Christina Milian is
preparing to release her third album, So Amazin', due April 25. The first
single from the album will be "Say I," a collaboration with labelmate
Young Jeezy. A video for the Cool & Dre-produced song was shot Feb. 11-12
by director Ray Kay in Los Angeles. So Amazin' is the follow-up to 2004's
It's About Time, which contained the hit single, "Dip It Low,"
featuring Fabolous. In July, Milian will also star in her eighth major film role,
Pulse. "Singing and acting are both my passions," said Milian.
"They go hand in hand."
According to various
online reports, Young Jeezy's associate, rapper Slick Pulla, was shot near a
popular pizza shop in Atlanta. The rapper was reportedly involved in an altercation
with a man said to be intoxicated. An argument ensued and the man allegedly
shot Slick Pulla, who was treated at a local hospital. Representatives for Slick
Pulla refused to comment on the shooting.
