Music royalty, multi-award winning singer-songwriter and producer, Lalah Hathaway readies the release of her eighth studio album, "VANTABLACK" and releases the official Single, "So In Love".

"‘So In Love’ was written by Philip Beaudreau and I a couple years ago with the intention to pitch it, but we loved it so much and decided to sit with it for a while. I’ve recently added it to my show and it’s one of the most beloved pieces that we perform," shares Lalah. ‘So In Love’ has such a vibe and like a lot of the work i do, it explores some of the more non traditional ideas about love, and self love. The video does this on a grand scale!", she adds.


Speaking of the music video, the stunning visuals of the "So In Love" music video will be making its global premiere on BET Soul and on Thursday, May 9th.

As we prepare for the release of VANTABLACK, music lovers abroad will be taken on a magical ride of this new Lalah Hathaway era, as she will be treating them with a new music every other week leading up to the release of VANTABLACK.

Lalah Hathaway comments, "VANTABLACK was always the name of the project. The word itself has so much weight on it, I was really unsure of how to approach the idea of writing the song. At the time, what I thought were conflicting perspectives, actually began to shape the concept of not only this album but also how I saw myself. I started reframing how I saw color, in terms of being the blackest I've ever been and even though I'm steeped in who I am, it doesn't exclude the other things that make up the sum of me. Similar to how all the music around me informs the black music that I create. So it's all a melting pot and this song truly exemplifies that."
