We didn’t too much care for her last album but the record prior, “Still Standing” is one of our favorite r&b albums EVER! “New Life” only did about 70k it’s first week but J Records and Clive Davis are applying the necessary pressure and the necessary promo budget to the project make sure it’s a huge success!

Monica’s been in the studio with Missy Elliot, Future, Polow Da Don, Rico Love, Stargate and now Miguel. We’re EXCITED!!

No official release date or album title have been announced but you know we’ll keep you posted!!

Young Jeezy Unveils “R.I.P” Remix Ft Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar & YG!!

rip-remix

It’s hot AF but not as epic as the original song but slightly more entertaining, given Breezy’s HUGE slug at Drake:

“You started from the bottom, go head and come out the closet” he spits over the DJ Mustard production…. #ShotsFired

Less then a year ago, Chris & Drake got into an all out fist fight while clubbing one weekend. The entourages of both men got involved and Chris Brown tweeted pictures of a deep cut on his chin from the fight. It was later reported that Rihanna was the cause, even though she was not at the club or in the same city at the time…. Since the brawl, Chris and Rihanna have publicly reunited..  Please believe that Drake is going to fire back!

Chris Brown “X” 2013 Album!!

We don’t f*** with Chris unless he really goes in but it sounds like he’s going to be taking a totally different direction on this new album, his 6th…

The album will feature Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, J-Lo and others while Pharrell Williams, Polow Da Don & Drumma Boy are expected to be at the helm of production!

RapUp reports the following:

“I tried to stay away from the Euro beats, and not go totally pop,” he toldRolling Stone at a listening session in L.A. “Instead, I wanted to take the Quincy Jones approach. The record pays homage to the Stevie Wonders, the Michael Jacksons, the Sam Cookes: I wanted to put that classic essence of R&B and soul with the new age of music now. There’s a lot of live instruments, and a lot less Auto-Tune. I really wanted to demonstrate my vocal ability, creating the vibe of me singing along with a band.”

Lil Wayne “I’m Am Not A Human Being” To Debut With 200,000 Units!!

lil wayne how to love

His last album, “The Carter 4” followed the 3rd with a one million unit debut but Wayne’s newest studio effort is only going to pull down about 200,000 units… We expected a lot more but even 200k is a feat in today’s market..

We previously reported Justin Timberlake’s nearly 1 million unit debut with his first album in 6 years, “The 20/20 Experience”..

Justin Timberlake Debuts At #1, Shifts 968,000 Units!!!

AMAZING!!!!! YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!! Three months ago, we didn’t even know JT was in the studio working on new music and now his album sits atop the Hot 100 with the 19th biggest sales week of the SoundScan era!! Billboard reports the following:

It’s official: Justin Timberlake’s new album “The 20/20 Experience” debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 968,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

“20/20,” released on March 19, is Timberlake’s second No. 1 album and logs his best sales week yet. It follows his last release, 2006’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” which arrived atop the list with his previous high: 684,000. Timberlake’s first album, 2002’s “Justified,” debuted and peaked at No. 2 with a 439,000 start.

“20/20’s” monster sales are the 19th-largest week for an album since SoundScan started tracking data in 1991. The all-time best-selling week was when Timberlake’s former group, ‘N Sync, saw its “No Strings Attached” album debut with 2.42 million at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated April 8, 2000.

The full top 10 of the new Billboard 200 — along with further sales analysis about “20/20’s” arrival — will be revealed on Wednesday, March 27.

All Eyes on Justin

Timberlake’s bow with “20/20” is biggest overall sales frame since Taylor Swift’s “Red” debuted with 1.2 million on the Nov. 10, 2012-dated chart. Among male artists, Timberlake has the largest week in nearly five years. The last larger by a man was when Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter III” debuted with 1.01 million on June 28, 2008.

Interestingly, “20/20” also tallies the third-biggest week for a solo male singer (aka: non-rapper). Only Usher and Garth Brooks have scored larger frames. Their “Confessions” (2004) and “Double Live” (1998) sets debuted with 1.10 million and 1.09 million, respectively.

Sources say Apple’s iTunes Store was the top seller of “20/20” for the week, as overall digital sales, with Target its No. 2 account. The latter was the only retailer with an exclusive version of the album: It includes two bonus songs unavailable anywhere else: “Dress On” and “Body Count.” Target has been heavily promoting the album via a series of TV commercials, the first of which premiered during CBS’ broadcast of the Grammy Awards on Feb. 10. For its part, iTunes had an exclusive stream of “20/20” that premiered on March 11 — more than a week before the album dropped on March 19.

During “20/20’s” debut week, the lowest advertised price for the album at a national retailer was $7 — both Walmart and Amazon.com were selling the physical CD for that price. Target promoted its exclusive version for $9.99. iTunes and its main competitor, Amazon MP3, sold the standard digital album for $10.99.

In the lead-up to the release of the album, Timberlake hosted and performed on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” (March 9) and had a week-long residency on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” (March 11-15). He also starred in his own TV concert special, “Target Presents: The iHeartRadio Album Release Party,” which aired twice on the CW during release week: March 19 and 22. The show was first streamed live on the Web via the iHeartRadio service on March 18.

eve lip lock

It’s been a long time coming but the hip hop diva is finally ready to release her new album, her first in over a decade… RapUp reports the following:

Eve gets up close and personal on the cover of Lip Lock, her first album in over a decade. The Philly rapper rocks a metallic lip and heavy eye makeup on the black-and-white artwork. She only wanted to show her face to represent the album’s different moods.

“I don’t want people to take [Lip Lock] too seriously,” she tells Billboard. “I’m not trying to relive any moments of my life. I’m in a new place in my life. I’m almost a new artist. It’s a fun record.”

Due May 14, the 12-song album features appearances from Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, Swizz Beatz, Dawn Richard, and Cobra Starship’s Gabe Saporta, who is featured on the first single “Make It Out This Town.”
