Jay-Z: Blueprint 3 Coming

Blueprint 3Tomorrow (September 8th) J-Hova fans know that Blueprint 3 will be hitting the store shelves. For all the fans in the UK you’ll need to hold out until the 14th for the release.

This is Jay-Z’s 11th studio album

A little background

Most of the album’s recording took place in Hawaii with the aim to avoid the leakage, Kanye West protege Mr Hudson explained to the The Times that he “won’t get bothered there” compared in a major city such as New York City or Los Angeles. Jay-Z told Rolling Stone his method of selecting producers, “If Timbaland makes ten great tracks then he produces the album, if Kanye West makes ten great tracks then he produces the album; if he makes three, I’ll take three. I let the music dictate the direction”. However, judging by the final track listing, it appears that West is producing the majority of the album, with Timbaland only producing three tracks. West has confirmed two songs, “Everyday A Star Is Born” and “Forever Young”, during an appearance on the The Wake Up Show in February 2009. Mr Hudson, who is the featured artist on the latter, described it as a flip on the Alphaville record of the same name. During a joint interview with Hudson, West confirmed that the pop artist would be on three tracks. In a Billboard interview, Jay-Z confirmed “What We Talking About”, the album’s intro, “Thank You,” and “Already Home” as song names and collaborations with Australian dance group Empire of the Sun, rappers Drake and Kid Cudi and singer Rihanna. Jay-Z also mentioned in an interview with DJ Semtex that his favorite song on the album is a song titled “Empire State of Mind”. The official tracklist for Blueprint 3 was unveiled on August 18, confirming the guest appearances from Drake, Alicia Keys, Kid Cudi, J. Cole, and more. [via]
