Seems as though Alicia Keys will also suffer from a push back this time around, with her fourth studio album, The Element of Freedom.
The album was supposed to drop December 1st on World AIDS Day, but it seems as though the album will drop two weeks later, on December 15th.
Alicia claims, via her Twitter page that the album is being pushed back because she is loving “having the freedom to create beautiful music.” Good for you, Alicia!
Keys is currently promoting her first single from the album, “Doesn’t Mean Anything,” which has hit #61 on the Billboard charts. With the video just releasing, she has already made plans to release a second single, titled “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart,” which is slated to impact radio in the coming weeks.

REBIRTH + YOUNG MONEY COMPILATION RELEASE DATE
Fan favorite Lil’ Wayne is going out with a bang. Before the year’s end, he’s releasing two albums on the same day.
His often delayed album, Rebirth, after almost a year’s time, will see shelves December 15th, as well as the Young Money compilation albums, which will showcase the entire Young Money roaster, which includes Drake, Gudda Gudda, Nicki Minaj, Shanell, Tyga and others.
It’s unsaid whether or not Wayne will also drop The Carter IV before the year’s end, or even before he has to serve his sentence on gun charges next year. But Cash Money and Young Money are looking forward to releases from their other artist at the top of 2010 with hotly anticipated releases from Drake, Bow Wow and Nicki Minaj.
