This is the second instalment to the Throwback Thursday feature. 2001 is the year.
Jay-Z released the first Blueprint which would be later followed by two more. The Shins entered the scene with their quirky indie music which later turned to gold. Death Cab For Cutie started gaining some traction as far as being “known” goes. Usher caught fire, from the previous record selling less than a million copies, to 8701 selling almost 8 million worldwide.
Both tracks off The Blueprint, which has sold almost 3 million copies in the US
Oh, Inverted World was The Shins debut album. This track along with “New Slang” was featured on the Grammy Award winning soundtrack for Garden State
Produced by Megahertz off the third record from P. Diddy & The Bad Boy Family
The beat is courtesy of Rick Rock off Brooklyn rapper Fabolous’ debut album
Featured on The OC, along with many other tracks and a live performance. Definitely didn’t hinder their success.
The third studio album from the R&B singer, selling over 8 million copies worldwide.
“Stormin’ through the party like my name was El Nino”
I doubt this French electronic duo knew their track would be sampled 6 years later by a man named Kanye West
One of the few slow tempo tracks from the Arizona Alternative Rock group.
Is This It is the debut album from the New York Indie Rock band. I feel they have yet to top this record and may never.
Born To Do It is Craig David’s best record and was one of my guilty pleasures.
