Carl Thomas Hints At New Music on Instagram
If you've been missing the smooth sounds of R&B artist Carl Thomas you may not have to wait much longer for its return. The singer recently hinted new music was on the way and shared the "evidence" on Instagram.
Though '90s R&B crooner, Thomas, has recently rejoined his former Bad Boy Entertainment label mates for The Reunion Tour, it seems he could be planning a solo comeback of his own.
The "Summer Rain" singer took to Instagram to share an inside look at what he's been up to lately and from the looks of it, or the "evidence" posted, he's been laying down vocals in the studio and readying some new material.
"Ok y'all here's the Evidence... So hang on and I'm gon make it Real Comfortable up in Here!!!!," captioned the 45-year-old.
Thomas caught the attention of Bad Boy founder Sean "Puffy" Combs during the late '90s and signed a recording contract with his label. He released two albums under Bad Boy, his 2000 debut album Emotional and his 2004 sophomore album Let's Talk About It, both distributed under Universal, but ultimately walked away from his deal with Combs to pursue other endeavors.
Despite what people may believe, Thomas' decision to part ways from Combs and Bad Boy had nothing to do with bad business practices or any personal matters. As he put it in his 2011 Centric interview, he simply wanted to add a little more flavor or creative spice, like "hot sauce," to his projects.
"I didn't have a problem working with Puff," explained Thomas. "The problems that we had were never business [or] personal problems. They were always creative run-ins and those are not necessarily negative. Harmony creates a good product, but nothing creates a better product than fiction in my opinion. I like a little hot sauce on my greens."
After a brief stint with Bungalo Records, releasing only one album, Thomas eventually landed at Verve Music Group, his current music home, to release his last studio album Conquer in 2011.
No word as of yet on who Thomas has already worked with, or plans to work with on the new music but, he did show love to producer Troy Taylor on Instagram crediting him for his current knowledge of the music business and where he is in his career. Could that put Taylor on the list as a possible producer? We'll have to wait and see.
I was a Teenager and my Brother Troy Taylor introduced me to the Music Business and my life has never been the Same. Thanks T Roy Taylor for leading me to it all... A photo posted by Carl Thomas (@carl_thomas) on Mar 24, 2016 at 9:59am PDT
