The first time I heard Amber Sevyn Streeter, I was lost for words. Known as an in your face blogger you can imagine how few times this happens to me in life. Formerly a member of one of the hottest girl groups that never was, Sevyn is back on the scene ready to claim her throne for the mocha skinned ladies in the game. Nobody wants to address this issue, but the music industry tends to pay less attention to anything darker. In fact, in my opinion, the less “European” you look as a woman the less record companies find your marketability.
Think I’m lying? Just take a glance a today’s female acts. I can’t think of one outside of Kelly Rowland who the industry pays attention to and consumers report
However eager to get her foot in the door and dispel the aforementioned stereotypes, Sevyn –by way of Chris Brown– is about t get a second crack at the whip with a brand new record label on Atlantic. Her new single “I Like It” is an uptempo track offering up an empowering woman’s anthem on love and sticking it out in relationships.
Positive message, followed by a positive image how can one go wrong? Whether it’s a top 10 charter is another blog for another day, but I will say that its a very safe promotional single that’ll keep the haters at bay. Plus you know much a sucker I am for power vocals.
Interested in seeing how amazing Sevyn is? Well she will be here this Thursday, February 28th at Vanquish. Y’all know I’m not big on giving clubs free promo. But in Sevyn’s case I figured I’d make an exception. And if you need a lilttle sneak preview. Check her and former RichGirl members Brave, Lyndriette and Audra sing “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”
Um.. Tina u better not mess up this girls opportunity. I definitely was not happy with your lack of attention to RichGirl Yea, I said it!
