Elton Plans All Hip-hop Album
SIR ELTON JOHN is going hip-hop on his next album because his record label boss, JIMMY IOVINE, wants the ROCKET MAN to work with DR DRE and EMINEM. The British rocker is a longtime fan of hip-hop and admits he's thrilled to get the chance to work with the genre's biggest names. He says, "I've got plans to do another album which will be completely different. I wanna do a hip-hop album with some people. "It was a suggestion. It was Jimmy Iovine, who runs my record company; he said, 'Listen, I want to put you in with Dr Dre and with Eminem, and with PHARRELL (WILLIAMS) and with TIMBALAND and all the best people and I just think it's a great idea."
