Wiz Khalifa revealed last year that he was working on a song with Adele and now he’s giving a few additional hints of what fans can expect when the song finally drops.

“It’s a cross between [the sounds of] right now and the ’60s and ’70s,” Khalifa told Fuse News. “It’s really hippie.”

Khalifa says that the 21 singer was a fan of his, but it was really his wife, Amber Rose, who helped get Adele into the studio. “You never really know who enjoys your music and what you do,” the new dad explained. “She’s a huge fan of Amber as well. I saw [Adele] at the GRAMMYs and she’s like, ‘Wiz, move out of the way. I need to take a picture with Amber.’ You just never know who you touch with what you do.”

As for when the song will see the light of day, Khalifa admits he’s not really sure. “I just hope that we can put it in the album or maybe we can make something else, too,” he said.

The “Black and Yellow” rapper, who revealed that he’ll be playing this year’s Bonnaroo, said he wants to put his upcoming album, Blacc Hollywood, out before the end of the summer. The album itself will be a mix of punk rock and early hip-hop with influences ranging from Guns N’ Roses to Nirvana to Wu-Tang Clan.

Khalifa’s new single, “We Dem Boyz” is out now.
