Ideal Records Song With Naughty, Next Members

After doing extensive touring with K-Ci & JoJo, Ginuwine, and Donell Jones throughout January and February, the men of Ideal decided to head back into a recording studio with a few friends.

Ideal was recently joined in a New York City studio by Naughty By Nature producer KayGee and singer/songwriter PZ from R&B outfit Next (who is signed to KayGee's own Divine Mills record label). The outcome of the sessions is a song called "Whatever." The track was written by PZ, produced by KayGee, and features a guest shot by Lil' Mo.

But don't expect a new album from Ideal anytime soon. "Whatever" will be released as the follow-up to the group's hit single "Creep Inn" and will be added to all future pressings of its 1999 self-titled debut album.

On April 13 and 14, Ideal will meet up with KayGee and RL to shoot a video for the track in Miami.
