Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra is all set to make her debut in the world of music, as she is currently recording a music album. News has it that Piggy Chops was spotted with Troy Carter in US.
Apparently, Troy happens to be the manager of the popular pop singer Lady Gaga. So does that mean that Troy will be working with Priyanka on her new album?
Yes! The reason is obviously out now, our very own Priyanka Chopra has made an international collaboration for her album.
PC has signed a collaboration deal with the Universal Music Group and is already working on her debut album these days. The album is likely to release later this year or early next year.
A source told a daily, “The opportunity has presented itself and it`s rather big, given the people backing it include the likes of Jimmy Iovine, who was a mentor with ‘American Idol,’ and will be working with her on this. Her international foray is being managed by Troy Carter, Lady Gaga`s manager. So, it`s doubly exciting for her.”
Meanwhile, Priyanka confirmed the news and said, “This is something I have always wanted to do. Everyone who knows me knows that I love singing and that`s one of the things closest to my heart. When UMG met me, it seemed like the right opportunity and I agreed. It`s not something that I had planned, it`s something that happened out of the blue, but I am very excited about it.”
When asked about how she will take out time for music considering she has five movies lined up, she quipped, “My movies are my priority and will always be. But my music is very important to me and this is something very few people get to do. And I want to do it well.”
About the genre of music in the album, she said, “It`ll be pop music for sure. It will be representative of me, my music, and the kind of person I am and the music that I like to listen to. I am writing the music myself. It will be very much from my heart.”
When asked about the kind of songs that will be in her album she said, “I am sure there will be balance in the songs. The music is still being worked upon and unless we finalize that, I can`t comment on exactly what it will be, or what sort of a look I`ll have. There`s still time for that.”
About Bollywood elements in the music, she added, “I don`t know it exactly yet since this is an initial stage. But, I am Indian and that`s where my roots are and that`s certainly what I am going to represent in my music too.”
Well, we wish PC loads of success and we already can’t wait to hear her album!
