Singer / Actor Eric West revealed to UK’s Music Week that he would love to work with the likes of Kanye West, Fergie, Janet Jackson, Dilated Peoples, Usher, Madonna, BT and Alejandro Sanz.
Speaking exclusively with Music Week yesterday, the model turned singer explained ‘My album “Half Life” was pretty much finished, a few things shifted the release date, two movies, modeling, during my breaks I began writing new songs that I seriously love. I feel that the more time we put into the album, the better it will be.”
Rumors are spreading about Eric appearing in the upcoming untitled Lindsay Lohan and Nick Cannon flick. Eric will appear in Lords Of Dogtown in summer 05.’Acting is something I never planned on doing anytime soon, my brother thought it would be a good idea’ said West, ‘It was a good move, the phone has been ringing a lot lately,’ added West.
Eric also stated he would love to work with Kanye West, Fergie, Janet Jackson, Dilated Peoples, Usher, Madonna, BT and Alejandro Sanz, Eric said: ‘I really admire Kanye’s work, I listen to his album when I’m working out. Fergie has been a friend of mine for nearly 8 years, I’m going to give her a call and see if she’ll be up to appearing on a remix to my first single ‘Can’t Be Friends’. Janet Jackson is an icon, I’ve been honored to meet her a few times, working with her would be amazing, though I don’t think Jermanie Dupri will like me being around his girl. I recently met Madonna, and told her I’d like to work with her, but who wouldn’t want to work with Janet or Madonna? They are the greatest female artist of my time’.
The full interview will appear in Music Week. His debut album “Half Life” is due early 2005.
