Johntá Austin’s day of reckoning is finally here!
After blessing us with several hot singles over the last 15 years, including the 2006 fan-favorite “Turn It Up,” the two-time Grammy Award winner finally releases his long-awaited debut solo album, Love, Sex & Religion. Executive produced by Austin for Austin Entertainment and Troy Taylor for Songbook Entertainment, the nine-track project explores the nuances of love, sex, and religion over a soundtrack of provocative, potent, and powerful sounds.
“This album is my love letter to the genre of R&B and all of the things that make me proud to have a place in contributing to that genre,” says Johntá Austin.
Accompanying the project is a steamy music video for the album’s debut single “Love Angel.” Directed by Derek Blanks, the visual vividly brings the song to life and finds Austin in a fantasy dream with a sexy bartender he’s been eyeing.
Before embarking on his solo recording artist career, Austin established himself as an impressive force in the music industry with a formidable catalog as a songwriter who has written tracks for the likes of Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah, Trey Songz, Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, Quavo, Usher and more. He earned a Grammy Award in the category of “Best R&B Song” twice for Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together” and Mary J. Blige’s “Be Without You,” as well as served as the Supervising Music Producer for Lee Daniels’ Star television series.
