Her journey to the top may seem
like it happened overnight for her but in truth it's taken Tweet
the better part of 10 years to get ot the podium. Having come from
a background in gospel music which both her parents made their mark
in, she did her singing in the church and was signed to a production
deal that went basically nowhere and was at her wit's end not knowing
what to do next.
It was at this point in time
that she recieved a call from an old friend - Missy
Elliott who met each other back when they were inspirating
performers who wanted her to sing background vocals for her then new
album .....So Addictive. Missy
was so taken by her singing that she took her to visit Elektra head
Sylvia Rhone. "It was all
like a dream, really," says Tweet. "Especially when you
consider where my head was at. I guess in a way, the music I was writing
at the time was like my therapy."
After taking the world by storm
in 2002 with her infectous debut disc 'Southern
(who's real name is Charlene Keys
- no relation to Alicia Keys:)
returns with her latest effort and 3rd single 'Boogie
Produced by Missy
with beats laid down by Timbaland,
Boogie 2 Nite is
a groovy uptempo dance number that asks the question of 'Are U ready'
to boogie all night. Solid bass, hand claps and a catchy hook makes
this one a monster hit in the making.
Already blowing up big time in
the UK, Boogie 2 Nite
looks to achieve the feat here in the states as the single both domestic
and import gets a major release next month.
This is a wicked track and will
score big on radio as well as the clubs so peep this one as you won't
be disappointed. Also check out her album already in stores now -
a TY-D Pick.
