As he prepares his long delayed return to the R&B world, singer Ginuwine has enlisted the help of two Hip-Hop heavyweights, one a long-time collaborator.
The singer, who rose to superstardom in the late 90s following the success of his debut single “Pony,” is currently in the studio with producer Timbaland working on his sixth studio album, Asylum Records revealed today.
The New Beginning will be Ginuwine’s first since in four years.
It will be released via Notifi Records, with distribution through Asylum.
“I have been touring and working on various projects the last couple of years and pondering what I wanted my next moves to be,” the multi-platinum artist reveals. “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. Notifi is giving me the support and creative freedom to record the sounds I think best represent me.”
Assisting Timbaland on production duties are Bryan Michael Cox and Warren “Oak” Felder, who is responsible for Chris Brown 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.
But so far, only one guest appearance has been confirmed: that of Southern Hip-Hop legend Bun B.
The New Beginning is due out during the second quarter of next year.
