NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 28, 2007) - "IN AND OUT OF LOVE," the extraordinary debut album from Bad Boy recording artist Cheri Dennis, is quickly shaping up as one of the year's most exciting success stories. Released exclusively last week on the iTunes Store (www.itunes.com) -- three months before its physical release on February 26, 2008 -- the collection instantly reached the top 10 on iTunes' "Top R&B/Soul Albums" sales chart. "IN AND OUT OF LOVE" marks the first-ever major label R&B album to receive a three-month digital exclusive release via iTunes.

iTunes' exclusive release of "IN AND OUT OF LOVE" was heralded by the selection of the Rodney Jerkins-produced album track, "Remind You," as the iTunes Store's "Single of the Week." The track has already proven a major hit, with nearly a quarter of a million free downloads thus far. In addition, in a first-of-its-kind promotion, the full-length album tracks are featured in all the music player spots on the homepage of www.imeem.com, the fastest-growing social networking site on the internet.

Cheri is currently out on national promotional tour to support her album release, with a whirlwind of radio and press appearances scheduled through December. Among the highlights will be an exclusive live performance at Chicago's Apple Store (679 N. Michigan Ave.) on Thursday, November 29th at 2 pm.

In addition to "Remind You," the eagerly anticipated "IN AND OUT OF LOVE" features Dennis' debut hit single, "I Love You," as well as the upcoming new jam, "Portrait of Love (Feat. Yung Joc and Gorilla Zoe)." The track -- produced by Soul Diggaz (Beyoncé, Mary J Blige, Britney Spears) -- will impact at multi-format radio outlets nationwide on December 3rd. The "Portrait of Love" companion video -- directed by Petro (Rufus Wainwright, Kelly Clarkson) -- is currently slated to premiere on AOL Music (www.music.aol.com) on November 28th, followed by prominent placement on the iTunes Store for the week of December 4th.

Close to two years in the making, "IN AND OUT OF LOVE" sees Cheri Dennis revealing herself to be much more than just a powerhouse vocalist. The singer co-wrote many of the album's songs, working in collaboration with some top studio superstars, including Timbaland (Justin Timberlake, M.I.A., Kanye West), Mario Winans (Diddy, Whitney Houston, The Notorious B.I.G.), and others.
