(AllHipHop News) Lil Waynes highly anticipated album Rebirth is finally due in stores tomorrow (February 2) after months of delays and shuffled release dates.
The albums first single is On Fire, which has been enjoying regular rotation on video and radio outlets nationwide.
The track samples a portion of Amy Hollands track Shes On Fire, which was originally featured in the Brian DePalmas classic 1983 gangster flick, Scarface.
Cool & Dre discussed the album, which contains five productions from their production company Record Room Productions.
“One night I was watching Scarface and I woke up in the morning with Hollands ‘Shes On Fire’ in my head, Andre Dre Lyon said of the tracks origins. I called up Cool and told him that we should transform the song using the guitars in the song and work with this song with Wayne, Dre continued. We redid the whole beat and kept the ‘Shes on Fire’ vocal sample. We gave it to Wayne and he did what only Wayne can do and killed it with his guitar playing spitting and singing. I knew our collaboration would take this track to the level.”
The pair also produced Rebirths second single Da Da Da features a bass playing Lil Wayne, over a mash-up of Pop, Rock, R&B and Hip-Hop.
Its something Rick James would bug out on. Its Cool & Dre hot, added Marcello Cool Valenzano, who with partner Dre also created the tracks for “I Die,” “Paradise” and “Get A Life.”
Dre predicted that Lil Waynes latest album would open doors for many upcoming urban artists across the country with its diverse sounds.
There are so many artists who create music outside of R&B and Hip-Hop that we believe Rebirth will help open avenues and create a lane for these type of artists, Dre said. I remember a time where Prince and The Revolution ruled the charts. I’d love to see music become diverse again. Wayne is more than just a Hip-Hop artist, he’s quickly becoming the face of a generation. We’re proud to have been given this tremendous opportunity.
Cool & Dre are working on the new records with Yung Jeezy, Wale, Young Money, Travie of Gym Class Heroes, Bow Wows Cash Money Records debut, Every Other and The Games single Big Money.
Additionally, their production company has been tapped to work with Birdman and Lil Waynes Like Father Like Son Part 2 and The Carter 4.
