Listen: Stacy Barthe Teases New Album ‘BEcoming’ with Sampler, Releases Full Version of “Angel”

Stacy Barthe BEcoming Album

Stacy Barthe is coming, in fact she is ‘BEcoming.’

Building an adorning fan base through her infectious, soulful voice the singer-songwriter has been pretty quiet this year, but it turns out Stacy has just been getting everything right to finally release her official debut album via John Legends Homeschool label / Motown.

Following her 2013 EP ‘P.S. I Love You,’ Stacy isn’t letting 2014 come to a close without giving fans a preview of her full length album BEcoming.  Sharing snippets and full versions of 6 tracks from the LP boasting production from Malay, Benny Cassette and DJ Camper, Stacy is surely going to deliver a stellar sonic project.

The Brooklyn native soundtracks the struggle with songs like “Hey You There” and “Eyes Wide Shut,” while balancing out the lows with natural highs on the Common-assisted “Live For Today.”

In addition, Stacy has released the full version of her remake of Anita Baker’s “Angel,” which was originally released as a duet interlude on John Legend’s last album Love In The Future, and it’s kinda amazing.

Take a listen to the album sampler and full song below!

New Music: Stacy Barthe – War IV Love

Stacy Barthe - War IV Love

We haven’t heard much from Stacy Barthe this year, until now.  The R&B singer-songwriter is working on her debut album for Motown Records, and recently premiered two brand new songs during different episodes of BET’s popular show ‘Being Mary Jane.’  The two records, “Extraordinary Love” and “War IV Love” are her first releases since last year’s stellar ‘P.S. I Love You‘ EP.

The later of the two, “War IV Love,” opens with tribal drums and thumping bass guitar, but Stacy sets a mellow mood with her tender tone, while still exuding the seriousness of her desire to remain in the grasp of love.

“I’d suffer war if it meant victory was our love,” she sings.

John Legend Talks New Music, TV Pilots & More on Power106

During his recent visit to Power106 in LA, John Legend spoke to Rikki Martinez about his new music and upcoming album Love In The Future. John spoke about his new EDM record “Dance The Pain Away” with DJ/Producer Benny Benassi. John explained how the song started as an acoustic ballad type, and his co-writer thought it could make a good dance record so they sent it to Benassi to remix, and now it will be a single off his album, not Johns.

Legend also spoke about his foray into television, with two shows in the early stages, one of which is about a rapper that is trying to make it, who happens to be gay. John is very interested in getting into TV and film, and he is constantly working with writers developing ideas to pitch.
