[ [http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/movies/la-et-raven6mar06,0,6781675.story CEO Raven-Symoné, chief entertainment officer - Los Angeles Times ] ] The album was released on April 29, 2008 in the United States. It was her last album released by Hollywood Records.

Production history

On April 19, 2007, singer Mario was interviewed by "Billboard" magazine and he stated that he and his production team, Knightwritaz, had recently worked with Raven-Symoné. [ [http://billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003573905 Mario Interview] ] She also worked with producers such as The Clutch, Sean Garrett, Kwamé, Eric Hudson, The J.A.M., and T. Dabney. Sean Garrett is featured on two songs on the album, "What Are You Gonna Do?" and "Stupid".

Raven-Symoné told Blackfilm.com, "Raven-Symoné" is a party album. There are only 2 slow songs, but it's really energetic. It's something you can put on when you are cleaning the house or you are about to come out to a party, or you need to wake up to go to school. It will be fun to perform. I go on tour soon."

Promotion and commercial performance

In the United States, accompanied by the single "Double Dutch Bus" (a promo single from Raven-Symoné's film "College Road Trip"), the album debuted on the "Billboard" 200 at number 159, selling 4,400 copies in its first week.http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003841425] Raven-Symoné expressed disappointment in the low sales to Billboard.com, saying, "No one really dropped the ball. I just think it didn't get enough publicity so people would know it's coming out."

A concert tour, The Pajama Party Tour, to promote the album was scheduled to begin in spring 2008; AEG Live cancelled the tour, citing "unforeseen circumstances". [http://edition.cnn.com/2008/SHOWBIZ/Music/05/15/music.raven.symone.ap/ Raven-Symone: 'I'm not a little kid anymore' - CNN.com ] ] In July 2008, Raven-Symoné performed songs on the album as part of the Radio Disney Summer Concert Series.
