Rapsody has unveiled the tracklist and cover art for her forthcoming album EVE set to drop on the 23 August 2019.
Queen Latifah, J.I.D, Leikeli47, GZA, D’Angelo and J. Cole are among the special guests who help pay tribute to some of Rapsody’s heroes with 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Eric G, Nottz & Mark Byrd handling production on the project. Powerful women such as Oprah, Nina Simone and Afeni Shakur are a few of those honored on the project.
In a recent interview, the Grammy Award-winning artist explained the concept behind the 16-track effort.
“I’m influenced by so many black women,” she said. A lot of people already know I’m heavily influenced by Lauryn Hill, MC Lyte, and Queen Latifah,” she said. “It’s just not all or nothing for me. I’m an extension of them, so every song is going to be a different woman and different energy of what makes Rapsody who she is.”
