Karmin scored a deal with L.A. Reid at Epic Records after their YouTube covers of Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown went viral. Now the pop duo, who released their 6-song EP Hello last spring, is putting the finishing touches on their full-length debut.
They recorded 25-30 songs for the album, which is pretty much done and due this fall. The first single is set to drop in early June. “We’re really excited about this. It’s a very unique track,” Nick told Rap-Up TV at the BMI Pop Awards.
While they wouldn’t reveal too much, Amy did say that she will be rapping on the track and there may be some familiar faces in the video. “We’re trying to see if we can get some cameos at least in the video,” said the newly-blonde singer.
They also plan to tour this summer with another act and may bring a furry new friend on the road. “I want to get a dog,” said Nick.
