QUEEN OF HEARTS: Songbird Alaine's debut disc, Sacrifice, was one of the play-it-to-the-max records of 2006, spawning solo hits like the title track and the sultry ballads "Deeper" and "No Ordinary Love". Nearly a decade later, the sweet-voiced chanteuse is ready to hypnotize us anew with her latest project, Ten of Hearts, which delivers Alaine's signature mix of intoxicating melodies and deeply affecting songwriting. But in interviews to promote the album Alaine admits that she wanted to give her fans an album with a bit of an edge this time around, as she showcases the creative growth and evolutionary maturity that's come to define her style and artistry. In any case, we can't wait to press play on the new disc and are beyond thrilled that the seasoned songstress is still doing her royal thing on the mic as she caters to her loyal followers.
SO FRESH, SO CLEAN: It's been quite a year so far for the World's Fastest Man, who is gracing the picture-perfect Summer 2015 edition of the track-and-field glossy Athletes Quarterly, dressed up in some of the season's coolest looks, made to come alive in some truly iconic and extraordinary images. (Take a look HERE.) Bolt, who is turning 29 in August, is anticipating another stellar summer that looks set to climax at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing, China, when he'll go for the sprint double in what could be a mouth-watering, photo-finish contest of wills against the resurrected American Justin Gatlin. But, until then, feast your eyes as Bolt works the camera in a series of fashion-forward ensembles courtesy of Athletes Quarterly.
