B.o.B is doing his best to ensure no sophomore slump comes his way with an all-star lineup of features for his upcoming disc, "Strange Clouds." Revealed via Instagram on Monday afternoon (Apr. 9), the album calls upon stars from both the music world (T-Swift!) and film world (Morgan Freeman?) to make appearances on his upcoming album.
On the music side, the Atlanta rapper boasts music features from R&B stars ( Chris Brown, Trey Songz), singer/songwriters (Lauriana Mae), pop ( Ryan Tedder), fellow rappers ( T.I., Playboy Tre, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne on the title track), and even giving a nod to the country genre with Taylor Swift on the track "Both Of Us." But perhaps the most interesting feature is opening the album with Morgan Freeman on the track "Bombs Away."
His debut record, "B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray," topped the Billboard 200 in 2010 and featured other huge names like Bruno Mars, Hayley Williams and Rivers Cuomo. "Strange Clouds" arrives May 1 and includes the hit title track featuring Lil Wayne and his follow-up single, "So Good."
