Ruff Ryders producer Swizz Beatz has divulged on what fans can anticipate from his upcoming Haute Living solo album.
According to Beatz, the LP will be his most superior project to date.
"I believe it's my best work ever. It's my 'perception of greatness,'" Beatz said in an interview. "I just wanna give everyone the unthinkable. When you think of Swizz, you think of a lot of party things. But this time I have a lot to say. I'm more mature. I just got a lot to talk about." (MTV)
Yesterday, Beatz tweeted the name of his new album.
"MY NEW ALBUM NAME IS (HAUTE LIVING ) BECAUSE THATS MY ART ,FASHION, MUSIC, LIFE STYLE HAUTE MEANS THE HIGHEST LEVEL!"
"SWIZZ BEATZ PRESENT @HAUTELIVING THE ALBUM FOR MUSIC ART FASHION FOR OUR PEOPLE........GET WITH THE HAUTE LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!" (Swizz Beatz's Twitter)
Beatz recently said he was going to feature Jay-Z, Drake and his new wife Alicia Keys on the LP.
"I'm working on my album which is super incredible," he tells OK!. "Got everybody on there from Jay-Z to John Legend to Mary [J. Blige] to Drake. Super amazing album. I'm also working on Lenny Kravitz new album, working with Cold Play. When you're in album mode and you're in producing mode, working with any great artist you have fun and try to create the best music you can create. On one song [Alicia] just played keys on. I don't know, cause I don't know which one I'm going to use. I have a few songs. I'm probably going to drop my single with Mary before the summer is over. I'm shooting for that and I'm looking for fall to be Swizz Beatz mania." (OK Magazine)
Aside from his own accolades, Grammy-winning producer/rapper Kanye West recently called Beatz the best producer ever.
"Listening to "Fancy" ... This is a big statement but Swizz Beats may be the best rap producer of all time... f*ck that... he is," West tweeted Friday (August 13) evening.
"He's original... He's modern... he lives this sh*t for real... he is rap... Yall gone see though... This Swizz year... Yall gone see." (Kanye West's Twitter)
A release date for Haute Living has not yet been revealed.
