This week we have two albums by former bad boys Eric Benet and Bobby Brown. The veteran singers have soften their public persona over the course of the years, while dropping new records that do not attempt to jump on current music trends.
The pipeline for new albums is hitting a bottleneck as artists wait for the summer and end of the year to release new studio albums. In addition, musicians are giving away more free mixtapes than dropping commercial albums. This week we have one R&B project hitting stores, Angela Johnson's 'Revised Edited & Flipped'.
R&B singer/songwriter Arika Kane released her 2nd studio album on April 17th titled Substance. Dubbed one of the latest “blue-eyed soul” singers to hit the music world, the Connecticut native is the first artist on BSE Recordings.
Starting the year off strong, Kevin Cossom is finally gearing to release his much-hyped follow-up to the 2009 project with the second installment of his ‘Hook vs Bridge’ EP. After much delay and many pushbacks, the singer/songwriter will be releasing the project in just a matter of weeks, on April 18th.
Ryan Leslie created a buzz last year when he released the first track "Glory," from his highly anticipated third studio album 'Les Is More.' Even with the hype, the Grammy nominated producer/entertainer pushed his release date back about a year, finally confirming the drop date for June 5th, 2012 on Twitter.
