Smokey Robinson Studying Spanish For New Record

Smokey Robinson started his music career with a song called "Got a Job," and rest assured the Motown legend even at 72, is working as hard as many of his younger proteges.

Robinson tells Billboard.com that he has two albums in the works -- a Christmas collection and a sets of songs he plans to record in Spanish. He'll also be inducting his group, the Miracles, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 12 in Cleveland, and he's thumping the drum for Human Nature, the Australian vocal quartet that performs a show of Motown songs in Las Vegas and has just released "The Motown Record" as well as a PBS special and DVD. The troupe kicks off a U.S. tour March 24 in Detroit.

"They're the bomb group, they really are," Robinson says of Human Nature, which he met when he was approached to be a guest on one of their previous albums. "They came into the studio one night and sang for me a capella and just blew me away. They had not had the exposure...so I got them in Atlantic city for two weeks and then into Las Vegas at the Imperial Hotel, and they were so awesome and so incredible that they got a two-year extension and they named the club there after them."
