The day that every Rusher for months has been waiting for, Big Time Rush’s much anticipated second album Elevate has been released!
The boys of BTR got fans excited when a couple months ago photos of 11/21/11 began popping up on Twitter in various forms of food, props, and silverware. No one knew what the date meant but many began to speculate it had something to do with new music. Finally the quartet let everyone know that 11/21/11 was the release of their upcoming new album at the time still untitled. With everyone around the world buzzing about what new music was coming from the popular Nickelodeon band, BTR held a live Ustream with fans and revealed the album title to be Elevate and the first single Music Sounds Better With U.
Since then, Rushers have consistently kept excitement for the new album at an all time high, getting the word Elevate trending worldwide on a weekly basis. Last night, BTR and fans stayed up until midnight EST for the release of the album. As soon as the clock stroke 12:00 am, social media outlets everywhere exploded with excitement from Rushers as those who pre-purchased Elevate on iTunes began to see the album download into their library. There were so many downloads of the new album that within 30 minutes of being available on iTunes, Big Time Rush’s Elevate shot up to #4 on the Top Ten overall album list and #2 on the Top Ten Pop list. Way to go!
