The rapper went to ustream to announce both his album title and release date. Rolling Papers is set to be released on March 29th. Following the success of ‘Black and Yellow’, Wiz should have a nice welcoming when his albums drops.
Speaking of ‘Black and Yellow’, the track sold 201,000 copies this week, a 6% increase. With the steelers recent string of victories, I can only see the track becoming bigger in the upcoming weeks. Wiz has a lot of competition this year, but releasing his album early should give him a head start.
Jennifer Hudson will release the follow up to her self titled debut album on March 22. I Remember Me is preceded by ‘Where You At’, the R.Kelly penned single. Jennifer’s first album was R&B gold and it even won her a Grammy for Best R&B Album. I’m hoping that this album picks up where the last one left off, but her single is really not that good so I’m getting nervous.
Dr. Dre’s new single has gotten a release date as well. ‘I Need a Doctor’, featuring Eminem and Skylar Grey, will be released to itunes on February 1st. The song was produced by Alex Da Kid, who claims that it will be the biggest song of the past 10 years. I won’t comment until I hear it, but I will say that Alex has experienced a huge jump in popularity, this track should only further that.
Nicki Minaj and Drake have set a premiere date for their music video ‘Moment 4 Life’. The fairy tale themed visual is set to premiere on MTV this thursday at 9. We’ll be seeing a lot of videos for Nicki in the upcoming months as she has already filmed ‘Fly’ with Rihanna, and is set to film videos for ‘Did It On Em’, ‘Dear Old Nicki’, and more.
