Today sees the release of several new R&B/Hip-Hop offerings:
First up is Pop superstar Janet Jackson, who with ‘Discipline’ – her tenth studio album, hopes to redeem herself from the relatively poor sales of her last two records. Though she’s gone on record to say ‘don’t call it a comeback, I never left’, should the sales of ‘Discipline’ exceed expectation, Janet could feasibly make the biggest ‘comeback’ since Mariah’s 2005 triumph. Time will tell.
Eccentric singer Erykah Badu releases her first LP in 5 years ‘New Amerykah – Part 1: 4th World War’ – the follow-up to 2003’s ‘Worldwide Underground’. Released via Universal/Motown, the album features such soulful producers as the late J Dilla, Sa- Ra, 9th Wonder, Madlib and Kareem Riggins.
Other LP’s dropping today include Bad Boy’s Cheri Dennis‘ long-awaited debut ‘In & Out Of Love’. Following its ‘first of its kind’ release strategy of being made available on iTunes several months earlier, the record will be available in physical format as from today.
Oh , and rapper Webbie drops ‘The Savage Life 2’ also.
Which of these albums will you be picking up this week?
