Lil Wayne Recording Album of Love Songs

In recent years, Lil Wayne has shown an ability to make records for the radio, clubs, streets and the ladies, among other topics. Now, fans may be getting a full album focused on that love, he explained recently.

“I was also recording an album at the same time called Devol,” Weezy told MTV’s Hip Hop POV, which aired Wednesday night (April 12). “It’s spelled D-E-V-O-L because that’s ‘loved’ spelled backwards. It’s my version of love songs. And what I mean by my version of love songs is meaning they’re not saying ‘I love you.’ It’s all material that I did when I was locked up.”

He didn’t give any more details on when the album would be coming out or what songs he’s covering, but with hits like “How To Love” already under his belt, he’s proven that he knows how to approach a song for the females.

Wayne is still riding the wave of his latest album, Tha Carter IV, which came out last August, as his current single “Mirrors,” featuring Bruno Mars, peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100. He is also featured on DJ Khaled’s latest single, “Take It To The Head,” as well as “HYFR,” from Drake’s Take Care, which just got the visual treatment earlier this month. There has also been talk of Tunechi releasing I Am Not A Human Being 2, though neither that nor Devol has a release date. —Adam Fleischer (@AdamXXL)
