Universal Music Launches Icon Series with Janet, Erykah Badu, & More

SAY YOU HEARD AND SAW IT HERE FIRST! The OFFICIAL word will blaze the internet MONDAY. So you're getting the inside scoop 2 DAYS ahead of the crowd! Thank me by commenting and supporting the artists!

August 31st Universal Music Enterprises (Ume) will launch a new series of albums featuring the greatest hits and fan favorites of some of the most iconic artists in music history, thus its name--the Music Icon Series! Thirty artists from different genres ranging from R&B to country are included. And of course you can't have a roster of musical icons and their hits without including Miss Janet Jackson and her bad-ass self.

If you're thinking, "Wasn't this done already?" let me explain. This new Universal release is one disc of music hits. Janet's 2009 release was a 2-disc compilation featuring new song, "Make Me." Secondly, this upcoming album features 12 global #1's and the title single, "Nothing", from Tyler Perry's, "Why Did I Get Married Too?" And third, this CD is part of an entire series of great music under the Universal umbrella. But who cares about all that! Cop this release anyway HERE!You never know when you'll need some emergency Janet music at work, in the car, or on your way to the beach.

Erykah Badu fans, raise your damn ankhs up! Twitter's @fatbellybella is in da Icon Music Series building! On and on and on and on, Badu's cypher still keeps moving like a rolling stone. And in this series, the Badu icon album includes, of course, "On and on", and other fan favs "Bag Lady", "Honey", plus collabos with The Roots and Common.

Sorry, there will be no controversial nude-protest video with this one, but hopefully "group thinking" will lead you to get this compilation too when the Icon Music Series drops on August 31st. That said, there's no need to worry 'cause Erykah know that she got me!

Some of the other artists in this Icon Music Series include Patsy Cline, Hoobastank, Etta James, and KISS. And a few of my personal R&B favs are The Jackson 5--remember MJ's birthday is two days earlier on the 29th--James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, & Diana Ross and the Supremes. All the albums include 12 tracks, and some artists--Patsy Cline, KISS, Marvin Gaye, Styx, The Temptations, and Don Williams--actually have 2-disc CDS in the series.

For the entire list of artists, release updates, and other info fan and follow the Icon Music Series on Facebook and at Twitter's @ICONseries. And remember the official word will be made public Monday and the official Music Icon Series release date is August 31st.

This has been a Hollywood As I Live & Work EXCLUSIVE report! Share with it friends and even some enemies! Thanks You Know Who!
