Jay-Z’s Wish For New Album

Posted on December 31st, 2010

Yes, Jay-Z will be recording another album. No, there is no word yet if it will the fourth installment of his Blueprint series. And no, whether this will come before or after his collaborative album with Kanye West, Watch The Throne, is still unknown. Still, Hov is obviously looking to set the bar high with who he invites in the studio with him. Perched atop his wish list is Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

Seeing as how he’s already worked with him on “Beach Chair” (which appeared on 2006’s Kingdom Come) and Coldplay’s “Lost,” it shouldn’t be too much of a hassle to make it work again. Even with their past, Jay continues to harbor the utmost respect for Martin, even referring to as an extended family member.

”He’s [Martin’s] a brother from another mother,” Jay-Z told BBC.co.uk. “I see him more than my own brother. Actually, I do.”

He added: “[He’s] one of the geniuses of our generation. Any time you can collaborate with that sort of genius, you jump at the chance, I don’t care who you are.”

Tonight at the Cosmopolitan Casino and Resort in Las Vegas, Jay and Coldplay will be performing in an invite-only show to help ring in the new year.
