New Music Out This Week: K-Ci & JoJo , Lorde, Nelly [VIDEO]
Another batch of new releases again with a mix of old and new artists alike. Also Justin Timberlake releases part 2 of his epic 20/20 album.
1.) K-Ci & JoJo: “My Brother’s Keeper” (their first album in five years): The brothers have a new record label and have seem to put their legal woes behind them. They are both very talented and I am sure hope that they can have lightning in a bottle with this latest release.
2.) Lorde (16-year-old New Zealand singer-songwriter Ella Yelich-O’Connor) ”Pure Heroine” -Even though some of her material seems on a much more adult level, she has a haunting voice and style that seems to suck people in. This will be interesting to see how any of her follow up songs do in the U.S.
3.) Nelly :“M.O.” (guests: Nicki Minaj, Pharrell, Nelly Furtado, 2 Chainz, Florida Georgia Line, T.I.) Nelly is back with a huge roster of people to help him out. Maybe Florida Georgia Line will help him have the success that he did with their re-mix with him.
4.) Justin Timberlake : “The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2″ (sequel to “The 20/20 Experience”; also “The Complete Experience,” containing both albums)
OTHER RELEASES OUT THIS WEEK:
-Joan Jett & The Blackhearts : “Unvarnished” (her first album in seven years; guests: Dave Grohl, Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!)
-Moby : “Innocents” (guests: Wayne Coyne, Cold Specks, Mark Lanegan, Damien Jurado, Skylar Grey, Inyang Bassey)
