Pierre Lewis Moving in New R&B Direction, Taps US Hip/Hop Production Team 'Trap Team' For Debut Album

If you haven't checked out Pierre Lewis' official website in a while, you're in for a real treat. The site has been given a much-needed make over and it's now FULL of goodies. As promised, it looks like 2011 is going to be Lewis' year to shine. According to his blog, Lewis has lined up the US production team Trap Team (signed to T-Pain's Dream Star/Nappy Boy Entertainment) to work on a new R&B-tinged pop sound for Lewis' forthcoming album. The album, tentatively due out late summer will be released on Lewis' own label, Colonel Music which is distributed by Universal. Trap Team has worked with the likes of Young Cash, Rick Ross, Slim Thug and of course...T-Pain himself. I gotta admit - I think this shift in direction could really work for Lewis. Describing his planned new sound, Lewis really seems to have a firm grasp on just WHO HE IS as an artist.
"I think most un-manufactured artists go through a phase of transition, I call it the butterfly effect. You start the creative process in auto pilot, being lead along by your ideas of what people want...then a light comes on and you find yourself as an artist, having a vision for both your music and personal style. I’ve stripped away the shine, it's hard cos I really got tarnished with the pop brush... so of course I think the sexier new edge stuff from me is going to be a shock." {SOURCE}
Sexier? Yes please! Last week, in one of his 'Tune in Tuesday' segments, Lewis expanded on this new style. One new song that Lewis is particularly excited about is called "Stay," and Lewis describes it as "taking of where 'Broken' left off, but kind of going with a new R&B direction." Jesse McCartney anyone? I can really see Lewis going in that whole direction. "Broken," as amazing as it was, was pure, unadulterated POP music. I agree that to survive in this tough musical climate, Lewis needs a little bit more edge. From the sounds of it, Trap Team could give Lewis the edge he needs to be taken seriously as the star he really is.

Also keeping Lewis busy? Photo shoots! Check out the absolutely stunning new photos in this post, taken by Morgan Klang from ScandiPhoto. I am loving this whole urban street graffiti look. I think it really suits Lewis, ESPECIALLY now that we know where his music is headed. Can't wait to hear what's next for this guy! Stay tuned here for all the latest on Pierre Lewis!
