Grammy Nominated R&B Star Eric Benét To Release New Album On October 7, 2016

Four-time Grammy-nominated R&B singer, Eric Benét will release his self-titled, eighth studio album in North America on October 7, 2016. The 13-track album was recorded and produced in Los Angeles and includes a remix of the first single, “Sunshine.” The remix, which is streaming exclusively on Rap-Up today, sees Eric reuniting with R&B sensation Tamia who was also featured on Eric’s #1 hit, “Spend My Life With You.” Fans can pre-order eric benét on September 9 and when they do, they will receive the remix as an instant grat-track.

“Sunshine” was released on May 13 and has been climbing the radio charts since, reaching the Top 5 at Urban/AC this week. In April, Billboard gave fans a sneak peak of the track saying the song has a “feel-good groove.” When asked about the single Eric said, “‘Sunshine’ is a reflective memory about a relationship that has lost its spark, with a longing for how love-filled and joyous their lives used to be. The song will hopefully inspire people to actively create and savor the joy and sunshine in every one of their relationships.”

The singer will be performing songs off eric benét when he hits the road with Anthony Hamilton and Lalah Hathaway this fall. The “What I’m Feelin'” tour kicks off on October 6 in Durham and will take them across the east coast hitting D.C., Baltimore, Detroit, Nashville, New Orleans and more, before wrapping in Richmond on October 30.
