Glasses Malone Explains “Beach Cruiser” Delay

August 5, 2011

Ahead of his debut’s August 30th release, G. Malone speaks on why it took him more than four years to drop the LP.

Glasses Malone has spent years keeping the world waiting on his upcoming debut Beach Cruiser, which spawned its first single “Certified” featuring Akon back in 2007. But after years of staying on the grind, the album is finally seeing the light of day with an August 30th release date.

Speaking with Pow-TV.net, the Cash Money artist explained that the delay was partly due to the fact that he couldn’t get another single off the ground.

“Any major label, as well as Cash Money, when they believe you can to be a star, they want you to have a top 40 single, a big single. That’s a national success. I just ain’t been able to pull one off since ‘Certified.’ ‘Certified’ only went to 80 on the charts, 79. I wasn’t able to get back to that thing, so it was kind of my fault because I couldn’t deliver the goods of a classic big enough single in this time period. Shit, they had to make some money moves for it to make it make sense for me in the lane that I was doing.”
