Overview

Already proven as a talented songwriter and platinum-selling artist, Marsha Ambrosius is meeting the next challenge in her already impressive musical career by reinventing herself as a solo artist with her J Records debut disc Late Nights & Early Mornings. The first single, "Hope She Cheats on You (With a Basketball Player)," is an anthem that women and men can relate to. Marsha explains, "It's the reality of a bad break up. We wanna be decent human beings and say the right thing, you know, 'I wish you well.' But this is 'Everything that could go wrong for him I want it to because my ego is bruised and I’m acting out.' " There’ve been many songs written about heartbreak, but Marsha’s approach to "Hope She Cheats on You" gets in your face rather than plays the victim.

Late Nights & Early Mornings is destined to be a classic, as Marsha offers a candid glimpse of her life and perspectives as a woman. Inspired by musical icons like Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and Prince, she concedes there is an overall male influence in her songwriting, such as the assertive sentiments heard on hits like "Say Yes." She explains, "My pen and my point of view has a certain aggression to it because I've listened to a lot of male influenced music, which I think makes me one of the most outspoken writers out here. Sometimes as a woman you don't wanna say what's on your mind for fear of being judged. But why wouldn't I say it like that if that's how I felt?" Musical peers recruited to contribute to the project include Alicia Keys, a reunion with Dre and Vidal (producers of "Say Yes"), Just Blaze and Focus.

While her success in the industry is already solidified, Marsha knows it's never easy to win over fans as a solo artist. Fortunately, she says, "It's like being thrown in the deep end. 'Okay I have to swim? Oh well.' I’ve taken that attitude and it's carried me forward." From the Label
