Grammy Nominated Canadian Songstress DEBORAH COX Releases Her Lead Single "Easy Way" Off Seventh Album
Posted By: LaMarr Blackmon on January 14, 2020

DEBORAH COX New Video "Easy Way"

As a Grammy-nominated recording artist, Deborah Cox has released
six critically-acclaimed career albums including her debut album,
Deborah Cox
One Wish
The Morning After
Destination Moon
(2007), and
The Promise
(2008). An established songstress, Cox has scaled the R&B and pop charts with six top
20 Billboard magazine R&B singles and an impressive thirteen No. 1
hits on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play Chart.
In addition to creating musical hits across the R&B, Pop, Jazz, and
Dance genres, Cox has established herself as a multi-talented artist
carving out her place within the worlds of Broadway, television, film,
and fashion.
The quadruple-threat artist returns to her musical roots with the release
of her new single
“Easy Way.”
An anthem for those who have lived the
ups and downs of a relationship but understand how those same challenges reinforce the reality that with any true, worthwhile, and long-lasting love, there is never an easy way. Written by hit-maker Rico Love and
produced by Rico and D’Town,
“Easy Way”
is catching fire among fans
on both digital and streaming sites.
Currently working on her seventh album, scheduled for release in 2020,
Cox says she is overwhelmed with the responses she has received on
the new single. “My purpose has always been to speak about commitment and unconditional love,” she explains. “My mission is not to define
it but rather to help one understand that self-love is where the journey
begins. I don’t think people consider that. I find that people fantasize
about love but don’t understand that if you want something to work, you
have to fight for it, and you have to fight for it daily. I believe that’s why
‘Easy Way’ resonates with so many people.”
Cox’s early career began while singing with Celine Dion. Cox was
discovered by the renowned music executive Clive Davis and was instantly signed to Arista Records. Known for her global hit “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here”
from her double-platinum sophomore album,
One Wish, the mega-hit single held the record for being the longest-running No.1 R&B single, at 14 consecutive weeks, and earned
her the Billboard Music Award nomination for R&B Single of the Year.
“Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here”
peaked at No. 2
for eight consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Her second single from the album,
“We Can’t Be Friends,”
also went to No. 1
on Billboard’s singles chart.
She has also performed with Rod Stewart, opera star Andrea Bocelli and
toured with mega-producer David Foster and Cyndi Lauper and Sarah
McLachlan. She was invited to perform for former First Lady Michelle
Obama and President Obama. In 2000, Cox collaborated with her friend
Whitney Houston to record the duet “Same Script, Different Cast” for
Greatest Hits
project. She is featured on the soundtrack of
Disney’s 2019 holiday movie, Noelle, on
“Gimme Some Christmas.”
Over the years, Cox has worked behind the scenes, recording music for
several film soundtracks, including
Akeelah and the Bee, Hotel Rwanda,
Kingdom Come, Money Talks, A Good Man is Hard To Find,
Perry’s Meet the Browns.
As an actress, Cox was last seen as Rachel Marron in the sold-out
national tour,
. She has continued her
work on screen and stage in several key roles, including the voice of
Whitney Houston in Lifetime’s biopic Whitney directed by Angela Bassett. Cox received rave reviews in media outlets, including the New York Times, The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, Newsday,the Boston Globe,ESSENCE and numerous others.Cox’s other stage works include leading roles in the 2016 Asolo Repertory Theatre musical production JOSEPHINE In 2013, she co-starred as Lucy in Frank Wildhorn and Steve Cuden’s Broadway musical
