Radio personality Wendy Williams
has assembled some of her favorite Hip-Hop and R&B artists to present Wendy
Williams Brings the Heat Vol. 1, featuring the likes of Jadakiss, Juelz Santana,
Jim Jones, Black Rob, and M.O.P.
"I'm a lover of music, and getting the opportunity to put out this CD has
helped me express the full range of my love of R&B and hip-hop," Williams
said in a statement. "This album is another outlet to talk to my fans. With
my books, my radio shows, television -- this is an aspect of media that I really
hadn't thought of before."
Exclusive tracks include "Man Up" by Amerie featuring Nas, "Everytime,"
a collaboration between Jaheim and Jadakiss, and Black Rob's "Warrior."
Williams has been a radio jock at New York 's Hot 97, Philly's Power 99, and currently
New York's WBLS.
The New Jersey native's previous forays outside radio included several specials
on VH1 and a tell-all biography about her rise to fame and personal affairs.
Wendy Williams Brings the Heat Vol . 1 is scheduled for release on June
28 through Virgin Records. The album was executive-produced by Kevin 'PPG' Hunter.
