Record-breaking Platinum-selling recording artist Deborah Cox returns with her first new studio album in six years, THE PROMISE. The album marks the former Clive Davis protégé’s return to R&B music, where her hit song “Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here,” broke the record for the longest-running number one single on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Showcasing Cox’s amazing powerhouse vocals, who used to sing backup for Celine Dion, the album features production by an all-star team of collaborators, including John Legend (Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill), Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson), Big Jim Wright (Mary J. Blige, Aretha Franklin), Shep Crawford (Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross), Devo Springsteen (Kanye West, Estelle) and the Avila Brothers (Toni Braxton, Gwen Stefani).
A multi-talented entertainer, Cox has conquered the R&B and pop charts, including six top-20 Billboard R&B singles, an impressive nine #1 hits on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play chart and a starring role in Elton John and Tim Rice’s Broadway musical, Aida. In addition to roles in both film and television, Deborah also released a tribute album to the legendary Dinah Washington last year on Universal.
