Mariah Carey’s upcoming highly anticipated album finally has a title! Thanks to longtime collaborator and friend Jermaine Dupri, who made the official announcement last night. The Art Of Letting Go will be released on July 23rd. As you know the album will feature contributions from of course Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox, Mike Will Made It, Hit-Boy, The-Dream, Big Jam Wright, R. Kelly, Darkchild, and Miguel.
From that tweet one would gather that Carey has now finished putting the final touches on her new album, which I’m beyond excited for. So far lead single "#Beautiful," which features talented vocalist Miguel has thus far peaked at #15 on Billboard Hot 100. Speaking on "#Beautiful" Carey recently shared some behind the scenes photos and tweets leading one to believe that there could be a remix on the raise.
Whatever the case I cannot wait to hear this album! Based off the title I’m guessing there will be a lot of ballads, which is the strongest area Carey shines in. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s revealed that Carey will be one of the performers for the upcoming BET Awards. Meanwhile all we need is one last album announcement from one person….
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!
-- Back with some first impressions... the beat is solid. Mike Will's on a roll lately gettin' everyone hyped. I could do without Future's autotune though, but Drake does a real solid job technically. I just don't resonate with the lyrical content on this particular verse. Not bad, though. I'll rock the generous 3 stars.
