Muni Long (formerly known as Priscilla Renea) has announced her debut LP, Public Displays of Affection: The Album. The platinum-selling singer and songwriter confirmed the news on Instagram on Monday (Sept. 12) afternoon.
The album is set to release Sept. 23 via her imprint Supergiant Records in partnership with Def Jam Recordings. The record compiles songs from her two previous EPs, Public Displays of Affection and Public Displays of Affection Too, along with five additional tracks.
The first set, released in November 2021, featured the smash hit “Hrs and Hrs,” which earned her breakthrough success and reached No. 1 on urban radio, a first for Long. She collaborated with Ann Marie for “No R&B,” the aggressive opening track.
The follow-up EP, issued on July 1, included “Another” and “Baby Boo,” featuring rising rapper Saweetie. The former tune entered the top ten of urban radio in June.
“I’ve spent so many hours crafting this, putting my heart and soul into each and every track. I want to give you all more of what you love and deserve. These songs, these stories, and these experiences are fueled by love and affection; that of which I have for all of you,” Long shared.
Long released a full-length album as Renea in 2018 titled Coloured. Her country-inspired album was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. She spoke candidly to Rated R&B about Coloured in a 2018 profile.
Additionally, she talked about her music career and how she felt past collaborators and executives had done her. “Everybody counted me out and everybody left me for dead,” she expressed.
Earlier this month, Long appeared on John Legend’s new album LEGEND, released via Republic Records. Their duet, “Honey,” entered the top ten of Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart, marking her second overall.
