Kelly Price may have made a gospel album in the past but the soulful songstress is returning to her R&B roots with a new album. The New York native is gearing up for the release of ‘Kelly,’ an effort set to feature production from the likes of Warryn Campbell, Shep Crawford, Jazz Nixon and Lawrence Waddell.

The forthcoming LP, Kelly’s sixth to date, has already spawned two singles: the emotional ballad ‘Tired’ and the Stokley Williams’-assisted ‘Not My Daddy.’ Price’s work with the Mint Condition member on the latter track was a natural one.

“This song literally wrote itself, which happens to me every once in a while,” Price said in a statement. “The melody came to me first and then I envisioned a live band to truly impact my audience and that’s when I called up Stokley. We made this song to encourage lovers to get back to being lovers. Stop parenting one another and just love each other.”

Recently, the ‘Soul of a Woman’ creator was added to the stellar line-up of performers set to showcase their hits at the 2011 Essence Music Festival, held in New Orleans, July 1 through 3. The festival celebrates the roots of R&B and features over a dozen R&B acts including Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott and Trey Songz.

‘Kelly’ is scheduled to hit store shelves on May 3.
