solange k e1276449580730 Solange Talks New Album, Former Label, Beyonce, Janelle Monae & More!

In a recent interview with VIBE, the ever-eclectic Solange lifted the lid on the recording process for her 3rd studio album (set for an October release), describing its sound as “80s R&B meets new wave dance-rock”.

During the insightful piece (spotted over at Gossip On This), the youngest of the Knowles clan also talked about her critics, Beyonce, the handling of her last album ‘Sol-Angel & The Hadley Street Dreams’, being an independent artist now, Janelle Monae and so much more. An awesome read.

Excerpts after the jump…

T.I’s ‘King Uncaged’ Gets Pushed Back

ti king T.Is King Uncaged Gets Pushed Back

T.I. fans are going to have to wait a lot longer than than expected to get their hands on his new album. The rapper’s highly anticipated ‘King Uncaged’ LP has been pushed back from it’s original release date of August 17th to September 28th. This news comes as a surprise to many as the album’s 1st promo single, ‘I’m Back’, has already climbed to #44 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #12 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with little promotion. {Source}

I sense that this decision is probably related to conflicts with T.I’s current promotional schedule for his new movie, ‘Takers’. Undoubtedly his label wants to ensure that his album gets sufficient attention and that he could capitalise on every avenue available such as the upcoming MTV VMA’s. Furthermore, as T.I. chose to use the 2010 BET Awards to promote ‘Yeah Ya Know (Takers)’ from the ‘Takers’ soundtrack instead of his own project, he missed out on a major opportunity for exposure. Indeed, this decision may prove to be wise in the long run.
