(New York, NY) - After achieving success with Floetry, six-time Grammy nominee Marsha Ambrosius is officially breaking out as a solo artist with her captivating new single “Hope She Cheats on You (With a Basketball Player).” The first single off her forthcoming J Records debut album Late Nights & Early Mornings, “Hope She Cheats on You” will impact urban mainstream and adult radio stations on August 16th and August 17th. The single will be available on iTunes on August 17th.
Written and produced by Marsha and Canei, “Hope She Cheats on You (With a Basketball Player)” is, as Marsha describes, “the reality of a bad break up. We wanna be decent human beings and say the right thing, you know, ‘I wish you well.’ But this is ‘Everything that could go wrong for him I want it to because my ego is bruised and I’m acting out.”
Marsha’s in-your-face approach to songwriting, complimented by her amazing voice, has garnered her critical acclaim and a legion of fans. Late Nights & Early Mornings reflects her frank outlook on life, love and relationships. Collaborations with Alicia Keys, Dre & Vidal (producers of “Say Yes”), Just Blaze and more add a raw and edgy vibe to the reflective and soulful album.
