  1. dj ya man!

    Why would you even post this :’( it builds so much hype to “possible” great albums to come out when we really know that probably 90% of them are just going to get pushed back!

    @dj ya man!, Word, LOL I hope Em comes out this year, but I’ve BEEN fearing it won’t drop til next year…

  2. Pinoy

    Yeah U right. Most of those albums are going to get pushed back! Happy you didn’t put Dr.Dre’s Detox in that list cause that album is probably coming out the year 2050 when Dr.Dre is dead.

    [Reply]

  3. Chris

    Damn what a list. So many heavy hitters on there. I’m looking to get at least 10 of them. LOL at Detox. 2050? That soon. I was thinking 2070 earliest. At least my grandkids will get to hear it.

    “sietta.loves”

    Why do you gotta call out ciara’s name? she’s not even relevant to this post but you gotta throw the hate out there??

    Grow up. I feel extremely sorry for you if you live your life with that type of negativity towards other people-especially someone as ambitious and talented like ciara.

    usher, Alicia keys, Lady gaga, Britney Spears are on my top list to buy! I’ll prolly buy 2-3 singles from rihanna too.

    December 15
    Lupe Fuasco – Lasers
    not sure if Mary J. Blige and T-Pain will be out in ’09.

    @ An0thrDream

    Ciara is that you. Sweetie I don’t know who u think you are but I could care less if u feel sorry for me. I feel sorry that your album is still be sold at the nearest KFC. You just jealous at how people left you in the dust because you went Hollywood and now we know your a fake wannabe, rip-off, no-talent, and did I mention rip-off of Queen Beyonce! Hunny don’t you have to record Beyonce’s left-overs from Sasha Fierce. LOL, Give up Ciara you will never be Beyonce or Rihanna and you will never have the legs of the Goddess “Amerie”! Thats all. Anyway anybody notice how slow Alicia keys song is moving up the charts I see a flop in her future!

    R. Kelly is the best album to come out this year…

    And he’ back to the old Kellz which is even better.

    Usher too but I hope it’s better than his last and more like Confessions/8701…

    On the rap tip, can’t forget Young Jeezy, the rest I’ll just listen to the radio and download singles.
