R&B-soul singer Thulisile Madihlaba, popularly known as Chomee, is hot.

The sizzling and vivacious singer is taking her music to another level. She will be shooting the video of her new album, My Fantasy, in the UK.

The video, which will cost about R100000, will be shot at the end of the month.

Chomee's manager and producer, Arthur Mafokate, said: "We are taking Chomee's music to another level.

"She deserves it. She has worked hard to be where she is."

Chomee said the songs in the new release are about her dreams coming true.

The video will be shot at some of the famous UK venues such as Trafalgar Square, Chelsea, Big Ben and Picadilly Circus.

Chomee burst on to the music scene in 2005 with the rap album, Twice as Nice.

Though the release received a cold reception from listeners and critics, it exposed Chomee's followers to her other talent, dancing.

But the lass did not get discouraged. She went back to the studio and dropped her latest release, My Fantasy.

She said the new release should unleash her vocal talent that will also get her recognised as an R&B-soul artist.

Last year Chomee won the Metro FM Music Award for the Best Styled artist.
