18 10 2010

Yesterday, controversial MC Kanye West released his proposed album cover for his upcoming fifth LP. His album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy has been heavily talked about; from the moving portrait of “Power”, the lengthly and unique album title, the red suited performances, and now the album cover.

Girls, Girls, Girls: Chick of the Week 11/30 – Sade Adu

30 11 2009

I’m taking yall back with today’s Chick of the Week with the beautiful lead singer of Sade. Sade is hails from London, England and is of Nigerian and British descent. From the mid 80’s to the late 90’s, Sade flooded the Soul/Jazz/R&B game melodic hits and a distinctive sound. Her smooth voice and pretty face set her aside from other female singers during that era. Though it’s been over 9 years since her band’s put out an album, she is still recognized as a music icon and is still hot. She’s working on a new album Soldier of Love (album cover inside) that is due out February 2010.

Got Ya Covered: Clipse – Til The Casket Drops (Album Cover)

Clipse – Til The Casket Drops
clipse til the casket drops album cover
The Clipse collab with New York artist KAWS once again for the album cover of their third LP Til The Casket Drops. KAWS is also responsible for creating three of their single covers and also the cover of the Complex Magazine where the duo was featured. While I’m a fan of animated album covers and KAWS’ work, this one is average. In my opinion it’s ideal for a single or a album promo, but as an official album cover it could’ve been hotter. Regardless, I know the album will be a banger. Til The Casket Drops will be in stores December 8th.

Chris Brown Grafitti Album cover
Yesterday the album cover for Chris Brown’s comeback album leaked and has people talking about his fit on the album cover. Chris Brown even spoke about people getting on his tights on the cover via his Twitter stating that he knows fashion which is why he wore em. I’m still confused on the point of the little cartoons in the corner. Grafitti will be in stores December 15th, and will include CB’s latest club joint with Lil Weezy “I Can Transform Ya”.

Rihanna Rated R Album Cover
Rihanna’s album cover hit the net earlier today and since then it’s caused controversy since then like her lead single “Russian Roulette”. The cover shows a darker side of Rihanna, and also has some people thinking there’s a hidden message behind it (all my conscious peoples know what I’m gettin’ at).Regardless she definitely switched it up from her “Pon De Replay” days. Rated R will be in stores on November 23rd.
