Marsha Ambrosius Enters R&B Chart at No.1 With Solo Debut
It seemed as if Marsha Ambrosius fell off the face of the planet in the five years since Floetry — the London-based duo she fronted with Natalie Stewart — disbanded. But, music fans didn’t forget about Ambrosius; her long-waited solo debut, ‘Late Nights & Early Mornings,’ debuted on the Billboard’s R&B Albums Chart at No. 1 this week.
Ambrosius’ comeback doesn’t stop there either. ‘Late Nights & Early Mornings’ sold 96,000 units, putting it at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200, behind British singer Adele. The album is led by the single, ‘Far Away,’ that has a tight grip on Urban Adult Contemporary Airplay chart at No. 9. “Late Nights & Early Mornings’ has been the easiest thing for me to do,” Ambrosius told The BoomBox last month. “It’s completely honest and sensual in its approach, and takes you on a romantic journey.”
Later this month, Ambrosius sets out on the BET Music Matters tour alongside Melanie Fiona. The month-long jaunt kicks off on March 16 in Dallas, Texas, and will hit up 23 other cities before it ends in mid-April.
