The Story of Saturday Night: Jsky & Trevor Nelson In The Mix + Ballers Everywhere!

I love my Saturday nights; the pinnacle of any week, and the talking point of the next. I love the trail of possibilities that are opened, people watching and banter in action. The flirting, the jokes and the chance to whack out some shapes on the dancefloor. I love it all.

Last Saturday the wannabe wags of the north descended upon the city centre for Manchester United football player Danny Welbeck's birthday party. Also celebrating that night was UK rapper Chipmunk, who was seeing in his 21st birthday at K2 Nightclub. Bijou Club also had their fair share of footballers partying it up with the likes of Jermaine Pennant, Wes Brown, Danny Simpson and youth Manchester United rising star Ezekiel Fryers to name but a few. TOWIE star Mario Falcone was also in town.

I made my way over to Boutique and arrived a little after 11pm. There was a nice amount of people there to begin with, but once I got settled at our table by the DJ booth this soon amassed to a full club. Trevor Nelson arrived fashionably later into the evening and joined our table, at which point it immediately became an agglomeration of Belvedere and Moet (of which we all dipped into congenially).

Trevor Nelson's DJ set was just getting into full swing when Dayid Haye and Rio Ferdinand made their way over to our table. I can remember singing for Rio Ferdinand years ago at an audition for his record label White Chalk. A lot has happened since then. I'm not the same little boy anymore.

NEW VIDEO ALERT! Beyoncé - Dance For You

This was already an incredibly sexy record. The video for 'Dance For You' is a visual fantasy of film noir detective striptease expulsion intensified by the lyrical content. I could eat this video for breakfast; it's delicious. Enjoy!

NEW VIDEO ALERT! Amy Winehouse - Our Day Will Come

The loss of Amy Winehouse is still very much a raw travesty in the hearts of music lovers and mine. I was very much looking forward to her return to form. This new Amy Winehouse release fittingly plays homage to the modern day legend. Her vocals will never tire, and many will aspire to have her edge. Truth be told there is only ever one Amy Winehouse.

Rihanna On Fire With New Record 'Talk That Talk'

Rihanna's latest offering is an absolute delight. Fun, quirky, and filled with excitement. Opening up with her follow-up single to the highly infectious 'We Found Love' is 'You Da One'; a matrimony of jocularity and euphoric gestures of love. In reprisal of her Caribbean roots is the sunshine filled rhythms of 'Watch n' Learn', a record that screams of carnivals and craves to be pumped out of a car stereo. This indeed is a tasty album, wet by the club appetiser 'Where Have You Been' and sweetened by the beguiling exit number 'Farewell'. 'Birthday Cake' is pure filth executed like an audio binge, whereas 'Cockiness (Love It)' takes things up an extra notch. This is an album filled with potential singles. Very, very cool, and Rihanna's Barbadian accent is just as satisfying as ever.
