Maxwell Announces 35-Date Summer Soulstice Tour

By Annie Reuter

Maxwell will be hitting the road this summer for his Summer Soulstice Tour, the singer announced today (April 21).

The 40-year-old will kick off a North American tour on June 14 in Milwaukee, Wisc., and continue through Aug. 17 in Albuquerque, N.M.

Maxwell is featured on Jennifer Lopez‘s upcoming June 17 release, On the 6. Lopez spoke with Rap-Up about the duet, “I Wanna Love” and why she wanted him to be on the track.

“It’s a ballad, kind of a mid-tempoey ballad,” she said. “It’s just one of those really beautiful songs. I recorded it by myself first and I was like, ‘Ugh. You know who would be so beautiful on this record? Maxwell.’ And Maxwell and I have known each other forever. Almost every album, we say we gotta do something. You have to wait for the right song and I finally got up the nerve to send it to him and said, ‘You’re gonna like this one.’ I sent it to him, he loved it, and he was like, ‘OK. I’m gonna put my thing on it.’ I’m really excited about it.”

There’s still no word on new Maxwell music, of course. After releasing 2009’s BLACKsummers’night, the R&B artist was supposed to drop a follow-up in 2012. The year came and went without such a release, and there has been little word on new material since.
