It's been a while since we've heard new material from Goapele but the R&B singer has just released a bouncy new single called 'Hey Boy.' The song, which was co-penned by Estelle, is the perfect summertime jam for the dance floor or the roller rink.

"I wanted to do my version of an uptempo song this time around -- something fun to perform and dance to," she told

Produced by Keith Harris, the song features Goapele singing the praises of her newfound love.

"I must confess that this connection is simply special ain't no question, boy don't try to play it cool," she sings, adding, "We don’t need to read in-between the's on tonight."

'Hey Boy' is the first single from Goapele's fifth studio album, 'Strong As Glass.'

"[It's] full of surprises and I hope my fans will enjoy this musical journey with me," she says of the project. "I sung my heart out on this project and I got to work with producers and writers that pushed me as an artist."
