Cannon’s Countdown Fall Music Preview
5. Mary J Blige “My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act 1)” Out : November 21
At a confident young age of 40, Mary’s back to hit us with another fresh album. She’s one of the best artists in the game, and a true classic. For “My Life II…” she’s bringing back that vintage Mary sound, so you know it’s gonna be one you need to watch out for!
4. Dev “The Night The Sun Came Up” Due : November 1st
Between having a huge hit with “In The Dark”, Dev recently revealed that she’s pregnant. Congrats to her, and congrats to her first album getting a release date! Produced by The Cataracs, you can guarantee they’re going to be sippin on some slizzard with this album.
3. Rihanna “Untitled” Out : November 21
RiRi’s newest single “We Found Love” is busting through the charts, and you just have to respect her hustle! She’s already had nineteen top ten hits during her seven-year career, which makes her new album one of the most highly anticipated for the fall.
2. Kelly Clarkson “Stronger” Out : October 24th
The original American Idol is back with her fifth album, and it’s promising to bring a little bit of urban, country, pop and a dash of soul…sounds like a poppin album to me! Kelly’s “Mr. Know It All” is already bringing the heat on Cannon’s Countdown, so her album is set to be big!
1. Drake “Take Care” Out : October 24th
Easily my most anticipated album of the fall, and in the top three of the year, Drake is back with his second studio album. Justin Timberlake, Rick Ross, Nas, J Cole, Stevie Wonder AND Lil Wayne are all set to appear on the album, so you know that this is going to be one dope album! To top it off he’s hooked up with Quincy Jones (Michael Jackson Thriller and Bad) for this one. Sophomore slump? I don’t think so!
