Rae Sremmurd just released their highly anticipated sophomore album Sremmlife 2 — but don’t expect the Atlanta duo to rest on their laurels (or numerous hit turn-up anthems) just yet.
In a new Complex profile of the pair, they address speculation about potential solo projects. While Slim Jxmmi insists he’ll never release anything on his own (“because I don’t want to satisfy the world like that”), his younger brother Swae Lee, 21, used the piece to announce “a retarded project called Swaecation.” Though there’s no timeline offered for the new material, Lee says, “I have eight songs right now that I feel like are candidates for the project, but I gotta make sure they’re all up to par.”
Sremm’s hit-making sensibilities don’t stop with their own records, though. After discussing the Swae-credited Beyonce track “Formation” (“Don’t nobody know it, so I’ma say it here first: We both wrote on that record and it go crazy. I got my credits too,” says Jxmmi), Lee added that he’s recently written for another of pop’s biggest divas: Katy Perry. “I wrote this track and she laid it and it’s pretty dope,” he told Complex. “It sounded pretty dope. She got a lot of style.”
Individual efforts aside, the pair say they’re still wed to the Sremm…life. “When we say solo projects, we say chances for the fans to get to see us individually,” says Lee in the profile. “But we’re still Sremmed out. We might put them on the same disc — who knows? We definitely got different projects that we’re working on and tweaking.”
