Title Track Of Her Anticipated Album CERTIFIED

Acclaimed R&B singer/songwriter, actress, reality TV show star and social media personality Keke Wyatt is set to release her first new recording, Certified, in seven years on Shanachie Entertainment, June 28, 2024. Keke’s dynamic range, jaw-dropping versatility, flawless runs, and electrifying performances have cemented her place as one of the greatest singers of her generation. Her larger-than-life personality, candor about being the proud mother of eleven children and transparency about life’s everyday challenges and triumphs, have endeared her to a devoted fanbase. Keke Wyatt’s fifth new recording and second for Shanachie, Certified is produced by Blac Elvis (Usher, Beyoncé) and offers a big dose of pure Keke, as she serves us her take on relationships and faith, featuring nine captivating originals and one sterling cover.

Certified is certifiably classic Keke replete with impeccable vocals, fire tracks, soul, grit, and a surprise or two. The album opens with “My Ex,” a sultry number reminiscent of Prince with a bouncy groove and searing guitar, as Keke reminds us,” If I wanted less, I could have stayed with my ex.” The bluesy track, “Somebody” sets the record straight while “She” conjures vibes of Sade as Keke explores the mindset of a woman who knows what she wants. The mid-tempo swinger and stepper’s groove (also the album’s first single) “Water Into Wine,” finds Keke singing about the trials and tribulations of love stating, “I can’t turn water to wine, sight to the blind/Baby I don’t specialize in making miracles.” On “Come Back To Bed” Keke demands some more attention and for her desires to make love a reality. Certified also features a surprising and electrifying take on the Alex North/Hy Zaret standard, “Unchained Melody,” originally written as the theme to the film Unchained. The classic in Keke’s hands is utterly beautiful and shines a light on both her Country and Gospel roots. Her pure and unfettered rendition is yet another reminder why she is in a league of her own. Keke flips the script and takes us to the Dancehall with her dubbed out “Scared,” where she asks the question “Baby is you gonna do right by me because if you ain’t you should leave?” The album’s title track, is the current single, “Certified.” Keke puts her own spin on a classic Doo-wop feel with “Open” where she tantalizes one word at a time. Certified closes with the incredibly moving and prayerful “Deliver Me,” where Keke earnestly gives thanks for her gifts and her family and acknowledges she is walking down a path that somebody else paved for her.

Keke Wyatt first came to national attention as a teenager when “My First Love,” her duet with Avant hit the Top 10 in 2000. As a result, she was signed to Geffen Records, and at age 18 scored a platinum-selling debut album featuring “Nothing In This World,” another hit duet with Avant. The duo was also featured on the soundtrack of the film Barbershop 2. In 2010, she released a new album, Who Knew? on Shanachie Entertainment, which featured the Top 30 Urban AC title track single. Keke’s second album on Shanachie, Unbelievable, spawned a single duet with American Idol winner Ruben Studdard. Keke then attained a featured role on the TV One reality show R&B Divas: Atlanta, which ran for four seasons. Subsequently, she and her then-husband appeared along with other celebrity couples in the WE TV series Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. Launching her own label, Keke released an E.P. and two albums, one of original material and one of known songs entitled Keke Covers. Her soulful version of country star Chris Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey” from the latter album garnered over 10 million views on YouTube. Keke also had a role as a minister’s wife in the Bounce TV series Saints & Sinners and starred in the stage play Preacher’s Kid Resurrection alongside Angie Stone. More recently, fans have enjoyed following Keke in the WE TV reality series Keke Wyatt’s World where she gave a glimpse to viewers on how she balances motherhood, career, and stardom. With the release of Certified, Keke now has the time and space to devote to the long-anticipated new album her fans have been waiting for.

Keke promises, “Fans can expect some good ole Sanging honey!! I want to give my fans the gift of love, hope and trust with my new music. However, don’t get it twisted because I’m singing about it all. I think everyone will be able to relate to this album.”
