The Source Magazine spoke with one of our favorite songwriters, Angela Hunte, on the red carpet for the 2013 SESAC Pop Music Awards at the New York Public Library. Hunte who recently co-wrote Snoop Lion’s “Reincarnated,” and is probably best known for penning Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind,” is always in the studio with the biggest names in music. She told The Source that she recently worked with Jennifer Hudson and Ledisi on their upcoming projects, but the session that most peaked our interest was Miley Cyrus!
“Miley is amazing, she is amazing, she was a sweetheart and super professional. She was a pleasure to work with, I had a ball. We had fun. It wasn’t even like we were working, we were just laughing and having a good time with Diplo and its been fun. I’ve been working a lot with Diplo, that’s my boy,” Hunte told The Source exclusively.
So did Diplo just call you up to jam with Miley?
Angela Hunte: Absolutely, that’s what it is. If he’s doing something or he’s working on something he’s like, “Hey Angela come through I’m working on it” and he was like “I’m getting ready to do a record with Miley, why don’t you come to the studio?”
This new Miley Cyrus album is probably the most anticipated project of the year!
Angela Hunte: Let me tell you something, I heard some of her records and it’s f*cking incredible! I was completely shocked. I can’t believe it and it’s not forced it doesn’t sound like they forced Miley to be this person she’s not, it’s her just with a brand new sound!
The Mike Will Made It produced Miley Cyrus album still does not have a release date, but Hunte is positive the project will blow your mind.
ALSO, at a recent Wango Tango concert, will.i.am played the track that he did with Miley Cyrus, Fall Down. He said, “I’ve got a new album out right now called #willpower and I did a song with someone who’s very talented and an amazing artist by the name of Miley Cyrus. This song is my favourite song off of #willpower”. The crowd seemed to love it.
