In addition to soundtracking the summer with her Fat Joe collaboration “All the Way Up” (which landed a remix from Jay Z), Remy Ma has been working on a joint album with her Terror Squad mate called Plata o Plomo. After releasing follow-ups like “Cookin'” featuring French Montana and Joe’s son, rapper Ry So Valid, and “Money Showers” co-starring Ty Dolla $ign, Remy assures that the project will turn up in the new year.
“The Plata o Plomo album is coming out at the top of the year in January,” Remy told Billboard on the red carpet for the VH1 Divas Holiday: Unsilent Night special at the King’s Theatre in Brooklyn on Friday. “I believe it’s supposed to go out on [January] 9th. We’re about to shoot the video for our newest single ‘Money Showers’ with Ty Dolla $ign.”
She adds, “When my brother [Fat Joe] and I get in the studio, something magical happens. I think the people are going to be really, really happy with this album. It’s a solid, real rap [project]. We didn’t take it to something that’s outside of either one of us. We meshed it all together very nicely.”
In between juggling motherhood to her son Jace and cooking up heat for the album, Remy has also been maintaining her ride-or-die relationship with her husband, rapper Papoose. When asked if the two would ever take their union to wax for a joint project, Remy offers, “Well, for now, he just allows me to get on his records. He released this song called “Black Love” this year, and I hopped on the remix. On the original, he was saying all of these nice things about how much he loves me and the type of woman he wants, and I just asked him if I could get on it. He told me to just do a remix so people could see how much I love my husband. As far as a collab project, we haven’t thought about that yet, but if that happens, I’m sure it will be a fun experience.”
Remy also got into the holiday spirit for the VH1 Divas special, where she performed Run-DMC’s 1988 classic “Christmas in Hollis.” When it comes to her Christmas playlist, Remy gushed, “I love Christmas carols. I love the ones that are sung over by famous people like Mary J. Blige. R. Kelly just put out a Christmas album and it was so good. I like to listen to Christmas songs where people that you know put their own style on it.”
