Exclusive Interview

Wiz Khalifa on Adele Collabo: "I Hope We Can Put It On the Album"

Describing his track with the British soul singer as "really hippie," Wiz tells 'Fuse News' he's aiming to get it on 'Blacc Hollywood'
 / February 19, 2014

When Wiz Khalifa swung by Fuse to exclusively reveal he's performing at Bonnaroo 2014, he also sat down with Fuse News' Matte Babel to chat about everything from fatherhood to the guests on Blacc Hollywood to the Adele collabo he's recorded and is waiting to unleash on the world.

"It's a cross between [the sounds of] right now and the '60s and '70s. It's really hippie," Wiz tells Fuse News of the song, a track he first revealed to Fuse last year at Jay Z's Made in America festival. "That went everywhere after we talked about it. We still have the record. I just hope that we can put it in the album or maybe we can make something else, too."

As for how the "We Dem Boyz" rapper hooked up with the British soul singer, it seems his wife is partly to thank. "You never really know who enjoys your music and what you do," Wiz says in the interview above. "She's a huge fan of Amber as well. I saw [Adele] at the GRAMMY's and she's like, 'Wiz, move out of the way. I need to take a picture with Amber.' You just never know who you touch with what you do."

During our interview (but not in the above clip), Wiz spoke on other Blacc Hollywood collaborations and revealed his album will include a verse from the late Pimp C and one of his Taylor Gang signees. 

"Ty Dolla $ign is on the album. I'm going to get to show the world what he does on the production and writing standpoint. His EP [which Fuse recently featured on The Mixdown] is amazing, but he does so many other things. I got a verse from Pimp C, the family blessed me. And Snoop is on there, of course."
