Drake was supposed to release his next album, “Take Care,” on October 25th, however the sophomore album has been delayed. He explained on his site:
“So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me.”
Hopefully the extra wait is worth it!
John Mayer has cancelled shows and delayed his next album after announcing he has granuloma. Granuloma is an unflamed nodule near his vocal chords.
“Born and Raised is complete as far as music recording, song selection, and in some cases mixing, but because of this condition I couldn’t finish singing on several of the tracks,” John wrote on his Tumblr page about his upcoming album.
“This means the record will be released next year instead of this fall or winter,” he added.
Today was supposed to be the first day of Lil’ Wayne’s year-long jail sentence after the rapper plead guilty to attempted possession of a weapon in the second degree. As andPOP has already reported, Lil Wayne’s sentence start date has been delayed due to the rapper requiring “emergency” dental surgery.
However, “Weezy” didn’t leave home before saying a final good-bye to all of his fans.
“I’m out this bitch. To all my fans, my real fans, I really, really, really truly love you. I love you with all of me, for real. I’ll probably be loving everything else because I love you so much. Thank you from the bottom [of my heart]. Do not forget about me ’cause I will forever think about you, and I cannot wait for you to see me again. I’m out,” said the rapper as he choked back tears.
Lil’ Wayne has had a tough year. As if gun possession charges weren’t enough for the dreadlocked rap artist, his forthcoming album Rebirth has been delayed once again due to multiple setbacks.
Fans have already been subjected to a delay from its original release date, and this time it has been pushed back to a release date of February 1, 2010. According to perezihilton.com, this date is also very near to his sentencing date for his criminal charges.
Amid questions regarding the legitimacy of Lil’ Wayne’s album, Young Money’s Shanell had this to say:
Fans of Lil Wayne will have to wait a little longer for the rapper’s rock-influenced album, “Rebirth.”
The record, which was originally slated for release in early April before being moved to May and then to June, has now been pushed back to July 21.
The latest delay is reportedly to give Universal Records more time to get permission for the samples used on the album, Lil Wayne’s seventh solo effort. Confirmed guest stars on “Rebirth” include Avril Lavigne, Aubrey “Drake” Graham, Fall Out Boy and Lenny Kravitz.
