As you all know June 18th is next week with huge hype surrounding the release of J. Cole’sBorn Sinner and Chicago’s very own Kanye West with Yeezus. Also dropping an album the same day is Kelly Rowland who will be holding down the R&B category. Today Kelly decided to treat her fans to a song off the album “Gone,” which features Wiz Khalifa. Take a listen below
Sampling Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi” some of you may not know that song, but Janet Jackson’s“Got ‘Till It’s Gone,” which also uses the same sample featuring legend rapper Q-Tip. This is a really nice song for Kelly and I really like it! The only thing keeping me from loving it is the fact that I feel Wiz Khalifa should have been competently left off this song. He doesn’t add anything to the song other then the question why is he on it? Any who be sure to grab Kelly’s album next Tuesday when it drops!
Bruno Mars is pretty much having the best week. HDD is predicting that his new album, Unorthodox Jukebox, will debut in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 next week. Bruno Mars’s album is projected to sell between 140 – 160k copies. Also the pop star has scored his fourth #1 single this week on the Hot 100 with "Locked Out Of Heaven." Also Wiz Khalifa’sO.N.I.F.C. debuted this week on Billboard 200 at the #2 spot with sales of 131k. Congrats!
