B.o.B Wants to Produce … A Country Album
B.o.B has made a name for himself with hit singles like 'Nothin' on You' and 'Airplanes,' and now the 22-year-old rapper tells a Singapore newspaper that wants to produce a country album.
“I want to produce a country album for a country singer,” the Georgia native told Today. “I feel like country music has a certain kind of pocket. It all sonically [comes together]. Are you ready to get satisfied sonically?”
B.o.B certainly has the cred to do it. He's collaborated with the likes of Bruno Mars, Paramore singer Hayley Williams and more, helping launch the success of his debut album, 'The Adventures of Bobby Ray.'
“It’s not just about the song. It’s about the chemistry,” he said of the artists he works with. “Really, when you’re making a song with another artist, it’s really like a business venture. A joint venture. You really have to be careful who you start your business with … And everybody who I gravitate towards, I feel good about.”
While B.o.B works on his country collaboration, he is also setting his sights for his own release on which the rapper will tap into the new age scene. “I want to do an album that is completely meditation music,” he added. “It’s going to be like a little project. It won’t just be for people who like to sleep to it, meditate or are into yoga. It’ll be like even if you weren’t into all that, you’ll be listening to it and thinking: ‘Man, this is dope, yeah!’”
