Contest: Win An Autographed Copy of Silk’s Brand New Album ‘Quiet Storm’

Silk Quiet Storm Cover

90s R&B fans have plenty to celebrate today, as veteran group SILK have released their long-awaited new album Quiet Storm, via Silk Entertainment/Shanachie Entertainment. The follow-up to 2006’s Always and Forever, finds all 5 original members back together and giving fans their breath-taking harmonies as glorious as ever.

Produced by Wirlie Morris (producer of hits by Charlie Wilson, Keith Sweat and Dru Hill), the album delivers 10 all-new compositions that put the classic SILK sound into a contemporary soundscape. Highlights include the sexy “Baby Suit,” the romantic lead single “Love 4 U To Like Me,” and the uptempo “Billionaire.”

SILK is one of the greatest and most successful R&B vocal groups of the past 20 years; protégés of Keith Sweat, they rose to fame with such smash hits as “Freak Me,” “Lose Control,” “Hooked On You,” “If You (Lovin’ Me),” and went on to sell over 4 million records worldwide. They have remained a relevant staple of the R&B scene as evidenced by appearances on the nationally televised BET Music Awards and the SoulTrain Music Awards.

We here at ThisisRnB have been excited about the album and we’ve teamed up with Silk to give some lucky fans a special autographed copy of the CD! We have 5 signed copies ready to land in the hands of real R&B fans anywhere.

Quiet Storm is currently available in stores and on iTunes now. See the rules and regulations for your chance to win the autographed CD below!
