Bobby Brown's 'Masterpiece' Gets Release Date
Bobby Brown will be releasing his first solo album in 14 years on June 5, and he's calling it "The Masterpiece." The R&B singer of New Edition fame will be releasing the album's lead single "Don't Let Me Die" this spring.
News of the album shouldn't come as a surprise to Brown fans as the work follows new tracks "Damaged" and "Get Out The Way," which were released early last year.
Brown will be making a slew of television appearances in second half of May on programs ranging from "Ellen," to "The Tonight Show," "Today" and "The Wendy Williams Show."
In regards to the solo project, Brown stated in a press release, "I simply wanted to create a body of work that will take listeners on a musical journey; the style of music that will allow people to get in touch with their highs and lows and their joys and pain of living through song. At the same time, I am hoping to bridge the gap between good old R&B and R&B of today."
Brown is also making headlines with the news that his marriage to his fiancée Alicia Etheridge finally has a date. The couple has been engaged for two years and welcomed a baby boy Cassius in 2009. According to TMZ, the pair will be tying the knot in Honolulu while Brown is on tour with New Edition.
