Following the release of the “Forever Remix II,” Brooke Valentine continues to reshape her career by dropping “Rub It In.” The Tyrese-assisted ballad sees the R&B songstress and new mom crooning about a lover who’s not taking care of home.
“Rub It In” will appear on Brooke’s forthcoming album via Subliminal Entertainment/Universal.
“A lot of fans have been asking where I have been,” Brooke says, referring to her extended hiatus from the music business. “You know, I’ve been singing since I was 12 years-old; so by the time songs like ‘Girlfight’ and the Chain Letter album hit, I’d been doing this for quite a while. In this world, you just can’t have all career and no balance. I gave birth to my son London, who I love and adore. He requires a bit more attention than what the average parent has to give to a child. I’d been fighting to be released from the deal with Virgin Records. I was no longer in love with the industry and with the politics that go with it. I needed a break. I needed to live life. But I want my fans to know, though, that I never fell out of love with music or creating it. I was always appreciative of their support and what they have meant to my career.”
