The quadruple threat is finally releasing her very 1st studio album and it's massive one at that. Allowing herself to be in a place where she can be true to oneself has produced a total of 21 songs and the boys take on the daunting task of consuming them all. With four themes (Noble, Savage, Unknown, and Pleasures) she is serving up a worldly array of dishes that easily makes her one of the best in the biz.
