*There is suddenly major movement in the Tamia camp.
The singer has signed with Def Jam Recordings to release her sixth album, due sometime in spring 2015, reports Billboard.
Her most recent studio set, 2012’s “Beautiful Surprise,” was released through her own Capitol/EMI-distributed label Plus One Music Group. The album, her first after a six-year hiatus, debuted at No. 6 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The album earned two Grammy nominations: best R&B song for the title track and best R&B album.
Currently signed to Chris Smith Management, Tamia burst onto the scene in 1995 when Quincy Jones introduced her on the single “You Put a Move on My Heart.” She later teamed with Brandy, Gladys Knight and Chaka Khan on the top 10 R&B single “Missing You” from the 1996 “Set It Off “soundtrack.
Her other hits include “So Into You,” “Stranger in My House” and her No. 1 R&B duet with Eric Benét, “Spend My Life With You.”
Tamia, wife of retired NBA star Grant Hill, shared a photo to announce the news via her Instagram account:
