Eve is currently putting the finishing touches on her first album in five years and announced that it will hit stores on August 7. The album, Here I Am, will feature production and appearances from Timbaland, Scott Storch, Swizz Beatz, Cool & Dre, Pharrell and Sean Paul. The first single is the Swizz-produced “Tambourine.”
But despite the push to get the album finished for a summer release, Eve has been cast in the upcoming film, Ego, slated for a 2008 release. The film follows a cop, played by Vincent Laresca, who harasses a recently-paroled ex-con, played by Mekhi Phifer, who was convicted of killing the cop’s father. The cop continually harasses the ex-con until a tragic accident and then must live with the consequences of his vengeance.
