With major releases from the likes of Beyonce, Chris Brown, and Adele, 2011 was quite the year for Sony Music. A trend which looks set to continue after a highly placed exec lifted the lid on some of the label’s big plans for next year.
Details after the jump…
Joe Riccitelli, who serves as Head of Promotions at Sony’s lead label RCA, stopped by Coast 93.3 to talk about what 2012 holds for their roster. Check out what he said in the exclusive interview with Tony Knorp below…
Granted anything other than a 2012 release for Aguilera and Usher would have been crazy, it’s great to hear a new Pink project is also being conjured up. Ever consistent, Ms. Moore rarely disappoints, which has us here at TGJ HQ hyper excited about her first album since giving birth to daughter Willow.
Conversely, it’s equally awesome to hear that Britney Spears will be taking a much needed seat next year. She’s clearly been “zoned-out” for her last few projects; as such we can only hope the happiness in her personal life allows her to recharge her batteries. Or, perhaps, call it a day and focus on what else life has to offer. After all, she has just as much claim to the lyrics in Beyonce‘s ‘I Was Here’ as Beyonce does (see: done did it all).
Speaking of Bey (another Sony staple), I guess it’s safe to say, the mother-to-be won’t be dropping an album until 2013 at the earliest. Sigh.
