The "whip appeal" his child's mother had appears to have worn off for Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds at least in song.
The singer/songwriter/producer's "Baby's Mama," according to his publicist, teams Babyface with Snoop Dogg for a song about domestic turmoil. The club-friendly track, a production collaboration of Babyface and the Megahertz Music Group, will hit radio airwaves August 6.
Another new track, "What If," is a July 30 release Babyface's publicist described as being closer to his vintage pop love ballads. Both tracks will appear on Face 2 Face, scheduled for September 11 release.
Although Babyface usually produces the bulk of his material, he has delegated the beat-making somewhat on Face 2 Face. While he'll still check in behind the boards, Mike City, Tim and Bob, Heavy D and the Neptunes who produced the album's leadoff single, "There She Goes" lend a hand on various tracks.
While it remains undecided whether or not a "Baby's Mama" video will appear, the "What If" clip will begin filming in a couple of weeks. Babyface will promote the album on the road later this month and through August.
