It was close to two years ago when rapper Eve [click to read] released her single “Tambourine” from the album Here I Am. Although the single was released, Here I Am never was, and instead was shelved for almost two years [click to read].
Now the Philadelphia-born rapper will finally have the opportunity to release a fourth album, but under a new name and label. Currently entitled Flirt, Eve’s upcoming album will be released on Geffen Records.
Due to the delay, Flirt will feature a number of re-recorded tracks from Here I Am.
“Unfortunately I am caught up in a whole music label situation,” Eve told the New York 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!”
As far as the name change is concerned, the change was a reflection of Eve‘s new state of mind.
“I had to get in there and put in some upbeat music that I wasn’t depressed about…It won’t be called ‘Here I Am’ anymore,” Eve explained to the Post.
Aside from rapping, Eve has appeared in a number of films including Barbershop, The Cookout, and most recently Flashbacks of a Fool. Eve will also appear in Drew Barrymore’s upcoming directorial debut, Whip It!.
