Though it was announced a few days ago I'm just getting wind of Trina announcing the release of a new mixtape. Titled Back 2 Business the mixtape will be released on September 28. The mixtape will feature 12-14 original tracks. Rick Ross is expected to make an appearance among others.
Rumor is that Trina is signed to Maybach Music Group/Warner Bros. Records but no formal announcement has been made of yet.
I just read that the release of Keyshia Cole's upcoming album Woman To Woman has been moved to November. The original date was an unspecified date in October. Word is the singer has reunited with producer Rodney Jerkins.
While we await the new Keyshia Cole album her BET reality show Keyshia & Daniel: Family First will be airing in October.
One of Keyshia Cole's collaborators for Woman To Woman is Ashanti(who guests on the title track). Ashanti is putting the finishing touches on her own oft-delayed album Braveheart. While the release date is still unknown the singer recently revealed photos of herself in the studio. The singer reunited with producer L.T. Hutton(produced The Way That I Love You) for a song titled Make It Better. There is no word yet if the recently recorded song is Ashanti's new single.

Meanwhile you can look forward to T.I. on his reality show T.I. & Tiny on VH1 airing on September 3.

The album's first single Enough Of No Love featuring Lil' Wayne currently sits at #14 on the R&B charts and debuted at #94 on the Hot 100 charts. Go Keysh!
Another one bites the dust. Brandy sees her album Two Eleven pushed back yet again this time to October 16. The album was previously being released on October 2. There is no word on the push back but the album has faced plenty of push backs in the last few months. Let's hope this date sticks!
Nas will release Reach Out featuring Mary J. Blige as the newest single from his #1 album Life Is Good.
Nas and Mary J. Blige have a history of working together over the years. Nas has appeared on numerous remixes of Mary J.'s songs and most recently appeared on her song Feel Inside from her My Life II: The Journey Continues album.
Ciara has revealed possible lyrics in a letter written to fans. The song titled Sorry is said to be released on August 20. It is newest single from her upcoming album One Woman Army in stores this October.
Speaking of new albums; Alicia Keys has revealed the new title of her album; Girl On Fire. I would say that's a pretty interesting title coming from someone such as Alicia Keys. I could see someone like Pink naming her album something like that but whatever.
For the new album Alicia enlisted Pop Wansel(worked with Nicki Minaj), Babyface, Swizz Beats, and Sevyn(who wrote the song New Day).
Look for Alicia to premiere a new song on the VMAs airing on September 6.
Azealia Banks is the cover girl for the new issue of SPIN magazine. I'm assuming this is the American version of SPIN and not the UK one. I'm not sure because Azealia is starting to garner a lot of magazine covers here in the States and beyond the sea.
The rapper recently graced the cover of VIBE magazine and UK magazine Dazed & Confused; which has been banned in seven countries. Why? Because on the cover(which hasn't leaked yet) features Azealia with a pink condom in her mouth.
Terry Ellis of En Vogue went solo in 1995 and released the single What Did I Do 2 You?; which was the second single from her album Southern Gal.
Terry Ellis and her En Vogue band mates were in the midst of working on new music. Somewhere along the way the ladies have had another one of their infamous falling outs. Now the group have split into two and are recruiting new members for the perspective groups.
If you recall some years back Dawn Robinson left En Vogue for a short time for a solo career that went nowhere. Thereafter she joined the ill fated group Lucy Pearl and scored a hit with the song Dance Tonight.
It has been revealed that Keyshia Cole's second single is titled Trust & Believe. In addition to prepping her second single; Keyshia Cole is setting up a new shoe line with Steve Madden.
Her upcoming reality show; Keyshia & Daniel: Family First will air on October 10. As for the release of her new album Woman To Woman; the release date remains in the air. I did read October 22 then I was reading something about November.
Personally I think the album should be released late September and the album will have a comfortable shelf life when the reality show premieres.
Speaking of new albums Mariah Carey's new album won't be released until March 2013. That has stopped her from releasing her newest single Triumphant(Get Em) featuring Rick Ross & Meek Mill. The song debuted at the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart this week at #97.
March 2013 is awhile from now and it had been revealed that Mariah is still working on this album so that explains the date.
The wait is almost over. The premiere of Brandy's new video for Put It Down featuring Chris Brown will debut on August 14 on VEVO.
Brandy will also premiere the video on 106 & Park on the same day as well as co-host the show. A few days ago a video preview of Put It Down was released.
Usher plans to release two more singles off his recently released album Looking 4 Myself; which is currently getting a lot of play on my iPod. The next two singles are Numb for the Pop crowd and Dive for the Urban crowd.
To date Looking 4 Myself has sold 316,000 copies. Usher's 2004 album; Confessions just crossed the 10,000,000 million copies mark awhile back.
If you've been inquiring about Ciara's upcoming album One Woman Army; label honcho L.A. Reid spoke out via BRAVO's Watch! What Happens Live! The album is slated for a Thanksgiving release.
A few months ago Ciara leaked out the song Sweat featuring 2 Chainz after it was quickly pulled from the radio. Later Boy Outta Her…
In stunning news, some very reliable sources close to the situation have
confirmed that Young Jeezy is now the Senior Vice President of Artists
& Repertoire for Atlantic Records. The label plays home to such
big-time rap and Hip-Hop acts such as T.I., Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz,
Lupe Fiasco and much more will hold the Snowman responsible for talent
scouting and overseeing the artistic development of its artists.
news broke by way of V-103 in Atlanta's own DJ Greg Street and was
confirmed by Young Jeezy's production coordinator, DJ Folk. "Snow is
about to have three different situations across three different labels,"
Folk said last night. Jeezy, who is still very much signed to Island
Def Jam as an artist, signed Freddie Gibbs and Tone Trump to his own
imprint, Corporate Thugz Entertainment. http://hiphopwired.com/2012/08/09/young-jeezy-named-svp-of-ar-at-atlantic-records/
Just when we all thought music was an afterthought to Justin Timberlake; the singer/actor is back in the studio working on a new album; his third as a solo artist. Justin will be reuniting with his frequent collaborator Timbaland. Producer Jim Beanz(worked with Ashanti) will also be on board for the upcoming album. While there is no release date available yet; we can likely look forward to the new album sometime next year.
Melanie Fiona has chosen Wrong Side Of A Love Song as her 4th single from her album The MF Life. Melanie performed the song on the BET Awards this year and drew a lot of positive feedback.
Toni Braxton released the single Just Be A Man About It in 2000. It was the second single from her 2x Platinum album The Heat. The video features appearances from Dr. Dre(who guests on the track) and Q-Tip.
Toni Braxton is currently working on a long overdue duet album with Babyface titled Love Marriage Divorce. You can also see her on a new season of Braxton Family Values airing August 16 on WE.
Meek Mill's debut album Dreams & Nightmares has been pushed back to "Late October". The album was originally set to be released on August 28.
When the rapper appeared on 106 & Park awhile back he hinted at the possibility of an album pushback. Nowadays its not totally surprising but its very annoying when albums get pushed back; especially ones that we are anticipating.
In other Meek Mill news he is featured alongside Rick Ross on Mariah Carey's new single Triumphant (Get 'Em) which was leaked out yesterday.
Someone who is releasing an album this month is Elle Varner. Her J Records debut album Perfectly Imperfect will be released on August 7. The album features the hit singles Only Wanna Give It To You featuring J. Cole & Refill. Elle recently released I Don't Care as the album's third single.
Charli Baltimore will release her new album True Lies on September 25. The album features the single All Lies featuring Maino. True Lies (if released) will mark Charli Baltimore's first album release to be released physically in the United States. Charli hasn't had the best of luck in the past with her label and album situations. Her debut album Cold As Ice was released internationally but was shelved here in the States. Her album The Diary under The Inc/Def Jam label was shelved. Her brief signing to Game's BlackWallstreet ended quicker than it started. Now an independent artist Charli is more likely to release this album just from the fact that she's an independent artist. I gotta say I love the album cover by the way and I love the title of the album. Here's hoping that the music on the album is high quality. I'm not a fan of the All Lies single with Maino.
Anita Baker is returning with a new album titled Only Forever on October 23. The album's first single is Lately which is a remake of Tyrese's hit song. Tyrese also duets with Anita on the song. The song will be released on August 7.
It was announced awhile back that Anita Baker collaborated with Snoop Dogg or should I say Snoop Lion for the album.
Good news for you Mystikal fans! The rapper was recently let out of jail. He was sent back to jail after violating his probation. Now that he is out he can resume working on his upcoming album Original. The upcoming album features Busta Rhymes & Rick Ross among others.
I read that Mystikal is 41! I would of never guessed that. I don't know how old I thought he was but I wouldn't of guessed 41. Then again when Mystikal was really popular I was in high school and that was 10 years ago so I guess it makes sense.
Wiz Khalifa has pushed back the release date of his new album O.N.I.F.C.(Only Niggas In First Class) to September. The album's previous release date was later this month. A Taylor Gang compilation is said to follow in October spearheaded by Wiz. Kreayshawn's new album Somethin' 'Bout Kreay has been pushed back to September 18. The album was previously being released on August 14. The album contains the hit single Gucci Gucci and the recently released songs(and videos); Breakfast featuring 2 Chainz and Go Hard.
The album features appearances from Kid Cudi and V-Nasty part of Kreay's White Girl Mob.
Are you checking for Kreayshawn's album? I admit Gucci Gucci is nice and makes for a very catchy song. After that she kinda lost me.
What I do like about Kreayshawn though is she doesn't take herself too seriously and she's having fun with it.
Vivian Green is back with a new single from her upcoming album The Green Room due September 25. Vivian Green is now on eOne Records which features a roster that includes such artists as Faith Evans, Ashanti, Pleasure P, and more.
Paramount Pictures is releasing Paranormal Activity 4 on October 19; just in time for Halloween.
What do you think about the trailer? Will you being seeing Paranormal Activity 4 when it hits theaters? I saw Paranormal Activity and Paranormal Activity 3 in theater. I fell asleep on Paranormal Activity; not to say it wasn't good. I guess I was just tired. My friend and I had went to a very late showing.
As for Paranormal Activity 3; I went with a group of friends and their kids and we all felt like we wasted our money.
Finally the video for Keyshia Cole's debut video Enough Of No Love is here. It's from her upcoming album Woman To Woman. Keyshia Cole is expected to debut the video today on 106 & Park. What do you think of the video?
When Alicia Keys takes the stage at this year's MTV VMAs the singer will premiere a new "crazy" song according to the singer. A few years back she debuted her hit single No One. Alicia Keys appears on the new 50 Cent single New Day. There is also a solo version of the song by Alicia Keys.

The album is estimated to sell 200,00-225,000 units in the first week. Rick Ross appeared on 106 & Park yesterday to promote the new album and debut many of the album's tracks.
