kanye west + maria mena = fail. -but a story I will tell my grandchildren ;)

ok, so i was talking to my friend Chirag from the norwegian rap-duo karpe Diem last week and he reminded me of the fact that  waaaay back, Kanye West  chose my song "you´re the only one" out of a bunch of songs, as the one he thought would become the big summer hit of 2004... 

i had completely forgotten about it.... maybe cuz i had no idea about who he was at the time  though i have since become a huuuuuge fan of his music..

i was looking for his quote online but all i could find was this (i think i have the actual article in the attic .. i´ll try to find it for u an other day : ) ;  

In the May edition of Entertainment Weekly, key producer Kanye West predicted that the big US summer hit of 2004 would be Maria Menas Youre the only one. Said the acclaimed producer: I like her style. Maria is my favourite. Time Magazine singled out Mena in its June issue declaring her one of twelve acts that were likely to become the summers hitmakers 

hahahahaha!! i remember he even said that "he liked the way i rapped" LOL!!!

 anyway.. he was wrong, although i did get a lot of American fans so i am more than happy about the outcome;)

 

i actually have a lot more funny stories like this but have a tendency to forget them... oh whatever:=)

That is so cool, Kayne West just released a single with Katie Perry E.T, maybe you are next to do a collaboration with mr. West :-) I really like the version of Beyonce's "Ego" that he is on, if you have not heard it, try listening to it. By the way he is also great on Run this town with Rihanna and Jay-Z.

Sleep tight, Camilla
