Eve Rocking With Dre

New album falls on the heels of clothing line, sitcom

October 8, 2003 12:00 AM ET

This summer, Eve went from wrapping Barbershop 2 to the set of her new sitcom, Eve, on to the launch of her clothing line, Fetish, and then to the studio with Dr. Dre to start work on her fourth album. "Everything happened at once," she says. "But I'm having the best time."

The new set will be the follow-up to 2002's Eve-olution and the third album on which she's worked with Dre, who's executive producing. "He brings the best out of me," Eve says. "I want to go in and experiment and really have fun."

Experimenting could lead the two in a new direction. "It will still be hip-hop but probably more rock," Eve says. "Kind of fusing both of them together and just doing a different kind of music."

Eventually, Eve says, she wants to get a live band, "come up with songs and sit around and come up with the right melodies and chords. I would love to do that."

Eve will take a break from recording this month to shoot new episodes of her sitcom. Information on how to obtain free tickets for a taping can be found at evefansonly.com.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
