New Music Monday – Is That Right…?

Being ahead of the curve for once, I was anxiously looking forward to waking up this morning and downloading new music albums.  In the back of my head I pondered the reason for the shift in new music releases, but it wasn’t until I was discussing the Monday release date with a guy I work with that I decided to investigate further…

Below is what I was able to dig up regarding the Monday release date for new albums by Kanye, Luda, & The Killers.  Additionally, both the Kanye and Luda albums are on sale today for $5 on iTunes and The Killers album is $4 on Amazon.  (Sorry about that bad info)

NEW YORK (Billboard) – New albums by the Killers, Ludacris and Kanye West will be released a day earlier than planned, on Monday November 24, to capitalize on the Thanksgiving shopping weekend, their Island Def Jam label said. 

Each project has already spawned a hit. The Killers’ “Human,” drawn from the album “Day & Age,” is No. 6 on Billboard’s Modern Rock chart. 

Ludacris’ “One More Drink” co-starring T-Pain is No. 34 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs; it comes from “Theater of the Mind.”

West’s “Love Lockdown,” from “808s & Heartbreak,” has already peaked at No. 3 on the flagship Hot 100 single chart.

88-Keys – The Death Of Adam

Released in October, this new album is pretty good.  It’s kind of like N.E.R.D. without all the yelling.  Their track ‘stay up!’ is the most re-known but the rest of the album is, in my opinion, even better.

iTunes has some samples, but you can Click Here to hear all the tunes!

Kanye West – Arrested In England – A Different Kind Of Lockdown

Allegedly, our boi Yeezy has been arrested for assault in England after another paparazzi fiasco.

Best Week Ever -OR- Worst Week Ever ???
Are these feelings of sympathy I have even warranted?  I mean, part of me thinks he’s had a rough 12 months with his mother’s passing, but then he doesn’t really seem to be shaken by that anymore.  He’s being featured in an upcoming Fader, is continually at the top of the billboards, recently launched a weezy search engine, yet he continually seems to be attracting more bitch assness from the media, leaked songs, etc.

Another Leaked Kanye Track – See You In My Nightmares (w/ Weezy)

It’s kind of like when you buy that BIG GIFT for yourself for Christmas three weeks early and the rest of the month you’re just like ‘ho-hum, whatever’.  Not the song of course, although it’s just OK – I guess I’m just no longer surprised at how many songs are leaked these days. 

Not the official video by any means, but I’ll update as available – promise!

SMOKIN HOT – Kanye’s Heartless Video

WOW – What an amazing music video! Like most things of top notch quality, it was made in Hong Kong.
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Here’s an excerpt from Mr. West’s site on how they put it together:

This video was rotoscoped.  We recorded real people and then had 65 animators in Hong Kong hand draw over every cell.  Inspired by the movie “American Pop”.

Personally, I think the cinema of the video is very similar to that of Bebe’s Kids – which is fine b/c that was a classic movie in 1992.  Additionally, let me be the first one to say that ol’ rotoscoped girl with the teal lips is fine as hell!
