Although this is the first album Wright has released in almost ten years, she has spent time writing, singing back up, arranging, and producing songs for several artists including Keyshia Cole, Diddy, Joss Stone, Kelly Clarkson, and Lil Wayne. She teamed up with The Roots for several studio sessions to bring forth this project. All songs were either written or co-written by Wright herself.
The album was released on November 15, 2011 by S-Curve Records. It has received generally positive reviews by critics with Metascore giving it a 73 out of 100. It was listed as #6 on Associated Press's best albums of 2011.
