Stereotype also known as Stereotype: Steel & Velvet is singer B.Slade's 5th album. While still using the stage name Tonéx, the artist stated in an interview, that the name Stereotype is a metaphor for the dual nature in humanity (i.e. stereo, left and right).[1] The album was originally to be released on Verity/Jive Records on September 11, 2007. One single "Joy" (which was later put on Tonéx's Battery Records album Unspoken) had been serviced to radio under the auspices of Verity in May 2007.[2] Disagreements later led to a dissolution of the association between Tonéx and Zomba Label Group, shelving its major release.[3] As a result, in October the artist opted to share the music for a couple of weeks as a free, listen-only album on his MySpace page as a thank you to fans.[citation needed] A collector's edition of Stereotype was reworked with new tracks and finally released digitally under the B.Slade moniker on New Year's Day 2011.[4][5] Many of the songs from the 2007 version were later dispersed to other Tonéx albums.
