Everything that you could ever want to know about the hottest albums.
The Carters are taking over. Beyoncé is readying her highly anticipated album, out sometime soon and hours ago during the NBA Finals Game 5 (Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs), her hubby Jay-Z gave rap fans yet another reason to rejoice with the announcement of his album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,’ out July 4th.
In a three minute Samsung ad, Jay-Z is seen in the studio with fellow masterminds Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. “We don’t have any rules, everybody is trying to figure it out,” he says. “That’s why the Internet is like the Wild West. The Wild Wild West. We need to write the new rules.”
Kanye West’s upcoming album ‘Yeezus’ hits shelves on June 18th and while very little is known about it, he took to the web to release the official track list for the LP, giving us even more of a reason to buy the disc.
The 10-tracs include appearances from Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, Chief Keef, King L, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Charlie Wilson. There is even a special appearance by God on ‘I Am A God.’ Epic, right?
“We didn’t give a f*ck about what nobody said from the outside looking in,” Kanye said at the album listening in New York. “We just wanted to make the best product possible and this is just the beginning of an entirely new mentality of how to make music directly for the people.”
Kylie Minogue is back in the game. The Pop star has found new management under Roc Nation and with the release of her new single ‘Skirt,’ she’s teased her upcoming 12th studio album.
“[The album will be] pop dance but with a few new flavors. Expect the unexpected! … Joining the Roc family has been an exciting whirlwind,” she told Nowness. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some producers who have been on my wish list for a number of years so it’s amazing! Roc Nation is such a dynamic company, combining many years of experience with a hungry young team. It makes for fireworks and I think that will be heard in the music.”
Justin Timberlake’s ‘The 20/20 Experience’ is doing unbelievably well and hours ago saw the singer announce ‘Tunnel Vision’ as the third and final single from the album. The track is another slow ode to the 90’s and comes in at almost seven minutes.
Along with the announcement, Timberlake also unwrapped the tricky cover art, which blends his face with the beautiful body of a naked woman.
Sneaky, isn’t it?
‘Tunnel Vision’ will be released on iTunes on July 15th with ‘The 20/20 Experience’ Part 2 hitting shelves on September 30th.
Look who’s winning!
