Curren$y Plans Two New Albums, Tour for 2011 

Now that the ink is dry on Curren$y’s Warner Bros. contract, he’s wasting no time in making his arrival known. The Jets Life star is ready to take flight, with several new albums and a promo tour lined up for 2011.
Curren$y has two new longplayers, Muscle Car Chronicles and Pilot Talk III, penciled for 2011. The former Young Money associate kicked off his widely acclaimed Pilot Talk series in 2010 with Pilot Talk and Pilot Talk II, issued through Damon Dash’s BluRoc Records and distributed by Def Jam. The two street albums moved about 70,000 units combined and helped Curren$y earn a reported $750K in touring on his own.
The former XXL Freshman is also putting finishing touches on a new EP, Covert Coup, produced entirely by The Alchemist. Covert Coup will hit the iTunes on April 19th, just in time for the 4/20 holiday in Smoker Nation. The aforementioned promo tour begins the next night in New Orleans.
Curren$y’s tour bus will stop by over 40 cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Houston, and Vancouver. Consult the dates below to see if Spitta is coming to a venue near you.

Drake, Cee Lo To Perform At Grammys

The Grammy Awards got a major bump on Wednesday (February 2), when the Recording Academy announced that Drake and Rihanna will take the stage on February 13 for a special performance during the 53rd annual awards show. It will be the Grammy-nominated duo's first live TV performance together on a night when both are up for four awards. While it's not known what song the two stars will sing, their hit collabo "What's My Name?" seems a likely choice.

Drake and Rihanna aren't the only power couple added to the already star-studded performance lineup. After hitting the studio earlier this month to track a special version of "F--- You" and singing together on "Saturday Night Live," Mr. Cee Lo Green and his new bestie, actress/singer Gwyneth Paltrow, will meet up on the Grammy stage. They will be joined by some as-yet-unnamed Muppets for a song on the broadcast.

The newly revealed performers join an already-crowded roster of big-name Grammy nominees who will hit the stage that night, including Eminem, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Arcade Fire, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert and Muse. There are also a number of other previously announced one-of-a-kind hookups in the offing, including Justin Bieber with Usher and "Karate Kid" star Jaden Smith and B.o.B with Bruno Mars and Janelle Monáe.

Among the presenters announced for the show are LL Cool J, Norah Jones, Nicki Minaj, Dierks Bentley, Selena Gomez and Blake Shelton. More performers and presenters will be announced over the next week.

Artists making their first Grammy performances this year include Bieber, B.o.B, Paltrow, Lambert, Mars, Monáe, Muse and Smith. Meanwhile, Eminem, Green, Gaga, Perry, Usher, Drake and Lady Antebellum will be making return visits for the occasion.

Eleven-time Grammy winner Eminem leads the pack in nominations this year with 10 nods. Mars is second with seven nominations, while Gaga and Lady Antebellum have six nods each. B.o.B has notched five, Perry and Green are each up for four, and Arcade Fire and Lambert are vying for three awards. Bieber, Muse, Usher and Monáe are received two Grammy nominations.
