In Her Own Words: Marsha Ambrosius confirms signing to J Records, Forthcoming Collaborations + New Album


SoulCulture exclusive: Marsha Ambrosius confirms being signed to J Records. Just Blaze, Dre and Vidal and Focus are among the special guests featuring on her forthcoming album, Yours Sincerely… Marsha Ambrosius, to be released this year.

“Well, long story short, I AM SO EXCITED!!! :)  Having a solid career as a song-writer/producer for so long had me in a very comfortable lane.  It really wasn’t a decision made on my part to pursue a solo career, it was a blessing to be offered.  My deal with Dr.Dre became a writing/production relationship with the Interscope building and I was cool with that.

Right now, I am so thankful to have a home at J Records, home of Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx, Mario all of which  I have had the pleasure of working with.  J Records having an understanding with the direction of my sound and style has taken a great weight off my shoulders (literally lol – lost weight on weightwatchers HA!) and I am so comfortable and confident and happy to just be able to make music that I’m in love with again.

I have a tentative title for the album “Yours Sincerely… Marsha Ambrosius” which will be available some time this year (don’t know when for sure just yet) and I’m in the studio right now putting the icing on the cake.  I treat my music like home cooked meals, it takes time, can’t just bung it in the microwave or order it to go in 5mins.  I need to get all these flavors making sense together and have my listeners pressing play and letting it repeat over and over till you realize you listened to that song already :)

I’m making AN ALBUM!!! I can’t wait to share it with the world :) I have Just Blaze, Dre & Vidal, Focus, myself and SPECIAL GUESTS TBA on MY album :) Woohoo :) :) :)”

Yours Truly,

Marsha Ambrosius
