CeCe Peniston looking forward to comeback

It’s been 12 years since Cece Peniston released an album, but that will change this year when she comes out with a new CD––and a new attitude.

It’s been 12 years since Cece Peniston released an album, but that will change this year when she comes out with a new CD––and a new attitude.

These days the sultry R&B artist is putting the finishing touches on her upcoming album, "Cece," which features "Runaway," a duet with singer and producer Montell Jordan.

“I am so excited about this album. There are songs for young and older folks,” Peniston told the Defender. “Once I reach an agreement and sign with a record company, the album will drop.”

Peniston was signed under the A&M Record label when she put out her 1991 debut album "Finally," which sold over three million copies. Two years later, she released her second album, "Thought Ya Knew," followed in 1996 by her last solo album, "I’m Movin On."

While it’s been over a decade since she released an album, Peniston has been keeping busy singing duets with various artists. She performed "Shame Shame Shame" with the Soul Shakers in 2007 and "Deeper Love" with David Longoria in 2005.

One thing she did different with her upcoming album: she wrote more songs.

“I was blessed to work with some very talented people on this album, and I also had the opportunity to write more so that was cool,” she said.

She would love to follow up the Cece album with a tour but said that’s a long way off.

“Let’s see how well the album does first before we talk tour dates,” she said. “Going on tour allows me to dance on stage, something I love to do.”

The 39-year-old singer admitted that she cannot watch enough of the "Dancing With The Stars" TV show, and she especially likes salsa music.
