R&B up-and-comer Bobby Valentino will return on Sept. 19 with his sophomore album for Ludacris’ Disturbing Tha Peace label, “Special Occasion.” The 14-track set has been preceded by the track “Wreck,” produced by Sean Garrett. The first official single, “Turn the Page,” was produced by Rodney Jerkins.
Valentino co-wrote the majority of “Special Occasion.” Among the other writing and production contributors to the album are Tim & Bob, Dre & Vidal and Bryan Michael Cox.
The new album is the follow-up to Valentino’s 2005 self-titled debut, which bowed at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 673,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
