According to an interview with MTV, rapper Lil Wayne revealed that his next album will consist of love songs that he wrote during his eight-month stint at New York City’s Rikers Island jail back in 2010. The album will be called Devol, which is “loved” spelt backwards but is pronounced “devil.”
In the interview Wayne explains that the album will contain his version of love songs:
“What I mean by my version of love songs is meaning they’re not saying, ‘I love you'”
This won’t be the first time Lil Wayne will release his vision of a love song as his 2008 smash single Lollipop spent five non-consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart. If that’s any indication of things to come, then we’re in for quite a treat!
No release date has been planned for Devol yet but we’ll keep you posted when we hear more.
