SWV - "Co-Sign" | New Music Yes, it’s true. Your eyes are not deceiving you…Them Sisters With Voices, SWV are back with some newness for your ears with this track “Co-Sign”. Coko, Taj and Lelee sound in fine voice with this track featuring throwback drum programming set against an electric piano vamp, which actually strays very little from their old sound, yet still doesn’t sound dated at all. I for one, am glad that when I pressed play on this track I wasn’t greeted with a Euro synth backed by a house beat with autotuned R&B vocals over it and that SWV have stuck to the essence of R&B that they flew the flag for in their era. There are shades of “I’m So Into You” on this track, especially the beginning of the chorus, but that’s never a bad thing in my eyes. Press play below!

George Clooney And Noah Wyle Duking It Out To Play Steve Jobs Movie Role Advertisements It seems Steve Jobs’ death has only managed to increase the mystery surrounding his life. Despite the official biography of the Apple co-founder selling by the truck-load, many would argue that the biographer Jobs chose wasn’t really the right man for the job. Walter Isaacson, while no doubt an excellent author, just didn’t seem to get the whole mystery and intrigue which surrounded Steve Jobs, and as such, some of the burning questions we all have still remain un-asked, even with Isaacson’s unprecedented access. While a good book, it could possibly have been so much more. Those still wishing to get a bit more of a ‘Steve fix’ might not have to wait too long, though, with rumors circulating that a biopic is already in the works.
