Lewis Hamilton in talks with Jay Z for his debut entry into music

London – Lewis Hamilton is in talks with Jay Z about releasing his own music.

\n

\n

The 30-year-old Formula One World Champion – who recently split from pop star Nicole Scherzinger – has held discussions with the rap mogul’s Roc Nation firm about releasing the results of his studio sessions.

\n

An insider explained: “Lewis has been talking to a few music industry figures about his music, including Jay Z’s Roc Nation team.

\n

“It’s early days but it looks more and more likely that he will release some of the songs.”

\n

Although Lewis spends the majority of his time on the Formula One track, he’s a big music enthusiast and dedicates much of his spare time to recording songs.

\n

The source told The Sun newspaper: “Lewis spends a lot of his time in the studio, works with big name collaborators and takes it all very seriously.

\n

“Formula One is still his number one priority but don’t be too surprised if Lewis tries a pop career, too.”

\n

Speaking last year, Lewis revealed the extent of his dedication to music, saying: “I’ve probably made about 25 to 30 songs.

\n

“I’ve heard a lot of bad songs in the charts recently and I have stuff that we and other people say is better.”
