Osbourne Courting Dance Fans On New CD
The new-wave-hued track ascends 12 positions on Billboard's Hot Dance Radio Airplay chart to No. 13 this week.Although Kelly Osbourne's sophomore album, doesn't arrive until June 7 via Sanctuary, "Sleeping in the Nothing" is already off to a good start thanks to the single "One Word." The new-wave-hued track ascends 12 positions on Billboard's Hot Dance Radio Airplay chart to No. 13 this week.
Such news explains why the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon was omnipresent in Miami Beach during the recent Winter Music Conference and M3 Summit, including presenting an award at the WMC's International Dance Music Awards.
"I'm here because I've decided to change direction in my music," Osbourne told Billboard backstage at the awards ceremony. "I came to Miami to find out everything I didn't already know about dance music."
So what prompted the new sound? Without missing a beat, Osbourne replied, "Take a really good look at what girls my age are doing musically. They're all doing the same sh*t. I hate being the same. So, I had to do something different -- something that I was passionate about."
Though she has turned to dance music, Osbourne noted that "it's still very much me -- the album has an edge. And I'm excited."
