No single sounds good to me. Sound like Jay Elect is making the music he wants to make. Too bad we probably won't get to hear it for another couple years.

he should just make a single,even if its poppy,he owes us a album,its like when charles hamilton couldve made "pink lavalamp" if he added "brooklyn girls" on there it wouldve helped him more in his career but he didnt want to,look at j.cole he had workout which helped him big time

I think Elec needs 2 other artists who are capable of making singles help him out. Except I really can't name 2 artists who could mesh with him and create a single

Maybe Elec x Wale x Gaga


fu*k it, I'm done.

Jay needs to stop keeping this album for himself, and let the fans pick a single. Give a listening party and let some real hiphop heads choose... Or just drop the album... Either way...

Jay-Z needs to fall back on this.

He should just let the homie come with some lyricism and drop some new material for the heads. he's probably not gonna sell more than 100k regardless.
Uh, why? Apparently you don't understand the purposes of the music BUSINESS. It's about making MONEY. What's the point of just throwing out albums? You won't be in business long like that.

If Electronica just wanted to "drop some new material for the heads" then he wouldn't have signed, period he would have just released his music.

Yea cause I'm sure the "fans" would be better at picking a single than fu*king Jay-Z there's a reason they're fans on a message board while he's a multiplatinum artist.

whatever

I think the fact that hes a multiplatinum artist is whats making him try and put jay elec in a box and have him have a single like j coles workout

When really he needs to be viewing Jay elec as a different kind of artist and go about the single process in a different way

like. . .look at Tyler the Creator and Yonkers. Aint sh*t about that song that screams single. But yet it got him TONS of attention.

I doubt he can craft a single that will do relatively well without it being mad corny
Naw, I think he's talented enough to do so. I mean Lupe has two top 10 hits.

Hov knows that if he puts Jay Electronica album out it will flop...and even yall "real hip hop heads" wont buy it. Dont matter if its classic if nobody will hear it. Tell that n*gga put a r&b hook on the album & call it a day

ok...but look at all the internet "famous" rappers that get massive hype off of one song, ridiculous amount of views....and then the album is a complete flop (lil b, v-nasty, all these other terrible rappers).

jay obviously wants sales, not pointless views. rap is a business.


look at budden, his biggest song ever (and the highest point album/sales/everything) wise is when he was on def jam, look at him now he can't make a hit song to save his life yet his "fans" hype it up and then he goes wood.

Tyler the creators a kid though...Jay Electronicas to grown up for that type of wave.


Dude recorded most of his album in Africa too..They've spent ALOT of money on this project so far, so something is going to have to come of it. Pretty sure theyre gonna get him in with a couple of hitmakers and see what they can come up with.

They could go the common route with the project and just hope to sell 4-500K but the thing is...theyve spent so much to the point where they need to get good returns off the sh*t.
