Wiz Khalifa Enlists Pharrell & Jim Jonsin for Atlantic Debut

Wiz Khalifa is quite confident with his untitled Atlantic debut LP.

While his hit lead song, “Black and Yellow” has already sold over 1 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and peaked at No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart, the 2010 XXL Freshman expects his new material to fare better.

“Everything that we drop after ‘Black and Yellow’ is going to do as well or better,” Khalifa told “‘Black & Yellow’ was just supposed to be a set-up record. We haven’t even gotten into the good stuff. So with ‘Black and Yellow’ taking off and people getting behind it and supporting it that much, that’s just great, great for what’s going to happen after that. I mean, I just feel that good about it.”

Wiz said he has already gone into the studio with The Neptunes’s Pharrell Williams and Jim Jonsin. Saying that the disc is basically finished, he plans on dropping the album sometime in March on Rostrum Records/Atlantic. —Elan Mancini
