Album Review: Macy Gray and Timbaland
MACY GRAY – BIG Â» Love Macy Gray, she’s a true maverick to me with her sound, style, and genuinely soulful raspy voice that you can’t help but love! Her 4th studio album, Big, which features guest appearences by Will.i.am (vocals, programming); Fergie , Natalie Cole (vocals) and Justin Timberlake (keyboards) will be releasing March 27. Now here are a few ripped tracks that I personally enjoyed myself starting with ‘Strange Behavior’ (lol) I was chuckling through the whole song. I could not help it, it’s real funny how she is so friggin BLUNT with it, and how she shot his ass – you have to listen! It is definitely some strange behavior in this whole bluesy karmic scenario she sings about on this record, LOL! Next is ‘Get Out’ featuring keyboard man Justin Timberlake, the rock anthem of the summer, snares, bass, cymbals – the percussion is out of this world good gawd! Then there’s ‘U Make Me’ featuring Floetry, another rock inspired record, with a heavy beat, you can bob your head to. Floetry was also a very nice touch to this one. And finally there’s ‘Shooby Doo’, yes, a very nice slow jam for you and your girl/ boy to rock to. Over all I give it a 3/5

TIMBALAND – SHOCK VALUE Â» Timbaland Presents Shock Value is an upcoming solo album from record producer Timbaland. According to Interscope, the album was supposed to be released on March 27, 2007 but was pushed back to April 3, 2007. The first single is “Give It To Me” featuring Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake. The single was released on U.S. radio on February 6, 2007, as reported by allaccess.com. Timbaland previewed “Throw It On Me” and “One & Only” on radios. The album will feature an extensive list of high profile musicians from many genres of music. “I’m not just hip-hop,” Timbaland insists. “My mission is to take over top-40 radio â€” what they call popular music, different genres of music â€” and reach all types of people.” In an interview with radio station Z100, Timbaland confirmed that rappers Kanye West and Missy Elliott will be on a track together, as well as a remix of rock band One Republic’s song “Apologize.” He also announced that Jay-Z would be part of the album but the song did not make the final cut.
