News: Bow Wow Gets That Ol' Thing Back, "I Ain't Feel This Good About A Single In A Long Time"
Thursday, Feb 2, 2012 9:07PM
Just a day after Cash Money Records' Bow Wow unleashed the tracklisting for Underrated, the rapper has now promised his upcoming "Right Now" single is a must-hear.
Despite the popularity of his recent Lil Wayne-assisted "Sweat" single, Bow Wow explained why "Right Now" is in a class of its own.
"I ain't felt this good about a single in a long time. I don't want to confuse everybody with "Sweat." That's kind of like the first look. I kinda of did that just for me fans," Bow Wow tells VIBE. "They wanted it so bad. I did it for the fans' sake." The song, dubbed "Right Now," is Bow Wow's most grown single to date. On the track, he finds himself ready to make the night a memorable one with a female companion. We're talking scenes for mature audiences only. Even the production steps up the sexiness and strays away from the pop sensibilities of his past hit singles. Though it was still un-mastered when previewed for VIBE.com, we can say the hook is perfect for Miguel. "You can't base the album off "Sweat." It's really the only pop record on there," Bow Wow explains. (VIBE)

In late November, the rapper defended his decision to delay Underrated.
"But on to whats important, "UNDERRATED" everyone wants to know why its delayed or why is it getting pushed back. I hear yall jokes "His sh*t aint never droppin" it is dropping. "When I Feel like its right tho" my album sounds nothing like what you've heard come out of the camp PERIOD so far. I know yall want this album just as much as i want to deliver it. The thing is tour just ended like 3 n half weeks ago. I left studio to tour which of course set me back. I have to mix all the records which i have just now kinda started. "Sweat" video will be out in a week or 2. Took a minute to finalize all the graphics and detail because of the CGI effects. Also dont forget im stil working on my tv sitcom with Ice Cube as well. I think people forget i got 2 jobs (Rapper/Ator) hahaha.. Record just went to radio as well. Not only that but im trying to get India Irie to sing on "Boy Or Girl" being that that sample you are hearing on that record is her. I figured it would be so meaningful and better with her apart of it live.," [sic] he wrote Saturday (November 27). (Bow Wow Underrated)
Underrated is slated to drop spring 2012.
