50 Cent, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna

Universal Readies Super Monday Lineup

Universal Music Group is serving up a plentiful feast for Thanksgiving week. Some of the biggest names in music will all release their high-profile albums on the Monday before the holiday.

The recording giant has moved up the majority of its November 24 releases by one day to Monday, November 23, a day before the traditional Tuesday release. The shift extends across the Universal umbrella, including Interscope Geffen A&M, Universal Motown/Republic, and Island Def Jam. The new date will take advantage of the start of the holiday shopping season when customers flock to stores to stock up on gifts.

Rap-Up.com is first to reveal six of the albums that have been affected by the date change, making your purchasing decision even tougher.

50 Cent – Before I Self Destruct
Rihanna – TBD
Timbaland – Shock Value 2
Lady Gaga – The Fame Monster
Jay Sean – All or Nothing
Birdman – Pricele$$
