India.Arie is hoping the successful reception for “Songversation,” her first album in four years, will open the door for the one that got away.

Prior to recording “Songversation” — which made a Top 10 debut on the Billboard 200 and the R&B Albums charts — Arie recorded another album called “Open Door,” on which she collaborated with Israeli artist Idan Raichel.

“I spent three years on that album,” Arie tells Billboard. “I funded most of it with my personal money, but I learned a big lesson about being able to let go. And I knew I had to let (‘Open Door’) go because we could not agree on the business part. If the business wasn’t in order, the album would have been a failure; I’m clear on that. So I was like, ‘I’m not doing this. I shelved it in late October of 2012, and on Nov. 1 I started working on ‘Songversation.'”
