2010 Music Preview:2010 R&B And Soul Music Upcoming Album Releases – 2010 looks like it will be a very interesting year for R&B music fans with the return of Sade,Jaheim and Janet Jackson.Maxwell and Beyonce are also schedule to release new albums this year.You can check out the upcoming releases after the jump.
* Ollusion by Omarion : check Ollusion review here.
*Soldier of Love by Sade : the queen is back.
*Another Round by Jaheim : can he regain his status as a R&B prince? The first single from the project “Ain’t Leavin Without You,” is decent but kind of timid for a big comeback.
*The Love & War MasterPeace by Raheem DeVaughn : if “Bulletproof,” his modern classic featuring rapper Ludacris is an indication of what is on this album,it could be a defining moment for Raheem DeVaughn.Classic in the making?
*New Amerykah Part 2 by Erykah Badu : Erykah ‘No one can do Badu like you do.’
*Still Standing by Monica : make or break project for this R&B princess,the title song “Still Standing” was good enough to turn it into a hit CD,but its leak was poorly managed by her team.Nonetheless with a hit reality show on BET,we can expect the album to be well promoted.
*Angels Advocate by Mariah Carey : a new life for Carey’s “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” 2008 flop but I don’t see it doing much better.Her duet with Ne-Yo is a good first single though.
*Raymond vs. Raymond by Usher : can Usher confess his way back to the top of the charts? I am not sure because this is 2010 not 2004.
*Body by Jamie Foxx : Jamie is a good entertainer so expect this to be more about entertainment than artistry.
*Bionic by Christina Aguilera : she is a pop artist with an urban edge but it seems she lost her mojo.
*Love? by Jennifer Lopez : first single “Louboutins” flopped on the charts,this project doesn’t exactly smell like a big comeback.
Other 2010 Releases
*blackSUMMERS’night by Maxwell : if it is as good as the first part of his trilogy,2010 will belong to him RnB wise.
*Keyshia Cole fourth studio album : Cole rarely disappoints so it should be good.
*Love King by The-Dream : will it be his last album?
*Pulse by Toni Braxton : she still got it but the public seems a little bit tired of her music.
*Janet Jackson eleventh studio album : her most recent single “Make Me” performed well on the charts,so with the right songs she could do well with this CD.
*The Remedy by Jagged Edge : Slip-N-Slide Records debut for this once promising R&B group.
*FleshTones by Kelis : the album’s first single “Acapella,” is not really impressive this could spell flop for the “Milkshake” singer.
*Honey Bee by Beyoncé : the title is not final but it looks like Bee will be doing what she does best here.With a little bit more artistry things would be perfect.
*The Pussycat Dolls third studio album : enigma from a group that is fading.
