R&B singer Crystal Tamar releases her self-titled solo debut on Friday, August 16.
The 6-song set mastered by Sing Mastering includes the breakout single “Nowhere” and it's follow up, the Bangladesh-produced “U Gon Love Me.”
The grown and sexy EP with Crystal Tamar’s rich R&B vocals over booming 808s culls contributions from some of the music business’ most talented songwriters and producers. The sweet, soulful mid tempo ballad “Nowhere” and popping, sassy club banger “Gasoline” are written by Kalenna Harper, who has penned records for Aretha Franklin, Fantasia and Lady Gaga, and produced by Cam Wallace, whose credits include works with Beyonce, Rihanna and Lil Wayne. “U Gon Love Me,” the EP’s hypnotic anthem and second single was helmed by super producer Bangladesh, the mastermind behind Lil Wayne’s “A Mili,” Beyonce’s “Diva” and Rihanna’s “Cockiness (Love It),” and songwriter Racquelle Dolore. Dolore also wrote the sensual grind “Gimme Dat” and remorseful, funky track “Three Minutes.” The endearing, classic R&B tribute “Serenade” was written by Michael A. Gordon, Jon A. Gordon, Corei A. Gordon and Alanna Leonard and produced by Christopher Duncanson and Michael A. Gordon.
