AMP Music Minute May 29th
Drake Warming Up For New Album-
Sitting down with MTV, Drizzy expressed how he was ready to get to work on a new album. He even went as far as naming an exact date for him to start recording. That’s being ready!
“I’m really excited to start working on new music. I start like June 18,” Drake told MTV correspondent, Sway. “I got a studio bus out here so me and 40 started working on a couple joints the other night. Just getting warmed up,” he continued on to name tracks he finished on the bus, “I did like the ‘Amen’ track for Meek [Mill] and I did ‘No Lie’ for 2 Chainz.”
Drake then discussed some of more of his new music, including his track with Justin Beiber, which will be featured on the Beibs new album, Believe.
At the time of the interview, Drake was having trouble remembering the name of Justin’s new album, but after recovering only had nice things to say about the track.
“Awkward Justin Bieber moment,” Drizzy joked after questioning whether his song would make the final album. “Yeah, we’ll see. It’s a good song though; produced by Hit-Boy.”
We’ll see, Drizzy.
Jay-Z Signed M.I.A. to Roc Nation Management-
M.I.A. is looking to get ahead in the music industry and right now that means signing on with the right team. While she hasn’t linked up with some of the newer imprints like Taylor Gang (Wiz Khalifa), Young Money (Lil Wayne) or Maybach Music Group (Rick Ross), the Sri Lankan songstress went with diamond in the rough when she signed on to Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation management team.
Glee Hopes to Bring in Adele for Cameo-
The faithful teacher in the FOX hit “Glee”, Mr. Schuester, played by Matthew Morrison is just as nice off the show as he is on the show. The 33-year-old actor/singer had the opportunity to work with the ever elusive Adele in the new movie “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”
When asked about it Morrison sang her praises and went so far as to say that he wanted her to be on the show. Not even to sing, but just because she’s so awesome. “I’d love to see Adele. I don’t think she should sing on the show. I don’t know what she would do but it would be fun to have her on the show!”
He went on to explain the magnitude of Adele in the UK, “It was great working with her, she was amazing, she was very professional and really did a good job and did very well.” He continued, “Coming to London a lot, you can’t get away from her or go without seeing a picture of her so it was great to finally interact with her as a human being, it was fun.”
