July is usually not a good month for new albums. This year, it's downright depressing. I mean really. There aren't any albums coming out that really interest me and only a few that I think are even worth mentioning.
None....unless the rumors that the Kanye West and Jay-Z collaboration, Watch the Throne, are proven true (it's speculated that the album will be released on the 4th of July).
Jay Sean - Freeze Time (July 5). British R&B singer puts out his fourth album, featuring recent hit with Nicki Minaj, "2012 (It Ain't the End)."
Dionne Bromfield - Good for the Soul (July 5). British R&B singer releases her second album, featuring recent singles "Yeah Right" and "Foolin'."
3 Doors Down - Time of My Life (July 19). Snoozer of a rock band releases its fifth album.
August looks better, with the debut album from Wretch 32 and new albums from Hard-Fi, Will Young, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Taio Cruz and possibly The Ting Tings. Plus Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV, which got pushed from June.
