Lil Wayne’s “Rebirth” pushed back Until 2010?

8 Sep

Lil Wayne IIAfter the major success that he had in 2008, Lil Wayne decided to change it up for his 2009 release, Rebirth. He told fans and critics that this album would be experimental.

The album’s first single, “Prom Queen,” was a rock single and was initially panned. After warming up to radio, the song went on to peak at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the video was also successful.

Lil Wayne’s label, Universal Motown, however, felt that the single was not popular enough, so the album was pushed back from April until July. The album has seen so many push backs that some have speculated that it has been shelved.

During his 2008 promotion of Tha Carter III, Lil Wayne announced that 2009 was going to be the year of Young Money. He said that he would get his stuff out of the way to make room for his stable of artists. Also, in 2009, Lil Wayne released a single, entitled “Every Girl” that features the artists from Young Money.

“Every Girl” has been far more successful than “Prom Queen” because it peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed in circulation longer. Wayne has spoken on the Young Money project, stating that it would definitely come out in 2009. When asked about Rebirth, he says you cannot rush creativity.

Is it possible that the Young Money album will serve as Lil Wayne’s 2009 album and that his Rebirth album is being re-worked and put on shelves for 2010?
