Random News Update 10/19/09
I figured out that I can’t do a full post on every little tidbit of info. So, I’ll do these news updates to keep you abreast of the minutiae of Soul music. Here we go.
Melanie Fiona has her album “The Bridge” arriving tomorrow (Tuesday October 20th, 2009) on iTunes, and the kicker is that it’s only $5.99. At that price you have no excuse but to listen. For a sample of her music, check out the mixtape from “The Bridge”.
For the Maxwell lovers out there. A 2nd batch of “Bad Habits” remixes are being released soon. A 2nd batch?

I know this isn’t Soul related, but it’s well worth mentioning. Everyone know about Jay-Z’s recent “The Blueprint 3” release. Well… Alex Goose was on of the people to submit beats to be featured on Jay-Z’s album. None of his beats made the cut, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t fiyah. :) he has posted those beats to the public via theblueprint3outakes.com. Take a listen for something different. Plus you can’t beat anything that is free.
