Los Angeles - August 10, 2006 - Diamonds are a girl's best friend--and so too is Bratz Forever Diamondz (Hip-O/UMe). The third installment in the wildly popular Bratz CD music series releases September 19, 2006 and features brand new songs by some of today's hottest pop songwriters and producers, notably Matthew Gerrard, best-known for his work on the #1-charting soundtrack to High School Musical and for hits by Kelly Clarkson, Hilary Duff and Jessica Simpson, to name a few. Song titles on the CD by Gerrard include "Let Go", "Hang On" and "You've Got It".
Also Contributing to the Bratz Forever Diamondz CD is leading entertainment hit-making firm, Engine. Among the tracks via Engine are "Wazz Up" and its Spanish version, "Que Tal," as well as covers of Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful" and a brand new remake of David Bowie's "Fashion." All music is inspired by MGA Entertainment's new Bratz Forever Diamondz fashion doll line hitting stores now.
An initial release of the Bratz Forever Diamondz CD includes bonus tracks and special packaging that accommodates a stylish bracelet with cool charms for girls to wear.
In addition to the CD, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will release the latest Bratz DVD movie, "Bratz Passion 4 Fashion Diamondz" on September 26, 2006. An early October release date is planned for THQ's Bratz Forever Diamondz video games.
Bratz Forever Diamondz follows 2005's Bratz Rock Angelz, which hit #1 on Billboard's Kids Audio Chart and debuted in Billboard's Top 100, where it was a staple for many months and became one of last year's 100 best-selling albums approaching 500,000 units sold worldwide. Earlier this year, Bratz Genie Magic, a soundtrack to the DVD movie and doll line of the same name, was released.
Bratz began as a line of lifestyle fashion dolls manufactured by MGA Entertainment, a leader in consumer entertainment products for children of all ages, and became a worldwide phenomenon among tween girls (ages 6-12). Bratz has won more awards and received more press recognition than any other fashion doll brand since its debut in 2001.
