 The mom-of-two took to Instagram to share the news with her loyal following. She spoke to the camera to say: "I've been working on this project for close to three years now. I wasn’t sure I was going to release it, but I am. The album is called Chemistry.

"I was trying to find a word, it might be one of the songs on the album, but I was trying to find a word that really described the whole thing. I didn't want everybody to think I was just coming out with some 'I'm angry,' 'I'm sad' — just one or two emotions. This album is definitely the arc of an entire relationship."

She added: "That whole relationship shouldn’t be brought down to one thing. There’s the good, the bad and the ugly kind of thing going on. Chemistry can be a really amazing, sexy, cool, fun thing, but it can also be very bad for you. So that’s why I named it Chemistry, I thought it was the perfect title to describe the entire album."

Her followers were quick to react, with one writing: "I really like the title. And as a fellow divorced woman I understand exactly what you mean by it. Can’t wait to hear it. Your music has been healing for me. Love you," and another adding: "CANNOT WAIT FOR CHEMISTRY!"
