Kelly Price’s ‘Tired’ Breaks Urban AC Top 30, New Album Coming Early 2011

Grammy nominated R&B/Gospel singer Kelly Price is gearing up to release her much-anticipated sixth album, Kelly, in February 2011 via Sang Girl/My Block Records. The set is led by the first single, “Tired,” recently impacted radio, reaching a Top 30 spot at Urban AC this week. “Tired” was written by Kelly Price, produced by Shep Crawford and inspired by a creative heart-to-heart Price shared with fellow musician and past collaborator, R. Kelly. The song sheds light on the social ills that were not only causing her distress at the time, but also seemed to be plaguing the world as a whole. The album will feature additional production by Warryn Campbell and Jazz Nixon. Kelly Price made her introduction to the world in 1998 with the double-platinum debut, ‘Soul of a Woman.’ Her first single, “Friend of Mine,” was a record-breaking single that made history as the first to garner the #1 spot on the singles chart without an accompanying video clip–a rare feat during the era when music videos were the driving force of popular culture. She returned to center stage three years later with the platinum-plus seller, Mirror, Mirror, led by her remake of the R&B classic, “As We Lay,” and followed up with the gold-selling holiday collection, One Family: A Christmas Album in 2001. Three years after releasing her fourth album, Priceless, she returned to her roots for This Is Whom I Am, a live gospel album recorded at her church home in Long Island.
