Excited for Juice Wrld as well. Also TDE is supposed to be dropping something. Hoping it’s Kendrick, SZA, Isaiah Rashad, or Schoolboy Q, but it will probably be Reason because they suck.

Also I keep seeing “1975 album” and thinking that he is doing a 1975 covers album or something.

Liking these new songs more than anything that has come out since Saturation. Hope the new album sounds like this.

Lmao before crucifying Young Thug maybe check the lyrics? He says “rent come easy.” That’s what the lyrics say on Apple Music. Also makes a lot more sense as a line.

As someone who has lived in both Indy and Nashville I second this record store ranking.

I really don't get why labels think this is a horrible time to release an album. Everyone has so much time to listen.

March 31, 2020 on Fiona Apple Teases Fetch The Bolt Cutters Release “Really Soon” Despite Advice To Wait Until October
Been rethinking this comment—don't think Lady Gaga would be financially insecure without touring—she probably made more money w/ A Star is Born than I will ever make. Get it more for Haim. I'm just not sure how much the success of touring is tied to proximity to album releases.

March 24, 2020 on Lady Gaga Postpones Chromatica Release Due To Pandemic
I think we are seeing artists divide into two camps here—those who care about the music more and those who care about the business. Unfortunately, Lady Gaga and Haim fall into the second camp.

Would love to be fully informed about what's going on here, but judging by the number of tweets, that will take upward of 30 minutes and I simply don't have the time. But I wills say: Grimes annoys me now to the point where I can barely enjoy her music.

I used to intern at a small record label in Nashville and one day I was tasked with mailing out hundreds of promos to radio stations. Some of Luke's family members came in and helped us. They were really nice. Always, point of this story is that he is a legit grassroots country singer and not a Keith Urban type—which I appreciate.
