Former G-Unit singer Olivia has opened up about what she plans to include on her upcoming new album, Show the World, and who fans can expect to hear as guest features.
According to Olivia, the project will feature cuts from Missy Elliot, Ne-Yo, Brian Cox and more.
The album 'Show The World' is coming soon; it's completely done. We're still working on a date. I got Missy Elliot on there, Ne-Yo, Brian Cox. The album is real sexy but I'm also talking about love, dabbling in a little heartbreak, things of that nature. I believe in approach. I might say things that are a little bit nasty but because I sing so sweet, you can't really tell [laughs]. But I'm also not saying any outlandish things. I'm just speaking from my heart and saying how I feel. Majority of my music is a true story. It's usually relatable to either myself, a best friend or someone really close to me, so it's always gonna be personal." (Hip Hop N More)
In late December, the singer talked about taking a sexy approach to the album.
"I got a single called 'Take It Off' and it was actually leaked," Olivia explained in an interview, "which was a good thing so it's been picking up really really good. The album is completely done. The single is basically talking about taking it off, obviously...I keep the studio really really hot so most people who know me know that if you come into the studio with me, you gonna be sweating. So I think that's where [the concept] came from...I'm a very sensual person, so that's usually what I write about and that's where I'm going with it. The album is real sexy but I'm also talking about love, might dabble a little heartbreak, not me of course, stuff like that." (Vlad TV)
Earlier this year, Olivia hit up SOHH to discuss her new mixtape, Under the Radar.
"Probably only three joints are remixes, everything else is original," Olivia told SOHH. "It's crazy, it's crazy. And that's where you see me with most of my collabs because on the actual album I personally didn't want any collabs because I felt like every time you saw me, it was with a collaboration. So I just threw them all on the mixtape and the album, you'll get all me." (SOHH)
