Nivea Talks New Album, Christina Milian And Why She Doesn’t Listen To Beyoncé

January 13, 2015  |  


Slowly but surely, Nivea is making her way back to the spotlight. During a recent interview with Team Curtains, the mother of four discussed her new album, Nivea Revealed, his issue with Christina Milian and Lil Wayne’s relationship and why she doesn’t listen to artists from her generation. Check out some highlights from her interview below.

On her new album, Nivea Revealed:

“I’m currently working on one [an album] now. It’s called ‘Nivea Revealed’ and you can expect something at the top of next year. ‘Nivea Revealed’ is on the way. The title is really the premise for the album. ‘Nivea Revealed’ will be my way to expose and reveal a lot about me that people don’t know. Not just me personally, but the story and my journey and why, what happened and where I am now.”

On the sound of her new project:

“I’m pretty much staying traditional R&B, but it’s got hip-hop and my essence. I’m R&B and hip hop and I’m sticking with that. That’s my lane.”

On why she doesn’t listen to Beyoncé:

“Everything I listen to is old. I love Brandy and Beyoncé and I do listen to Brandy’s third album, but I’m not really a fan of listening to too many artists who came out when I did or started when I did because we all kind of pull from each other anyway. My upbringing is what I come back to because that’s where I got my voice and my sound.”

On juggling motherhood and her career:

“I’ve had a lot of time home with my kids and I’m just now taking that time away. They’re at a certain age to where I feel like I can do that. My youngest is almost 5. I have twin boys that are 8 and my daughter is 9.”

On the status of her relationships with her exes Lil Wayne and The Dream:

“We’re very much great co-parents. [Wayne] is very much involved with Neil, his son with me and the rest of his sons. We make sure all of the boys see each other. The children front is good. As co-parents, we’re great. That’s all that matters.”

On her issue with Christina Milian:

“For me, it’s been that we are mothers of siblings. It’s such a damn crazy a—story. She married the same dude I did. She has a daughter by my ex-husband who is now her ex-husband as well…Now she’s dating my other baby daddy. Go figure. I haven’t talked to her. The only thing that I was concerned about was making sure that Violet, her daughter, was in my kids’ lives. They know their little sister and that’s my main thing. All of the other craziness is just people being damn crazy. There’s nothing I can do about that. I definitely don’t support the craziness, but it is what it is. All I can do is focus on raising my children and telling them that people are crazy in the world so they don’t be surprised like their mommy was.”

Speaking of Christina Milian, it does not appear that she intends to pump the brakes on her whirlwind romance with Lil Wayne anytime soon. Just yesterday, for Man Crush Monday, the E! reality star deemed the rapper her Man Crush “eeerday.”
