Anthony Hamilton is out with the music video to his new single ‘Woo’, off the Charlotte, North Carolina R&B singer’s fifth studio album ‘Back to Love’, out now on RCA Records.
Hamilton explains his inspiration for the album title: “We live our life, day to day, month to month, year to year, doing so much that we forget the love, the people around us, the things around us, and just life itself. I want to remind people that it’s okay to be in love with yourself and the loved ones in your life.”

Anthony Hamilton spoke with AL.com about touring with Jill Scott and collaborating on her new album’s first single, ‘So in Love’. “Working with Jill is great. We both give it our all. We have a great vibe on ‘So In Love’,” Hamilton said. “I, along with my producing partner, Kelvin Wooten, both thought of her when we created ‘So In Love’. Kelvin’s actually from Huntsville, Alabama – he’s my musical soulmate and can create anything. It turned out to be a great love song and is still number one after 20 weeks.”
