Diamonds featuring Young Jeezy
Brooklyn-born rapper Fabolous, the newest mega-signing to the Def Jam Recordings artist roster, will release his long-awaited new fourth album, From Nothin' To Somethin', on March 27th.
The album, featuring special guest appearances from fellow Def Jam artist Ne-Yo with producer Timbaland (on "Make Me Better"), Steve Morales (on "Diamonds"), and Jazzy Pha, will arrive in stores via DJ Clue?'s Desert Storm. Fabolous, who the New York Times recently touted as "slick and underrated," is currently heating up the airwaves alongside Young Jeezy on the blazing "Diamonds," the first single from From Nothin' To Somethin'.
It has been more than two years now since the release of Real Talk in November 2004, the third album by Fabolous on Desert Storm (this time via Atlantic). The album rose to #2 on the R&B and rap charts and #6 on the pop side on the strength of its breakout first single, "Breathe," which crossed from #2 rap and #4 R&B to Top 10 pop.
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
