Bone Thugs-N-Harmony set to drop seventh album, Strength and Loyalty
For every wack hip-hop album, there’s always something blazin’ on offer. Enter new music from rap innovators Bone Thug-N-Harmony.
They may have been out of the limelight for a minute, but the group intend to remind fans why they were once so revered in hip-hop circles when they release their long-awaited seventh album, Strength and Loyalty, next month.
The album includes “I Tried” with Akon, “Little Love,” with Mariah Carey and “Order My Steps,” which pairs the group with Grammy award winning gospel artist Yolanda Adams, marking her first appearance on a hip-hop album.
In addition to Akon, Mariah Carey and Yolanda Adams, Strength and Loyalty features The Game, Twista, Bow Wow and an unreleased verse from affiliated Bone member Flesh-N-Bone, who is currently incarcerated.
Best known for mega-hits including “Thuggish Ruggish Bone,” “1st Of Tha Month,” and “Tha Crossroads,” Bone Thugs-N-Harmony has sold over 30 million albums to date.
“Man, I just feel fortunate to be able to put together something of this quality. We’ve been working on it for some time now, and everyone involved has been focused on making a classic. I think that’s what we’ve done,” says Layzie Bone of the new album.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony release their Interscope/Full Surface debut, Strength and Loyalty, on April 17.
