50 Cent is recording a dance album.

The 'Baby By Me' rapper said he wants to leave hip-hop behind and has already started to record a dance album - with the working title 'Black Magic' - inspired by club music he's heard while touring Europe.

50 said: "I went to a nightclub after party. It was different music after a while. The music they were playing before they were playing the music I created was more up-tempo, more dance.

"I wanted to make a song like that, so I went into the studio. Because I'm travelling with my live band, I took the band with me and we sequenced it and recorded the actual record while we was out there."

50 also explained how he hopes the new record will show his full diversity as an artist to people.

He added: "I won't allow myself to be placed in a box where I can only do one style, or do one kind of music.

"They should expect the unexpected on this one. If they can understand how I enjoy different genres of music and different styles, for the people who have various tastes in music, they'll really like it."
