Franklin has worked with Outkast’s Andre 3000 on the project as well as producers Babyface and Daryl Simmons. Andre 3000 oversees production on four tracks, replacing Don Was, who had to leave the project due to other commitments.
“I’m pretty sure it’s going to be fun working with Andre 3000, just watching his videos and things,” said Franklin ahead of the pair beginning work together. “It should be fun. And, of course, they all come with great music, so I expect that.”
