After much promotion on Twitter over the weekend, singer Willow Smith released her debut album “Ardipithecus” on Rock Nation. The project follows a sting of singles and EPs, including the 15-year-old’s 2011 hit “Whip My Hair”. Most of the album was written and produced by Willow alone, although her older brother Trey Smith along with JABS appear in the credits. The album can be downloaded on iTunes. With the help of the breakup anthem “I Don’t F*** With You” featuring E-40, rapper Big Sean has reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts with his third studio album “Dark Sky Paradise”. Collaborating with Kanye West, DJ Mustard, Drake and John Legend, the Detroit native deepened his imprint on 2015 with “Blessings” and “One Man Can Change The World”, featuring West and Legend. The single was nominated for a Best/Rap Sung collaboration Grammy. No doubt, there’s more to come. Rapper Nicki Minaj’s 2014 Sir Mix A Lot flip “Anaconda” has become her highest charting single to date, now, the original version, which includes some unheard bars, has hit the internet thanks to an upcoming compilation from one of the song’s producers, AnonXmous. The track was leaked yesterday to promote his mixtape “Hallucinagens”, which gives an interesting glimpse into the life of a pop song. Some verses are the same, others are new, and yet others are from the rapper’s verse on Ciara’s 2013 single “I’m Out”, suggesting that the song must have been in the works since then.
