New Song: Sabrina Washington – ‘Hit It Hard’

Misteeq maestra Sabrina Washington is back!

After teasing with ‘OMG’ in 2010, the singer strikes again with her second solo assault ‘Hit It Hard’.

Check out the cut’s video after the jump…

Slick! As with the clip for ‘OMG’, Sabrina stays upping the levels for UK visuals. Indeed, despite being an independent release, the clip stands head and shoulders above the offerings of many major label UK acts.

As for the song; with its strong Drum N’ Bass overtones, it’s markedly more “British” than Washington’s material with Misteeq and solo – which is by no means a “bad” thing, more so just interesting given the “commercial” Urban-Pop that defined her previous sound.

That said, with female R&B arena being extremely populated at present, we give kudos to Sabrina for stepping out with something a lil different this go round. Here’s hoping it hits the spot. Hard.

      The Majority Of Blacks Bring Racism On Themselves
      Racism doesn’t happen to civilized races unless perpetuated by an uncivilized race. I’ve never in my life heard of a South East Asian being beaten or killed because of a racial issue. Probably because South East Asians don’t annoy people by continuously murdering, raping and robbing them in their own lands.
      The majority of black “people” walk around with a constant chip on their shoulder. Always angry or thinking the world owes them something. Of course, anti-racist libtards enable this by constantly informing them they are owed something, but that’s for another debate.
      If blacks learned to be a little more civilized in their behavior then racism would decrease. This is actually a fact because I know mine would. My only crime is wanting to live in a peaceful society where everybody is civil to eachother. That’s literally impossible with blacks around.
      No one WANTS to be racist. No one hates for no reason or over something as trivial as different skin color. If that were the case, why do I like South East Asians? They have a different skin color to mine. And why do I like them? Because the majority are nice, quiet, respectful, hard-working, law-abiding people. I tend to like nice people and dislike uncivilized, horrible people. Which explains my racism towards blacks.
      Racism will continue until blacks learn how to be nicer “people” like the rest of us in civilized society. But I don’t think blacks want racism to diminish. Not while they can cash in on it and use it to their own advantage.
      Thus a never ending cycle of wretchedness in society that can never be rectified unless racial segregation

        Girl bye. You’re racist against blacks because you fail to see that not all blacks are the same. Don’t validate your racism by bringing up those ridiculous excuses.
        You are a very ignorant person to group everbody of one race into the same bucket.
        A few months ago some crazy white male decided to shoot a bunch of innocent people in a movie theatre. Do I think all whites are bad? No. In fact my very own boyfriend is white.
        A few years ago middle eastern terrorists blew up the world trade center in my state.
        Do I think all middle easterners or muslims are bad? No, because I have enough sense to know not all people of one racial group are the same.
        Get some sense fool.

Well my dear I happen to be someone who does not pay for hair as I am of mixed heritage and so u can guess whose hair keeps blowing in the wind on her beautiful days out – Yep Moi!!! Ooops u were so sure that I was african with a weave Ha!! Ha!! U are too cute!! Poor Beyonce was born light skinned and also Rihanna so as a non black u got ure facts wrong plus Iman is not currently fair skinned so I do not know where u got the idea that she had bleached!!! Accept that there are blacks who are light skinned E.G Moi and there are those who are dark skinned – we come in different shades darling!! U are addicted to us as u see most of the artists u previously listed are never mentioned here!!! so get lost already – But no that would be wishful thinking on my part as you will arrive from so called work today and log in to come onto this website – Curious B****!! U have too much details about black artists – Why do u bother to read articles about these black people u listed as supposed bleachers? Hmmm!! Can’t help yourself can you? A*** is in every country as I know first hand since my aunt works at a London community hospital and told me first hand how a*** affects a good proportion of young white and black youths as well as the older generation – they are lucky that the medication is free!!! Have these people been to Africa – No most probably not so your a Fool for even typing that. Most importantly I work in the Department for Works and Pensions and I can tell you my darling that the majority of people on benefits in the UK are white – Why? Because they are the majority so in terms of numbers they are the most likely – counting those up north to be on income support. The vast majority of your people do not want to work for no apparent reasons other than utter sheer laziness!!! Lounging around council estates all day long and most likely to abuse their kids!! So I see it everyday Boo Boo!! U guys hype yourselves up to be special or different or perhaps more hard working but that is definitely not the case. Most white people cannot even write english although they do speak it, so when they are signing on they require help to get their check – Girl Please go have several seats as I see your people everyday in the dumps screaming and crying over hard working taxpayers money like it is their birth right – Losers!!! Before you come into other peoples community to talk try and help clean up the mess in your community cos it ain’t pretty Boo Boo!! Every ethnic group has its flaws and the beauty of life is that we can all see what each other wants to hide and use it against each other whenever we like. I can do this all day with you but what is the point as I have my opinion and you have yours. You can never convince me that your people are better than me cos I know that they are not and as a very confident individual its killing you that I have a response to every filthy thing you have to write because I am very aware of my surroundings and switched on – so you can’t throw no lies or BS over here cos the truth is always there to be seen. U can compare all day long sweety but the question is – will I agree with you – Of course not!!! I only agree with myself or people who have something sensible to say. Come to a Black blog site as I am sure you always do and comment as you see fit but talking about white versus black is a no win situation as you guys think ure the s*** – we think that we are the s*** too so its a pointless battle – Use your kidney if you haven’t got a brain darling!!! No Negro will agree with your stupid analogies – Mostly because it comes from a bad place!! I am by no means an actual racist but I will defend my own if need be so as you would too – But then you are the instigator so you have no defence. My life is a perfect picture – Its such a pity you cannot be a spectator in it!! I love my face, my skin, my body and my hair cos its just too good to be true – will parade around naked now just for fun – can you say the same dear? You throw curses my way but it can not or will not change or affect me cause I will continue to wake up cute day after day after day – with your white men drooling all over me – Hmmm!! someones got jungle fever (Sings to self) Bye Boo Boo!! I have enjoyed this chat its a pity it was not with someone like minded and much more of an intellect. – Can I suggest some night classes (Free education might be needed)!!! I shall wait patiently for your response Boo Boo!!! U know u want to!!!

        Hi Monique dont be a LAZY BLACK WOMAN put down your pipe and read this:
        Racism exists in this country so will sexism, classism, elitism and every other kind of “ism” you can name. People have ALWAYS picked on anyone they could, and they always will. That’s simple human nature and you’ll see it over and over again if you study history. Being black is no excuse for failure. You may have a steeper climb, but you can make it. Look around. A lot of black people have. You can do it, too. Stop making your own bed and bitching about sleeping in it. Black people who listen to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and expect the government to give them something for nothing are blind sheep. Those “leaders” have a vested interest in keeping the slaves on the plantation. If you listen to them, that’s where you’ll stay. Learn to read and write. That’s not “acting white.” That’s the key to success anywhere you want to go. And ANYBODY can master those tools. Nobody ever said life was fair. It ain’t and it never will be. Get over that fact. You’re not the only people ever pissed on by life. Look at the Jews and the Vietnamese. THEY were pissed on, but they didn’t lay there in the puddle to be pissed on again. I’ve never liked labour unions because they preach the lowest common denominator as a standard for performance. I do not believe that we should dumb down the rest of society, create “4.6” GPAs and engage in the tacit racism of low expectations for black people. That kind of crap only exacerbates the problem. Black men: raise your goddam children. I’ve heard this s*** too often to recall – some 20-something black guy bragging to his buddies at work that he KNOWS he’s a man because he’s sired three children by different women. He doesn’t know his kid’s names, but that doesn’t matter to him. He thinks he’s a man. Dogs do what he did. Fathers don’t. Accept responsibility for your own actions. I know that it’s a lot to ask in today’s victim-oriented society, but do you really believe that hip-hop and rap, Ebonics and baggy pants are the way to get out of the ghetto? I don’t think so. I believe it’s the way to keep yourself mired there and it’s YOUR CHOICE TO MAKE. Blame all of your problems on ME. That’s right. If you are unemployed, living on a welfare check, semi-raising illegitimate children and unable to read the want ads in the newspaper, I DID THAT TO YOU. Me. It ain’t YOUR fault. Racist bastards such as myself took away every opportunity in your life, made you drop out of school and become pregnant or a jailbird and bitter because manna from heaven didn’t fall right into your lap. Just do me one simple favour. Take a good, long look in the mirror before you point a finger at me.
        Why I Hate Black People: Since the 1st Black On White R*** in the Bible When the Serpent R**** Adam & Eve, the Black Man’s Only Goal Has Been to Terrorize Us. He Hasn’t Sought to Evolve. I Don’t Hate Black People. I Hate Evil. Black People are Evil.
        Black “people” are not humans. This is clear from the first book of the Bible when we learn the Serpent (used to represent a black man) could talk and spoke to Adam and Eve.
        Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? (Genesis 3:1)
        We learn from this scripture that from the beginning, black people have been the most subtil beasts in the field. We also know, as my pastor teaches that “eating of every tree in the garden” is a metaphor for having s**. This “s**” which, as in the book of Corinthians we learn, was actually a r***.
        But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:3)
        Nothing bothers me more than logicalness hate, hatred without reason. But, the could be said for love.
        Flash forward:
        Today this nation has been beguiled by the subtle words of the black who, again, is presenting himself as a human.
        As proven by the Bible, our biggest flaw is having sentimentality to creatures who use crafty words to appeal to our sense of reason.
        The blacks’ ability to convince many that they were human and, thus, deserve “human rights” brought about the abolishment of institution responsible for making this nation what it is today: slavery.
        The truth of the matter is blacks were meant to be our slaves and, as the Bible shows us, only through their subtle character and ability to beguile have the been able to manipulate us to this, the day of Obama.

        Blacks should be grateful for being slaves in the past if whites did not bring them to America on boats they would still be in tribes and uneducated they segregate themselves they deserve no special attention or recognition at all. They need to be grateful.
        They would be starving to death, being genitally mutilated, and watching their children die of simple diseases like diarrhea. I would go as far as saying that we did them a favor by bringing them over here as slaves they would still be chucking spears and running from cheetahs.
        They all want to be players so they will have s** with absolutely anything. They are bottom feeders. They are lazy, irresponsible, and weak. That’s all there is to it. Most of them don’t deserve to be called a man. They are always killing each other, calling each other the n word, selling crack in their communities, abandoning their women (What I don’t Mind) but as soon as the cops come knocking, they pull the race card and scream conspiracy all that is laziness and ignorance. There is no excuse for an adult, so what if their parents smoked crack, that’s no excuse. Because of what their ancestors went through, they should want to be better, but instead they’d rather act like hooligans look at the Tottenham riot all blacks. Black males are more likely to neglect or abandon their children, this is a statistical fact.
        And honey we all know you don’t work your a drug-using, immoral, welfare-collecting, turd-colored pieces of s*** who thinks you they are better than white people, you will never be!
        I would argue that blacks are weak-willed. They are the only race that has been enslaved for 300 years. It’s unbelievable that it took them that long to fight back.

      Misteeq have had a tiny bit of US success, Scandalous getting to #35 on the Top 100. However, I doubt anybody nowadays would know who Misteeq or Sabrina is

    I read, on the BBC, that UK no longer sign black women anymore. This explains why she is independent. I have been watching UK xfactor, and there was not a single black act through – so far! Saturday is the last day.

    Blonde, Amelia Lilly from Xfactor was in the same group as Misha B, but her debut is heading to number 1 in the UK. Misha B could not even get into the top 10, add that to alexandra burke being blacklisted in the UK, and I would say that it is a wrap for black women in the UK music industry.

    Time to get a 9 – 5 COS THE UK are not checking for them.

      Well… Maybe you should stop acting like NeNe, the finger-waving, head-bobbling, in-your-face loudmouth on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Inundated with images of black women walking around with chips on their shoulders for no apparent reason.
      I’m tired of young black women in videos acting as if they believe being obnoxious is a virtue and kindness is a sign of weakness. I’m tired of the middle-aged black woman used to generate laughs on television comedies by yelling at her spouse so abusively that he backs down in fear. And I’m tired of the trash-talking black woman used to peddle products in advertisements.
      Is it really necessary for her to throw a soda can at her man when he says hello to another woman who sits down next to them on a park bench?
      Does it really make people rush out to buy a life insurance policy when she privately praises her husband for buying one but abruptly gets an attitude when he enters the room?
      I suppose the rationale is that if Tyler Perry can fill up a movie theater every time he puts on a dress and turns into Madea, why not?
      Geraldine Henderson, an advertising professor at Rutgers University, doesn’t think truth has anything to do with it. What we’re seeing, she says, is all about perception.
      The angry black woman is an old standby that is often used to pitch a product in the 15 to 30 seconds allotted to commercials. She’s an easy target, Henderson says, because there’s no need to waste time on her back story. We know her already.
      I’d like to see her retire, but if she won’t go away, maybe it’s time for a makeover. Instead of focusing on the buffoons, let’s talk about black women who’ve found a positive outlet for their anger.
      We all know the stories of angry black women like Fannie Lou Hamer, Ida B. Wells, Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman, who have made a mark on history.
      But there many of them living among us now.
      Annette Nance-Holt was enraged when her son, Blair, a 16-year-old honor student at Julian High School, was shot to death on a CTA bus in Roseland while trying to protect a friend from gang crossfire. She channeled her pain and anger into an anti-violence campaign that includes lobbying for tougher gun laws and helping other parents of murdered children come to terms with their grief.
      Let’s forget about Omarosa, the villainous back-stabber on “The Apprentice,” and think about Diane Latiker, who was so angry that children were hanging out on the streets of Roseland because they had no place to go that she began inviting them into her home. It led to her safe haven program, Kids Off the Block.
      And there’s Ameena Matthews, a former gang member who was born into violence as the daughter of jailed El Rukn street gang chief Jeff Fort. She gave up that lifestyle and now works with CeaseFire to mediate gang disputes and counsel young people.
      Matthews’ work was documented in the film”The Interrupters,”but there are others who will never appear in a movie or a television commercial. They walk among us quietly, without ever raising their voices.
      The angry black woman label might never go away. But these women remind us that if we put our anger to good use, we don’t have to be ashamed of it.

    Stay in school CHILDREN!!! Your spelling is atrocious!! Could not be bother to read through all of this as her royal highness is too busy!!! Its amazing how one thinks that if they type the word ‘UGLY’ in response to someone that the person will miraculously become ugly – I am too cute and pretty for words so I am here looking in the mirror and all I see and what other people who know me see as well as strangers is a cutee!!! U have no power in your words even if you wrote it with all that enthusiasm – Thank you for the effort though as positive or negative attention is all good over here – and by the way I did not say I was with a white man!! – Like I said before please keep coming to this BLACK site cos u know u need ure black musician news fix!!! It hurt u guys so much that you almost punch the hell out of your keyboards to type your message to moi!!! Educate yourselves and do try to spell your words with more precision people!! whats the point of hyping up the non-blacks as the superior ones but you speak and spell like you have been deprived of basic learning!! – You can respond all you want but my opinion can never change nor was I seeking to change yours – I was only giving my opinion which still stands!!! – U do not have the power to hurt one you do not know with your words but apparently I got to you – Interesting!!! Peace and Love Boo Boo!! Keep giving the BLACK Q***** traffic on their blog – How kind of you!!! Ha!! Ha!!! Ha!!! Ha!!!
