Album Cover: Eve – ‘Lip Lock’

Lip Lock

Eve gets up close and personal on the cover of Lip Lock, her first album in over a decade. The Philly rapper rocks a metallic lip and heavy eye makeup on the black-and-white artwork. She only wanted to show her face to represent the album’s different moods.

“I don’t want people to take [Lip Lock] too seriously,” she tells Billboard. “I’m not trying to relive any moments of my life. I’m in a new place in my life. I’m almost a new artist. It’s a fun record.”

Due May 14, the 12-song album features appearances from Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, Swizz Beatz, Dawn Richard, and Cobra Starship’s Gabe Saporta, who is featured on the first single “Make It Out This Town.”

What do you think of Eve’s cover art? Weigh in below.

    @caribbean native, please, Eve doesn’t even wanna be Rihanna, besides Rihanna will never be on Eve her level so stop the stupid comparisons and focus on EVE.

    Eve, the album cover looks gorgeous!, I can’t wait to hear your new stuff.

    @QueenBeyonce, Eve will never lower her self to Rihanna’s level, if that’s what you mean, then you’re right.

    xSTEV3N Reply:

    @caribbean native, No, it doesn’t look like Forehead Fenty her cover because there are clearly differences and who exactly are you calling a flop stan? because I don’t ”stan” for Eve, I’m curious about her new music and I thought your comment was delusional and it still is along with all of your other comments. I’m already laying on the couch so I don’t need none of your seats. I came here for EVE in the first place so I don’t have to deal with anything besides your hating comments.

    I’m looking forward to it, but I’m a little bit worried on how the album will do. Kreayshawn released ‘Breakfast’ and ‘Go Hard’ (which both singles failed to chart) and the album flopped with 3,900 in its first week(No Promo). Brandy released Put It Down which reached #65, the album sold less than 100,000 in its first week.(Major Promo)and Kesha released Die Young which reached #2 and the album sold less than 100,00 copies in its first week.(Major Promo) So what if ‘Make It Out This Town’ fails to chart? How will the album do? With No Promo or Major Promo? Exactly….

    [Reply]

    Eve of destruction Reply:

    @Kali, STOP being so pessimistic. First of all Eve is a FEMALE RAPPER. Don’t compare apples and oranges. Rap albums usually don’t sell as much and as fast as other contemporary/genre albums. Who the hell buys a kesha’s album nowadays?? and WTF is a kreyshawn?? name me ONE hit she’s had like EVER?? She’s a nobody. Both their albums got terrible reviews. Total pop trash. Kesha is a single seller like MANY artists in this industry. Kesha only had internet promo. she didn’t go on tv promoting it like she was supposed to. Brandy’s album is amazing!! A classic. the songs are deep but do you think this generation cares? Plus Brandy was not as missed as some artists. Her music wasn’t as missed anymore after a while because so MANY RnB singers surfaced and we’ve got Beyonce, Rihanna, and flops like keyshia cole, etc.. Look at Justin Timberlake.. He left the game for 7 years on a good note. He left us with a CLASSIC album. He was unique. He went HAM with the promo,he was sorely missed. He slayed with a 12 songs album which i think is overrated even. Eve just needs to do what Justin did. He was everywhere. SNL, 106 PARK, Vevo, heavy internet promo, jimmy, Ellen, his songs are featured on tv commercials and ads, interviews, etc.. he bombarded us. He made sure he was in our faces wether we liked it or not. If Eve has the right promo, drops a couple of videos and features, she will slay. Hope for the best. Eve has her OWN record label now called Blondie Rockwell Inc. Whatever she’ll make, it’s more money for her, plus Do NOT underestimate her. Just wait and be positive. Lip Lock will be a classic. A real rap/hip hop lover doesn’t look at sales but the content of the album. the lyrical content especially. Unless u’d rather have fake pop trash “rap” album selling 800K only in the US with weak fake ass music only meant to appeal to this new generation of brainwashed illiterate kids. ;)

    Kali Reply:

    @Eve of destruction, I’m just so anxious because there’s like almost 1 month away for the release of her album and I’m really nervous on how ‘Make It Out This Town’ will do. I’m seeing a lot of legends trying to make a comeback and it isn’t working but JT broke the “curse”, but as a female artist, I hope EVE can do the same. But I was disappointed in the fact that she’s premiering the video on Vevo which I was hoping for a EOnline premiere or something bigger. Vevo blocked ‘She Bad Bad’ and there was NO banner for the song either. But then again, it’s just a buzz single, so we’ll see *fingers crossed*, and I swear radio BETTER play the song. But for JT, I heard he used payola or a radio deal so they can overplay ‘Suit And tie’ but Idk…the music business is shady, so I can’t say much. But hopefully she will do radio promo, tv promo, online promo, shows, etc. etc. LIPLOCK MAY 14 BITCHES ♥♥♥! And stop calling me pessimistic, I was just having a nerve wreck, leave me the fuck alone lol xD

    Eve of destruction Reply:

    @Kali, My apologies if i sounded rude. it’s all good. lol and everything you just said is true. VEVO BETTER NOT BLOCK make it out of this town. and Eve better go HAM this month with the promo. At least that’s what she said. This song has great potential of being in the top 10 on billboard HOT 100 if promoted right. But i’m also praying for my girl Eve. I’m crossing my fingers that she’ll make a triumphant return with this album:D

    @Kali, Oh and Make it out of this town has a banner on itunes now on the Hip Hop charts. Seeing that the video will be released THIS friday, i think it’ll give the song a major boost!! :D

I OWN u. every thing i say makes you MAD AND PRESSED AF!!! :D. when will nicki be addressed as “GRAMMY WINNING ARTIST…”.. WHEN?? Killing careers?? is that why she doesn’t have a grammy? RR not being plat in the US? selling korea made tutu’s at KMART??

  36. Q2A

    I used to like EVE when she was representing sisitas from around the way. But she a sellout to her race and brothers in particular. Now she loving some white dude. WTF! Brothers not good enough. She’s just like the all the rest of them hoes who don’t know their own history. How in the hell can a black women from the inner city lay down with the former slaveowner’s lineage and let him f–k her and call it love. She has got to be one of the dumbest b–tches around. Stupid b–tch this white man is not going to marry you. All she is to this white dude is his black f–k toy. One he gets tired of the black ass thrill he going to send her ass packing back to the hood. He is not going to marry her I personally am not going to be buying her fake ass album from this sellout chick. Eve has no real talent except working the pole. Her music sucks and I can’t stand the bitches like her who lust after the white d–k and betray their race. I really do wish the dumb ass hoes would wake the f–k up and learn some black history.
