Ginuwine’s R&B comeback is receiving a significant assist from former collaborator Timbaland and Dirty South rap titan Bun B, reports Allhiphop.com.
All three are collaborating on the singer’s forthcoming CD “The New Beginning,” which will be released via Notifi Records, with distribution through Asylum. The effort will be Ginuwine’s sixth studio album and first release in four years.
“I have been touring and working on various projects the last couple of years and pondering what I wanted my next moves to be,” says Ginuwine, who rose to stardom in the late 90s with the release of “Pony.”
“I didn’t want to rush into just doing what a label told me to do but rather take time to be creative and find music and projects that I have creative control over,” he said. Notifi is giving me the support and creative freedom to record the sounds I think best represent me.”
Also lending production talent are Bryan Michael Cox and Warren “Oak” Felder, who is responsible for Chris Brown’s latest single, “Superhuman” featuring Keri Hilson.
Ginuwine has also tapped RL of the group Next, writing team The Clutch and Johnta Austin as songwriters for the project. Bun B is the lone guest appearance that has been confirmed.
“The New Beginning” is due out during the second quarter of next year.
