Grammy night is the best time to drop little tidbits about upcoming projects. Everyone wants to give away secrets about what’s going and what’s up next for them on the red carper. Sunday night, a few people took the opportunity to give up some news about their upcoming projects, and what changes have come in the year 2013.
After an interesting win and acceptance speech with Jay-Z and Frank Ocean at the Awards last night, The Dream announced that he will release his fourth studio album, Fourplay this March, with a single, appropriately titled “Slow It Down” debuting on Valentine’s Day. Originally, the album was titled Love IV and had been delayed several times, but the Radio Killa hit maker feels as though the time is right for his latest studio LP.
DRAKE ANNOUNCES ALBUM TITLE
Taking home a Grammy for Best Rap Album for his 2011 release Take Care, Drake announces the title of his hotly anticipated third studio album, Nothing Was the Same. He is presently working on the project in between Los Angeles and Toronto, with friend and longtime collaborator, Noah “40″ Shebib.
He recently released the music video for his lead single, “Started From the Bottom.”
KELLY ROWLAND RETITLES HER ALBUM
Kelly Rowland also took some time to sit down and dish about her fourth studio album. Originally titled Year of the Woman, Kelly switches the game up for a little more intimate and sexual, retitling the album Talk A Good Game. And it’s no surprised, being led off with singles like her current, “Kisses Down Low,” (produced by Mike Will Made It) and the Lil’ Wayne-assisted, “Ice.”
Kelly has been cutting records with the legendary Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, as well as Rico Love, T-Minus and Rock City. When asked during interviews about the album, Kelly revealed that the project doesn’t have a release date yet, had this to say:
I recorded 50 songs and condensed it down and it tells a different story. It’s way more intimate and a lot of it is some slick stuff that I’m saying out of my mouth, some things I can’t even believe I’m saying.
Kelly is set to release a video for her new single soon, but until then, keep it locked to CL for updates about release dates from your favorites.
