LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - October 4, 2010) -  LSI -- Rising pop artist Manika released her latest pop single "Boyz R Dumb" on iTunes today. In celebration of the release, Manika is giving her fans a chance to win a customized iPad fully loaded with her digital discography.

The young pop singer recently spent time in the studio this year with producer Qura Rankin (Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, Babyface) to begin recording her debut album. Manika remarks about working with Rankin, "It has been fantastic working with Qura, he is amazing and so talented -- and a nice guy too! I was a little bit nervous the first time we worked together, but he put me at ease right away. It is such an honor to work with him."

Manika plans on touring elementary and middle schools on the west coast delivering the message of her music which in her words are "Be Yourself." Her inspiring message that is prominent in her music hit home with A-List music coach CeCe Sammy (Pop Idol) and music manager Frank DiLeo (Michael Jackson), who now comprise her artist management team.

Manika is also a published author since the age of 15 with the book "The Exciting Adventures of BOO," which teaches children ten important lessons in life. She will be releasing her next book titled "1, 2, 3 ...Publish Me!" with best-selling author Kevin Trudeau in the near future.
