Maxwell Covers June 15th 2009 Jet Magazine

Maxwell // June 15th 2009 Jet Magazine

R&B singer Maxwell is back on the scene, but not without worries. It’s been almost 8 years since he released his last album, Now, which reached #1 in both the U.S. and the U.K, and when the time came to put out new music, he knew his absence to the scene for nearly a decade would be a gamble. And it definitely had folks talking and making their own speculations. But the 36-year-old Brooklyn native says he didn’t really pay attention to those crazy rumors:

“I don’t really put power into that. It’s just what people do and there’s no way I can control that. I can’t stand up at every moment and say ‘this true and this is not.’ There aren’t that many hours in the day to do that.”

His Jet Magazine cover story is on stands now and his upcoming album, BLACKsummers’night is set for a July 7th release. Peep the entire story on page 36 of the June 15th 2009 edition of Jet Magazine! And if you haven’t checked out his latest music video for the new album’s debut single, Pretty Wings, you can do so here.
