Former 112 member Q. Parker is positioning himself as a solo artist.
The R&B veteran recently did an interview with Examiner.com’s Robert Frezza to discuss details about his upcoming album “The MANual.” Unsurprisingly, Frezza asked Parker to speak about his relationship with other members of 112. Parker revealed that they are still on good terms.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
What’s the status of 112?
The status of 112 is that we decided in 2007 that we needed a break. After 15 years in the business, we decided to take a break and reunite a few years later. We started so young and we grew up together, but we needed to do our own individual thing. We have been in talks about a reunion tour and a possible new 112 album. I never closed the door on my group. Timing is key; so you will see a new 112 album when the time is right.
Your solo project, The Manual, is nearing completion.
We are looking for a summer release. I want to show the fans that the album is worth buying. I want to have at least two singles in the marketplace that is worth your 10 or $15. When you buy a CD
Who did you work with on this project?
Producer wise Chuck Harmony (Ne-Yo, Christette Michelle), Crystal Johnson (Brandy, Monica, Rihanna). I have collaborations with Faith Evans and another up and coming female artist called Crystal Nicole.
I didn’t want my first album to be full of features, though. I wanted to display myself. I wanted to hone in on Q Parker sound alone. I want people to get to know Q Parker since I already came from a group.
