In a recent teaser from his upcoming interview with CBS Mornings’ Gayle King, JAY-Z has expressed his desire to create more music, but with a specific condition – it must carry meaning and substance.
During the interview, Hov was asked about the possibility of returning to the recording studio to produce a fresh album. His response shed light on his artistic aspirations and the intention behind any future music projects.
He conveyed that any new material he works on must have a profound impact on people’s lives. He’s determined to create music that transcends the realm of disposable “tunes.”
“I already used the word ‘retirement’; I can’t do that ever again. I’ll say I wanna make music, but it has to be something important”
JAY-Z firmly emphasized that he’s not interested in churning out a collection of superficial songs. For him, the process of making music needs to be rooted in importance. “I don’t wanna just make a bunch of tunes. That’s not gonna serve me. It won’t feed me, first of all. I have to be saying something important. It has to mean something, you know? It has to mean something to a larger society.”
He continued, using his album “4:44” as an example. He revealed that while it was a personal narrative, the degree of vulnerability in the album allowed many individuals to relate and explore their own personal spaces.
