The stuff you really gotta hear this sec
Jade Anderson, "Dive Deeper" (Columbia Records)
File under: Lush, lesson-packed R & amp;B
The lowdown: Twenty-one-year-old Jade is from England ... maybe that's why she sounds so smart, not smutty, like so many of her American counterparts (sorry!). She comes off as a class act even when she's singing about cheating guys and paternity suits.
No Secrets, "No Secrets" (Jive Records)
File under: Girlie-girl pop
Sounds like: You guessed it -- Dream!
The lowdown: OK, so everyone is saying that boy bands are, like, over. Maybe that means this group of fresh-faced, sweet singing girls will be the next big thing. Labelmates *NSync better watch their backs. And Britney better guard her closet.
