Tamia Honors 19th Wedding Anniversary By Releasing “Today I Do” Video

Singer Tamia and former professional NBA player Grant Hill just celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary. In honor of the couple’s nuptials, Tamia released the beautiful video for “Today I Do.” Tamia is set to release a new album Passion Like Fire on September 7.

The 12 song LP reunites Tamia with hit makers Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, Carlos Santana, Alicia Keys), Lil Ronnie (Ne-Yo) and Shep Crawford (Whitney Houston, Boyz II Men) as well as working for the first time with Latin producer Andres Torres (Marc Anthony). The lead single “Leave It Smokin’” sizzles as it features Tamia’s sultry vocals on the grown and sexy mid-tempo romp. Already a top 10 hit on the Billboard and Mediabase urban AC charts, “Leave It Smokin’” is an instant summer hit that has landed Tamia back on the top of the charts. In addition, the long-awaited video for “Leave It Smokin’” premiered via BETSoul, BETHer, and BET.com. The single is available on all digital platforms. It’s been three years since her last project Love Life.

“I’m really excited to debut new music, connect with my fans, and show my continued evolution as an artist. I’m still passionate about music and the process and I hope listeners can feel that with “Passion Like Fire,” states Tamia. “I’m so excited to have reunited with Salaam Remi on “Leave It Smokin’,” it feels like summertime, fun and a perfect way to introduce this album. I’m so grateful to the fans and radio stations for supporting it.”

Tamia’s single “Leave It Smokin'” is a favorite song for listeners and is in heavy rotation on WHUR.

The album, in turn, also marks another momentous occasion: the 20th anniversary of Tamia’s critically acclaimed, self-titled 1998 debut album. The album initiated a string of hits that the six-time Grammy Award nominee has steadily spun off along the way, including “You Put a Move on My Heart,” “Missing You” with Brandy, Gladys Knight and Chaka Khan, “Spend My Life with You” with Eric Benét, “So into You,” “Stranger in My House” and “Into You” with Fabolous.

The Grammy-nominated artist launches her Passion Like Fire Tour in September to promote her album. She’s currently performing in several cities around the country and is set to perform in the DMV this weekend. Find out when she’s in your in your area.
