B.o.B Announces Sophomore Album Title

The forecast is looking cloudy for B.o.B. The Atlanta musician has selected a title for his sophomore album.

Fresh off performing in front of President Obama at a fundraiser in Los Angeles, Bobby Ray caught a flight back to ATL. He appeared on V103’s “The Ryan Cameron Show” on Tuesday, where he revealed Strange Clouds as the title. “‘Strange Clouds’ is the first single off of my sophomore album, actually titled Strange Clouds,” he announced.

The project, which serves as the follow-up to his Grammy-nominated debut B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray, is preceded by the single of the same name featuring Lil Wayne. The song went to iTunes on Tuesday and has already cracked the top 5.

He explained how the collaboration with Tunechi came together. “Wayne actually got on it pretty quick. It was a quick turnaround,” he shared. “We were kind of debating on it, but we just felt like this was the song that should go first. I feel really strong about it and I like to take my time with music.”

Jim Jonsin has also been in the studio with B.o.B, and opened about one of the reggae-flavored tracks they recorded called “Rule the World.” “One record has like a reggae vibe to it, hip-hop with some reggae,” the producer told Rap-Up.com. “It’s pretty big. I think that’s a possible single.”
