Tamia returns to the music scene with her sixth studio album Love Life by Def Jam Recordings. The Canadian-born singer returned to Def Jam last year on her transition to a major label. “To me, (labels) you kind of have to use them like a rich uncle,” she said. “But, they’ve been really awesome and have let me just do my thing.” With chart topping singles “Into You,” “Stranger in My House” and “Offically Missing You,” Tamia brings a classic R&B sound that sets her voice as the focal point on the album. “Reinvention isn’t exciting unless there’s something existing to reinvent. A record like this, with grown-up passions and accountable moods, stirring key modulations, gauzy slow jams and hyper-mainstream ballads, maintains the tradition,” stated New York Times Ben Ratliff. He added that “there’s a need for albums like Love Life in general, and for albums by Tamia in particular; the understated fullness of her voice returns. But the singer’s persona matters.” She released “Sandwich and a Soda” as the album’s lead single in the United States, it reached number 20 on the US Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart.
