DEBORAH COX IS BACK!: 'The Promise' is singer's first release in six years.
*(New York, NY) - International recording artist DEBORAH COX makes a strong return to the musical landscape with her independent release and first contemporary R&B album in six years-THE PROMISE.
The CD marks the multi-platinum-selling artist return to the world of R&B, where her song "Nobody's Supposed To Be Here" broke the record for the longest-running number one single for 14 weeks (holding the record for eight years) on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip Hip Songs chart.
Showcasing the GRAMMY®-nominee's amazing powerhouse vocals, THE PROMISE features production by an all-star team of collaborators including John Legend (Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill), Big Jim Wright (Elton John, String, Janet Jackson), Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson), Shep Crawford (Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross) and Devo Springsteen (Kanye West, Estelle).
THE PROMISE has been nominated for a 2009 JUNO Award (Canada's Music Awards) for Best R&B/Soul Recording. Called "music's biggest night in Canada," Cox, a Canadian native, will appear on the annual award show as a presenter, scheduled to air Sunday, March 29 from Vancouver on CTV.
The current single, "Saying Goodbye," is shaping up to be Cox's biggest single in years: #1 Most Added at Urban AC in its first week; and the single has received airplay on over 20 stations in the past three weeks including KJLH (Los Angeles), WBLS (New York), KBLX (San Francisco), and WSRB (Chicago).
"Beautiful U.R." is the first Top 40 single from the album and is already certified gold in Canada with over 40,000 downloads. The single is currently the 11th most played song in that territory (#29 on Billboard's Top 100 chart) and is the longest running Canadian song on the charts (26 weeks). The success of the single is quickly spreading to the U.S. "Beautiful U.R." is on Billboard's Top 25 Singles chart with over 5,000 plays/26.5 million total audience and is Top 20 at CKEY-FM in Buffalo with airplay increases in Boston, Albany and Hartford. In addition, the accompanying video has received over one million views on YouTube and is currently #1 on the MuchMoreMusic Countdown.
Not only has THE PROMISE received acclaim from Cox's worldwide legion of fans, but recognition from critics alike, including The New York Times that writes, "Tears lurk just behind Deborah Cox's tremulous voice, and the closer they get to the surface the better she sounds. Whether she's aching or pulling herself together she now sounds like her own woman."
