NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of March 31, 2017

Black is back.

We’ve made it through a quarter of the year, and the hits just keep on coming in this week’s report. Let’s check out all the action right here:

KODAK BLACK – Painting Pictures (iTunes)
The 19-year-old Florida performer is riding the success of the viral hit “Tunnel Vision” with his debut album, which follows his set of mixtapes over the last few years. The song just impacted at Urban radio, and should be charting rather soon. With a healthy amount of sale and stream equivalent units being added to its total, it should have a large debut on the album survey next week.

TRACE ADKINS – Something’s Going On (iTunes)
This is the fifteenth studio album for the Country star, who made his debut in 1996 and topped the chart with tracks like “(This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing” and “You’re Gonna Miss This”. His current album features the song “Watered Down”, which is in the lower rungs of the survey. Look for it somewhere in the top 40.

LA’PORSHA RENAE – Already All Ready (iTunes)
Former American Idol runner-up Renae is out with her debut album, which features the top ten Urban AC hit “Good Woman”. It’s at #9 currently. Though the buzz from the show is largely gone, there should still be some interest in the release.
