Lil Wayne Encourages Christina Milian to 'Try New Things' on Young Money Debut
Since officially signing with Young Money over the summer, Christina Milian has been in the studio working on a new album. The “Dip It Low” singer stopped by “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” on Power 106 to discuss her YMCMB debut and what it’s like having Lil Wayne as her boss.
“Wayne just gets his artists, which is great,” she said. “I have a very one-on-one business relationship with everybody from Mack [Maine] to Wayne. They’re just very involved in the project as far as bringing the music, playing songs, just giving their input.”
She’s hoping to put out a single and video in the near future so she can perform it on NBC’s hit show “The Voice,” where she is a social media correspondent. “I really want to pick the perfect single though,” said Christina, whose last album So Amazin’ was released in 2006. “It’s been a second since I’ve been out musically, so I do not want to fail and I don’t believe in failure, so I just try new things and figure out the pieces.”
But she’s in no rush. “That’s one thing that’s great about Wayne. He’s like, ‘Work with different producers, take your time, but at the same time, try new things. Don’t be stuck on one thing.'”
