Fabolous Bumps Album Again, Preps New Single

Posted By on April 12, 2007

Fabolous has once again reset the release date for his Def Jam debut, "From Nothin' To Somethin'." The album is now due June 12. It was originally expected before the end of 2006, then pushed to February and most recently to March 27.

In the interim, the Brooklyn rapper will service his second single, "Make Me Better," produced by Timbaland and featuring labelmate Ne-Yo, to radio this week.

"From Nothin' To Somethin'" also features production from Just Blaze, Jermaine Dupri, Polow Da Don, Jazze Pha, and Steve Morales. Rihanna, Akon, Swizz Beatz and Lloyd make guest appearances.

First single "Diamonds" featuring Young Jeezy is No. 3 on Bilboard's Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart and debuts this week at No. 83 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Fabolous was previously signed to Elektra and Atlantic. He hasn't released a new studio album since 2004's "Real Talk," which debuted at No. 6 on The Billboard 200 and spawned the hit single "Breathe." The track reached No. 2 on Hot Rap Tracks and No. 10 on the Hot 100.

Since then, he's turned up as a guest on albums from Jennifer Lopez, Syleena Johnson, Christina Milian, Tony Parker and DJ Clue.
