It seems as though Ciara’s new album, Fantasy Ride which has changed release dates so many times that I haven’t been able to keep up, is going to be up for being shelved by Jive Records. The album was again slated for release for Spring 2009 (with no tentative release date!), even with Ciara’s new video for the first single, “Go Girl!” being out already and more than several tracks leaking.
But sources have been saying that the album may not even see the light of day. With pending lawsuits, multiple tracks leaking and a single that is tanking, even with high-profile features like T-Pain and the awesome Melina-directed video, it seems as though Fantasy Ride, originally Ciara’s first concept album, has run into a lot of problems. It’s been rumored that the whole project is to be scrapped and that Ciara will head back into the studio to work on a completely new package.
Seems like a headache, and a lot of money going down the tube…
CHRIS BROWN TALKS NEW ALBUM
Chris Brown began talking about his new album and revealed that the title of his third studio album will be, Graffiti.
The “Forever” singer says Madonna and Coldplay are on his short list of dream collaborations for his new LP, the follow-up to 2007’s Exclusive, due out next year.
Speaking from the red carpet at the American Music Awards, the platinum-selling R&B star said:
“It’s going to be my stepping stone from Chris Brown to superstar.”
I’m interested to see what producers Chris Brown is going to collaborate with this time around. Even though I thought that Exclusive was cool for his second effort, production-wise, Chris was a little all over the place. I hope this time the sound for the album is a little more focused.
AUBREY O’DAY PREPS ALBUM?
Aubrey O’Day, formerly of MTV’s Making the Band and Danity Kane fame chatted it up at a night club in Miami recently about what she’s been up to and revealed that she is working on a solo album, as well as in talks about doing another reality TV show.
I really wish the girls could just get it together. More recently, Shannon, Dawn and Aundrea have been making appearances as a threesome, and apparently, the performed some club dates as a trio as well. Danity Kane, honestly, is not the same without D. Woods and Aubrey. I really wish they could just get it together and be a group again.
In another news, it’s been confirmed the Miss O’Day has also posed nude for Playboy Magazine.
