Syleena Johnson - It Is True

Posted 8 years ago
Producer:
Toxic
Album:
Chapter 4: Labor Pains

Since Chapter 3: The Flesh was released in ‘05, singer Syleena Johnson has been through numerous life changes.  After leaving longtime label Jive (on good terms), the Chicago songbird has made various moves on a personal level (getting married and having a son), as well as on the business side (launching her own label, Aneelys Records).  Now, ready to open back up her book this coming September, Syleena will present to the world Chapter 4, appropriately titled Labor Pains.  The first page is somewhat brighter than the rest of the chapter, as It Is True expresses the joy of having found true love that lasts, which is only enhanced by producer Toxic‘s harp-synth-brass-percussion mix.
