Legendary R&B trio En Vogue is ready to heat up the airwaves this winter with new music and we’ve got an exclusive first listen.
Preparing for the anticipated release of their forthcoming new album, Electric Cafe, the ladies are in true form as they effortlessly blend smooth harmonies with sultry vocals on their latest single, “Rocket.” While fans will be pleased to hear that the signature En Vogue sound certainly shines through on the track, the group also enlisted the help of fellow artist, Ne-Yo, to bring it to life. In addition to a solid catalogue of his own music, Ne-Yo’ resume in music features an impressive list of writing credits for other superstar artists including Beyonce, Rihanna, Celine Dion — and now, En Vogue.
After joining the Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter on tour earlier this summer, the group says they were excited to have him pen the lyrics for their new single.
“This summer we had the pleasure of touring with Ne-Yo in Australia and he’s truly a singer’s songwriter,” En Vogue told ESSENCE. “We’re honored to have the opportunity to put our signature sound on a song from one of the most talented artists and composers today.”
The single was produced by Curtis “Sauce” Wilson, while the upcoming album will include a guest feature from Snoop Dog, as well as additional production from a host of industry veterans including Raphael Saadiq.
Electric Cafe is slated for release on March 30, 2018. Download “Rocket” now, HERE.
