Keyshia Cole and Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em have linked with MySpace Music to offer fans an exclusive first-listen to their new albums before they hit stores this week.
Keyshia returns with a 15-track third album A Different Me led by the single “Playa Cardz Right,” featuring the late Tupac Shakur.
In addition to featuring guest appearances by Nas, Monica and Tank, the Grammy nominated singer has tagged mega producers including Polow Da Don and Ron Fair.
Returning to retail stores for a second time, Soulja Boy fans will be able to peep each record from his new album iSoulaBoyTellem exclusively via MySpace. Teaming with various beat makers like Drumma Boy, the teen rap star recently told SOHH his latest single “Yamaha Mama” will be a hit.
“It’s featuring Sean Kingston,” Soulja Boy told SOHH. “It’s basically like another record dedicated to all of my female fans. You know it’s gonna be like a super money video on the beach with all the sun, sunlight and the water and all that.”
Logging on to MySpace’s music section, users will hear the albums from start to finish while also having the ability to check out their own MySpace pages featuring additional music, videos and other gadgets.
Both artists are the latest to link with the mega social network as Beyonce and Kanye West, recently offered fans first-hand previews of their new discs prior to their official release dates.
In related news, Soulja Boy took home several Online Hip-Hop Awards including honors for “King of the Net,” “Artist Website of the Year,” and more. See the Online Hip-Hop Award Show here.
