday 25th & Wednesday 26th January. The gigs will have exclusive performances from four of the finalists ‘Blackberry Presents MTV’s Brand New for 2011’; Jessie J and Ruff Diamondz.

‘Blackberry Presents MTV’s Brand New for 2011’ is the list of emerging talent MTV have tipped for the top in 2011.  This year’s list of new talent is even more far-reaching than previous, spanning across genres grime, rock, dub-step, indie and pop.

JESSIE J

She's penned tracks for Alicia Keys, performed with Cyndi Lauper, and her single, 'Price Tag' features breakout hip-hop star BoB - Jessie J is definitely the act to watch in 2011.

Debut UK single ‘Do It Like A Dude’ which features a monster of a remix from Labrinth is a straight out of the box party smash. The rest of her debut album ‘Who You Are’ is shaping up to be the pop release that everyone will need for the first half of 2011.

RUFF DIAMONDZ

With the UK currently awash with tawdry pop, Ruff Diamondz are a nod back to the glory days when sassy girl groups - En Vogue, Salt ‘N’ Pepa, TLC and the like - ruled the roost. 

The London-based trio are bringing some much needed kick and snare to the urban scene. But what’s making Ruff Diamondz - so named because it sums up what the girls feel they are - stand head and shoulders above the competition are the sultry vocals of Troy, 21, and Martika, 18, coupled with the fast paced emceeing delivered by Chronz, 21. 2011 will belong to them.

Their debut single ‘Do It Like Me’ will be released in 2011

THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 16+
