After enjoying critical acclaim, commercial success as a solo artist and as an actress, Eve has not released a full-length album since 2002’s Eve-Olution. The self-proclaimed “pitbull in a skirt” took to the social-networking site Twitter to announce that she has left Interscope Records and has plans for an album in 2010.
“Let me tell u [sic] what happened with music so y’all don’t think I quit,” Eve wrote. “Left Interscope, free agent now. Went back in re-doing music. Trust me.”
In a 2009 interview with the New York Post, Eve stated similar reasons for the delay of her fourth album. The album was originally titled Here I Am then renamed Flirt.
“Unfortunately I am caught up in a whole music label situation,” Eve told the Post. “The album is finally going to come out this spring or summer. But with all the time that passed, we went back in and reworked the whole thing. I am truly, truly sitting on some amazing music. Nobody’s been waiting longer than me to get this monkey off my back!”
After moving from from Interscope to Geffen and still not releasing an album, Eve expanded her acting portfolio with her own television show as well as various movie roles. Eve added that her upcoming album is tentatively titled Lip Lock, and the previously released singles “Tambourine” and “Give It To You” will be on the album as bonus tracks.
