[New Music Tuesday] SYLEENA JOHNSON Keeps Soul Alive w/ CHAPTER 6: Couples Therapy

Yes, this R&B Diva is back and better than ever! There’s something distinctively rich about Syleena Johnson’s voice. You can tell, this thing she does with these notes are truly God’s gift. I had a chance to chat with the soul crooner last month for her private listening party, held in LA and was blown away by the passionate conviction of

CHAPTER 6: Couples Therapy.

Chapter 6: Couples Therapy

Stemming from communication battles in her own marriage, Syleena took to the pen and pad to express the hardships and rewards of being in a committed relationship.

“My husband and I recently realized we have some communication issues…so we took to therapy last year around September, and then just recently they asked us to do Marriage Bootcamp on WeTV, so we just filmed that which was amazing for our marriage.” via AllHipHop.com. 

On the album, you’ll find a track called ‘Silence’, which is a relationship record. It’s a plea from a woman ‘s perspective, asking how to salvage it? With lyrics beginning the track…“There’s so much noise in this silence…” Mirroring the pain in the relationship.

in, “Perfectly Worthless”, Syleena takes on a character who contemplates murder and suicide. Here the couple had been together since college.  She got pregnant and gave birth to a still born . The couple’s relationship struggled because of the devastation. They decide to go see a therapist and the unthinkable happens…The husband ends up cheating with the therapist and has a baby with her…You can see the story unfold in the video above.  “It was real Kettle One, straight vodka. I really wanted to be in this character.”, says Syleena.

Don’t get me wrong now, Chapter 6: Couples Therapy has some sexy, sultry bangas too. How else do you think you’re going to keep that bond growing strong 🙂

“…I like little nasty songs…it comes from growing up with Prince.” The diva mentions during the right before the playback…OKAAAY!

With song like “My Love”and “Boom”, this is just in time for booed up season!!!

+“No Beginners”, featuring Willie Taylor from Day 26, was originally written for the King of Soul R. Kelly. And, trust when I say, the track isn’t missing him at all.  NO SHADE,  but Syleena had to respectfully decline, using the Sarah Palin “Thanks but no thanks”, when referring to The Astronauts deal. Stating, “Every single I had was his (Robert Kelly’s). Possibly even overshadowed by his celebrity. But, Syleena expressed that she will always love them, (R. Kelly/Wayne Williams). “However, we’re all growing and not necessarily in the same direction, nor needed for our projects to do well. “

Syleena posts me portraying one of my favorite songs from Chapter 6 on her Instagram..."MY LOVE"

I can’t scream it anymore…YOU HAVE TO GET THIS ALBUM NOW!!! Soul music lovers have been begging for a record like this, and now we have it! I admire Syleena’s tenacity and determination to do it on her own terms! For those of you, who didn’t know…CHAPTER 6: Couples Therapy isn’t just her 11th release, it’s her 1st Soundtrack to the MOVIE…Titled “Couples Therapy”!!! Yes indeed she’s a BOSS!!!

Are You TOO FAT for FAME??? Kelly Price Casts NEW Reality TV Series!

Lil Mo, Kelly Price, Chanté Moore, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson

I can’t lie…I have no real BIG GIRL or FAT struggle, simply because I have done nothing to try to lose weight over the years. Now, with that said, it doesn’t mean I haven’t been ridiculed by others about my size…

Yes, I’ve been told, “I’m too fat for fame!“, what hurt the most was, it came from family and friends majority of the time. Yes, I have a background in Communications and Journalism, but that wasn’t all that I wanted to do. I am a POET first and foremost, but I’m also a Singer and a great Songwriter.

Now, that I’m getting older and putting efforts into living a better life and becoming a better me, I’ve asked myself hard questions, like, “Why didn’t I take my singing career to the next level?”, “What kept me from going to those auditions?”

And, it’s clear, something in me must’ve believe them, and eventually I found it easier promoting others, than myself.  It’s that simple.

Well, I had the chance of meeting Kelly Price and her husband, when Syleena Johnson debuted at RnB Live Hollywood in November of 2012. I’m talking the whole camp is cool, chic, opinionated and outright sexy!!!

Trying to stay in my lane, didn’t want my groupie to jump out  :), but I was in awe with the star power I had around me. It’s incredible w/ the new TV ONE R&B Divas L.A. hit, Kelly’s still finding time to give back w/ TOO FAT FOR FAMEWatch here to hear her story…

Although, I would luv to spill the details, I would rather you tune in and cop her new album (dropping 6/25) to find out, what made her take a pause for the cause at what some thought was the height of her career.

LOSE to WIN: A Battle I Know Too Well! Fantasia Performs Live on American Idol!

Fantasia Performs New Hit Single "Lose to Win" on American Idol.
Fantasia Performs New Hit Single “Lose to Win” on American Idol.

Watching Fantasia stand in the very spot she started from, riddled with emotion, I started crying uncontrollable tears. See I know first hand what it’s like to lose, with no winning in sight. For me, this performance was a holy ghost takeover. With bitter sweet chills, bottom lip trembles, magnified over the airways healing so many young girls who may have never experience this kind of heartbreak, but now have hope that they can survive one. Plus, healing the mature woman as well, who knows exactly the name of the man who these lyrics apply to. Who she lost herself to. Who she’s fighting to take her power back from, now in this very moment.

Young Aretha I call her (Fantasia), still so very vulnerable, humble and approachable.  I only wish I could’ve heard from you last night. I can see the blessed energy running through you, and I understand why you couldn’t say anything after that spiritual fight. I’m sure you’ve performed that song countless times. On TV Shows globally, but I think maybe because you were full circle, standing on the stage that launch your dynamic career, GOD took over and you left everything on the stage.

You’ve had an amazing walk in life. Now you have a wonderful and joyful journey ahead of you. Unbeknownst, you’re taking me with you. You truly undressed this pretty picture I created, and reminded me I still have some healing to do. I sincerely thank you for that. I will continue to pray for your greatness, your peace, to accompany you even whenever you feel the pressures of mass media and unforgivable press. The industry is brutal, but what you have surpasses all things superficial. I see the GOD in you. Let your light shine girlfriend!!!

Many Blessings!

OUT FROM THE SHADOWS OF THE BRAXTON NAME, TAMAR GETS HER LIFE w/ “LOVE and WAR” DEBUT!

Imagine getting YOUR voice heard in a family of six…Fighting for your own identity, especially when you’re the baby. Not to add, your sister is none other than Toni Braxton! See, singing background for her sister and Lady Gaga wasn’t enough for HER…SHE (Tamar), needed to feed that vocal beast inside of her, clawing to get out, every time she saw a mic and a stage setup!

Known for slogans like, “Get Your Life” and ending every sarcastic remark w/ a .com, .org, .net, made famous on WEtv Channel’s Braxton Family Values…Tamar has proven w/ her new release, that hard word, tenacity, and much much attitude, does pay off!!!

Now, a recent member of the Interscope/Streamline family, “Love and War”, was released on December 6, 2012 and has peaked on iTunes at #1, in 24 hours! You can catch Tamar co-hosting w/ T.I’s wife, Tiny on her upcoming talk show (Tiny’s Tonight),  slated to be released later this month on VH1! And, I am almost positive we’ll see her in a second season of Tamar & Vince on the WEtv Network!

I am so sincerely happy for her. I have been a fan since her first recording debut, Tamar…She reminds me of why it’s so important to NEVER silence your voice. Keep up the DIVA Domination, it’s your time mama! #YOUBETTAWORK
