Kelly Rowland Parts Ways With Universal Republic

After two albums with the label, Kelly Rowland has parted ways with Universal Republic, and is beginning work on her fifth solo project. “It’s been wonderful so far, a fresh new spin on everything, with writers, producers, just being inspired, just creativity,” the newly-engaged Kelly said of the project in a recent interview.

“I feel like right now, I just needed something new and I’ve earned the right to make my own choices and make my own decisions,” Kelly added about the split from the label. Though she doesn’t know exactly what her next move will be, she is happy to be in the studio on her own, “recording, having fun, and being creatively free.” Wonder where she’ll end up next!

Uhhh…What?! Guess What Young Thug Will Name His Debut Album!

Young Thug x Rich Gang

Young Thug recently made his record deal with YMCMB/Rich Gang official, and as big of a deal as that already is, it’s even bigger to the ATL rapper than we realize. While talking to FADER down at SXSW last week, Thugger revealed that Lil Wayne is his favorite rapper in the world, and that he has completely influenced him in every way. “I won’t listen to nothing else,” he said at the FADER Fort. “The fact that that n*gga got like 100 M’s and he still raps every day? It’s amazing.”

So – with his obvious affinity for controversy and getting the people talking, it may not come as TOO much of a surprise that he’ll be naming his debut studio album, Tha Carter VI. He’s so crazy!

“I just feel like I’m that big,” Young Thug told DJ Whoo Kid on Shade 45. “Because [Wayne] feels like after Tha Carter V, he won’t make no more music because he feel like can’t nobody make no music like that.”

Check out both Whoo Kid and FADER’s interviews below for full details. What do you think of his album title?
