The anticipation for Lil Wayne's upcoming album has truly peaked; earlier this week, Kobe Bryant posted a promotional shot for Tha Carter V on Twitter, sparking rumors that it might've been the album's official artwork. The excitement increased when Floyd Mayweather posted a snippet of Weezy and Drake in the studio working on the album's first single, "Believe Me" which dropped in full last night—along with a new Nicki track "Believe Me" with Soulja Boy.
Another artist that has fans hyped for more music is Frank Ocean, who is slated to perform at this year's Met Gala. He posted a message on his Tumblr a few weeks ago hinting that he was finishing up his new album, and since Kanye West's performance at last year's Met Gala was the first time the world heard some of Yeezus, we hope Frank decides to do the same.
In other news, Forbes' highest-earning couple Jay Z and Beyoncé officially announced the On The Run tour, which kicks off June 25 in Miami, make its way around the U.S. and Canada, and concludes in San Francisco. While this 16-city tour gives fans all over the country a shot at catching Bey and Jay together, it's safe to say tickets will sell out fast since pre-sale began on April 29. Good luck.
This week we also premiered new music (and a new rant) from Dame Dash, while Young Thug and Metro Boomin released their latest music video, and there's a new DJ Khaled song, which has already stirred up some controversy, too. Check out all that and more on What The Hell Just Happened In Music This Week?
