Candice Glover fans won’t have to wait long for her debut album.
Glover, who won American Idol on May 16, will be releasing her debut album, Music Speaks, on July 16.
“I’ve built a fan base being on this show, and my fan base is interested in me now and they won’t see me every Wednesday and Thursday anymore to admire my singing, so I think it’s a good thing it’s coming out this summer,” Glover said during an interview this week.
“It’s crazy that I’m even talking about an album because last year I was working at a resort,” she added, laughing.
So what kind of music can fans expect from Glover? She says think Jazmine Sullivan.
“My album will most likely be R&B, soul and a little bit of jazz, almost like a Jazmine Sullivan vibe because I love her. She’s my favorite singer of all time,” Glover said.
Glover’s single,” I Am Beautiful,” serves as the first song off of Music Speaks. In its first week of release, the single sold more than 40,000 copies in the U.S. alone.
