Angie Stone single is out now

ANGIE STONE

BARES HER NEO-SOUL

IN

NEW SINGLE,

“Do What U Gotta Do”

 

ALBUM DUE IN SEPTEMBER

 

Atlanta, GA (May 29, 2012) — In a triumphant return to her trademark neo-soul, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Angie Stone releases a new single this week, “Do What U Gotta Do,” kicking it off with a party in Los Angeles sponsored by legendary R&B radio station KJLH.  The first track off of Stone’s upcoming album, Rich Girl, (due September 25th on SRR Records), “Do What U Gotta Do” is seductive mix of groove, guitars and an irresistible sing-along chorus.

 

Written specifically for Angie by Y’anna Crawley (winner of BET talent competition Sunday Best), the empowering “Do What U Gotta Do” sets the tone for the entire Rich Girl album.  “It jump-started my brain,” says Stone, “I was excited and gave me a whole new outlook on what I was doing. It started the record both literally and inspirationally.”  The strong lyrics resonated deeply with Stone, who explains, “It was telling me to keep my head up, saying ‘you can make it and do what you gotta do,’ giving me the beginning of the new album and the resolve to make it into something beyond anything I had ever done before.”

 

Angie Stone has been nominated for three Grammy Awards, two Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards, and has released four Top 10 R&B albums (with her The Art of Love & War going all the way to number one).  An acclaimed songwriter, her work has been recorded by Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu, Raphael Saadiq, Musiq (Soulchild) and many more.

The Original 7ven takes over Centric TV!

Saturday, December 10th  through Sunday, December 11th (beginning at 10am ET and PT / 9am CT)

 

Watch the Original 7ven takeover the Centric network this weekend, with exclusive programming that includes the television premiere of their documentary, Being: The Original 7ven, a command performance of their explosive opening number at last month’s Soul Train Awards, hosting the network’s Hot 10 show, and a vintage clip of The Time on Soul Train.

 

The Original 7ven, the band formerly known as The Time, recently released a new album, Condensate.  The first single, “#Trendin,” continues to move up the charts in the adult Urban AC radio format  and was called a “…funk-fueled jam that’s right on time…” by USA Today. People magazine called it “funky” and raved that “the players are still cool.” The Huffington Post gave the album five stars, noting “Condensate marks a mighty return to the fore for a beloved ensemble that has rightfully earned its own status as music royalty” and the Philadelphia Daily News awards it an “A,” adding “…the set achieves nirvana…”

 

A major force in the Minneapolis sound phenomenon, each of the 7 musicians - Morris Day, Jesse Johnson, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Jellybean Johnson, Monte Moir and Jerome Benton – went on to successful individual careers with each scoring #1 chart toppers before coming back together for the first time in 21 years to record Condensate.
