Video: Swizz Beatz on “Dear Anne” Leak

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Swizz doesn’t seem too ticked off about the leak (maybe that can be attributed to the fact that the song wasn’t making it on Lil Wayne’s album), possibly shooting a video for it, and also mentions that he’s no longer planning on releasing his Haute Living project in a conventional way anymore:

“At first, when the “Anne” song got leaked, I was a little bit upset because I felt that it should have got out the proper way, but then I’m like… what’s the proper way of music getting out in 2011? Shit, I’m not even calling my album an album no more. So it leaking and dropping like that sorta goes with my plan. It made a big splash: you know about it, the world knows about it. It got to stand on its own feet. Millions and millions of people talking about it. Trending topic… so it got the proper exposure. I just think that the traditional way of me doing music is over.

Swizz Talks Haute Living Guests Appearances

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Swizz Beatz sat down with Paper Mag to discuss his new position as Creative Director over at Reebok and spilled the beans on some of his Haute Living album guests, including a song he has with Bono and Kanye West called “Skyscrapers”:

Can you tell me a bit about your upcoming album?

Haute Living is the album. Super amazing album. I hope that people feel that way–I do. The first single is out right now. It’s called “Everyday,” featuring myself and Eve. We got Lenny Kravitz on the album, Lil’ Wayne on the album, Bono is on the album, Jay-Z is on the album.

Bono?

Yeah. We got this song–it’s me, Bono and Kanye on this one song called “Skyscrapers.” I recorded with Kanye in the studio and then I recorded with Bono in this actual studio right here. Mary J. Blige is on the album; John Legend is on the album. But they’re on the album in super amazing ways. It’s not like a compilation–it’s a nice mixture of creativity. I had no boundaries with it; I had great partners on the album–Reebok was supporting me.
