Everything is on the upswing for Bruno. (Almost everything. He was officially charged on Saturday with cocaine possession after being arrested in Los Angeles). With his debut album, Doowops & Hooligans, dropping today (Oct. 5), the singer chats with VIBE on his way to a radio interview in Long Island about his rise to the top, the difficulty pinning down his sound, the song he wish he produced and the one he’s got for Nicki Minaj.
What do you think of Nicki Minaj?
Shhh… That’d be incredible. Drake, of course. I think I got a song for Nicki. I just gotta find a way to get to her.
You have a song written already?
I’ve been working on something.
You want to pitch to her?[Laughs] Yeah. Can VIBE hook that up? Can you get me on the phone with her?
Yeah, we can try.[Laughs] Alright. Try to make that happen.
