Tamia Hits the Promo Trail

With the release of her new single “Beautiful Surprise,” Tamia has thrown her hat into the already crowded ring of female R&B artists looking to make a comeback in 2012.

The singer kicked off promotion for her single over the weekend, performing an almost two hour set at the Mandalay Bay Beach Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 37-year old Ontario native performed a stirring rendition of “Beautiful Stranger,” followed by her biggest hit to date, 2001’s “Stranger in My House.”



Tamia’s ‘Beautiful Surprise’ Video

Tamia’s video for her new single “Beautiful Surprise” finally made its long awaited debut on VH1 Soul. The network unveiled the singer’s hypnotic new visual at 6pm and continued to air it at the top of the hour for the next 6 hours.

Great promo for the six-time Grammy nominee, who like many R&B artists of the mid to late 90’s, is attempting to stage a comeback.

Tamia’s upcoming album of the same name is slated for a late summer release (August) and will reportedly feature production from Salaam Remi, J. Phoenix and Luke Layerd.

In the meantime, check out the “Beautiful Surprise” video below. It features the singer’s husband of 15 years, Grant Hill, as her love interest.

Tamia Finishes Up New Album

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.

To relive Tamia’s almost fifteen year career you can check out the 2009 release of her greatest hits compilation, as well as a few totally slept on singles from her “Between Friends” album.

Tamia Returns

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.
