Singer Chris Brown released a new mixtape to get fans ready for his upcoming album “Royalty”. The R&B star shared a 34-track mixtape, titled, “Before The  Party”, via social media today. The project features guest appearances from Rhianna, Fetty Wrap, Wale and French Montana, according to Complex. “Before The Party” comes less than a month before Brown’s next studio album “Royalty”, which will be released on Dec. 18. The album is now available for pre-order. The album is named after Brown’s 1-year-old daughter. Singer Erykah Badu made timelines bling with the release of her mixtape “But You Cain’t Use My Phone” on iTunes today. The phone-themed project finds @fatbellybella cruising on different slow jams that pay homage to her hit “Tyrone”. The singer released her own version of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” titled “Cel U Lar Device” and the original track “Phone Down” and brought back New Edition’s 1984 classic “Mr. Telephone Man” as well.  Drake returned the favor by rapping on “U Used To call Me”.

Badu’s new release will be exclusively on iTunes and streaming on Apple Music for a week before hitting other digital retailers and streamers on Dec. 4. “But U Cain’t Use My Phone” marks the first project since 2010’s “New Amerykah Part Two (Return Of The Ankn).
