If you enter a club or party anywhere in the world, chances are good that the Cupid Shuffle will be played at some point. While the song and its accompanying dance were a resounding success, the same can’t be said for Cupid‘s debut, Time for a Change (partly due to the fact that it was released during the infamous Kanye vs. 50 album sales battle). Now that he’s been freed from his contracts at Asylum and Atlantic, the Lafayette, Louisiana native hopes to continue doing what he does best at his new independent home, T.O.C. Muzik. The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree on the new, dance-floor ready record, The Love Slide. Once again produced by Mr. Phat and complete with an instructional video (available at his Myspace page), expect The Love Slide to add another hit to Cupid’s musical résumé. The only question is: will he need to update his cover sheet in ’09?
