TAMIA’S NEW ALBUM & SINGLE ON THE WAY!
With the year drawing to an end, not many R&B singers are scheduled to release new albums. However, one of our favorite singers from the 90s/early 2000s is finally making her music comeback after 5 years.
According to Tamia’s publicist, Michelle Huff, the “Stranger in My House” singer will be releasing her newest single at the end of this month! What’s even more exciting is that her upcoming album is rumored to be titled Beautiful Surprise:
This will be Tamia’s 5th studio album following the release of Between Friends in 2006. At least we know that a real R&B artist will be making a comeback in 2012. Who else is happy to hear this besides me? Can’t wait, Tamia!
