eric benet ('the one' cover shot)*Eric Benet admits he’s really outdone himself with the latest album, “The One.”

In an interview with Singersroom, the R&B veteran bragged about the new project, which will drop June 5.

“I called the album ‘The One’ because I’ve been dreaming, and working towards this goal, pen ultimately, to have my own record label, and then to release my own stuff on that label,” he said. “And this is the one; the one I’ve been dreaming about my whole career and working towards. I’m definitely at the top of my game vocally. And those fans, or kinda fans out there that have maybe liked an Eric Benet song or two but never really purchased an entire album, this is the one they gotta get. If I do say so myself, it’s just a brilliant body of work. It’s quite a statement, and I’m proud that this is my first independent statement creatively.”

He also commented that’s he’s really on the up and up in his career as he’s living the dream with a new label called Jordan House Records.
