In a triumphant return to her trademark neo-soul, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Angie Stone released a new single, dubbed "Do What U Gotta Do."  The first track off of Stone’s upcoming album, Rich Girl, due Sept. 25 on SRR. "Do What U Gotta Do" is a seductive mix of groove, guitars and an irresistible sing-along chorus. Aw yeah! Like a hot knife through butter.
Written specifically for Angie by Y'anna Crawley (winner of BET talent competition Sunday Best), the empowering "Do What U Gotta Do" sets the tone for the entire Rich Girl album. "It jump-started my brain," says Ston. "I was excited and gave me a whole new outlook on what I was doing. It started the record both literally and inspirationally."
The strong lyrics resonated deeply with Stone, who explains, "It was telling me to keep my head up, saying "you can make it and do what you gotta do," giving me the beginning of the new album and the resolve to make it into something beyond anything I had ever done before."
