Kenny G has confirmed he’s been hitting the studio with Kanye West.
Kenny, real name Kenneth Bruce Gorelick, performed a private concert for West’s wife Kim Kardashian on Valentine’s Day this year; since then, the pair have been working on a collaboration.
The saxophonist told the Dallas Observer, “[West] reached out to me and wanted me to come and do [the Valentine’s Day performance].”
“I didn’t know him real well, but I was obviously flattered. He could not have been more welcoming. Since then we’ve actually been in the studio working on some music together.
“I can’t really say much else because he doesn’t really want anyone to talk about music before he releases it.
“Just suffice to say that we’re collaborating on some things, and nobody knows what’s going to happen.”
Kenny, who has sold over 75 million records around the world over nearly four decades, adds of his level of fame in the interview, “I may not be a person like Taylor Swift or Beyoncé or Kanye who’s getting tons and tons of views and all the exposure that these guys get today but that doesn’t mean that there’s not a huge amount of people that do listen to my music. They’re out there.”
