Multi-Grammy nominated artist and R&B royalty Tamia has released her seventh studio album Passion Like Fire via 21 Entertainment Group/Plus 1 Music Group/Entertainment One.
The 12 song LP reunites Tamia with hit makers Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys), Lil Ronnie (Ne-Yo, Ciara) and Shep Crawford (Whitney Houston, Boyz II Men), as well as working for the first time with Latin producer Andres Torres and Toronto-based Gray Hawken.
Tamia states: “I’m really excited to debut new music, connect with my fans, and show my continued evolution as an artist. I’m still passionate about music and the process and I hope listeners can feel that with ‘Passion Like Fire’.”
“I’m so excited to have reunited with Salaam Remi on the lead single ‘Leave It Smokin’, it feels like summertime, fun and a perfect way to introduce this album. I’m so grateful to the fans and radio stations for supporting it.”
The album, in turn, also marks another momentous occasion – the 20th anniversary of Tamia’s critically acclaimed, self-titled 1998 debut album.
The album initiated a string of hits that the six-time Grammy Award nominee has steadily spun off along the way, including “You Put a Move on My Heart” “Missing You” with Brandy, Gladys Knight and Chaka Khan, “Spend My Life with You” with Eric Benét and “Into You” with Fabolous.
