Eve is starting to creep back up on our radars and the Philly rapper will likely be demanding our undivided attention when her new album drops, which she says won’t be long from now. In an interview with Essence.com, Eve opened up about her new music, where she’s at creatively, and more importantly whether we’ll be hearing wedding bells anytime soon. Here are a few bits from the interview:

When her new album, “Lip Lock” is coming out
The album is coming out this year, for sure. It took a long time just because I wanted to make sure that it was perfect and right. I’m really happy with it. In fact, I’m more than happy with it – I love it!

Who she wants to work with musically
My dream collaboration is with Lauryn Hill. Is that ever gonna happen? Who knows! But there’s still a lot I feel like musically I could do.

What artists she’s listening to now
I listen to every thing, all kinds of stuff. I’ve been obsessed with the Nas and Damian Marley record, Distant Relatives. I feel like a lot of people haven’t heard it, and it’s amazing.

Whether she’s still in love
I am, thankfully!

Will her boo, British entrepreneur and race car driver Maximillion Cooper, be putting a ring on it soon
He better! (Big laughs.) Seriously! Ha! But, right now, we’re really, really happy.

Where she finds inspiration
Well, I’ve relocated to London, so right now it’s London. I walk everywhere when I’m there. It’s so eclectic. It’s New York on steroids. There are so many cultures and sounds, and people and fashion. Chicks are so fly. I live in a neighborhood where there’s a lot of West Indian culture, so it’s nice. I have to always come back because my mother would kill me if I didn’t, but right now that’s where I’m at.

Could you imagine a Lauryn Hill-Eve collabo? Hotness. It’s good to know Eve is finding inspiration—and love—abroad. She just might come back to the states with a new last name. What do you think?

    What do her dating white men have to do with anything i see nothing wrong with that you like who you like anyway i always been a fan of her music i also would like to see her acting again

  • realadulttalk

    Eve and Lauryn Hill???? They are not of the same caliber…I would NEVER want to hear that collabo. I think she’d do better just getting married and focusing on life–I’ve never thought Eve was some great rapper or anything (seems many do–but not I) so I don’t care if she never makes music again especially after the whole Tambourine fiasco.

    Go head Eve do your thang girl!

    I can’t wait and I know it’s going to be dope Eve please redeem the female emcee and prove that we care more about man taking care of us and the other ratchet lyrics we have been subjected to lately.

  • jozi

    Eve, congrats to you and your man! Can’t wait to hear your new work!!

  • Nat

    Eve is going to bring the hotness? Please. Eve is only concerned with finding sponsors. Interesting that she is now scouring the world for white men to lace her. Collabo with Lauren Hill? How delusional.

      I think the thumbs down are from those who have forgotten what Eve has been doing for the past-what? 10 years? I know what you mean…she went from white man to white man for a while. She has a TERRIBLE rep.

      • Kay

        Your upset cause she dated white men? Pure ignorance

        • realadulttalk

          Why would I be mad?? Goodness I can’t stand a simple-minded person. What she does with her body is her biz…but she has a rep for being a wh*re for white men with money. That I ended with she has a terrible was a context clue…do you know what that means?? Lmao

          • Kay

            And you still sound ignorant.

            • realadulttalk

              Now you just sound redundant…and rather stupid. Good day!
