On Thursday, it was announced that Blackground Records would be releasing Aaliyah’s music on Spotify. Now, it looks like Tank, Toni Braxton, Timbaland & Magoo will also have their albums released.
Taking to Instagram, Blackground Records wrote, “Toni Braxton’s “Libra” album will be available on all major digital streaming platforms on October 1st.”
Announcing Tank’s albums, they also wrote, “Force of Nature,” “One Man” and “Sex, Love & Pain” by Tank will be available on all major digital streaming platforms on September 17th.”
If Toni and Tank’s albums weren’t enough to make people excited, It was also announced that Timbaland & Magoo’s projects, ‘Welcome to Our World,’ ‘Indecent Proposal,’ ‘Tim Bio,’ and ‘Under Construction’ will now be available on streaming platforms starting August 27th.
This comes after decades of the albums not being available to fans. As previously reported, Aaliyah’s discography will also be available starting August 20th with “One in a Million” dropping first.
The release of Aaliyah’s music is happening just as Barry is reviving Blackground Records.
As previously reported, Barry spoke exclusively to The Shade Room to talk about the rebirth of his label–which gave us Timbaland’s “Shock Value II” in 2009 before a more than 10-year hiatus and bragged on his new artist, who he says can’t be compared to any artist out.
Barry tells us he moved Blackground to Atlanta, where he has been meeting so many talented artists who couldn’t find a way to get their music out.
This inspired him to bring Blackground back as ‘Blackground Records 2.0’ and do what they do, which he says is to push young artists.
Roomies, are y’all excited about this?
