Billboard chart-topping new artist Keyla Richardson much-awaited 8-track debut EP So Good is set to be released Friday, September 25, 2020 via Uncle G Records/Entertainment One.
Released November 1, 2019, the EP features lead single and title track, “So Good,” which landed at #1 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart and to date spends its 40th week on the chart. Her first No. 1 on Gospel Airplay, Richardson is the first artist in over two years to top Gospel Airplay with a debut single unaccompanied by any other act since Koryn Hawthorne’s “Won’t He Do It” in March 2018. She recently performed the hit song on the 2020 Stellar Awards, which aired on BET.
Richardson’s follow-up single “Prayer Will Change Things,” is currently going for adds on BDS and Mediabase gospel formats. The song is produced by Billboard’s Top 10 Gospel Producers Sean Keys, who’s known for his productions on No.1 artists Titus Showers, The Showers and two-time Stellar Award nominee Kim Person.
The Pensacola, Florida native initially gained widespread attention competing on season 9 of America’s Most Inspirational Singing Competition Show Sunday Best. She brought her gospel pipes to the table when she stepped on the stage to perform perform a soulful rendition of the hymn “I Love the Lord,” famously sung by Whitney Houston in the film “The Preacher’s Wife” – which in return landed her a top 4 finalist on the show.
