We brought you a list of album release dates in the summer, so it’s only right that we bring you a list of projects coming out this fall. As we wrap up 2012, you can expect new music from Rihanna, 50 Cent, and Meek Mill — as well as, Alicia Keys, Keyshia Cole and even Whitney Houston.
Side note, we went to Ne-Yo’s album release party for R.E.D last night — incredible. Ladies and gentleman, R&B is back. See a full list below.
There’s no doubt that Taylor Swift has loyal and supportive fans. In fact, they proved that notion this morning. The Pop singer’s Red album dropped yesterday, and has already sold 4 million tracks off the album on itunes. Imagine what her first week’s sells are going to look like?
Earlier today Good Morning America was a little confused about the numbers and tweeted:
Taylor Swift’s new album #RED has only been out for a day and has already sold over 4 million copies. #TaylorOnGMA
Tracks off the album, not album sells. Brian Mansfield, a USA Today correspondent for Nashville, Tennessee quickly clarified.
Quick reality check: @taylorswift13 has already sold 4 million tracks from #Red, not 4 million copies of the album. Give the girl some time.
Lol. Have you gotten the album?
The rumors are true, the Cruel Winter album is coming, and Q-Tip’s verse can be found on it. In an interview with HHS1987, he confirmed the G.O.O.D Music project, and elaborated on his solo upcoming album, The Last Zulu.

Missy sat down with Fuse recently to reminisce on the past and plug it into today’s music. She spoke on Supa Dupa Fly being 15 years old (I know! We had the same reaction!), and talked about it being ahead of it’s time.
“Everything about it. You hadn’t heard it before,” said Missy of the 1997 project, which took two weeks to record. “Even the rap flows was different. I think it was 10 years ahead, 15 years ahead [of its time].”
What about her new album title? She’s still thinking, but has some options: Block Party, Class Dismissed, or Class in Session.
If you’re thinking about a 2012 Ladies Night remix, she responded with… “Great possibility.” HYFR! Watch the full interview
While on her promotional tour, Brandy stops by #SwayInTheMorning to talk about the reason behind her title, Two Eleven, speaks on the impact Whitney Houston’s death [on her birthday] had on her, as well as opens up about being in love.

With Talk That Talk released less than a year ago, Rihanna took to her twitter page to announce her 7th album, Unapologetic.
