The artwork and tracklisting are enclosed. About the release, Sammie says, “Coming Of Age was inspired by every woman I’ve ever been in love with. My Mother told me every relationship, fling and one-night stand even, will have an effect on the man I ultimately become. Through trial and error I’ve learned many lessons, which sculpted me into the man I am today.” He went on to say, “I wanted to be raw, un-cut, unfiltered and honest about the ups and downs in my love life. COA is me; sharing all of me.”
Next month, Sammie joins R&B veteran Tank on “The Savage Tour.” Check out the full itinerary below.
At just 12-years-old Sammie‘s debut single “I Like It” propelled him into superstardom. The single was included on his 2000 debut album From The Bottom To the Top and peaked in the Top 10 on the Billboard R&B Chart. His second studio album Sammie included the hit singles “You Should Be My Girl” featuring Sean Paul of YoungBloodz, and “Come With Me.” Along the way, Sammie was featured on Soulja Boy‘s Billboard Top 5 single “Kiss Me Thru the Phone” and co-wrote Tank‘s “Next Breath.” In 2016, Sammie released the 6-track EP, I’m Him, after a snippet of the title track went viral garnering over 2 million streams on Spotify.
Now, Coming Of Age sees Sammie confidently evolve into the artist he has worked toward becoming over the last 18 years.
