Jadakiss Asked To Change Album Title, Denies Retirement

Jadakiss was forced to change the name of his upcoming solo album after receiving negative feedback from retailers. The project, formerly titled Kiss My Ass has been officially changed to The Last Kiss.

“I had to change the name of my album,” 'Kiss explained in an interview with video show The Best of Both Offices [click to view]. “Kiss My Ass wasn't testing well at retail. Not even with the exclamations or none of that. So we had to switch it to The Last Kiss.”

After changing the title to The Last Kiss, fans felt that this was his way of signifying that it would be his last solo effort. Jada has been quick to dispel any fears of his retirement.

“Some people asked me is it my last album. Nah, it's just ... the first album was Kiss The Game Goodbye, the second one was The Kiss of Death [click to read], so this one was The Last Kiss. It's the closing of a trilogy... It's the last time ‘Kiss’ is going to be in the album titles. This is why this is The Last Kiss.”

Jadakiss also revealed that he will be collaborating with Young Jeezy on a track, and that he is a few songs away from finishing the album. He also said that he may use the title Kiss My Ass for a nearly completed mixtape he plans to put out sometime in the very near future.

The Last Kiss will hit stores on December 9th.
