It's been two years since Sevyn Streeter dropped off her official debut, Girl Disrupted.  Fast-forward to 2019,  it looks like it  fans are finally about to get Sevyn's sophomore album.

But first,  the 33-year-old crooner has to deliver a couple singles. Up second to bat, following 2018's "Yernin' is the lovelorn record, "Whatchusay," a song that finds the Sevyn telling her ex-lover how corny he is.

The song even came with brand new music visuals. The Florida native briefly spoke to VIBE about the content of her new song and video.


VIBE: What inspired “WHATCHUSAY”? What is it about?A: 
Sevyn Streeter: I wrote "WHATCHUSAY" based off all the relationships I hear about – including my own past relationships – where you basically hold people down and then they split out… and you know I had a cousin that went through something like this and I’ve gone thru it before and its real… "WHATCHUSAY" is finding that inner voice that stands up for yourself and confronts that person that had the audacity to shit on the person that did well by them when they’re not in such great spaces.

 Tell us about the video – what’s the vibe? Inspiration? Attitude?
 The video is bold, gritty, and sexy. It’s an ode to the 90s and the 90s videos that I grew up lovingThe inspiration was Janet Jackson. The video is just my way of speaking my truth and the truth of others who have been through it.

What would you say is the biggest difference from your sound in “WHATCHUSAY” versus your past music?
 I think the difference is in the past you know, I would kind of complain about hardships. In "WHATCHUSAY," I’m not complaining anymore about what guys did to me or who broke my heart in "WHATCHUSAY" I’m a grown woman and I’ll just handle the situation accordingly. There is no time for sobbing in bed for 3 days over a ni**a… Just handle it and move

"Whatchusay" is the lead single from the forthcoming Drunken Wordz x Sober Thoughtz album.

Premiere: Lambo Anlo Praises Women Hustlers In 'Blac Chyna' Video

Stripper-turned-entrepreneur Blac Chyna is one of the more polarizing figures in black music and reality TV, but Washington DC artist Lambo Anlo pays homage to her in his new video.

On "Blac Chyna," Lambo uses melodic rhymes to tell the story of a woman who uses her hustle, her beauty and her body to go from "section 8 to a palace." He speaks from a place of admiration for her focus, and the visual is a one shot video that shows him playing piano as the backdrop for a crew of gorgeous women of different complexions.

"It's the story of a female who grew up in an impoverished environment, taking any step she can to get where she wants to be in life," Lambo Anlo told VIBE. "For the video, we wanted to showcase the various cultures and races of women that go through this same struggle."

"I wanted to make an intimate video that juxtaposes two different types of people in more of a veiled style than what's traditionally expected," director Dillon Dowdell told VIBE.

Yazid Britt, director for creative services and marketing at Rostrum Records, noted that instead of simply casting a lookalike of the song's namesake as the lead, they wanted to go deeper and connect with viewers.

"It was an easy suggestion to just place a literal version of Blac Chyna as the female lead, but in many cases people see themselves through celebrities and that's what we set out with director Dillon Dowdell. There is a Blac Chyna in every culture.”

Jaden Smith Paints The City Pink "Again" In New Video

Jaden Smith released the brand new music visuals for his record, "Again," featuring his alter ego SYRE.  The song is taken from his latest album ERYS, which dropped earlier this year.

Here, in the new visuals, Jaden uses his typical pink-colored theme, as the video kicks off with him spray painting his pink car with his MSFTS imprint before breaking out into a dance on top of the car.

The rapper seems to be sporting a new triangle-shaped face tattoo on his right cheek, which is probably just for the video, and may or may not be a reference to that illuminati-pyramid he was building in his parents backyard.

In other Jaden Smith news, the actor is slated to play a young Kanye West in Omniverse, an anthology that examines perception through the eyes of Mr. West.
