New York, NY (Ra-Fael Blanco) - Singer/ producer/ songwriter and mother of two, Shanice
returns to the music scene after a few years of hiatus with her new album Every Woman Dreams, in stores now. The second single "Take Care of You" was written by Shanice
and Flex Alexander
and is accompanied by a sexy video directed by the critically acclaimed writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood (New Line Cinema's Love and Basketball and HBO's Disappearing Act). "Take Care of You" features cameo appearances by Mo'Nique, Shondrella Avery, Derek Luke and Flex Alexander.
Boasting a five-octave range, which she handles with beauty and ease, it's good to know that she is back on the music scene after a 5-year hiatus, over which she did a lot of writing, performing and also started a family of her own. Every Woman Dreams, encapsulates the spirit of the whole project. No longer the innocent 18 year old that stole our hearts with the wildly addictive I Love Your Smile, she brings a more adult flavor to this new set of sexy songs. Every Woman Dreams, also served as the first single and told the story of a woman that has been through hardships with past relationships but now touts the confidence to demand the kinds of things from a man that her heart truly desires.
Every Woman Dreams is based one hundred percent on my life experience, Shanice explains. Sometimes in life we get a little insecure, not only with our relationship with a man, but in general, life. I want women to stop settling and to start feeling good about themselves, Lovin' ourselves. Shanice soulfully brings it home vocally on this song and eerily evokes the spirit of soul and blues diva Betty Wright.
Every Woman Dreams benefits greatly from all of Shanice's experience. With songs like Ã¢â‚¬Å'So Free, Keep it to Yourself, Crazy 4 U, Take Care of You and Chocolate, which features the highly regarded Grammy nominated violinist Regina Carter, we are invited on a grown & sexy lyrical journey. Working with her this time around is an eclectic mix of writers, producers and a poet that include the producing team PMG (Tony T-Nyse Minter, Richard RukÃ¢ Garcia, and Dominique DomzinoÃ¢ Rodriguez) who along with Shanice co-produced Every Woman Dreams, Keep It To Yourself, Take Care of You and Get Up featuring Sheila E.. They're the next hot producing team and I'm very excited to have worked with them, explains Shanice.
For fans longing for her return, she will delightfully satisfy their hunger, her voice having gotten even tastier with time. Now managed by Vida Nash, president of RHM Management (Record Hit Makers, LLC) and with her own label Imajah Records, Shanice has a joint-venture with Play:Tyme Entertainment headed by Richard Nash, CEO and Mike Kelly, President, and is no longer shackled by the constraints of a major record company.
