Atlanta-based rapper Da Brat is set to release her fourth album, "Limelite, Luv & Niteclubz," June 24 on So So Def/Arista. The artist is one of a select few originally signed to Jermaine Dupri's So So Def label who moved with the imprint to Arista in January, when Dupri signed a new label and production deal.

The first single, "In Love Wit Chu" featuring Cherish, is No. 66 this week on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart in its third week on the tally. Beats creator L.T. Hutton produced that song and many others on the album, teaming up with Dupri on a number of cuts. Other guest performances on "Limelite" include Atlanta rapper Cee-Lo and Mariah Carey, with whom Da Brat co-starred in the latter's feature film "Glitter."

"I'm shocking a lot of people this go [a]round and this album is on fire," Da Brat said in a statement. The album will be Da Brat's first since 2000's "Unrestricted," which debuted at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 905,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
