The #RHOP star /R&B songstress was previously seen on the show working on her song “I See You” and on June 9 she announced that her debut album is finished.
“Oh you guys!! My album is DONE,” said Candiace on Twitter. “It’s been turned in and release dates are impending. I can’t wait to give y’all the deets.”
Candiace also confirmed that her album has artist features and remixes.
“Oh you guys!! My album is DONE,” wrote Candiace. “I can’t wait to give y’all the deets”
Now it looks like Candiace’s promotion for her album is in full swing and it includes the album’s first single “Drive Back.”
Centered around a woman “driving back” to a relationship despite its faults, Candiace premiered the video on BET Soul.
In it, we see Candiace on a date with her bearded boo before she catches him flirting with their waitress. She leaves and gets into some boom kackin’ choreography before linking up with her #RHOP castmates Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, Wendy Osefo, Karen Huger, and Mia Thornton who notice that Candy’s man has “driven back” to be with her and make things right. Candiace’s mother Ms. Dorothy is also in the video as well.
After the video’s premiere, Candiace thanked her team for being a “loyal village” and supporting her single. She kicked off her thanks with a special shoutout to her hubby Chris Bassett for “keeping her sane” and gave props to her publicist, co-writer, choreographer, dancers, and more.
“I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR MY TEAM,” wrote Candiace.
