JC Chasez is said to be making his own album. He will have at least one song on the soundtrack for the upcoming movie, Drumline.
Dallas Austin, who’s producing the film and the soundtrack, has recorded four songs with JC, including ‘Blowin’ Me Up’, a strong contender to be the soundtrack’s first single.
“We’ve been doing some great, great material” Dallas said Wednesday from his Atlanta home. “At first he wasn’t going to do a record, but I think now he’s kind of interested, so we’ll probably just keep recording. We were just writing songs for the movie and we caught a niche and it was like, ‘Oh sh–, this is cool for you, let’s keep going.'”
So far JC and Austin have recorded fun, fast-paced songs and mid-tempo ballads.
“It’s back to George Michael and Prince and that ’80s era, where even though you had up-tempos, they still had songs to them, they had a lot of attitude” Dallas Austin explained. “It was a trip because we didn’t realize how far away music had gotten from doing real songs until we started working on this stuff.”
The soundtrack, due out on the 10th of December, according to Jive Records, will also include Alicia Keys, Monica, Petey Pablo and Jive newcomer Nivea, who was featured on Mystikal’s ‘Danger (Been So Long)’.
Drumline will be out in theatres tentatively on the 20th of January next year.
