Angie Stone Empowers Us with New Single, “Do What U Gotta Do”

I was just asking a friend about Angie Stone a few days ago. It’s been a while since we’ve heard any new music from our December 2010 cover model but all of that is about to change.

In a triumphant return to her trademark neo-soul, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Angie Stone releases a new single this week, “Do What U Gotta Do,” kicking it off with a party in Los Angeles sponsored by legendary R&B radio station KJLH. The first track off of Stone’s upcoming album, Rich Girl, (due September 25th on SRR Records), “Do What U Gotta Do” is seductive mix of groove, guitars and an irresistible sing-along chorus.

The single was written fellow curvy girl Y’anna Crawley (winner of BET talent competition Sunday Best), and it sets the tone for the empowering album. The strong lyrics resonated deeply with Stone, who explains, “It was telling me to keep my head up, saying ‘you can make it and do what you gotta do,’ giving me the beginning of the new album and the resolve to make it into something beyond anything I had ever done before.”

Take a listen and tell us what you think.
