Los Angeles, California – July 06, 2010 – Miss R&B Rhona Bennett–The “First Lady of Darkchild” and longstanding member of the super group En Vogue–is kicking off the release of her forthcoming sophomore album, “The Anticipation Of R&B,” today by issuing two singles to radio stations and DJ’s worldwide.
The soul and hip-hop tinged “Range,” which was written by Rhona, oozes of strength and savvy with a hook that is primed to become a new pop culture catchphrase. It’s a collaboration with Grammy-winning production team J.U.S.T.I.C.E League, who have garnered success with Mary J. Blige, Rick Ross, Drake, Lil’ Wayne, Young Jeezy and a score of other top recording artists. “Letting You Go” (a co-write with Nick Turpin) is a powerful pop/soul ballad detailing the emotion of a woman conflicted and her yearning to ‘let go’ of the past and her pain.
The album as a whole features a varied selection of cuts from ballads to up-tempo dance tracks that both radio and clubs will embrace. With feature performances by Terry Ellis and Cindy Herron-Braggs of En Vogue and Grammy Award-winning diva Brandy, “The Anticipation of R&B,” is sure to appeal to a diverse group of music fans that want to both “feel” the music and hear the truth of insightful lyrics.
Rhona Bennett is a talent whose career has graced the studio, the stage and the screen from her debut solo effort on Rodney Jerkins’ Darkchild/Sony imprint, to her role as “Nicole” from on the Jamie Foxx Show, to her beginnings as a Mouseketeer with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. Now, with this musical endeavor, she is creating a new role…that of Miss R&B, a diva injecting the old school elements of great melodies and choruses into a beat-fueled production and stylized persona that is all about today. It’s a formula that leaves no doubt that Rhona’s return to recording truly is “The Anticipation of R&B.”
