I stepped out of my apartment recently and saw fallen autumn leaves. Sadly, I noticed summer is ending.
Guys, there’ll be no more chances to hear fluffy songs asking her to take off her clothes. Girls, maybe Mario was just a friend.
Summer’s gone, so we say farewell to its light dance tunes that are hard on the feet and easy on the ears. And through we anticipate summer’s aftermath, the truth still hurts. The summer was full of singles ready to make you sweat. It is traditional for summer songs to be lighter in subject matter and tougher on the pelvis.
In this age of media and information, promoting an artist isn’t that difficult.
Most information is only a URL away. So, it’s not out of the ordinary for an already-popular artist to sell one million copies.
Eminem was the big album of the summer. The Eminem Show has sold four million copies. Still, it was the same formula from Mr. Mathers.
In three albums he hasn’t told me much. He’s told me what his name is. He asked for the real slim shady to stand up. Now in his third effort, he’s told me how empty the world is without him. Wow!
Still, there’s something that makes me want to listen. I like the new album, I don’t have much to say bad about it.
Maybe I’m just scared to say anything bad after the VMAs.
“Hot in Herre” was the “dance anthem” of the summer. I couldn’t go to a party or club without hearing it.
Nelly has the star quality of MC Hammer and I don’t see him around for long. I’m enjoying his music while it lasts.
One more standout track is “Dilemma” featuring Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child. This single is already becoming a “players anthem” in it’s own right. Nelly may take Naughty by Nature’s title as king of the Hip-hop anthem.
Can Nellyville, which sold three million, catch up to his first effort, Country Grammar, which sold eight million?
Murder INC stayed on top of the charts all summer with hits like “Happy,” “Down for You,” and “What’s Love.”
Irv Gotti has been making moves all summer. A month ago, Nas joined the Murder INC camp. They stayed on the airwaves constantly.
If it wasn’t Ashanti singing over a hook it was JaRule screaming “murder” on every song.
