TrueClefMusic’s editor & chief, RJ DaMonarch will be participating in a radio interview today at 3 p.m on 103.6 Bang FM Radio! He and host, Sherryl Blu will be talking about subliminal messaging in popular music. Tune in!!!
“Kanye West’s new album will make you confused rap n—- go back and listen to BEAT TAPES you’ve ignored,” tweeted DJ Scratch last weekend. “Trust me.”
Such a bold statement can only serve to make fans build their anticipation for the next move from rapper Kanye West.
With West fading into obscurity ever since his incident with Taylor Swift, there has been word from everywhere that the rapper has been steadily regrouping and preparing himself for his fifth studio album, Good A** Job.
As sources have stated that the Chicago native is heavily recording in Hawaii, there has been assurance that it will mark the return of West back to real rap and embracing his Hip-Hop principles.
And for those that were curious, there is word that there will be no Auto-Tune this time around as the phase of808s & Heartbreak has come and gone, and the rapper is looking to bring things back to his core foundation.
In terms of sound, the rapper/producer will be enlisting the talents of legends behind the boards which can only result in that vintage sound.
“Talked to s’one who’s heard Kanye’s next album,” tweeted Toure yesterday. “Says it’s awesome, it’s ‘real hip-hop.’ Outside producers include Pete Rock, Q-Tip, RZA.”
With such an arsenal in the corner of the rapper, all West might have to do is just rap having such big names backing him up, which most other artists could only imagine as simply a wish list.
Still without an official release date for Good A** Job, or even any word of a potential single to look forward to, West is clearly looking to keep his upcoming project under wraps until the curtain raises and it’s time to start the show.
This album has to be on point. All the crossover efforts and advancements made with “808’s & Heartbreak” were completely undone when Kanye straight READ Taylor Swift in front of millions of viewers and a room full of peers..
“Good Ass Job” should be a complete return to form, no autotone, no singing and no weird cinematic production. Bring the skits, the Chaka Kahn and Patti Labelle collabos and the slay’n a** tag lines BACK!!! The game has missed Mr West!
The wait is over for Christina Aguilera fans, as the pop star announced today (Mar. 25) that she’ll release “Bionic” — her long-anticipated fourth studio album and the first since 2006’s “Back to Basics” — on June 8.
“Not Myself Tonight,” the lead single off “Bionic,” will premiere on Aguilera’s official Web Site on Mar. 30, while an exclusive preview of the song will debut this Friday.
Recorded in her home studio, “Bionic” features “electronic and organic elements with subject matter ranging from playful to introspective,” Aguilera said in a statement. “It is something I don’t think anyone will expect…I am so excited for my fans to hear the new sound.”
In addition, Aguilera confirmed long-rumored collaborations with Sia, Le Tigre, Christopher “Tricky Stewart,” Hill & Switch and Ladytron, and a ballad entitled “Lift Me Up” written by Linda Perry, who also penned “Back to Basics” singles “Hurt” and “Candyman” and Aguilera’s 2002 hit, “Beautiful.”
Aguilera’s “Back to Basics” album has sold 1,694,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Her 2008-released greatest hits set, “Keeps Getting Better: A Decade of Hits,” has sold 338,000.
Yessssss!!!!! I’m excited, she’s one of the greatest voices of our generation! She took a pretty severe beating back in 06 when she released “Back To Basics” along side Beyonce’s “B’Day”.. NOT WISE! But this time there will be NO insects and with Mariah Carey’s album tanking and Kelly Clarkson wrapping promo, it’ll be anyone’s game, why not Christina’s?
