Ludacris – Battle of the Sexes

In a recent MTV interview, Ludacris explained the reasoning behind his collaborative concept for his latest offering Battle of the Sexes. He mentioned how he felt that women in the industry needed more of an opportunity to get their music heard in the game today.

‘It’s such a male-dominated industry that I feel like females need more of a voice, so we wanted to hear more of what the hell they had to say,’ he explained. ‘With that being said, I went out and got women from the past, the present and the future – everyone from Lil Kim, Eve, Trina, Nicki Minaj. I got records where I’m talking about women and where women are talking back to me.’

The full tracklisting for the album is as follows:

1. Intro
2. How Low
3. My Chick Bad (feat. Nicki Minaj)
4. Everybody Drunk (feat. Lil Scrappy)
5. I Do It All Night
6. Sex Room (feat. Trey Songz)
7. I Know You Got a Man (feat. Flo Rida)
8. Hey Ho (feat. Lil’ Kim and Lil’ Fate)
9. Party No Mo’ (feat. Gucci Mane)
10. B.O.T.S. Radio (feat. I-20)
11. Can’t Live With You (feat. Monica)
12. Feelin’ So Sexy
13. Tell Me a Secret (feat. Ne-Yo)
14. My Chick Bad Remix (feat. Diamond, Trina, and Eve)

Luda excitedly announed via his Twitter page earlier this week that the lead single from the project ‘How Low’ had already reached platinum status, writing ‘Just got handed my platinum plaque from def jam.’ 2010 marks the rapper’s tenth year with Def Jam; his major label debut Back for the First Time was released by the label in October 2000. Battle of the Sexes is scheduled for release on March 9th 2010 on DTP/Def Jam after being pushed up a week ‘due to the anticipation.’

Let the battle commence!

New Rihanna Album in November?

Two and a half years have passed since Bajan superstar Rihanna has released an album. Following the huge success of her last album ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ and the controversial domestic abuse incident involving former partner Chris Brown, the world has eagerly awaited the singer’s next release.

Having appeared recently in Jay-Z’s street anthem ‘Run This Town,’ it is no real surprise that a new album may well be on the horizon. Def Jam is yet to confirm a release, although new graphics appeared on the singer’s official website along with the words ‘The Wait Is Ova’ and the date November 23 ’09.

It would appear that Rihanna fans will be able to expect a project from the singer on the aforementioned date, although as of yet there is no concrete information as to the nature of the release.
