The Chronicles of TK is the debut album from Tynisha Keli originally titled, "Even If It Takes Forever". The album features the singles, "I Wish You Loved Me" and "Shatter'd". It also debuted at number twelve on the Japanese Albums Chart with sales of over 10,192 copies in the first week.[3]

Background[edit]

Keli delivers her story with uplifting optimism, setting vignettes from her life, both happy and sad, to an irresistible backdrop of urban-influenced rhythmic groove and touching R&B balladry crafted by leading songwriters and producers Kara DioGuardi and J.R. Rotem,[4] who between them have worked with such artists as P!nk, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, Ashlee Simpson, and Ashley Tisdale.

The recording sessions of "Chronicle" spawned additional contributions from Soulshock & Karlin: Carsten Schack and Kenneth Karlin ("Lonely Days"), James Poyser ("There Goes My Baby"),[5] Mario Barrett ("The Greatest Performer"), Shaffer "Ne-Yo" Smith ("Stay or Go") and The Jam: Michael Mani & Jordan Omley ("My Everything"),[6] but none of the tracks made it to the final cut.[7][8][9][10]

  • "I Wish You Loved Me" (2007), Warner Bros. Records
