Grammy®-nominated hip-hop magnate Rick Ross announces his eight studio album BLACK MARKET set to arrive in December on Maybach Music Group / Def Jam Recordings. BLACK MARKET, Rozay’s third full-length album release in less than two years, will be the follow-up to Rick Ross’ Hood Billionaire, released November 2014 and Mastermind in March 2014, his fifth career album to debut at #1 Soundscan.
To announce the album, Rick Ross premiered his brand new single, “Sorry” featuring Chris Brown, this morning on the nationally syndicated “Breakfast Club” morning show on Power 105.1 in New York City. “Sorry” will go up for sale at all digital retailers and streaming partners on October 9th.
Leading up to the BLACK MARKET announcement, this summer Rick Ross released a stellar mixtape entitled “Black Dollar,” which was heralded by critics for Ross’ humble and honest wordplay. Pitchfork exclaimed, “that voice of his, and the way he makes it leap and tremble with joy, can momentarily make you believe anything,” while XXL stated “Rick Ross is on the ascent again.” To date, the mixtape has over 1.7 million listens on mixtape site DatPiff.
Hood Billionaire and Mastermind succeeded Ross’ 2012 release, God Forgives, I Don’t, his fourth album to debut at #1 Soundscan, which included top hits “Touch’N You” featuring Usher, “So Sophisticated” featuring Meek Mill, and fan favorite “Diced Pineapples” featuring Drake and Wale. Ross’ previous best-selling albums include Port Of Miami (2006), Trilla (2008), and Deeper Than Rap (2009), all of which debuted at #1 Soundscan; and Teflon Don (2010).
