AWW LAWWD! I hope I'm not the only one that will be glad to see the back of this era's awful cover artwork. Surriously, every single cover and the greatest hits artwork are all awful :/ If she holds onto that tacky logo as well, I will personally go round every store that is selling her next releases and draw over it with something less visually offensive.
NEW REMIX SINGLE ARTWORK : rihanna - pour it up (remix) (ft. young jeezy, rick ross, juicy j & t.i.)
Why is it that independent artist Ashanti is coming out with solid, sexy single artworks, but that her album artwork is a hot ass mess?? I mean, I know this is a little dull and verging on being a lingerie catalogue shoot - that blue lipstick on the cover of 'Braveheart' has still not grown on me!

Now this is a nice little piece - JT has decided to give the vinyl edition of his latest release a totally original artwork (putting importance on the vintage format, which links into this album's take on classic sounds and giving them a modern day spotlight). Set your sights on the cover below:

'Slip' will serve as a reboot single from the girls delayed, self-titled album. The artwork shows them looking just as they did when they first burst onto the music scene - it's funny to see their styling has returned to their original looks, will they be keeping with their more recognisable visuals until they get the success they deserve?

Mish originally posted a buzz artwork for the track the other week and has now revealed the official cover - I think it's a video still from the upcoming visual, but she's whippin' that weave like it ain't no thang, so I'm catered to :)
Bey unveiled a new buzz track (or is it two buzz tracks mashed together?) - complete with a tumblr-fied artwork featuring a baby B and a multitude of trophies.

British visual artist Jam Sutton revealed Ms. Banks' new single artwork for single 'Yung Rapunxel' - from upcoming debut album. It's loud, lairy and feels like a throwback to a vintage Missy Elliott/Hype Williams video... I love it!
Everyone's favourite Knowles sister (oooh, controversial!) is about to release her 'True' EP in physical form. To celebrate, she has teamed up with the vuury stylish boutique chain 'Opening Ceremony' and New York artist Mickalene Thomas to create a limited edition artwork. This new cover will be used for a small run of copies sold exclusively on the 'Opening Ceremony' website and mine is already pre-ordered!
p.s. Check out the original artwork here.

I've been meaning to post this new album cover for some time and everytime I looked at it I thought it was a primary-coloured human heart...now I've finally come to post it, I see it's three images of Little Boots herself. Silly Simon! Tuck in below...
Everyone's fave M.I.A. has uploaded an 8-minute mix tape titled after her forthcoming album 'Matangi' and has given it (what else) but a low-fi, kitschy artwork :) She is the queen of this visual and I always enjoy seeing what she'll produce next.
As previously reported, Fantasia accidentally leaked her album cover a little early (and a little low quality...) - BUT! Now the official track listing has been announced and so has a proper HQ version of the artwork. She's still serving us that Josephine Baker, ghetto-fab Vogue magazine cover - I love it and couldn't be more excited for a new album from her!
Wow Skylar's taking a risk here! Going for a moody, "a desperate Desperate Housewife" look - including washer/dryer and axe... - Sky has decided to not include any type, neither her name or album title. simonsez definitely approves! I love when an artist takes a bit of a risk with a look and I'm sure that the rest of the artwork would follow suit. I do see this as a gamble though, as some would say her name is the only thing that has carried her solo efforts so far, as she hasn't made much impact with her single releases. Here's hoping the album doesn't get pushed back and we get to hear what the release has to offer!
That new blonde weave Cici has been rocking this era has put her in a very Marilyn Monroe mood, methinks - now recreating the original blonde bombshell's classic white bed sheets photoshoot for new single artwork 'Body Party'.
