Eve is releasing new music!!

Rapper Eve came out with her last album, Evo-lution in 2002. The music world was a different place back then. Eve along with Lil' Kim and Missy Elliott were still on top of the female hip hop game. Nicki Minaj wasn't around. Lady Gaga wasn't yet popular and hip hop ruled the radio. Fat Joe and Ja Rule took over the airwaves. Now the world is different. Eve, Missy and Kim have all pushing back albums for five or six years. And dance music rules the radio. Dubstep is king right now and even rappers like Trina and metal bands are trying to harness it.
In 2007 Eve was to release Flirt, her fourth record. She had had two singles and it was to come out on September 11. Then the 11th came, and nothing happened. The album was pushed back and later pushed back and renamed Lip Lock, but it never came to fruition, until now. Eve has announced that a few buzz singles will be released in the coming month, followed by the official first single, Eve announced in an interview this week.
Times are different, but Eve is still a force to be reckoned with. She's had singles with Gwen Stefani, Amerie and Sean Paul since her last album. Her Grammy winning single "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" which featured Gwen Stefani still holds up next to rap songs as of late. Hopefully if she knows how to navigate the music world she can have a hit. Let's just hope that she doesn't do so trying to sound like a Lady Gaga or Katy Perry clone. Only time will tell if Eve can keep her credability but this blogger is sure that many people will be awaiting this album.
