Kid Cudi, Asher Roth Team For Great Hangover Tour
Roth, who released his highly-anticipated "Asleep In The Bread Aisle" debut on April 20th, has sold 121,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart the week of release.
"It's exciting - for me it's like, this is the first step for me on the road," Roth told Billboard. "We've been doing promo runs, but not a real tour yet." Roth also looks forward to playing summer festivals like the Roots' Picnic in Philadelphia and opening on select dates of Blink-182's tour in September.
As for the morning after his shows, "the trick is to drink two 8 oz. glasses of water and you'll never have a hangover," Roth says of his personal cure. "However, when this tour goes down, if you don't have a hangover when you come out of my show then you didn't fully experience the Great Hangover Tour."
Roth plans to release "Be By Myself" featuring Cee-Lo as his second single instead of another favorite from his "Bread Aisle" debut, "She Don't Want a Man" featuring Keri Hilson. "My first single has a lot of mass appeal to it," he said. "I did that on purpose. I wanted to build my foundation, but now I want people to really understand who I am."
"Right now there's one sound on the radio -- Lady GaGa, Black Eyed Peas, Flo Rida -- we need something else that people can start to gravitate towards."
As previously reported, Kid Cudi's debut, "The Man On The Moon With The Guardians," is slated for a late August release. His single, "Day N' Nite," peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 and has sold 540,000 digital downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
