Ludacris hopes to release his new album, Ludaversal, this spring, according to a recent interview with Billboard. The rapper told Billboard that he is aiming for a May release and that the album is “about 40 percent done”– and will feature some special guests.
Usher is one person that I’ve already worked with,” Ludacris said. “And in terms of other artists, you can say that there’s going to be a lot of surprises on here.” The artists also confirmed that the Neptunes, who produced his past hits “Southern Hospitality” and “Money Maker,” contributed to the disc. “I’ve pretty much collected about 80 percent of the beats that I need and I’ve started writing ideas on them,” the rapper noted. “First I have to love the beat, absolutely love it.”
Luda, who recently announced that he is opening a chicken restaurant in the Atlanta airport, said the first single from the disc can be expected “probably within March.” As for the album as a whole? “It’s been a minute since I’ve been away from music, and there is just so much to talk about,” he said. “So [the album] is mostly about my personal life, my travels, my experiences, rumors, gossip– you know, everything coming together in one.” You know, hence the title Ludaversal.

There’s no question that the Grammy Awards ceremony is the biggest
event in music however it seems as if this year the nomination concert
is going to be almost as exciting as evidenced by the fact that Ludacris, Lupe Fiasco and Sugarland have all been added to the lineup of the nomination special which will air on November 20th at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
These artists will join the already announced roster of Lady Gaga and Jason Aldean and the night’s festivities will be MC’d by the legendary LL Cool J. In addition to these star-studded performances, the concert will see the announcement of the nominees in certain categories, which makes sense when you consider that the program is called Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown To Music’s Biggest Night. (No that isn’t a typo, there are two exclamation points.)
In addition to all this, a press release from the recording academy added that the show will also include “a special, live announcement from a truly iconic group regarding their historic band reunion,” which will take place at the actual ceremony which will air live from Los Angeles’ Staples Center on February 12th on CBS.
In the past the festival has seen everyone from the Police to Blink-182 use the Grammys as a platform to launch reunions, so the Internet is currently buzzing with guesses about who will be reuniting at the event this year. While many pundits are speculating that the classic Van Halen line-up could finally see the light of day, personally we’re hoping for an Appetite For Destruction-era Guns N’ Roses reunion.
So who would you like to see reunite at the Grammys this year?
