DJ Premier will assist Heather B in ending an 8-year album drought by executive-producing her new LP, Open Bar.
Heather B’s last project was 2002’s Eternal Affairs. With production from Pete Rock and DJ Premier, the album met with positive reviews despite not charting on Billboard.
Although Open Bar is just her third studio album, Heather B has been in the entertainment industry well over 10 years, receiving her first national exposure as a cast member of the original MTV Real World season in 1992.
In 1996, she partnered with Boogie Down Productions for her debut Takin’ Mine, which delivered two regional hits in All Glocks Down and If Headz Only Knew.
While Premier is handling the new project’s direction, two other confirmed producers are Pete Rock and Kenny Parker.
The latter is behind on the boards on Open Bar’s lead single The Game Don’t Stop, which Heather uses to make a statement on the importance of creative, well-executed Hip-Hop.
“The Game Don’t Stop answers all those questions that people have asked me and what I’ve questioned myself. What the end result of it all is, it doesn’t matter, Quality matters,” she declared.
