Grammy Award-winning producer Swizz Beatz, Everest Entertainment and Atlantic/Warner Records have announced their partnership in producing Swizz’s upcoming, as yet untitled solo album, featuring A-List talent including Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Coldplay, John Legend, Drake and TI, hitting stores this fall.
Swizz Beatz has had a busy year producing and appearing on records for Busta Rhymes and Drake. He has also received a 2010 MTV Video Music Award – Best Hip-Hop Video nomination for his feature with Jay-Z, ‘On To The Next One.’ And of course, his highly publicized marriage to singer Alicia Keys.
“I couldn’t ask to be in a better place right now,” says Beatz. “Both
Everest and the Atlantic/Warner team have been great, and I’m looking
forward to sharing this project with true fans of good music.”
This is Everest’s first foray into the music business, having already produced multiple films, including Sony Pictures Classics’ ‘Mother and Child,’ directed by Rodrigo Garcia, and Fox Searchlight’s ‘Win Win,’ directed by Tom McCarthy (due out in 2011).
