After several singles and delays, it seems as though the team is pulling it together for Kelly Rowland’s third solo album, which still doesn’t have a title yet.
Even though the album is still currently untitled, she has announced that she will be dropping a new single, “Motivation,” featuring Lil’ Wayne. There was a bit of confusion that Kelly had to clear up:
“In the middle of having dinner at the Bvlgari Hotel in Milan Kelly Rowland has personally confirmed to OMKelly.com, her official fansite, that her new album will not be entitled Motivation,” says the source. “The album title will be revealed on both her official website KellyRowland.com and OMKelly.com in the near future.”
The new track, produced by Jim Jonsin and written by Rico Love, is said to be a mix of dance, hip hop and R&B, will be available soon, still with no release date for the new album.
FOXY BROWN ANNOUNCES DOUBLE ALBUM?
Foxy Brown has announced that she will be dropping another album. It’s been since 2008 since Foxy released her last album, Brooklyn’s Don Diva, but she’s announced that we can expect an album in September of this year, called Black Roses.
And you’re prepping new music yourself, right?
The new album! Black Roses. I’m in the studio every night, slaving. It’s going to be the first double CD from any female rapper in history, so it’s going to be really big. One side is going to be straight hip-hop and hardcore records, and a couple big radio joints, and then the other side is dancehall rock… I personally want it to drop around August or September.

Seems like the rap girls are trying to get their game back up since Nicki Minaj has come on the scene. I guess fans are excited since Foxy’s Christmas Massacre mixtape.
NICKI MINAJ LINES UP A NEW SINGLE

Nicki has chosen the Bangladesh-produced track “Did It On ‘Em” for the next single.
KID CUDI DROPS MANAGER, STARTS NEW LABEL
Kid Cudi, who recently released his sophomore album, Man On the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager, has announced a split from his manager, Patrick “Plain Pat” Reynolds, his partner and producer Emile Haynie, and his imprint, Dream On, which the three launched in 2009.
Rumors had circulated about the split when Cudi made tweets about “making changes” last Friday.
“New number, new email, starting fresh. Lettin’ go of all things holding me back,” Cudi began. “If you have my contacts, don’t hit them after today. If I haven’t hit you by now to tell you, good knowing you and I wish you well. Feels good to start over, opening a new chapter… focused on my empire, focused on love, focused on family. If you’re not in that equation, byeeeeeeee.”
This isn’t the first time that Cudi has made a dramatic exit. Back in 2009, he made a dramatic exit from his original Twitter account, but it seems as though he’s taken to his new account, @wizardcud to gush details about the dissolving of Dream On, as well as his new album.
“Dream On is over,” he tweeted. “New label announcement soon. Pat and Emile are doing their own thing, I wish them well. I have a diff vision, for music, for the world. I’m just doing the right thing, I come from a different place. People lose sight of the mission. Can’t expect everyone to be built like me. When people have different visions, you gotta go your own way.”
Kid Cudi also reveals that the new label, which has yet to be titled, will still hold ties with Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint, with whom he affiliated with to release his last album. Cudi concluded by promising that while the team may have changed up, the music would remain the same. “The jams will be the same but more real and true to me,” Cudi tweeted. He is currently hard at work on his new rock album Wizard.
