Juicy J says “Stay Trippy’s” follow-up is slated to be released this year.
Juicy J has announced that he is slated to release a new album this year.
Juicy announced this project through Twitter, an announcement that follows last year’s Stay Trippy.
Stay Trippy was released in August 2013. The album features Project Pat, Justin Timberlake and Wiz Khalifa.
The album received a 3 out of 5 rating by HipHopDX.
“Some Rap is tailor made for headphone listening and careful analysis of every word,” HipHopDX wrote at the time. “Then there are songs that are meant to be played loud in public settings, and the lyrics don’t matter so much. If you haven’t already figured it out, Stay Trippy is the latter. And for as much flack as it receives, there is entertainment value there and it serves its purpose as a soundtrack to the ‘trippy’ lifestyle. Still, existing within that world that overlooks lyrical competence or any moral deficiencies, there are enough instances where the veteran’s effortless style starts veering too close to effort-less. But it doesn’t seem like the veteran will be going away anytime soon.”
Beyonce drops Part 5 of her Self-Titled mini-documentary series that gives a glimpse into her fifth self-titled LP, Beyonce. In this five-and-a-half minute (we’re seeing a pattern here)episode titled “Honesty,” the “XO” singer gets personal and talks about having to carry the same torch now of her previous inspirations. “I feel like I’m having to tap into a lot of my life experiences to pull inspiration, and I feel like I’m opening a lot in these videos and showing a lot of sides to me that only a few people have seen.”
This episode also takes fans inside the studio as Yonce puts together the ballad “Rocket,” which she co-wrote with Justin Timberlake and Miguel. “It was a moment in the studio where I didn’t want to stop singing it, and I just kinda zoned out,” she explains of finding the melody. “I don’t think I would have done it back then. I don’t think I would have been confident enough. I would have been too afraid of what other people thought, but I kinda dropped that fourth wall and I did it.”
Justin Timberlake’s ‘The 20/20 Experience’ leads the year-end Top Billboard 200 Albums chart, the first time a solo male artist has crowned the tally since 2005. That year, 50 Cent’s “The Massacre” (on Shady/Aftermath/Interscope Records) claimed the prize.
‘The 20/20 Experience’ (RCA) debuted at No. 1 on the weekly Billboard 200, selling 968,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. At press time, it remains the largest single sales week of the year for an album, and reigns as the year’s best-selling title. It spent three weeks at No. 1 and was followed by sequel ‘The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2),’ which debuted at No. 1 on the Oct. 19 chart.
‘The 20/20 Experience’ spent 18 non-consecutive weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart (all during the chart year). The album spun-off the singles “Suit & Tie,” featuring Jay Z (a No. 3 hit on the Billboard Hot 100), “Mirrors” (No. 2) and “Pusher Love Girl” (No. 64).
Timberlake’s No. 1 placing follows two years where Adele’s ’21′ ruled the roost. The English singer’s XL/Columbia set marked the first release to go back to back as the year’s top album since 1983 and 1984, when Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ (Epic) was No. 1. While she may not be No. 1, Adele is still present on the year-end tally. “21″ is, coincidentally, No. 21 on Top Billboard 200 Albums.
As for Timberlake, this is his first turn at No. 1 on the year-end Top Billboard 200 Albums as a solo artist. As a member of ‘N Sync, he was No. 1 in 2000 with “No Strings Attached” (Jive).
At No. 2 on the year-end Top Billboard 200 Albums is Taylor Swift’s 2012 release ‘Red’ (Big Machine/BMLG), followed by One Direction’s ‘Take Me Home’ (No. 3, Syco/Columbia), Mars’ ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ and Mumford & Sons’ ‘Babel’ (No. 5, Gentleman of the Road/Glassnote).
Billboard’s year-end Billboard 200 is based on chart performance during the chart year that began with last year’s Dec. 1 chart and ended with the Nov. 30, 2013, tally.
T.I. and Justin Timberlake came together on a huge hit back in back in 2006 with “My Love,” and it looks like they may have another big collaboration in the works. Tip randomly showed up at the red carpet for the new Hunger Games film, and spoke to Clevver News about The JT feature, his acting career, and a party he may or may not have attended at Bieber’s house.
The ATL rapper began by listing the acting projects he’s got in the pipeline. “Right now, I’m currently filming the third season of ‘House of Lies’ with Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, and I’m co-starring along with Mekhi Phifer, and we’re just having a phenomenal time,” he said. “It premiers in January.”
When asked about his work with Justin Timberlake, Tip made sure to confirm that there was a record coming, but didn’t go into any more detail than that. “Well, you know, I just happen to have some,” said T.I. of new music with JT. “I just happen to have some, thank you for asking.”
As far as a recent party at the Biebz, T.I. was strangely tight-lipped about the festivities. “Well you know I will not have any mention of any of that,” he joked. “If I was there, I’m sure it was a good time, but I will not confirm or deny any allegations.”
it’s new music tuesday!!!!
remember to go out and support Justin’s latest collab “the woods” on the brand new Juicy J album which dropped today.
The last time I wrote you an open letter, it was in January and I promised that it would be a “Big 2013.” Since then, from The Grammys to the release of the first part of The 20/20 Experience to the crowd’s response at the VMAs, it’s been a wild ride. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have.
This letter is to tell you that we’re not done…Not even close.
On Sept 30th, the second half of The 20/20 Experience, “The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2,” comes out. Since all these songs were written together over a year ago, it’s been so hard to wait this long to release them. I can’t wait for all of you to hear The 20/20 Experience in full.
So… below is a short clip of the recording of the experience so you can get a feel of what those 20 days were like. It was like no other time I’ve ever had in the studio.
Catch your breath, TN Kids. We’ve still got the 3rd and 4th quarter to go. This is too much fun.
Justin Timberlake has responded to comments made by women’s rights group ‘Take Back The Night’ that he used its name without permission.
Over the weekend, it was reported that Timberlake could face legal action over the title of his new single, which began streaming on Friday (July 12), after the executive director of women’s rights group Take Back The Night claimed that he failed to ask permission to use their name.
Issuing a statement to Radar, Timberlake said: “Upon the release of my new single ‘Take Back The Night’, I was made aware of an organisation of the same name called The Take Back The Night Foundation.”
He added: “I wanted to take this opportunity to let all know that neither my song nor its lyrics have any association with the organisation. As I’ve learned more about The Take Back The Night Foundation, I’m moved by its efforts to stop violence against women, create safe communities and encourage respectful relationships for women – Something we all should rally around. It is my hope that this coincidence will bring more awareness to this cause.”
The original Take Back The Night has been in operation as a charitable foundation since 1999. It’s Executive Director Katherine Koestner said this week that its lawyers had been in touch with the singer’s representatives. “Everyone at Take Back The Night is really shocked, because normally we get asked when people want to use the name,” she said. “Normally entities as large as Justin Timberlake do very kind and thoughtful things to support our cause…The lyrics are definitely very sexual and not at all clearly anti-sexual violence. ‘Use me’, for example, is not a great phrase for anyone affiliated with the organisation.”
She added: “We tried to contact him through his website and got no answer. Then we sent him a letter Friday (July 12) from our legal counsel saying ‘You used our name without our permission’…They got back to us and said they’re sorry,” Koestner continued. “His agent said ‘Justin’s a good guy! He’s a family man!’ They claimed he’d never heard of us before he wrote that song. I don’t know what country he’s been in. I suppose it could have slipped off his radar screen somehow. Somebody working for him definitely messed up.”
The track is the first song to be taken from Justin Timberlake’s upcoming album ‘The 20/20 Experience – Part 2′, the second installment of ‘The 20/20 Experience’ which was released in March.
