Drake news: Album leaks, visits Lil Wayne in prison; "Glee" soundtrack holds off STP for No. 1; Belle & Sebastian announces tour
By David Malitz
- How can Drake be so ominpresent and still not have an album out? Well, "Thank Me Later" isn't officially released for another couple weeks but as of yesterday it was all over the Internet. "Drake album" was a local trending topic on Twitter, just below #idontappreciate and #oilspill. Priorities. One of the many guest stars on "Thank Me Later" is the currently incarcerated Lil Wayne, who apparently got a visit from his young, Canadian protege yesterday.
- Stone Temple Pilots fell just short of topping the Billboard charts with their first album in nine years. The self-titled effort sold 62,000 copies in its first week, just 1,000 fewer than "Glee: the Music, Volume 3." Better luck in 2019, guys. It was the second straight week on top for "Glee," but expect Jack Johnson to very mellowly and casually snag that top spot next week.
- Indie-pop favorites Belle & Sebastian will return to North America for their first shows since 2006 this fall. The Scottish band made a twee classic back in the '90s with "If You're Feeling Sinister" and has reinvented itself impressively with a bouncier, slightly glammy sound on "The Life Pursuit" and "Dear Catastophe Waitress." They'll play in D.C. on Oct. 14 at Constitution Hall; tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Who else saw them at the Black Cat back in 1998?
