Wale To Be Featured In UK Ballet With Boy George, The Kills and Others


(AllHipHop News) United States rap star Wale has been tapped to be featured in a groundbreaking production by the Royal Ballet in the United Kingdom.

Wale will be joined by pop singers like Boy George, The Kills, Johnathan Pierce of The Drums and Allison Mosshart, who will take part in the ballet “Carbon Life.”

Producer Mark Ronson teamed with producer Andrew Wyatt of Swedish pop band Miike Snow, to write nine songs for the ballet, which is being choreographed by Wayne McGregor of the Royal Ballet and orchestrated by Rufus Wainwright.

Over 18 dancers will be featured on the stage of the Royal Opera House, in what has been labeled a “one of a kind” production.

According to reports, “Carbon Life” is being produced in an attempt to reshape the Royal Ballets’s image.

“Carbon Life” is slated to open in April.

    What?

    Is Wale contributing the music for this production or is he actually participating in this show? This stupid article is very vague, it offers no clarification on what capacity he’s involved in.

    And wow, Boy George? Where has he been all these years? He practically fell off the Earth after that 80s mega hit Karma Chameleon! He hasn’t been relevant since. The only news he made after that hit was abuse with a gay guy in England. I believe he had to do community service for that.

    But what strange bedfellows if Wale and Boy George collaborate or get involved with each other in some capacity.

  • I seriously doubt that Boy George is capable of doing any ballet dance.
