Recently Clizbeats featured artist, B.O.B aka Bobby Ray released his new single “Strange Clouds.” It is the first single from his forthcoming second album of the same name. It features the self proclaimed, best rapper alive, Lil Wayne. The song was produced by blockbuster producer, Dr. Luke, who worked on B.O.B.’s platinum single “Magic,” with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo. “Strange Clouds” was also co-written by producer, Jim Jonsin, the music producer who first signed B.O.B. to his Rebel Rock Entertainment. It was after working with Jonsin that brought B.O.B. to rapper T.I., who’s Grand Hustle label then lead to him signing with Atlantic as well.
After releasing a trailer through his website, for promotion of “Strange Clouds”,the song leaked on September 25th, which thus prompted a rush release of the single which was originally scheduled to premiere on October 3rd. The single had to go on sale on ITunes on September 27th to help stop the leak. “Strange Clouds” follows up B.O.B.’s smash hit, debut album, B.O.B. Presents The Adventures Of Bobby Ray, which is considered one of the best selling albums of 2010. It featured his number one hit, “Nothing On You” featuring his Atlantic label mate, Bruno Mars. That was then followed by another genre bending hit, “Airplanes” featuring Paramore’s Hayley Williams, and Eminem on the song’s remix. If Strange Clouds is half the album his first album was, we are in store for another great treat! Keep checking in with us at Clizbeats.com, as we bring you more details as they become available!
