Great deals on musical instruments

50 Cent is planning to make Jamelia "the first lady of G-Unit".

The 'Candy Shop' rapper - otherwise known as Curtis James Jackson III - hit it off with the British singer at the premiere of his movie 'Dead Man Running' in London last October.

He has pledged to help her launch her career in the US by signing her up to his record label.

A source close to the hip-hops star said: "He thinks she is sexy, talented and has the right personality and talent to be huge in America.

"He wants to make her the new first lady of G-Unit, as it has no female artists."

Jamelia recently revealed she had flown out to the US to work on her new album.

She said: "I'm collaborating with some amazing producers. I've worked with a guy called Harmony who's part of the Darkchild camp - he's worked with everyone from Beyonce to Lady Gaga in the past.

"I've also worked with a couple of producers out in Atlanta - a guy called Hard Work who's very up-and-coming, and another guy called AJ who's produced stuff for the new Usher album."

Jamelia's last album 'Walk With Me' sold 100,000 copies, but she claimed she wasn't happy with it.

She said: "I love the songs individually, but I don't feel that if flows very well as an album."
