Ashanti and Ricky Martin helped launch the new POCK IT CD SINGLE today (16JUN03), which Sony and Universal Music hope will revolutionise the single sales market.

The new single format features a 'mini' cd measuring just 7.8 centimetres (3 inches) in diameter, and features two songs by artists at a price of just 2.99 Euros ($3.18/GBP2.12).

The major record labels hope the format, which is being trialled in Germany before hopefully transferring to the rest of the world, will stem the tide of rapidly falling singles sales.

Ashanti and Ricky Martin are just two of twelve artists with songs released in the new format.
