Ne-Yo and Game: The R.E.D. Album  - In 2011, Los Angeles rapper Game released The R.E.D. Album. Inspired by his well-known affinity for the color, Game says "red" was also meant as short hand for "rededication" in honor of his rededication to hip hop. Similarly, Ne-Yo recently announced that his fifth studio album will be given the same name, only this time "R.E.D." is an acronym for "realizing every dream."(Photos from left: Ric Douglas/PictureGroup,  Jason Merritt/Getty Images)

T-Pain and The Beatles: Revolver - When The Beatles released their seventh studio album Revolver in 1966, it featured a distinctively harsher sound as they moved away from the folk singles that made them popular to focus on a more electric rock-guitar sound. T-Pain had the same idea, capitalizing the first and last "R's" in his 2011 album RevolveR's title, emphasizing the word "evolve" left in lower case letters, to highlight his evolution as an artist.(Photos from left: RCA Records, Capitol Records)

Three years after its release, Bay Area rap group Luniz released an album of the same title, featuring their popular hit "I Got 5 on It."(Photos from left: C Note Records, Priority Records)

In 2005, J. Lo's Rebirth suffered the same fate, coming in at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 after earning the distinction of being her first album to miss the one million mark in sales.(Photos from left: Cash Money Records, Epic Records)
