Angie Stone Releasing New Album Next Month
The album features the hit single "Do What U Gotta Do" which is already at #17 on the Urban AC charts and rising.
"I wrote this album from a real place," says Stone. "It's not about money, it's about being rich in everything you do, in your spirit, your purpose and your giving to others. And because I was able to really write for, and in, my own voice this time, I could really sing these new songs with authenticity, something I haven't been able to do in a long time."
"I spent a lot of time over the past few years working with other people, writing with them, working with producers," Stone explains. "And then one day I realized that while I was doing everything I could to help them succeed and watching them grow, I was losing pieces of myself in the process. I shaved a lot of my originality off when merging with so many other people. Fans weren't getting Angie Stone. They were getting Angie and so-and-so. I knew I had to get back to my own music and skills. It's time for Angie to do Angie."
