April 9, 20008 – New York, N.Y. – Ted Lucas, CEO of Slip-N-Slide Records, South Florida’s #1 Independent label, has reached enormous victory this year by having his second artist in just a month, hip-hop superstar Trina, debut her fourth album STILL DA BADDEST (Slip-N-Slide Records/EMI) at #1 album on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Charts. Slip-N-Slide Records recently had the #1 album in the country with Rick Ross’ second album TRILLA.
Trina’s 4th album STILL DA BADDEST, exclusively distributed by EMI, debuts #1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop album charts, #1 on the Rap album chart, #3 on the R&B album chart and #6 on the Top album chart. The #1 chart debut was driven by Trina’s current singles, Single Again, and I Got A Thang for You featuring Keyshia Cole and her loyal fan base. The new single, I Got A Thang For you featuring Keyshia Cole is building at urban mainstream and Rhythmic Top 40 radio after recently being the #2 most added single. The video is featured on MySpace’s music page as well.
Says Ted Lucas, CEO of Slip-N-Slide Records, “Slip-N-Slide Records has had a phenomenal year with two #1 albums in just under a month. We are ready to continue our winning streak and make history with Plies, Qwote, Camar and many more Slip-N-Slide Records’ Artists!”
Says Ronn Werre, Executive Vice President of Global Sales, Licensing and Synchronization for EMI Music “EMI’s entire sales team congratulates Trina, Ted and Slip-N-Slide Records on a very impressive start. EMI is proud to be the distribution partner for this record as part of our effort to offer artists world class service.”
Trina, also known as “The Baddest Chick” and “The Diamond Princess” returns after a two year hiatus to reclaim her throne. With one Platinum and two Gold selling albums behind her, her fourth full length studio album STILL DA BADDEST proves to the skeptics that female emcees are not dead and that she is indeed a force to be reckoned with and is “Still Da Baddest” female in the game. Within the last few years Trina has seen her career reach new heights as a gorgeous, classy, sexy artist with a knack for business. Her latest project reunites Trina with her nemesis “Da Baddest”. Trina’s first smash hit Single Again is the official ladies anthem of 2008. Her second single, I Got a Thang for You features vocals with Keyshia Cole. Trina has returned and has clearly taken back the crown as the true queen of the south and is “Still Da Baddest”. STILL DA BADDEST includes a stellar list of recording artists such as: Plies, Qwote, Missy Elliot, Pitbull, Keyshia Cole and more. Some of the prominent producers on the project include Jim Jonsin and J-Roc.
