B.o.B – Strange Clouds (Album Stream & Pre-Order)
B.o.B has done a phenomenal job marketing Strange Clouds. He used “single” releases perfectly, outfitted with official YouTube streams that ended up legally on thousands of blogs and websites, and with songs already being overplayed on radio stations across the nation. But even with all those official releases, it was inevitable that (in my opinion, so far) the album of the year was going to leak prematurely. So far, I have listened to it at 4 times all the way through and it gets better and better every single time.
Beginning with Morgan Freeman’s classic narration, and ending with self criticism and going back to his roots, with features ridiculous features from Taylor Swift, Weezy, Chris Brown & T.I., Nicki Minaj, Ryan Tedder, Lauriana MAe, Playboy Tre and Trey Songz in between…Strange Clouds is the so unique – a perfect mix of Bobby Ray’s classic lyricism, hip hop vibage and beats, and just enough pop to get every single song stuck in your head. Enjoy FITA, and PLEASE pre order or cop the physical copy in stores. Dude this talented def deserves it.
