Grrrrllll, it took us a good seven days to regain consciousness after the ACL music festival, but the upcoming week brings us even greater tunes.

As part of his G.O.O.D. Friday digital series, Kanye West, has been releasing one mp3 every Friday, and will continue to do so until Christmas. None of the tracks released via G.O.O.D. Friday, will be on his upcoming fifth album, Fantasy, due out November 22. Some interesting gossip from over the weekend, is that Kanye West’s Fantasy album cover (featured on the right) has been banned in the U.S.

Regarding this ban, Kanye West commented, “They don’t want me chilling on my couch with my phoenix. In the Seventies, album covers had actual nudity… It's so funny that people forget that… Everything has been so commercialized now. In all honesty … I really don't be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers. I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity.”

This week brought us a new bonus track off Rihanna’s new album, Loud, which comes out November 16. The track, entitled, “What’s My Name?” is a collaboration between the 22-year-old, Rihanna and the 23-year-old, Drake. Also, another new track from recording artist Kelly Rowland, the track, "We Can Do It" ends off our
