R&B singer Trey Songz has opened up on the chances of hitting the studio with Drake for a collaboration album in the near future.
While not ruling out the possible duet project, Songz said fans should just expect more collaborations for the time being.
"We'll have to see," Songz explained in an interview. "That's crazy. We always talked about that when -- life. Look forward to seeing more music from us. I think we'll make music together as long as we're both making music. We've done some songs for his album, but we do songs all the time. There's no telling if those songs will be on the album or not. I'm sure we'll work together again before his album is out in stores, but we got some special stuff brewed up." (Rap-Up)
Showing up at Songz's MySpace Music concert over the summer, Drizzy displayed his admiration for his "Successful" sidekick.
"New York City," Drizzy told the crown from a hidden place in the venue. "I gotta take the time to do this, to introduce you to the greatest R&B singer of our generation. Trey, Songz, baby!" (Miss Info)
Rapper Fabolous is reportedly hitting the studio with Ne-Yo and Ryan Leslie for a group project.
"We're talking about a triple-team collaboration that's really gonna hurt the game," Leslie revealed in an interview. "Your boy Fab, the boy Ne-Yo and yours truly on the board. It's really gonna put a hurting on everybody...The table is open -- if you're bringing something to the table, you can break bread. It's about conceptualizing. It's not gonna be a project that's thrown together. It's gonna be a real round table, and we're gonna talk about really putting something in the atmosphere that contributes something that's never been done before." (MTV)
Drake is currently putting together his debut album, Thank Me Later.
"I'm able to walk around, so I'm working very hard on the album," he revealed in an interview. "I've been out of the scene for so long because I've been off my leg...Sitting at home in your apartment and having a doctor come over every day and eating healthy and going to the gym -- there's not much of a rap album to be made off that. I have to get my inspiration and start seeing things and going to dinners and meeting people again and just finding stories to tell for this album. I'm trying to make something timeless...[It's] an R&B song...It's sexy. It's slow, but there's an energy to it. I rap on it. Me and Dream both sing on it. It's cool. [It has a] message that's never really been explored by male singers. This song is sort of like an anthem for women, like pre-the club. It's like an anthem for you to be at your house with your girlfriends getting ready, what you listen to before you get there." (Billboard)
