The Perfect Storm is the eighth studio album by American rapper Twista. The album was released on November 9, 2010. The album debuted with 14,939 copies at #38. The album had sold 19,000 by November 21, 2010.[9] The album was produced mostly by The Legendary Traxster.

Singles[edit]

The first buzz single was originally scheduled to be "Ringtone" which featured additional production by Timbaland and leaked via the internet in June 2010.[10] Because of its leak the song was scrapped as a single choice and "I Do" was released instead on July 13, 2010. The album's lead single is Make a Movie. It was released on August 24, 2010. The single originally featured R&B singer T-Pain rather than Chris Brown (both of whom made a song together), but was changed due to sample clearance.
