Shanachie Entertainment will release Anthony David’s highly anticipated label debut, The Powerful Now on August 26, 2016. The album contains the single, “Beautiful Problem”. The track “represents life and the trials you can go through that ultimately make you better and stronger. It’s really open to interpretation for people to relate to in several ways” states Anthony. ThePowerful Now is Anthony’s first release since Love Out Loud (2012). ThePowerful Now is very much about what the name implies, Now! Anthony said, “”The PowerFUL Now is about the NOW being the most important moment at all times. I write every album as if it could be my last, so I don’t hold back on any feeling or idea.” During the four years since his last release, Anthony realized he would find himself in conversation talking about the past or what [he] wanted in the future.
As he began working on the album he realized that the Now was important so he said, “Fuck it; we did all that, so let’s make Now. Let’s make this thing, great, Now.” With ThePowerful Now set to be released Anthony spoke with us in promotion of the album. Anthony spoke about how R&B today is not niche, but has just as much to offer as every other genre, the influence of Afrobeats on his music/content and working with Oprah on the OWN hit show Greenleaf.
