Elliott Yamin (American Idol, season 5) has just launched his first official website, where fans can look at exclusive pictures, chat in the official forum, purchase $25 T-shirts, and await news like the title of his sophomore album (which drops May 5) and the name of its first single (which should be released to radio sometime this month).
Yamin’s self-titled 2007 debut was the highest independent debut by a new artist in Billboard history, and went gold in the US and Japan thanks to the hit single “Wait For You.” Yamin recently told EW that his sophomore album will be “a little more contemporary R&B-ish.” It boasts producers Jermaine Dupri, Stargate, and Josh Abraham. Who’s psyched?
