From Billboard – The single, titled Girl Meets Boy, it will come out June 27th, the day after Sheila E is part of a tribute to Prince at the BET Awards.
She had been recording a dance album when “that whole thing happened,” she says, referring to the April 21st death of Prince.
“It just wasn’t the music I wanted out right now,” she told Billboard. “It’s not how I’m feeling; everything has changed. So a couple of weeks ago, I decided to write a whole new album. And it feels right.”
The rest of the album, which will feature uptempo tracks and ballads influenced in some ways by the pair’s relationship will go on sale later this year.
