Due to some really exciting news that I’ll share with you guys @ a later time, I’ve shifted the album date just a tad bit. Trust me, it’ll be WELL WORTH THE WAIT…but since I AM shifting the date just a tad, I’d like to give you guys a tiny SIP of some more album tea so that I don’t have to get cussed out." She went on to reveal that the album will be dropping later this year, and to share a sweet message thanking her fans for their support. "You. will. love. this. album," she told them.
