divaTunes: 'Return of Simba' J. Cole

J. Cole returns to his critically acclaimed Lion King-inspired series with “Return of Simba,” a warm-up track to his first official single, which will drop this week.

“Let me show you how to move in a room full of dudes who don’t got a fu**in’ clue how to do this… I’ma be here for a while, none of these clowns can hurt me.” 

The track is produced by Elite and Cole himself.  I love this, but my favorite one is “Grown Simba.”  Who’s ready to hear music from his new album?! I know I am…it’s taking too long.  Until then, warm up with this one:

J. Cole Set To Drop Album Single Next Week


We all loved his mixtapes The Come Up and Friday Night Lights and now after much anticipation J. Cole will begin promo for his first album. Geared to take flight next week this young and ambitious rapper from Fayetteville, North Carolina (AKA Da Ville) says,

“We finally married a single and we picked it, so that’s next week. There’s no more holdup,” 

“As of next week, you’ll see me on full-fledged promo mode.”

Keeping it cool at the BET nominations conference J. Cole denied access to the title of the album only saying,

“It’s summertime, it’s incredible. It samples one of my favorite albums from my growing up experience.”

There’s just something about dropping an album in the summer. I’ve been waiting too long for J.Cole’s album and with all the anticipation I hope he delivers.

Will you be buying J.Cole’s album this summer???

Roc Nation: Rihanna Does Not Have Poor Ticket Sales

We reported to you the other day that reports were saying that Rihanna’s tickets for her “LOUD” tour were not selling. Well an industry insider has stepped forward with some facts about Rihanna’s ticket sales given by Live Nation to dismiss the allegations of low ticket sales.

Well known music analyst and blogger Bob Lefsetz  posted inside information he received from Live Nation chairman Irving Azoff about Rihanna’s worldwide tickets sales.  After reading Bob’s finding Roc Nation stepped in and confirmed the numbers to dispel what the New York Post proclaimed earlier this week.

So here are the facts regarding Rihanna’s tour.

1. There are 56 sold out Rihanna dates in Europe.

2. 64% of tickets for Rihanna’s domestic shows have already been sold. And they’re selling at the rate of 700 a day.

3. Rihanna’s Boston show is four months out. Projections say that 90% of the seats will be sold by showtime.  Also, the Post story said Rihanna needed to sale 15,000 tickets to break even, but Bob reports only 13,500 seats are available for sale.  And so far, Rihanna had sold 5,800 tickets for Boston, not the reported 3,700 tickets.

 

I personally wouldn’t attend a Rihanna concert because I feel she fails to put on a show and I would want my money’s worth, but I can’t speak for the rest of America because the girl IS selling.
