New CDs being released Dec. 8 include:

chrisbrowncdChris Brown, Graffiti

The first single, “I Can Transform Ya,” is probably what the R&B singer is hoping for himself (check out his Atlanta show).

“Glee: The Music – Season 1, Volume 2”

The TV show has created a cult-like following in just one season. Listen to some of the reasons why.

Jimmy Buffett, “Buffet Hotel”

Parrotheads have new music to worship. The singer/songwriter’s latest CD includes 12 new singles and a 24-page booklet.

The Clipse, “Til the Casket Drops”

Rap duo drops its much anticipated third CD.

buffetcdGucci Mane, “The State vs. Radric Davis”

The Atlanta rapper, who had his CD release party last night at Esso, has had his share of legal woes recently. Could that be marketing tie-ins with the album title?

Donny Osmond and Marie Osmond

The “Dancing with the Stars” king and NutriSystem queen team up for their first CD together in more than 3 decades.

Diddy and Kasim Reed, back in the day

These days, Kasim Reed is busy preparing to become Atlanta’s mayor. Years ago at Howard University, he had his hands full keeping Sean Combs out of trouble.

“In college I was known for being extra wild,” the artist, known these days as Diddy, told Buzz during a Thursday afternoon interview. “Kasim was one of the guys who said, come here. That’s the way he always was in school.”

Diddy, whose latest project, “Last Train to Paris,” will be released next year, was reminiscing from a 12th floor suite at the downtown W on stop to promote Ciroc vodka (we found a recipe online for the “Ciroc Diddy,” a cocktail made with one and a half parts Ciroc and three parts lemonade. Here’s a photo of the libation, from allrecipes.com).

CD releases: Nov. 23-24 include Rihanna, Adam Lambert, Susan Boyle

We usually get a mix of major releases and box sets or reissues just in time for holiday shopping. Here are some of the new CD releases for Nov. 23 and 24.

rihannaSusan Boyle, “I Dreamed a Dream”

This Brit singer took the world, and most notably Simon Cowell, by storm on “Britain’s Got Talent” competition this summer. She was runner-up

Beyonce, “I Am … Yours. An Intimate Performance a the Wynn Las Vegas”

This CD/DVD is related to the “Sasha Fierce” deluxe reissue with bonus tracks. Not sure how much “bonus” there is though.

James Brown, “The Godfather’s Smackdown: Live!”

This CD/DVD pulls from the late performer’s 1980 U.S. tour. But the title alone might be worth the buy.

Bill Cosby, “Bill Cosby Presents the Cosnarati: State of Emergency”

It’s being touted as a socially conscious rap album. Knowing Cosby’s history, we’re sure it will ruffle at least a few feathers.

Bob Dylan, “Christmas in the Heart”

Holiday music with bonus CD
