MNEK has worked on new material with Alex Da Kid.
“Was writing to the hot beats of Alex Da Kid yesterday! Lovely guy, really nice to meet you (nice to hear a London accent too),” he tweeted.
It is yet to be known whether the session was intended for another artist or a future MNEK’s upcoming debut album.
Alex Da Kid – born Alexander Grant – recently served as executive producer for Imagine Dragon’s second studio collection, “Smoke and Mirrors,” which debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart.
His extensive resume also includes works for Eminem (“Love the Way You Lie”), Skylar Grey (“C’mon Let Me Ride”), Rihanna (“Farewell”), Nicki Minaj (“Beautiful Sinner”) and Christina Aguilera (“Make the World Move”).
Meanwhile, MNEK is expected to release his full-length debut album later this year under Universal Music Group imprint Virgin EMI Records.
The still-untitled project will be preceded by the “Small Talk” EP, which will be available for download from March 27 via iTunes (UK).
On the songwriting and production front, MNEK has confirmed placements on the next releases by Madonna [Interscope], Jojo [Atlantic], Becky Hill [Parlophone], Tamera Foster [Syco] and Melissa Steel [Atlantic].
Some of his notable credits are Karen Harding’s “Say Something” [Capitol Records], Little Mix’s “Nothing Feels Like You” [Columbia Records] and Kylie Minogue’s “Feels So Good” [Parlophone Records].
