If you’ve caught the brand new Missy Elliott video, the one that’s dedicated to the loving memory of Aaliyah, entitled ‘Take Away’, you would notice that a relatively unknown singer Tweet lends her vocals to the song and can be seen present in the video too.
All the talk about how she is virtually an unknown is set to change with Tweet’s first single as a solo artist, ‘Oops (Oh My)’, climbing up the Billboard charts really fast. Discovered by Missy Elliott and Timbaland and signed on to Gold Mind Record, Tweet is very talented in every sense of the word according to reports. Apparently, not only is she an excellent singer, she is also a producer, songwriter plus a good acoustic guitarist and drummer.Tweet, whose name sounds like it’s derived from watching far too many cartoons, especially the one with the small yellow bird (not naming names here but you guys know which one), is about to release her debut album called ‘Southern Hummingbird’ that would be available in all good record stores sometime in the coming months. Word has it that it may be released on the 2nd of April but it is subject to change.
What can you find on Tweet’s virgin album? Well, for starters, there’s the first single that features clever wordplay. Expect to find a duet with R&B star Bilal. Other songs include ‘Best Friend’ and a hip-hop dance number called ‘Boogie 2nite’.
