No title for the Steffans album has been revealed at presstime.

Steffans entered into prominence to the mainstream media when she released a book, after rising to fame as a Hip-Hop video actress.

The legend of her sexual prowess was already urban lore in many rap circles.

Steffans became well known when she published her autobiography, a tell-all called Confessions of a Video Vixen.

In the book, she unveiled some of her sexual encounters with several Hip-Hop and sports figures.

The book created a firestorm of controversy in the entertainment world.
