Also in April, Ashanti’s album Braveheart will release on the 24th. Continuing with April, Rascal Flatts will also be coming out with a new album!

In May, many popular artists will release new CD’s including B.O.B., Carrie Underwood, Chris Brown, and even John Mayer. B.O.B’s new album Strange Clouds has already had great success with its first single entitled “Strange Clouds.” Carrie Underwood (who is one of my personal favorites) will release her fourth album Blown Away. This release has me quite excited; I remember her winning American Idol like it was yesterday.  Chris Brown’s CD is set to release on the May 4th and is titled Fortune. Fortune is a follow up to his F.A.M.E. soundtrack. Ending May strongly is John Mayer. Mayer’s album Born and Raised is his 5th studio album making him the veteran of the group.

A later summer album by 50 Cent is set to release in July rounding out your summer playlist.

Summer is not the same without new music. Having a soundtrack to your summer will make your summer more fun! Later in the year, when you hear the songs from your soundtrack, you will remember your summer and the music that went along with it. So whether you’re a country fan, an R&B fan, or anything in between there’s something new for you out there this summer. Update your iPod, make a playlist, and enjoy.
