VH1 Soul You Oughta Know artist and Prince protégé Liv Warfield is dropping her latest album The Unexpected today.

The album, which Liv describes as “alternative R&B soul”, also has the influence of Prince, who Liv spent the majority of her career touring with. In fact, Liv tells us, Prince served as the album’s executive producer and co-wrote the song “Your Show” as well as title track “The Unexpected“.

Liv shares: “Unexpected has definitely been my life’s journey. You know, I started as an athlete–a gymnast and ran track–and I didn’t think this was going to be my path so a lot of unexpected stuff came along my way even working with Prince, which is pretty amazing.”

Um, very amazing!
