Universal Music Enterprises to Debut "Bratz Forever Diamondz" CD, Next in the Best-Selling Series of Music Based on the Worldwide Hit Fashion Dolls

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 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."

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.
