Bow Wow to release new studio album

New Jack City II, the latest full-length studio album from U.S. hip-hop star Bow Wow, is slated for release this month, Columbia Records said.

The new CD, which is set to drop March 31, will be Bow Wow's first solo album since 2006's The Price of Fame and his first full-length album release since Face Off, the artist's 2007 collaboration with Omarion.

Executive produced by Michael T. Mauldin and Bow Wow, New Jack City II features production and other musical contributions from Jermaine Dupri, T-Pain, Ron Browz, T.I., Nelly and Trey Songz.

Bow Wow, 22, is currently in the midst of a promotional tour of more than 25 U.S. cities with a final stop scheduled in Atlanta, for the Boys and Girls Club of America National Keystone Conference April 2, where he will perform and speak to more than 1,500 Boys and Girls Club of America members from across the United States, Columbia Records said.
