Olivia is proud to announce her African tour. She is going to promote her new music and perform with Democratic Republic of Congo Super Star Fally Ipupa. Fally has a new single called Chaise Electrique, which features the talented Olivia. Olivia will accept an award from The Music Editors Corporation and an honorary title for being the first American recording artist to do a collaboration with a Congolese artist. Olivia is set to perform in Point Noire, Brazzaville, and Kinshasa (the birthplace of Fally Ipuna). Olivia is truly excited to share her music and meet with the Congolese people.
Not only is Olivia an accomplished singer/songwriter, but also composer, producer, arranger and much more. From the undeniable bedroom ready lead single, “Take It Off” to the romantic yearning of “Different Shit,” Olivia shows remarkable growth in her vocals as well as a songwriter. “Take It Off” is now available for download on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, Napster and more.
The blonde bombshell is proud of her achievements, emerging as the first person signed to J Records to being the first woman signed to G-Unit Records. While at G-Unit Olivia contributed vocals to 50 Cent‘s The Massacre, including the album’s number-one single, the Grammy nominated “Candy Shop.” Her first solo single released was “Twist It“, featuring Lloyd Banks, followed up by “So Sexy” and “Best Friend“, featuring 50 Cent in 2006. Around the same time, Olivia contributed vocals to Shaggy‘s single “Wild 2Nite“. With two movies, Peephole and Conspiracy X, also under her belt, Olivia is now eager to move past her G-Unit days and showcase her talents.
Olivia has collaborated with a powerhouse suite of producers and songwriters for her long awaited new album SHOW THE WORLD which include Missy Elliot, Ne-Yo, Bryan Michael Cox, Rockwilder, the incomparable Miss Betty Wright and many more. The end result is an indelible and finely crafted R&B album from a talented musician who loves what she does and maintains the rare relevance in an industry that often disposes of real music.
With the strategic direction of music moguls Rich Dollaz and Jason Wiley, spearheading Olivia’s career, success is inevitable. Rich is responsible for breaking records for new artists such as Ryan Leslie, Cassie, Cheri Dennis, Gorilla Zoe and Krys Ivory, while Jason has worked with such artists as Diddy, R. Kelly, Yung Joc, Cassie, Danity Kane, UGK, Anthony Hamilton, and Charlie Wilson to build their brand and strategic marketing campaigns.
“Signing Olivia is big for Dollaz Unlimited. She is a strong talented, beautiful woman and now it is time to roll up our sleeves and get to work. We have to show the world what I have come to know and that is O is one of the most talented artists out here, hands down,” says Rich Dollaz, Next Selection’s Senior Vice President of Radio Promotions and Mix Show Consultant with Interscope.
With an early 2010 release, SHOW THE WORLD is the second studio album from this groundbreaking and chart topping diva that will redefine the R&B landscape. She is preparing to spend the rest of 2009 and beginning of 2010 on the road, starting with a highly anticipated tour in Africa. There’s also a ten city tour with Grey Goose for BET Rising Icon and an overseas trip to Europe in the planning stages.
