Grammy-Winning R&B Artist Faith Evans Chooses BMG For Publishing And Artist Services Deal

Bookmark and Share

R&B Superstar Faith Evans has signed a worldwide exclusive publishing and Artist Services deal with BMG Chrysalis US for her first new studio album in four years. This fall the company will release her highly-anticipated eighth studio album Incomparable. The record features the lead single 'I Deserve It' with Missy Elliott & Sharaya J.

Currently celebrating 20 years in the music industry, Evans is a multi-platinum Grammy Award winner, New York Times best-selling author and TV producer. She has released three Platinum-certified albums (Faith, Keep The Faith and Faithfully), the Gold-certified The First Lady, and the holiday staple, A Faithful Christmas. Evans was awarded a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 1998 for 'I'll Be Missing You,' a homage to her late husband and Hip-Hop legend Notorious B.I.G. Among some of her most recent accomplishments, Evans serves as a co-creator/Executive-Producer on the hit-reality docu-series franchise, R&B Divas, and in 2014 received a Grammy nomination in the Best R&B Album category for Faith Evans R&B Divas.

BMG Artist Services represents a new way of releasing recordings devised in response to an increasing demand from artists for more control over their careers. With BMG Artist Services, artists retain ownership of their recordings and full creative control. BMG and the artist jointly oversee each aspect of the release from budget to marketing and promotion and the artist receives the bulk of the revenues. Around 80 albums have been released through BMG Artist Services, including albums from current Billboard chart-toppers JOE and Danny Gokey, Anastacia, Backstreet Boys, Bryan Ferry and You Me At Six. Forthcoming releases include albums from The Smashing Pumpkins and 3 Winans Brothers.

Faith Evans commented: "I am truly proud to join the forces of my imprint, Prolific Music Group, with BMG to present my next project, Incomparable. I look forward to a great partnership, as we are all very excited about this amazing collection of timeless R&B music."

Manager Cheryl Flowers-Briggs added: "I'm proud to have been a part of Faith's management team for nearly two decades and I'm looking forward to making music history once again with BMG, a company that was such a big part of Faith's early success."

Zach Katz, Chief Creative Officer at BMG Chrysalis North America, said: "Faith is part of an elite group of artists whose music and spirit speaks profoundly to generations of listeners. We warmly welcome her to our BMG family and look forward to sharing her powerful body of work with the world."

Jermi Thomas, Creative Senior Manager at BMG Chrysalis US said: "Faith continues to make a cultural impact with her level of artistry and iconic status as R&B/Hip Hop royalty. BMG is excited to make history with Faith and build her legacy of 20 plus years with the release of Incomparable."
