“On to the Next One” is [artist id="1269"]Jay-Z[/artist]‘s current single, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready to move past his latest hit LP, The Blueprint 3. Hov said he’s thinking about two more videos from his opus.
“I wanna shoot ‘Venus vs. Mars,’ ” he told MTV News last weekend in Dallas. “I may shoot two — I shot ‘Run This Town’
[and ‘D.O.A. (Death of Auto Tune)’] , I been shooting two at the same time. I’ll probably shoot ‘Venus’ and maybe ‘A Star Is Born.’ But I definitely wanna shoot ‘Venus’ — I got an amazing concept in my mind.”
However, he said he doesn’t think he’ll shoot a clip for “Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour),” which he, Rihanna and members of U2 performed during MTV’s “Hope for Haiti Now” telethon.
“I don’t think there will be a video,” he explained. “The number is ridiculous as far as the [money generated by the Hope For Haiti Now] album . I’m excited about the whole effort we put into the telethon. I don’t think it’s entertainment, I think it’s a real thing. It’s helping real people through a real tough time, and we’ll just move on from there.”
While out in Dallas for the NBA All-Star Game, Jay also told MTV News that he wasn’t sure when a new album is coming, but he did have one song for it already.
“I don’t know,” he said. “I didn’t really start yet. I got a couple of scraps and I got a couple of ideas. I didn’t really go into the studio yet. I’ve been toying with ideas and direction and things like that.
“I got one crazy record,” he added. “To be honest with you, it’s crazy. I got one and we’ll build from there. Whether it comes out this year or next year, it depends on the music and how it’s coming out. I don’t really have any dates.”
