Eve's Album Delayed Until 2008
During a recent interview with XXL, Eve was quoted as saying, Im definitely rolling the dice with this album, because its different. Dre hated it. He was like, We need to throw some mud on it. He played me distinctive Dre joints, and I turned them down, because I was like, Im not 50. Im not Game. Thats his shit, and I love it, but its not something that I wanted to do."
This summer also found the rapper in the courtroom, facing DUI charges when she swerved off the road and struck a median in her gold Maserati on April 26. Having put her legal woes aside, Eve was enjoying moderate success with her lead single "Tambourine," which peaked at number 17 on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Spokespeople from Eve's camp have given no reason for the additional delay of the album.
