The rapper would mix English, Spanish and French songs in 'The Last Zulu' because he wants to speak to his fans in their tongues.
Hip-hop star Q-Tip is planning to thank his loyal fans around the world by recording tracks in three languages for his next album. The "Vivrant Thing" hitmaker is heading into the studio in February to begin work on "The Last Zulu", which will feature songs in English, French and Spanish.
And he's now studying hard to master his language skills, as he wants to show his gratitude to all his devotees. He tells Entertainment Weekly, "I feel like my fans have been so gracious over the years. They're so smart that I want to extend the grace back to them and speak to them in their tongues. I'm going to have to brush up... It's going to have a lot of that energy, and it's going to feel really big and anthemic. It's going to be unlike anything I've done before."
