Last week while in NYC, Afrojack sat down with The Source to speak on a few things including, his debut album, working with Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa and more.
What inspired you to call your debut album “Forget The World”?
Afrojack: The title of the album is “Forget The World” because I wanted to show people the things you can reach if you do forget the world and if you just follow your heart. That’s what I did, that’s what we all did, that’s why we’re all here!
How long have been working on the album?
Afrojack: I’ve been working on it for two years, but the songs that made the final album have all been from the last six months.
Tell us about your collaboration with Snoop Dogg called “Dynamite.”
Afrojack: We performed together during the MTV European Music Awards … after that it was fun, so we headed to the studio, sat down, I played him a couple of tracks including the instrumental of “Dynamite,” and he went Snoop on me … and he went, sat down in the king chair, wrote some stuff down, went in the vocal booth and I recorded a song with him. It was insane.
What was it like working with Snoop Dogg?
Afrojack: It was insane. Really cool.
