Rumors that Beyoncé is planning to release a second surprise album have been surrounding the web lately. It all started because a memo with a confirmation of this release was leaked earlier this week. In that memo we could see that the new album would be some kind of deluxe edition of her latest record with some new tracks and a few remixes and features from singers like Rihanna, Justin Timberlake or Nicki Minaj.
Yesterday Queen B shut the rumors down and posted a photo on her social media explaining that this was just a re-release of the album with two new tracks, four remixes and more. Check out all the new material that this Platinum Edition will include below! Continue reading →
I finally got time to listen to Michael Jackson‘s posthumous album Xscape. The songs don’t have a strong connection between each other, it’s more like it was a compilation album. I guess it’s because the demos they used are from different eras. Like I said in the post I did when the album was announced, the only thing I don’t like is the cover, that picture is awful! They could’ve used any other Michael photo for the cover.
As I predicted, the original demos are way better than the new “modernized” versions, thank god they included them in the album! I really like the single version of Love Never Felt So Good with Justin Timberlake though.
Yesterday Michael Jackson‘s duet with Justin TimberlakeLove Never Felt So Good was released and I like it a lot! I wasn’t very in favor of this project, but I like the stuff that have been coming out so far. I loved the song that was leaked last month and shares the album title Xscape and I like this duet with JT.
Album producer and Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid said that the album will consist on previously unreleased songs recorded by the King of Pop. He says the songs have been “contemporized”, which I hated, but then I was so happy to find out they’re releasing the original versions with the deluxe edition!
The other day I posted my favorite hits from the first half of the past decade. Now is time to choose the songs that made me crazy from 2006 to 2010! Again I will only include one song per artist so it’s fair to everyone!
