Music Fab: Updates On Ciara, Solange, Lupe, Jay-Z, MJB, & Alicia Keys
Apr 14 | by Natasha
RDiamond/WireimageCiara's upcoming album, scheduled to drop this September, is currently entitled Fantasy Ride Reportedly her first single is a joint with Ludacris called "Fantasy Ride" (produced by Polow Da Don) and should drop this summer in July. I hear the album will be her usual Crunk N' B/Dance/R&B style. And it's being produced by producer-o-the moment Tricky Stewart. Ne-Yo, The Dream, Lil Jon, and T-Pain are just some of the folks she's working with on the album. Good ish. Hopefully. More music news when you read the rest...
Solo's new promo shotSolange is giving everybody insight into her new album Sol-AngeL & The Hadley Street Dreams scheduled to drop July 26th. She talked about how her sound differs from her sister's:
"Our music is completely different. I think I would describe it as 60s and 70s soul music, so it is definitely not something that you really hear. I don't try to focus so much on defining how I am different (from Beyoncé), I just focus on myself as an artist and the message that I have with my music is the story that I can only tell. That's definitely mine and mine alone."
Cattermole/WireimageAlicia Keys has some sexy thoughts racing through her mind these days. Apparently she just hit the studio very recently to record "her most sexual song yet". Her manager even told her "we don't record songs like this". But I have a feeling that piece is about to make it on an upcoming album in some way shape or form. Ms. Keys is also speaking up about the conspiracy of "Gangsta Rap" saying there's no such thing and it was just a made up term to divide, conquer, and hurt the black community. In her Blender interview, she says:
"‘Gangsta rap’ was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other. ‘Gangsta rap’ didn’t exist."
