According to Dr Dre, who recently spoke out about his long delayed album, Eminem is wrapping up recording sessions for his 2013 album. His last album, “Recovery” was the best selling album of 2010, earned him 2 grammys and a few trophies at the Hot 100! The fans are ready for the follow and this is just the year to deliver!!

We don’t know much about the project, a release date, collaboration list or titles but he’s been in the studio with Dr Dre of course and Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and even Drake are rumored to make appearances!!

JT’s “The 20/20 Experience” First Week Projections Swell To More The 900,000 Units!!!

jt 2013 2020

YESSSSSSSS!!!! JT could easily shift a million copies of “The 20/20 Experience” by Tuesday! He’s just released the music video for his second single, “Mirrors”, while “Suit&Tie” featuring JT currently sits in Billboard’s 10! The promo for this album has been flawless, surgical almost and JT is about to see a career high as a result of his hard work in the studio and on the promo trail!

Billboard reports the following:

Industry sources now forecast that Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience” could sell between 850,000 and 900,000 by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, March 24.

All Eyes on Justin

To bring you up to speed: On May 11 — before the RCA Records album came out on March 19 — Billboard first reported that the album was headed for at least 500,000. Then, once the album did drop, its sales projection jumped to 750,000 on the 20th, 800,000 on the 21st and now 850,000 to 900,000 today (22).

Could “20/20” go over 900,000? It’s quite possible, if the set performs strongly over the weekend.

With its massive sales, “20/20” will instantly become the year’s top selling album. It will eclipse Mumford & Sons’ “Babel,” which has sold 631,000 in 2013 according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Timberlake will also score his second No. 1 and his best-ever sales week with “20/20.” His previous high came with the arrival of his last album, 2006’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” which bowed with 684,000 at No. 1.

To put Timberlake’s monster sales in perspective, let’s look at how infrequently an album sells this many copies in a single week.

Since SoundScan started tracking data in 1991, there have only been 31 instances where an album sold more than 850,000 copies in a single week. 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 April 8, 2000 Billboard 200 chart.

In the late ’00s and into the ’10s, enormous sales weeks became less frequent, as more people opted to stream albums or purchase digital tracks.

Thus, since 2005, there have just been eight weeks where an album did 850,000-plus. All seven of them did so in their debut frames: 50 Cent’s “The Massacre” (1.14 million; March 19, 2005), Kanye West’s “Late Registration” (860,000; Sept. 17, 2005), West’s “Graduation” (957,000; Sept. 29, 2007), Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter III” (1.01 million; June 28, 2008), Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” (1.05 million; Nov. 13, 2010), Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” (1.11 million, June 11, 2011), Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” (964,000; Sept. 17, 2011) and Swift’s “Red” (1.21 million; Nov. 10, 2012).

Sources say Apple’s iTunes Store is leading the way in terms of sales of “20/20,” with Target the No. 2-seller of the set. The latter was the only retailer with an exclusive version of the album. Target’s deluxe CD edition includes two bonus songs unavailable anywhere else: “Dress On” and “Body Count.”

“Initial sales for ‘The 20/20 Experience’ at Target are exceeding our expectations and put it in a position to be one of our best-selling albums in the last 10 years,” Anne Stanchfield, Target’s divisional merchandise manager of entertainment, tells Billboard.

“For the launch of the album, Target focused on bringing our guests more of what they love about Justin. Our two broadcast spots served up some surprises, and Monday night’s release party gave fans a chance to be a part of an intimate performance through an innovative partnership with Clear Channel and the CW.”

While iTunes is selling “20/20” for $10.99 — as is its main competitor, Amazon MP3 — Target is offering its exclusive version for $9.99. Trumping all three is both Walmart and Amazon.com, which are selling the standard physical CD for only $7.

usher new album 2

YES!!! Ush has had so much success over the years but hasn’t brought the absolute fire like he did back in 2004 with “Confessions”, one of the greatest r&b albums of all time, his most acclaimed and biggest selling project to date… Now with the return of Justin Timberlake, Ush is back in the lab with Jermaine Dupre, Polo Da Don, Will.I.Am and more!! This could be all the motivation he needed……..

ush and jermaine

Back in 2003, he and JT were really the only men in modern r&b but since Usher has fathered a couple of kids, gotten married and divorced, lost his egde a bit while JT has been completely absent from the music scene up until just a couple of months ago. He’s making movie money like a muthaf*****  for the last 6 years… We’re anxious to watch these two have it out on the charts and at the award shows!!

The Backlash From Beyonce’s New Single Continues!!

The release of Beyonce’s latest single has caused major backlash. Rihanna’s fans feel she’s been copied, Keyshia Cole has called Bey out on Twitter and now uber political radio personality, Rush Limbaugh is firing off on her a**!!

HipHopWired reports the following:

The New York Daily News reports that yesterday (March 20) on The Rush Limbaugh Show, the host was inspired by an article from the UK’s Telegraph and its criticism of Beyoncé’s track. Agreeing with the writer, who says the Houston native’s song is a blow to feminism, the 62-year-old Limbaugh launched into a rant in an attempt to check the singer.

“[Destiny’s Child] songs were attempts to inspire young women not to take any grief from men. She’s done a 180,” said Limbaugh. “Beyoncé, now having been married, having been impregnated and giving birth to Blue IvyShe’s got a new song, ‘Bow, Down B-tches’… Beyoncé is now saying, ‘Go ahead and put up with it!’

Limbaugh continued his critique of the track saying, “You know why? I’ll tell you why. Because she married a rich guy. She’s even calling herself Mrs. Carter on the tour…She has shelved Beyoncé. She now understands it’s worth it to bow down.”
