Swizz Beatz has already hit the mixtapes and clubs with his single, "It's Me, Bitches." The radio friendly version, "It's Me, Snitches," has gotten some spins and now, he's speaking about what he calls his first real album One Man Band Man.
"I was just drunk," he told Billboard of his first single. "I didn't want to go out to the club, so I just chilled in the studio. I knew I had a concept for the song, so I went in the booth and it just came out."
Although the album will feature production/collaborations with Kanye West, Just Blaze, Chris Martin (Of Coldplay) and other producers, Swizz noted that he wants to stand alone, as well.
"I didn't want my album to be like I was leaning on a whole bunch of other artists like crutches," he added. Swizz has some major plans for the future. He is planning a Crash-like video, with the actual director of the film.
Reports also indicate that there may be an up-coming remix to his first single, which may feature Jadakiss, Kanye West, R. Kelly and more. Aside from working on his album, Swizz has been busy helping others. J. Lo, Whitney Houston, 50 Cent, Usher, Chris Brown and others have also been working with Swizz on other projects. The album, One Man Band Man, is set to hit stores May 15 through Universal Motown.
