Lil’ Kim has a sweet treat for her fans. The Queen Bee is back in the studio working with Bangladesh on her upcoming album.
Fresh off her one-night-only show at New York’s Gramercy Theatre, she dished about her first studio album since 2005’s The Naked Truth.
She has enlisted the platinum hitmaker (Lil Wayne’s “A Milli,” Beyoncé’s “Diva”) as executive producer. “He’s executive-producing it,” the Brooklyn rapper told Wetpaint. “And we do have other producers working on the album, as well.”
The lead single will arrive this summer, produced by Bangladesh. “The first single that’s coming out in late June/first week of July is produced by Bangladesh, for sure.”
While she wouldn’t reveal the title, she did drop a hint: “Sweet dessert!”
Kim has not set a release date, but she promises more surprises for her fans. “I got a lot of gifts for y’all in the month of June,” she said. “I’m a deliverer, I promise y’all.”
In addition to her own music, she has been fostering new talent including Tiffany Foxx and Young Goldie, who she’s worked with on a song called “1Hunnit.”
