MUSIC WORLD: Sade; Usher; Shyne; Curren$y
Sade‘s new album, Soldier of Love, has sold 500K units in its first week and captured the #1 Worldwide Album slot! Congrats! As I predicted when the album leaked, having full access to the tracks early did not effect the album sales in the least.
So I guess Usher has a sense of humor. His outfit (and lackluster) performance this weekend at the All-Star Game in Dallas has been made of fun of by EVERYONE including his ex-wife.
So Shyne has had an interesting year. After being released from prison, he was deported back to Haiti with the quickness. It appeared he had little (or no) support from Diddy who we ALL know he took that charge for. Anywho, things are back on the up & up.
Shyne has reportedly signed a 7-Figure deal with Def Jam! After being locked up for 8 years, I know he’s got some stories to tell. He’s recording in London. Diddy should be shaking in his Louis boots… *take that, take that*
Finally, the underground wonder, Curren$y may have a new label home. He was first signed to No Limit in 2005. Then Young Money Entertainment until 2007. He gets mucho love from artists like Mos Def and Jay Electronica and there are rumors they have started a group together called Center Edge Territory.
Well Rap Radar posted a pic of of Curren$y with a Roc-A-Fella chain around his neck. Peep it below.
So is he signed to Roc-A-Fella now?? Does the label still exist?? Only time will tell.
