In an interview with Essence.com, the former first lady of Ruff Ryders talked new music, love life and residing in London.
Some highlights below:
On her new album:
The album is coming out this year, for sure. It took a long time just because I wanted to make sure that it was perfect and right. I’m really happy with it. In fact, I’m more than happy with it – I love it! You definitely will hear me evolve, and you will hear my growth. But, at the same time, I really wanted to bridge my core audience with where I am now. I didn’t want anybody to feel like they were left out. And, I think I did that.
On marrying her boyfriend:
I am [still happily in love], thankfully! He better [ask me to marry him]! (Big laughs.) Seriously! Ha! But, right now, we’re really, really happy.On life in London:I walk everywhere when I’m there. It’s so eclectic. It’s New York on steroids. There are so many cultures and sounds, and people and fashion. Chicks are so fly. I live in a neighborhood where there’s a lot of West Indian culture, so it’s nice. I have to always come back because my mother would kill me if I didn’t, but right now that’s where I’m at.
