The diamond princess, Trina, released her sixth studio album titled “The One.”
The Love and Hip Hop rapper has been making boss moves since her “You don’t know nann” days, and it’s very clear that time has enhanced her sound as a artist.
Her new project “The One” has a lot of features including Dave East, Plies, Boosie, DJ Khaled, LightskinKeish, 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne and more.
The miami native finally delivered her Nicki Minaj assisted single “BAPS,” and she stopped by HOT 97 to chat with Nessa Diab about her latest track and forthcoming record.
“BAPS means Bad Ass Pretty [Sagittarius],” Trina said. “It was really fun making the record with her. I asked her to get on my album when she was working on her album, the Queen album, down in Miami. That’s kind of how the whole collaboration came out. She sent me this record and then voila.”
Trina talked about why she decided to name the album “The One.”
“I feel like, this is my sixth album,” she said. “I have have done so much and [much has] transpired, just like evolved. From five different albums and so much stuff that I’ve been through and I’ve put into all those albums, I get to the sixth album and this is like, I’ve given the last six years of my life to this project. That’s a really long time, especially when I had hopes that it would come out three years ago. I kept recording. I kept adding new stuff, new songs, and it just kept growing and growing. Now, it’s about to be summer. I’m dropping my album this year. I don’t care what happens.”
