Brick & Lace Prepare “Love Is Wicked” for June Release

Santa Monica, Cal -- Having conquered US charts --“Locked Up,” “Soul Survivor,” “I Want to Love You” —wielding his melodic, mercurial voice, Akon is flexing his critical ear with Kon Live, a personal label distributed by Geffen Records. As impresario, Senegal’s shining son was quick to solicit other imported flavor, signing Jamaican sister duo Brick & Lace as his debut act. The alliance makes perfect sense: sisters Nyanda and Nailah Thorbourne had already come to regard Akon, in demand as much for his production as his vocal stylings, as their "third member." He’s all over their album Love is Wicked, lacing lead single “Never Never” with a grimy giddy-up. Set to serve as the summer’s sultry soundtrack Love Is Wicked will be released on Kon Live/180 Ent./Geffen Records June 26th.

The video for “Never Never” premiered on Yahoo, while the song will be featured on iTunes March 27th as “SINGLE OF THE WEEK.” Log onto iTunes on Tuesday and you can download the track for free for one week!

You can also see Brick & Lace live as they head out on the road with Gwen Stefani and Akon this spring. The tour kicks off April 21st in Las Vegas at The Pearl Concert Theater and wraps up June 23rd in Irvine, California at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre.

Brick & Lace’s dynamic as artists and their earnest appeal stems from their songwriting savvy. Nyanda and Nailah wrote or co-wrote every song on Love Is Wicked. In fact, the sisters Thorbourne have penned hits for Janet Jackson, Paris Hilton and recently wrote songs for Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls for her upcoming solo project. In addition to Akon, Brick & Lace teamed up with an arsenal of producers to give Love Is Wicked its versatile sound, most notably will.i.am, Tony “CD” Kelly , Cool & Dre, FULL FORCE, Ron Fair and Lenky.
