Tamia is smoking up the charts with her brand new single “Leave It Smokin’” which just hit the top 10 of the Billboard Urban AC chart. The sensual and soulful track is the first release off her forthcoming album, Passion Like Fire, due out September 7.
Today, the R&B songstress premieres the Salaam Remi-produced song’s official music video, which showcases her natural beauty while performing in a smokey lounge as club goers dance and groove along.
“Let’s give in to our temptations,” sings Tamia. “Every minute with you / Let’s exceed our expectations / Every moment with you.”
The R&B songbird’s seventh studio album finds Tami working with Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, Miguel), Lil Ronnie (Ne-Yo, Ciara) and Shep Crawford (Whitney Houston, Boyz II Men), as well as working for the first time with Latin producer Andres Torres (Marc Anthony) and Toronto-based Gray Hawken (Locals Only Sound).
“I’m really excited to debut new music, connect with my fans, and show my continued evolution as an artist,” states Tamia. “I’m still passionate about music and the process and I hope listeners can feel that with ‘Passion Like Fire.’ I’m so excited to have reunited with Salaam Remi on ‘Leave It Smokin’,’ it feels like summertime, fun and a perfect way to introduce this album.”
