“Stuck with Me” arrives roughly three months after the singer released “Sandwich and a Soda” and while not as slamming, the track is still worth a listen and as always, Tamia’s vocals are the true star.

After an almost five year hiatus R n’ B chanteuse Tamia says she is once again ready to release new music. The 35 year old singer, probably best known for her hits “Stranger In My House” and “So Into You,” recently tweeted about working with Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins and says they have finally put the finishing touches on her album.
Tamia’s official website says a new single should be expected by early spring and just like in years past, a small club tour will soon follow. The as yet untitled project will be the singer’s fifth solo album, with her last, “Between Friends,” having been released in 2006 on an independent South African label.
After nearly a decade the singer left Elektra Records and for a short while found herself without a label. It wasn’t until she was touring overseas that Tamia says she was finally able to secure a contract with Gallo Records.
Since we first heard her voice on the sultry “Slow Jams,” a duet with the revered Babyface, on Quincy Jones’ 1996 release Q’s ‘Jook Joint,’ it was clear that the then nineteen year old Ontario, Canada native Tamia was a force to be reckoned with. Fast-forward ten years, three albums, and multiple Grammy nominations, Tamia is still making soulful music with her beautiful melodies. Her passionate delivery resonates with fans young and old. Tamia’s style is timeless, and continues to evolve. Needless to say, she is not going anywhere anytime soon. Tamia’s latest release, Between Friends, hits stores November 14th.
The 19th Annual “Divas Simply Singing” concert went down last night in Beverly Hills, California. Founded in 1990 by actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, the charity fundraising concert for HIV and AIDS awareness donates 100% of it’s proceeds to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and the Women Alive Coalition. This year’s event had performances by Shery herself, as well as singers Faith Evans, Yolanda Adams, Tamia, and Sheryl’s Dreamgirls co-star, Loretta Devine.
