Jay-Z's Blueprint will arrive early
Due to overwhelming demand by fans and retailers alike, Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella Records officially have announced that Jay's sixth album, The Blueprint, will be released Sept. 11 -- two weeks earlier than planned. Originally scheduled for release on Sept. 25 and then Sept. 18, this date change is an unprecedented move for any recording artist and a testament to Jay-Z's popularity. Demand began when he premiered the lead single "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)" on the BET Awards in June. Excitement was then heightened when he brought Michael Jackson on stage at Nassau Coliseum during the Hot 97 Summer Jam in New York. Since those appearances and the debut of the video for "Izzo," fans have been flooding both independent and chain retailers requesting Jay-Z's upcoming release. The Blueprint, which Jay-Z describes as his most "soulful" album, features production by Just Blaze, Kanye West, Timbaland, Poke & Tone, Bink and Eminem, who also appears on the song "Renegade." In support of The Blueprint, Jay-Z will embark on a nationwide theatre tour beginning on Sept. 14 in Columbus, Ohio. The video for the next single, "Girls, Girls, Girls," will be shot this month in Los Angeles.
