Black History Month Promotion (RHINO x LEIMERT PARK THREADS)
Honoring the importance and impact of legendary black artists on popular culture, Rhino Records launches its annual Black History Month celebration with a series of vinyl reissues, first-ever digital releases, initiatives, activations, and various collaborations.
...the celebration heats up on February 4 with a special new vinyl release of Curtis Mayfield’s The Very Best of Curtis Mayfield on skyblue vinyl, and continues with the arrival of Brandy’s The Best Of Brandy on vinyl for the first time ever and available in a fruit punch color and Ashford & Simpson’s So So Satisfied on spring green vinyl a week later on February 11. The month concludes with Slave/Steve Arrington’s Stellar Fungk: The Best of Slave Featuring Steve Arrington on ruby red vinyl on February 25.
Check out the confirmed release schedule for Black History Month below.
Rhino will also make an exclusive, limited edition tote celebrating black history month designed by Leimert Park Threads available as a gift with purchase to Black-owned record stores throughout the month. The number of Black-owned music retailers has shrunk in the past few decades from hundreds to a handful, and the label is focused on helping to reverse the trend.
This cross-generation celebration of Black musical excellence reaffirms the social, political, creative, and cultural impact of these artists. These timeless records and songs endure as essential.
