It may be December 2011, but there is already a lock on best album title of the year for 2012: RICK ROSS's next opus of rap-tastic affluenza, God Forgives, I Don't (Maybach Music Group/Def Jam). Ross's multiple seizures this past October — the medical, not the law-enforcement kind — forced the release to March 2012 from its initial November '11 date.
Also massively delayed is the long-playing debut from Devin Tailes, a/k/a DEV. Tailes rocketed to notoriety in 2010 when the vocals from her self-made jam "Booty Bounce" were carjacked by Far East Movement into the worldwide smash "Like a G6." The Night the Sun Came Up (Universal Republic) has been in the can for more than a year, with singles "Bass Down Low" and "In the Dark" already moderate international chart hits, but the album, re-tooled from its international release, finally gets its Stateside moment on March 27.
LOOK AHEAD: All the movies, music, theater, games, restaurants (and more!) you'll be checking out in 2012
