‘Contemporize’ – A word that’s ruffled a few feathers.

April 11, 2014 • By

“Contemporize”, This is the word LA Reid used to describe the work by various producers on the forthcoming release by Epic and the Estate, Xscape and it’s this that seems to have caused fresh debate. Now unless you’ve been living under a rock the past few weeks, then you’ll know all about the artwork, the planned release and the number of tracks. But it seems, that whilst we are back in the throng of ‘mania’, the battle lines have once again been drawn.

So let’s start by establishing what we’re poised to get. There are 2 versions of the album, one standard, one deluxe. The standard edition offers 8 tracks, “contemporized” (we’ll come back to that shortly) by the likes of Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins and Stargate. The deluxe edition boasts 2 discs, one the same as the standard and disc 2 features the same 8 tracks in original form plus a bonus track and 2 videos. There been much speculation about the track list and thanks to various press sources we’ve managed to gage some of what is to be included. Something for everyone, everybody’s happy right? Of course not. read more
