- By Bossip Staff

An all-star line-up of artists have contributed their works to aid the relief efforts for the victims of the disaster in Japan.

Music from the hottest artists around has been compiled into Songs for Japan, an all-star album created to raise money for earthquake relief efforts.

Available today on iTunes, the 38-track digital disc includes Nicki Minaj’s “Save Me,” Eminem’s “Love the Way you Lie (ft. Rihanna),” Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable” and Cee Lo Green’s “It’s Okay.” The download is $9.99; a physical double disc will be released next month. The charity album is a joint effort between Universal Music Group, Sony Entertainment Music, Warner Music Group and EMI Music.

More than 10,000 people have been declared dead, according to Japan’s National Police Agency. Proceeds from Songs for Japan will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society to assist survivors.

    No Michael Jackson? We are the world.. Black or White


    Bey looks like an over the hill drag queen..nicki looks like chit as usual.

  • PRPPLE, the only opinion that matters

    Instead of having you lames buy this CD why don’t they just donate their own money which their always flaunting and bragging about instead of donating a penny of your money and pocketing the rest record company or otherwise. Fabulous

    • Unico

      Celebrities are not obligated to donate or give anything to anyone. Even if they were to give their own money for this situation, you would still find some way to criticize.

  • super steph!

    ok…japan is the wealthiest/healthiest nation on earth. why is this happening again?

  • super steph!

    how many people in here have a honda or toyota? or some sony? yah…they get enough from the u.s.

  • Now, n!gga

    Fuc|< those wangstas. Dig deeper and throw a rack of dough at 'em to get the country back in order.

  • JaZzIe91

    No comment because I don’t wanna say anything mean.

  • cotton124

    Well they better have ins. Isn’t that what they told New Orleans. Donate red cross today. They do help. I wouldn’t wish this on no one.

  • whodat

    Japan has their own monetary system. They can print the dough. The real issue is the clean up for the radiation. The UN stepped for Libya. Keep steppin’.

  • what the.

    man you people are mad haters,even this positive thing these artist are doing,you all fined something to hate on.
