New R&B/Pop Releases: November 2008 Albums Recapped

While 2008 is almost over, there are still a number of highly anticipated R&B albums being released over the next two months and Singersroom has you covered with a recap of release dates, tracklistings, and recent pushbacks/changes. Unleashing what looks to be another hit album Beyonce er Sasha Fierce is releasing “I Am…Sasha Fierce” this month accompanied by new music from Deborah Cox, Shontelle, T-Pain, Christina Aguilera, Seal, Slim (of 112) and Jaheim. (View tracklistings, release dates, and more below) First up during a month that we give thanks, which as of this week may be the “change we need!,” is Christina Aguilera. Surprising as it may be, it has been ten years since the singer known for belting out hits like “Beautiful,” “Ain’t No Other Man,” “Dirty” and “What A Girl Wants” was first introduced to the world on the top 10 hit “Genie in a Bottle.” Releasing “Keeps Gettin’ Better: A Decade of Hits” Christina Aguilera recaps the first leg of her Grammy Award-winning career while also dishing up a taste of new music from her next studio album due in 2009. Unleashing his third studio album entitled “Thr33 Ringz” led by the singles “Can’t Believe It” and “Freeze” T-Pain caps off Nov. 11, a release date he shares with Aguilera and Deborah cox, who releases “The Promise.” “Thr33 Ringz,” named after the star’s “Ringmaster” moniker, features Ludacris, Akon, T.I., Kanye West, Raheem DeVaughn, Musiq Soulchild, Diddy, Mary J. Blige and DJ Khaled. Arguably one of the most anticipated releases of the year, Beyonce slides in Nov. 18 with “I Am…Sasha Fierce,” the ‘Cadillac Records” star’s third studio album. Led by the singles “If I Were A Boy” and “Single Ladies” Beyonce takes what she calls a personal direction with the followup to her 2006 hit album “B Day.” Barbadian beauty Shontelle hits the U.S. with the release of “Shontelligence,” the star’s debut album led by the popular single “T-Shirt.” In a recent interview with Singersroom, Shontelle, who went to school with fellow recording star Rihanna, says “The one thing that separates me from a lot of artist is that I bring a lot more of my West Indian background to my music. I would most compare myself to someone like Wyclef. He can really flip it or somebody like Lauryn Hill where they know how to flip it.” Adding to an already packed Nov.18, Slim of 112 steps forward with his debut album “Loves Crazy.” Led by the hit single “So Fly,” the former “Cupid” singer establishes his own lane amongst R&B crooners with help from Yung Joc, Slim Thug, Ryan Leslie and Faith Evans. Wrapping up November, R&B balladeer Jaheim recaps classic records like “Anything,” “Put That Woman First” and “Could It Be” on one disc entitled “Classic Jaheim Vol. 1.” November 2008 Releases* by release date.
