Elephant Man's Bad Boy Entertainment debut, Let's Get Physical, hit stores this Tuesday (April 8). In this SOHH exclusive, the dancehall star talks about his new project, album push backs and his hot collabo with Chris Brown.
Elephant Man is famous for his high energy stage shows so it's only natural that he would release an album intended to get people dancing.
"When you hear the album you can't stop moving," he said. "The album is just full of energy. So I said, Let's Get Physical, of course. That's the name that we'll use." [Watch Below]
Ele's Bad Boy debut was originally slated to hit stores last August but was pushed back due to clearance issues.
"We had to get the clearance from Chris Brown and Rihanna and all of these people," he explained. "You don't want to put out the album and when you put it out you gonna have a problem. You want to make sure everything is good."
The collabo with Chris Brown is called "Feel The Steam" and Ele is predicting that it will be a summer smash. He likens it to Nelly's "Hot In Here" and the Fabolous/Ne-Yo hit "Make Me Better."
In the song, Chris sings, "Can you feel the steam/ make you want to scream/ shawty wanna leave with me/ I know that's what you need/ let me make your body sweat/ mama come and make your body wet."
"Chris Brown is one of the most beloved by little teenagers," says Elephant Man. "The song is gonna do good in the clubs."
In addition to appearances by Chris Brown and Rihanna, Let's Get Physical also features Diddy, Wyclef, Yung Joc, Mario Winans and Kat De Luna.
