Although DJ Envy has released a Blok Party mixtape/album on behalf of Desert Storm and hosted Red Cafe‘s “album-before-the-album,” The Co-Op, he has never had an album on which he could credit himself as the sole headliner – until now. Ready to cast his line into the vast ‘DJ album’ sea, the Queens native will release It’s Moovin’ sometime in April. For the first single, Envy creates something that old-school and new-school fans alike would just love to Download. As Lil’ Kim describes her experiences with an online lover, T-Pain pays homage to those who inspired him to pick up the autotuner in the first place by sampling Zapp & Roger’s Computer Love on the beat and his inspired hook; Charlie Wilson (who did background vocals on the original Computer Love) even makes a guest appearance. Though Computer Love was written when Windows and Apple were in their infancy, Download updates the record to bring its classic appeal to a new generation of listeners.
