DJ Premier Working On Christina Aguilera's New Album

Primo links back up with the pop star for her seventh LP.

DJ Premier is teaming back up with Christina Aguilera. Primo, who lent his production skills to the pop star’s 2006 album Back to Basics, is working with the Voice judge on her upcoming seventh LP, which serves as the follow-up to last year’s lukewarm Bionic.

“We are gonna work on her new LP...she’s ready to start,” he tweeted at a Christina Aguilera fan. “I haven’t made any tracks yet...we hung out a few days ago in NY and she’s just starting it.”

Mean Joe Preem previously worked on nine tracks for 2010’s Bionic, but none of the songs made the final cut as they didn’t fit with the futuristic aesthetic of the LP. On Back to Basics, he helmed five of the 13 tracks on the first disc, including album single “Ain’t No Other Man.”

    preem is also workin with masta ace, inclunding scoring his documentary .. dunno why hhdx didn't mention it, I asked him via twitter.. can't understand the hate, premo is ALWAYS helpin out underground artists and such, plus the tracks he did with aguilera came out very dope, nothin wrong with gettin some extra money.. y'all sayin work with jigga, do something with nas.. it all depends on the artist, premo mentions every time that he's ready to work with em whenever they want, not to mention that hov rejected 3 preem beats for bp3 ...

    Niggaz need to get off my man Premo's nuts, he get'n bread, he's not a "super producer" making $100k a track, at least he gonn' bring in some cake, and he respects Christina cause she respects him, she know's his history and came correct, that's why they work'n together. As far as NaS goes, favorite MC of all time, but at the end of the daya if he wanted to make an album with Preem he would've, Preem been wait'n as well as AZ. Preem has his own radio show and more time, than most of ya'll think, I'ma dj/producer as well, and when the artist is ready to collab, not me just send'n tracks to them, cus that format ain't always the best, then we can get it in, if we don't most of the time it's on the artist. Do ya thing Premo

    Premier, Whyyyyyyy? please help out these whack new rap artists get their shit together instead of helping these dime a dozen pop singers man

      Dime a dozen pop artist's? Apparently you know nothing about music and you don't know your facts. Do your research. Christina Aguilera doesn't fit into the pop mold. She strived away from that after her first album. She made a major transition and took control of her career. That's something any other artist wouldn't have the guts to do. Christina has done many genres of music, she is one of the best singers of my generation. If you listened to an album of hers, (B2B, Bionic, etc.) you'd know how out-of-this-world she is. She's a rare talent.. respect her. Geez! I hate when people diss Christina and give people all the credit who don't deserve the fame they have. Christina deserves all the respect. Sorry, it just really aggravates me when I read posts like "dime a dozen pop singers..". She helps me pull through times when I need her music the most. You can't listen to other artist's music and except them to be as real, raw, and relatable than Christina's.
