New Albums: Kanye West and Nicki Minaj
Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Kanye West’s highly anticipated album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is finally here. There are thirteen new songs on the album, and each one of them is single-ready. Admittedly, there are some that are better than others, but I’ll let you decide that for yourself.
This is West’s first album since 808s & Heartbreak was released in 2008, and also the first since the whole Taylor Swift debacle. I don’t know, If I were a gambler, I’d bet that he loves the publicity, and that, in the long run, the situation probably helped sales.
Though none of the three singles have broken the top 10 on the Billboard charts yet, my guess is that they will soon, especially since the release of the album. Check it out!
Nicki Minaj – Pink Friday
I almost didn’t listen to this album because of Nicki Minaj’s shameless plug of it at the AMAs on Sunday. However, people have been talking about it endlessly, so, here I am.
It’s been awhile since there’s been a female rapper who’s had a lot of success, hasn’t there? Although, it seems funny to say that Nicki Minaj has had “a lot” of success, considering Pink Friday is her first solo album. She’s been featured in a lot of songs these days, but she makes her debut now with this album.
After listening to Pink Friday, I realize that Nicki Minaj can rap, but she can sing too. She mixes things up in thirteen tracks. Check it out!
