Rapper Chingy will release his sophomore album, "Powerballin'," Nov. 16 via Capitol. First single "Balla Baby" will arrive next month at U.S. radio outlets. A video for the cut will be shot next week in Los Angeles by director Jeremy Rall (Ludacris, Field Mob).

"Powerballin'" is the follow-up to Chingy's 2002 debut "Jackpot," which debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 2.8 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It spawned the smash singles "Right Thurr," "One Call Away" and "Holidae In." The latter cut is up for best hip-hop video next weekend at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Of late, Chingy has been heard guesting on Houston's single "I Like That," which is No. 23 this week on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.

According to his official Web site, Chingy will play four dates in Japan beginning tonight (Aug. 20) in Osaka. Also on his schedule is a Sept. 2 taping for MTV's "Hard Rock Live" in Orlando, Fla.
