ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE MILLENIUM'S FIRST OPENLY GAY, BLACK MALE POP ARTIST
"ASS" The First Single From Anthony Antoine's Anticipated CD

Official Release October 19th

"I make music for "the kids," especially gay children who scream for music representative of our lives and lifestyle. My new single "ASS" is a passionate, unapologetic celebration of being a gay male and an independent artist with the freedom to record songs for and about a neglected audience in popular music. "The kids" have historically supported a music industry afraid of supporting us, denying parallel opportunities for openly gay artists while explicitly and not always tastefully exploring all aspects of heterosexuality and heterosexual sex. It's a "don't ask, don't tell" policy in a music industry full of closeted gays and lesbians oppressed by an untested theory of CD buying audiences not being ready.
My music challenges this theory. Ready or not, here I come!"
-Anthony Antoine

ATLANTA (Sept. 15, 2004) - "ASS The Single & Remixes" is the first single from Anthony Antoine's long awaited first full-length effort "Closets On Fire" due out later this year. In conjunction with In The Life Atlanta's (ITLA) "Black Gay Pride" weekend, attendees got their first taste of "ASS" after a rare Anthony Antoine performance kicking off the annual celebration. A single packed with "musical activism," Anthony Antoine sings "...and for conservative politicians who believe abstinence is the only way, this is for your momma who still believes you're straight and not gay" with a flirtatious melody borrowed from Prince's "Lady Cab Driver" ending "The Booty Remix" of "ASS." Not neglecting his supportive and equally hungry white gay audience, he remixes "ASS" with the spirit of R. Kelly, changing lyrics and melody for what ultimately are completely new songs called remixes. This spirit is most apparent in the "Whiteboi-Got-ASS" mix for the techno/club music lovers.

Independently produced, "ASS The Single & Remixes" has been described as "having some of the steamiest pillow talk since Prince's "Do Me Baby," expressed in the Labor Day issue of Clikque Magazine in which Anthony Antoine is featured. Arguably "ASS" is Anthony Antoine's most promising effort in a career in music that spans well over a ten years, taking us from London to now Atlanta based. The CD's highlights include a Ludacris influenced hip-hop flow over "DONTUEVA," Antoine's contribution to an undeniably growing and relevant gay hip-hop movement, a song about someone telling Anthony not to be openly gay in his music. Anthony Antoine responds with wrath. The single also moves to what he describes as "HIV prevention at its best" with "BARE" that communicates a feeling of being empowered to make a decision of one night of "...sex with no fear." Certainly not wanting to be misunderstood for advocating irresponsibility, Antoine directs the listener to the lyrics, "...the most accountable of decisions informed by all knowing and still saying yes." The same spirit, Anthony muses, that is often diminished in HIV prevention and would allow many a parallel feeling of empowerment to make the ultimate decision of regularly using condoms during sex. It's revolutionary!!

"The machine of the music business will eventually catch the gold mind in me and other openly gay artists. I plan to pick up where Sylvester left off, in meetings with major labels, pushing them to finally promote an openly gay artist with regard for our having supported the industry with our artistry, loyalty and dollars since the music industry's beginning," Anthony explains with passion. "There's not a music business to exist without our contributions."

"ASS The Single & Remixes" is produced by Anthony's longtime friend and producer Jimmy George of Wave Motion Sound Recording Studio www.geocities.com/thewav1.geo and parades steamy cover pictures photographed by fellow Adodi Muse (www.adodimuse.com) performance poet and business partner Malik ML Williams of Brotha Love Images www.brothaloveimages.com. The CD package was designed by www.emdesignsgroup.com and the entire project executive produced by Michael Smith.

"Ass" is a steamy tale about boy meets boy with greater booty that features some of the hottest pillow talk since Prince's "Do Me Baby."

Bootylishus
One of my favorite singles from Anthony, hot, steamy and in your face. His live performance during our Black Pride celebration in Nashville was historic and full of N R G!

LoveSlide

Saucy, catchy, hip-hoppy, poppy, punchy, flirty, squirty ... worth hearing
"Ass" protrudes provocatively into the consciousness, a bold assertion of man-to-man desire and sexual expression. In the various versions, we get to hear the influence of Prince (Lady Cab Driver), Destiny's Child (Bootylicious), Madonna (Justify My Love) and others who have celebrated the body as a vehicle for giving and receiving pleasure. The two middle tracks give a glimpse into the artist's more sensitive and angry sides ... check this cd out!

Dereck

HOT, SEXY, POLISHED!
ASS is HOT, SEXY, and POLISHED is still not enough to discribe this project. It's sensual. provocative, entertaining and still it's musical. The other tacks are just as intoxicating as ASS and as much efort that must have gone into this project the artist made sure that the songs came across effortless and perfect!

Kings Garden/New Generation Enterprise

What Can I say
The song is for a long trip.
A hard ride on a brother's back side and the enjoyment of a life time.

Danceable & nasssty...so delicious!
The only thing that could've made this CD hotter is an ASS instrumental complete with the sex noises.

Ia m really feeling the songs I heard so far from the upcoming CD, and from what am I am hearing it hads platinum plus sells written all over. We need a video for the song, ASS.

Da Kidney Scrapa of DC

REAL, REAL, REAL, oh and It's HOT
I def. love the way Anthony talks about the power of ass. He talks about ass like our straight counterparts talk about p_ssy. Finally, someone has taken the in-your-face approach to gay sex and put a spin on it to say "we have a right to talk about our sex just as striaght men have a right to talk about heterosexual sex." This man needs to be commended. He DEF get my props for his artistic integrity and REALNESS. BUY THIS CD.

One of the Premier Voices in R&B today, Glad to share the stage with him!!!
Anthony Antoine is one of the premier voices in R&B today. I am priviledged to be able to say that we share the stage as fellow black, gay R&B singers. The best thing about Anthony Antoine is everything!!! His sex appeal , his raw honesty, and his ability to not pander to his audience makes him a great example for all up and coming singers whom are courageous enough to live their truth. Definitely pick up this album... It is history in the making, baby!!! Keep blazing a trail, Basil Hennely www.basilhennely.com
