Yessssssssss Kelly! This cover > Okay back to the actual story. Today Kelly Rowland released the artwork for her fourth solo studio album, Talk A Good Game. The album is set to drop June 18th featuring collaborations from band matesBeyoncé and Michelle Williams, Wiz Khalifa, Pharrell, The-Dream, Mike Will Made It, and more. “Kisses Down Low” serves as the lead from the new album. Also Kelly along side with The-Dream will kick off their tour “Lights Out” on May 23rd in Minneapolis. You can get your tickets now here. I can’t wait till this drops!
The-Dream drops an interesting teaser to the tracklist off his upcoming album, Love IV, with the new release of 1977 hitting stores tomorrow, by the way. The photo above is a simple whiteboard featuring his handwriting of 12 track titles, some of them, rather explicit. For example, track 12 is "Thirsty Whore", cut off by the above photo, but seen clearly here. No doubt there's more details to come on this project as we head into the new year.
Today honestly couldn’t get any better then this because Beyoncé aka King Bey will indeed be releasing new music. Long time collaborator The-Dream recently spoke to Billboard to share:
"Definitely. She's got her stuff going. She took the summer to start recording, and now she's in a place where she's ready to start gearing up to reveal her plan. She's already gearing up to get ready to put stuff out. I'm sure there will probably be a couple records you hear before the Super Bowl gets here."
Looks like Beyoncé will be heading the Madonna route to launch her next album. Madonna released her single “Give Me All Your Luvin” two days before her Super Bowl performance and less then two months later she released her album MDNA, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 with 359,000 copies sold. Beyoncé is making sure this go round that both she and her brand will be absolutely impossible to ignore.
I'm back at it with my Top 5 Songs of The Week. This week is was pretty easy for me for some reason, I listened to all the songs and these 5 jumped out at me right away. So that being said lets get to the list.
I know I don't put these in any type of order but this song is my number one song of the week, and I might add it to next week's list just because it's that damn cold. Alicia and Maxwell are two of the most amazing singers of our generations and them together just furthered that belief for me.
Big Boi did it again. So far from the songs that have dropped from Big Boi he has taken full advantage of the features he has. T.I. and Ludacris killed this, the beat is hard as hell, Big Boi did his things as usual, and he even added a thought provoking sample at the end. 'Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors' is going to NICE.
T.I. is a two time winner this week. It's hard to see any song with Andre 3000 on it not being in the top songs of the week, and I am not going to test that theory. T.I. spit a solid verse and 3k did something that he doesn't often do by letting us into his personal life when mentioning the apologizes to his mother, Big Boi, and "Baby Mother".
The Dream to me is real hit or miss. I really liked his first album but hated his second. This song reminds me of the music from his first album so I'm hoping this album will continue down this path and be a hit overall.
So that's this weeks list from me hope you all enjoy. Always feel free to comment with your thoughts and opinions. Til next week, two fingers to the side(that's peace to you don't get it).
Last year, The-Dream released a free project entitled 1977, but this year, Def Jam has green lit a re-release of the project, revealing so today in the album's artwork above. The album is set to hit stores December 18th, and will likely contain goodies (i.e. new tracks and bonus features), but no word on what exactly yet. Dream fans, consider this a pleasant Christmas gift as we move closer to the Holiday season.
It’s a lot of things you can never bring into question with Beyoncé, and one of them is who she chooses to collaborate with. Queen Creole and Light Bearer Beyoncé is currently working on her fifth studio album. She has already been in the studio with Hit-Boy, The-Dream, Missy Elliott, and now Miguel.
The raising singer-songwriter, who recently collaborated with Alicia Keys on Kaleidoscope Dream track, 'Where’s The Fun In Forever,' links up with the one and only King B. A few hours ago Miguel uploaded the photo above to his Instagram with the caption “…woah. creating for virgo’s all weekend,” but this was later deleted.
There are currently not any details on whose project this will be for, but the likely hood is it’s for Beyoncé. Whatever was the finishing product of this studio session on sure I will play it the hell out love it! Wouldn’t you just die if Beyoncé debuted this Miguel associated track during the Super Bowl? She’s already the headliner of the halftime show, so why not? All I know is this album will deliver life.
