Jennifer's Spotlight, Ciara's Fantasy, Missy

Music News:
Jennifer Hudson will release her self-titled debut album on September 30. The album sports collaborations from Ludacris, Timbaland, Robin Thicke, The Clutch, The Underdogs, Ne-Yo, and Stargate. First single, "Spotlight" is taking off and currently sits at #14 on the R&B charts. The second single is being touted as "Pocketbook" featuring Ludacris and it was written/produced by The Clutch and Timbaland. I am looking forward to Jen's album. If you would of asked me awhile back, I would of said no. J Records seems to really be pulling all the stops out for Jen. I just hope they don't drop the ball on her after her second album like they do with all their other urban acts.

Ciara may of had a few false starts as far as her first single is concerned. It has been rumored that "Work" may be in contention for her first single. Ciara's triple album, "Fantasy Ride" will be released this November. The album sports collaborations from Tricky Stewart, Ne-Yo, T-Pain, Akon, Danja, The-Dream, Lil' Jon, and Ludacris. Confirmed tracks include: Lover's Thing, Independent Woman, When I, I'm On, Echo, Supernatural, and High Price. I thought original lead single, "High Price" was just alright. I am hoping "Work" will make me excited for this album.

Another one bites the dust. Missy Elliott finds her upcoming album, "Block Party" pushed back to November 11. Lead single, "Best Best" failed to take off at radio. Now a new single titled, "Talk That" produced by Timbaland will lead the album. Missy needs a strong first single as do a lot of artists nowadays. She definitely needs something that will give people a renewed interest in her as far as her solo career is concerned.
