Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter Tamia is preparing to make a comeback this fall with the release of her upcoming album entitled ‘Beautiful Surprise’, confirmed by her publicist on Twitter.. This will serve as a follow-up to her 2006 project ‘Between Friends’.
This will be Tamia’s fifth studio album, and it will stay true to the veteran R&B powerhouse’s known sound and style. Though details for the project are still limited, she has insisted that fans can expect the usual love ballads. Currently confirmed writers and producers for the album include Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, The Runners, Chuck Harmony, Claude Kelly, and Carvin Haggins & Ivan Barias.
Most recently, songwriter Claude Kelly talked with TheBoomBox.com regarding his contribution to the record. “Tamia of course is a veteran with a great voice,” he says. “She’s doing R&B but we are taking it up a notch. I wrote some really classic R&B songs for her that I’m really proud of.”
Tamia, 35, was mostly known for her singles “Stranger in My House,” “Officially Missing You” and her collaborative effort “Into You” with rapper Fabolous. The singer is currently married to NBA basketball star Grant Hill..
