NEW MUSIC: Angie Stone – ‘2 Bad Habits’

Angie Stone is one of those artists with a Midas touch. Her buttery smooth honey-toned pipes, undeniable gritty soulfulness and epic songwriting talents have been called upon by everyone from Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder, D’Angelo and Lenny Kravitz to Moby, Erykah Badu, Ice Cube and Alicia Keys, to name a few. Rolling Stone Magazine once declared, “When soul music was in the lost and found, she came along to claim it.” It is this belief that has made Stone the go-to woman for three different record labels when they were creating a new sound and vision. In the 70s it was Angie Stone who helped to define the sound of the now legendary Sugar Hill Records, when she was one of the first recorded female rappers/singers in the ground-breaking trio Sequence. Their hit “Funk You Up” is a classic that gets folks moving to this day! Fast forward, Clive Davis tapped Stone’s iconic sound in the early 2000’s, when he launched J Records. She recorded her gold-selling Mahogany Soul for the label and Stone Love. The in demand Renaissance woman moves seamlessly from the studio and stage (she’s starred on Broadway) to television and silver screen without missing a beat.

A legend in this tough business, Angie Stone stands in a class by herself. November 2015 Stone will release her new CD Dream on Shanachie Entertainment in collaboration with Conjunction Entertainment Inc. Music Executive/Producer Walter W. Millsap III (BeyoncĂ©, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez) and TopNotch Music. The album’s first single, “2 Bad Habits,” is already a radio hit. Check out the video for it below

“As much success as Angie Stone has had, I still feel that she is under-recognized, given all the things that she has achieved, ” notes Shanachie General Manger Randall Grass. “When you put it all together, her story is amazing, from being part of the first female rap group to being one of the best, most soulful vocalists of the past couple decades to her work as a songwriter and actress. We are very excited to be working with her and look forward to truly tell ‘the Angie Stone story’ to its fullest!”

“When Darrell Thompson approached me with the idea of signing Angie Stone I was all in,” notes Music Executive and CEO of Conjunction Entertainment Inc. Walter W. Millsap III. “In my initial conversations with Angie we spoke very candidly about redefining her artistry and line extending her brand. I instantly knew, Angie’s history and experience in music paired with her phenomenal talent would make the process very serene. She’s a gem, a workaholic and a creative guru! Having worked with some of the biggest names in music today from BeyoncĂ©, Lady Gaga and Alicia Keys; it is evident that Angie Stone’s contribution to music has helped to pave the way for today’s artistry. The uniqueness Angie posses is second to none. Her ability to tap into ones soul musically, with or without their permission is divine.” TopNotch Music President Marv Mack adds, “It is more than a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with one of the most Soulful voices of this Generation. Angie is beyond talented and is still holding the Torch of ‘real soul music.’ When Walter and Angie played me the album in my office, I immediately said ‘this is a true blessing to hear soul music back in the form it needs to be in. Lets create a partnership!’ – See more at:
