Did Beyonce start a new trend when she dropped her new album on iTunes back in December with no promotion? Maybe and I like it! I feel like when an artist teases their album and previews their new songs, it kind of ruins the surprise! And if the album isn’t that great (Britney Spears comes to mind) I think it can end up affecting album sales. You give fans a chance to say ‘no thanks’ before the record even comes out!
That being said, Kid Cudi surprised his fans when he dropped Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon early Tuesday morning! The “Day N Nite” rapper had recently announced that he had a 10-track project ready to go, even showing off the art work, but no one knew when it would be released.
Cudi tweeted this out to his massive Twitter followers:
The date says April 29 2014 but thats a glitch. Or is it 😉 ALBUM AVAILABLE NOW —–> http://t.co/jjPEMjmyGh

So what do you guys think of this surprise? You can head over to iTunes to purchase Satellite Flight now, but in the meantime, let’s go back with this one! Still on of my FAVS!
