After a year since her last appearance on the red couch, Lil Kim returned to MTV’s RapFix Live yesterday (March 7) to discuss a number of things, including her current uptempo single, “If You Love Me,” and upcoming album.
When asked by host Sway if the track,–on which she croons, “If you love me, you would say it in front of the world”– was intended for a certain someone, Kim immediately blushed and smiled uncontrollably.
“Well [it] might be [laughs], it’s definitely a true story,” she proclaimed. “Somebody had allegedly made a record to me.”
This comes after past reports of Ms. La Bella Mafia being romantically-linked to fellow Brooklyn rapper Maino, who previously released his “I Still Love You,” which allegedly touches on the couple’s former turbulent relationship.
“I guess the movie is continuing or whatever but, there is a lot in my life, in my personal life, as far as dealing in relationships, that people don’t know,” Kim explained. “If [people] found out, they’ll be like, ‘What? You were with who?’”
Aside from her new track and Maino, Kim also spoke on the status of her upcoming album and how she plans on begin introducing new music to her fans.
“What me and my team decided, and I can honestly say that my team is coming together, we’re going to just start dropping singles and let the fans get to know and feel the new Kim first,” she said. “I want them to feel the new me and be open-minded ’cause you can’t—I love Hard Core the album, love Notorious K.I.M., love La Bella Mafia, Naked Truth was what it was—can’t go backwards, we got to move forward. I want the fans to feel me by listening to the new singles that’s about to drop.”
Lil Kim’s new single, “If You Love Me,” is currently available on iTunes. —Ralph Bristout
