In a triumphant return to her trademark neo-soul, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Angie Stone releases her new
album on Saguaro Road Rhythm. On her 6th studio project Angie explores all aspects of being a RICH GIRL. Expected to be her biggest album yet, the 15-tracks have skin-tight grooves, funky vibes and a beautiful mélange of sounds. It’s a
measure of an artist who has mastered her own identity and left nothing to chance. With RICH GIRL the neo-soul
songwriter has done just that, delivering a powerfully intimate collection of songs that wrap themselves around you like a
warm embrace full of love and compassion, strength and wit.
Written specifically for Angie by Y’anna Crawley (winner of BET talent competition Sunday Best), the empowering “Do What U Gotta Do” sets the tone for the entire Rich Girl album. “It jump-started my brain,” says Stone, “I was excited and gave me a whole new outlook on what I was doing. It started the record both literally and inspirationally.” The strong lyrics resonated deeply with Stone, who explains, “It was telling me to keep my head up, saying ‘you can make it and do what you gotta do,’ giving me the beginning of the new album and the resolve to make it into something beyond anything I had ever done before.”
Angie Stone has been nominated for three Grammy Awards, two Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards, and has released four Top 10 R&B albums (with her The Art of Love & War going all the way to number one). An acclaimed songwriter, her work has been recorded by Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu, Raphael Saadiq, Musiq (Soulchild) and many more.
