Syleena Johnson Update

Syleena Johnson Update Some of you may have been wondering about the whereabouts of R&B songstress Syleena Johnson, following the release of her last album ‘Chapter 3: The Flesh’ back in 2005.
After the poor performance of her last LP, Syleena severed ties with then label Jive Records in 2006. A year later the singer gave birth to her and husband Kiwane Garris’ first child – Kiwane Garris Jr in August 2007.
Having signed a deal this year with with Federal, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group, Johnson’s own label Aneelys Records (Syleena spelt backwards) will release her new album ‘Chapter 4: Labor Pains’ as a joint-venture on September 2nd. {Source} Check out new promo pics for the release below:

I’m real amped for Syleena’s new album; ‘Chapter 3: The Flesh’ was one of my favourite records upon its release – I vividly remember having ‘Hypnotiq’ and ‘Another Relationship’ on constant rotation. It’s a shame the album didn’t fare as well as it could and should have – much of which can be attributed to the label’s lack of support. Here’s hoping that ‘Chapter 4’ earns Syleena the recognition she deserves.

Any thoughts?

    Thank you so much for updating us on Syleena Johnson! I am a HUGE fan of hers and I’m always depressed when I think about her and how little promotion she gets. She is a truly talented artist and I’m glad to see more fans out there! Thank you!

    I wondered what happened to Ms. Syleena. I have always enjoyed her soulful voice. Looking forward to hearing something new from her.

    Syleena, Syleena, Syleena!! What a wonderful gift from God…this Woman is in my life!!! I was quite upset about the low promotions of Chapter 3: The Flesh….I’ve worn out that CD so swell, I had to buy another copy!! Then had to get my dj friends to speed up the track so it could sound right to me cuz I just WORE IT OUT!!!

    I have EVERYTHING she has recorded!! Yes, even the album with her and her father,Syl!! I can not wait for this new project to drop!! After having the privilege of working on a play with her, I think I proved my loyalty to her as I showed her I carry with me Chapter 2: The Voice around in my back pack for “I Believe in Love” and the other tracks that I fell in love with!!

    She is an inspiration and I am very happy for her and the new baby!! Congrats, girl!!!! And I’m waiting for this new album to be added to my collection!!!!!
