Upcoming Fall Releases (that I am sooo looking forward to!)
The Foreign Exchange – Love In Flying Colors – Release Date: Sept. 24th. Nicolay and Phonte are back with their fourth studio album release since 2010’s “Authenticity”. I absolutely love this team and the story behind how these two joined forces and became the dynamic group they are today. Their combination of Soul, Hip Hop, R&B and Alternative Rock, leaves room for everyone to enjoy their music. FE fans know that Nicolay’s undeniably infectious tracks, and Phonte’s smooth vocals, never disappoint. There will be guest features as well on this album (which is expected with The Foreign Exchange experience). I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us with “Love in Flying Colors”. The awesome promotional trailers for the album as seen on their website, wets the appetite for what is sure to be another FE banger! From what I’ve heard so far, I know this album will be in constant rotation on my iPod for MONTHS.
Amel Larrieux – Ice Cream Everyday – Release Date: Oct. 1st. We haven’t heard from this lovely songbird in six years, so when she released her single “Afraid” this summer, I was extremely happy to hear new music from her. If the lead single is any indication, “Ice Cream Everyday” promises to be a wonderful collection of Soul and R&B that we have missed since Ms. Larrieux stepped away from the scene. We all missed her, and we welcome her back with open arms.
Slakah The Beatchild – Love Movement Vol. 2 – Release Date: TBD – Now, I have been anticipating this album ever since I heard his previous 2008 release of the vibilicious (is that a word??) “Love Movement Vol. 1”, along with all of Slakah’s fans, I have been waiting impatiently for the follow-up to that masterpiece of beats, rhymes and rhythms. Well according to Slakah, it is on its way! Yayy! We just don’t know exactly when yet, but possibly this fall. Hopefully it will see the light of day REAL soon. In the meantime, I will just continue to vibe to Vol. 1 and the great “Something Forever” until he blesses us with Vol. 2. I will continue to wait…(sigh)
