Aretha Franklin is teaming up with Babyface and Andre 3 Stacks for some new music.
Franklin celebrated her 72nd birthday at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New York City on Saturday that was packed with a star-studded list of well-wishers including Denzel Washingtion and Clive Davis. During an interview, she let it be known that new music is coming and that she would be working with Babyface on new tracks.
Babyface is currently performing with Toni Braxton in the Broadway musical “After Midnight,” celebrating Duke Ellington’s Cotton Club years but Aretha was eager for him to finish so he has time to work on her music.
“I’m just waiting for him to finish that so he can finish my tracks please,” Franklin told Billboard.
But thats not all, the birthday girl also let it be known that Andre 3000 would also be working on the tracks. Unfortunately, she had a tough time remembering his name, “And I think Andre 2000 – is it two or three? 3000 is going to be doing some of the tracks with him,” she stated.
Andre is also a pretty busy guy, he stars in the new Jimi Hendrix biopic, Jimi: All Is By My Side, that premiered at South by Southwest (SXSW) 2014, and is getting ready for a Coachella performance and upcoming Outkast tour. At the end of the day we hope that the trio gets together sooner than later and releases these anticipated tracks.
Reality Show Curse Strikes Again? Lyrica Anderson & A1 May Be Searching For A Storyline, Not A Separation
Here we go again. Another reality TV couple bites the dust … or gets hella dramatic on social media in order to secure a new storyline. You decide!
Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star Lyrica Anderson had everyone talking when she took to Snapchat to post this little message.
The singer/songwriter outed her husband A1 Bentley as a cheater and vowed that she was #single … all on Snapchat. We’re calling BS, and here’s why — Princess Love. This whole “my man is cheating so I’m outing him on social media” must be in the Love & Hip Hop playbook. Ray J’s wife pulled the same stunt just a few weeks ago and we all know how that ended … with them back together. Honestly, this happens every season, and every season we fall for it. Well, no more.
Lyrica, we know you just put out new music and you want everyone to hear it, but this ain’t the way, sis. And A1, nice try with the whole, “I’m going to delete all her pics on IG” move, but we’ve been here, done that. We not falling for these antics anymore so it would be really dope if y’all would stop playing games and just be a happy married couple. Save the forced drama for Joseline Hernandez.
