Triumphantly re-launching his career on his own terms after a taxing detour, Bobby Valentino is prepping his EMI Records debut REBIRTH via his own Blu Kolla Dreams imprint. The gifted vocalist is familiar with new beginnings. Bobby first charted as a member of Mista, the teenage group responsible for the innovative single "Blackberry Molasses." Intent on forging a solo career, he reinvented himself as Bobby Valentino and smashed the scene with 2005 chart- topper "Slow Down." His self-titled solo debut, released later that year on fellow Atlantan Ludacriss Disturbing Tha Peace/Def Jam label, reached number three on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart. With changes being made in his life Bobby embarked on a journey of introspection and soul-searching which resulted in REBIRTH, his most intriguing and personal album to date. Alongside gifted producers L.O.S, Raphael Saadiq and long-time collaborators Tim & Bob, the talented songwriter offers a mature effort that will both please loyal fans and win over fickle critics.
