Ludacris is hosting the Billboard Music Awards tonight in Las Vegas, and though he'll spend the majority of the evening introducing the biggest artists and best songs of the year, he's got news of his own to share.

Before getting ready for the big show, Luda dished backstage at the BBMAs to Billboard that Ludaversal, the long-awaited follow-up to 2010's Battle of the Sexes, is going to (finally!) see its release this fall.

"It is almost done, we're about 90% done," Luda told Billboard at the BBMAs. He also mentioned that we'll hear the first single(s) in June or July, which means that "Party Girls" wasn't the first track to be dropped from the new album, apparently. There are "a lot of other things in the works" for the future as well--including the seventh Fast and the Furious movie, which comes out in April 2015--so maybe a few more star-crossed collaborations will spring up with Luda at the helm int he months ahead.
