Platinum Selling Recording Artist Sevyn
Streeter Releases New Single 'Watchusay'
(New York, NY)
- Certified-platinum recording artist and Billboard chart-topping singer/songwriter Sevyn Streeter released new track
"Whatchusay" along with a music video, as the first release off of her forthcoming album "Drunken Wordz x Sober
Thoughtz," via Groundwērk/Entertainment One (eOne) and is set to drop in 2020
Sensual and audacious, the new track and video gives fans a taste of what to expect
on her forthcoming album - an unapologetic, uninhibited, smart woman doing smart business, who is taking matters into her
own hands. A departure from her debut album, Girl Disrupted, Drunken Wordz x Sober Thoughtz is her first album as an independent
artist and plays on the parallel between the figurative "drunk", or uninhibited, fearless, sexy, free Sevyn, and
the "sober", or level-headed, clear-minded, focused Sevyn - and at the intersection of the two is a confident, career-driven
woman in control of her destiny. "Whatchusay" represents the daring side of Sevyn that fans have never seen before.
Sevyn Streeter is best known for her debut album, "Girl
Disrupted," which charted #1 on iTunes and yielded a Billboard Top 10 single, "Before I Do." Re-inspired and
recharged, Sevyn will round out 2019 with the release of the first track "Whatchusay" off of her forthcoming album
titled "Drunken Wordz x Sober Thoughtz," which will drop in 2020.
Sevyn began gaining traction in 2013, with the success of her solo EP "Call Me Crazy, But..."
which debuted at #5 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The Certified Platinum Record, "It Won't Stop,"
was the lead single from the EP and topped Billboard's "Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay" chart for nine consecutive
weeks, while climbing both Billboard's "Hot 100" and "R&B/Hip Hop Songs" chart. In addition, the companion
video - directed by and costarring Grammy Award winner Chris Brown, has earned more than 150 million views to date.
Along with her solo career,
Sevyn is a writer of some of the music industry's most recognizable songs - including seven songs on Chris Brown's Grammy
winning album, Fame, and seven songs on the follow-up Album, Fortune. More song writing credits include two songs from Alicia
Keys' Grammy winning album, Girl on Fire, and singles such as Chris Brown's "Fine China," Tamar Braxton's "All
The Way Home," Alicia Keys' "New Day," and Ariana Grande's chart-topping hit, "The Way." Sevyn is
a six-time ASCAP award-winning songwriter who has worked with a remarkable roster of top studio superstars, including Diplo,
Polow Da Don, Jessie J., Fantasia, Estelle and many others. Without any doubt, Sevyn Streeter will be in the music industry
for years to come.
