Eve Announces New Single ‘She Bad Bad’ / Unveils Cover

eve she bad bad cover thatgrapejuice Eve Announces New Single She Bad Bad / Unveils Cover

We were beginning to worry, but it looks like Eve is finally back!

After a lengthy hiatus, one characterised by legal issues and a label change, the self-professed Pitbull In A Skirt barks back with new single ‘She Bad Bad’ - the cover for which she unmasked on Twitter moments ago.

The cut, which hits iTunes tomorrow, is the first effort to be lifted E-V-E’s EMI debut which boasts production from the likes of Missy Elliott and is set for release next year.

With Nicki Minaj having had a strong-hold of sorts on the commercial femcee market as of late, it’ll be uber interesting to see if her success assists the likes of  established acts such as Eve reclaim their spots at the top. As long-time supports of the former Ruff Ryder‘s talent, we sure hope it does.

Your thoughts?

    Bet you any money Eve won’t even sell half of what Nicki sold with Reloaded first week.

    I’ll even screen cap this thread and email it you when her album comes out because that’s how sure I am of this.

    Nicki is the Rihanna of Rap. She may not be the most talented but her grind , music and work ethic is stronger than all the other b******.

    Real lyrics? Are Nicki Minaj’s lyrics made of air? No b****, they are real because they are real TO HER. Not everyone wants to talk about struggling on the streets or tricking in the club.
    Some Rappers are actually happy and so rap about happy things. Doesn’t Eve still live in the projects of Philly?
    THE STRUGGLE.

    Meanwhile Nickis out in Malibu taking in the sun and Eve out here dodging gun shots in the hood. I CANNOT.

    People say these old timers will come and ‘put Nicki in her place’. I really can’t wait o see that. I can’t wait to see them outsell her. I really can’t, but I know they won’t. Nicki is the s***, and I bet none of the Rap girls will be able to outsell her even if their new sales are combined.

    This is a business and Missy, Eve and Kim aren’t making a profit.

    Reply

    Sarah Says Replied:

    Missy is a producer and songwriter so she is making a profit. and the others done made a profit by not selling out, keeping it real and still managing to cross over.

    MJForever Replied:

    “Sometimes respect is better than sales.”

    Tell that to her label’s finance and marketing department. When will you people learn that this is a BUSINESS. Labels don’t care about what you did twenty years ago unless they continue to make major bucks from it.

    Missy and the rest were good for their TIME, but they are not going to impress on the charts this time around and the sooner you accept it the easier it will be for you when their sales are revealed.

    Nicki Minaj didn’t get to judge on American Idol or become the face of Pepsi or have two number one albums because she’s a gimmick or a copy cat. She got there by building a strong fan base who worship the ground she walks on and will buy anything she puts out.

    Plus, she sold out by making Pop music which gets her radio play on so many different formats which makes her more attractive to her label and the companies she works with.

    Unless Missy and co cut some kind of deal with the radio to get their music played every hour on the hour they are going to flop miserably.

    That doesn’t mean their music will be s***,it just means their labels will have even more of a reason not to support them.

    Sarah Says Replied:

    If they are so washed up why are they still releasing music after long breaks with major record labels? Clearly someone thinks that there is still some interest in them?
    As for Nikki, he gimmiks are exacty why she has become popular and has those endorsements, her strong fan base is due to the bright colours and childrens televisision outfits that appeal to 5 to 25 year olds, pop music lovers and reader of TGJ. If Nikki was doing what she was doing with regular outfits and her original skin tone she wouldn’t be as successful.

    Dat Bish Replied:

    Look, this is the business. A label will only give you a shot. If you think Eve is gonna come out the gate coming for Nick’s head. It ain’t gonna work. Respect is only earned in the business by the money that is made via record sales and touring. Eve might as well be a new artist. Lil Kim has a better shot at a come back because her return of the queen tour was successful. Eve hasn’t had a hit for years. She quit the game for greener pastures, Tv shows, fashion lines and dating a string of wealthy men, some with dirty money.
    Respect and power and iconic status is based on how much you sell. Don’t believe me ask Adele.

    I’m sorry but even if you think Nicki’s music is trash you can’t deny she’s slaying all of these girls.

    How many artists (rappers or non rappers) are debuting with over 200k nowadays, or can say they’re being picked up by international brands, or have as many as chart entries as she does.

    Eve and the rest are Rap legends but they’ve had their time and one day Nicki will too, but I’d advise any of their stans to be careful of thinking they’re going to have successful come backs when the truth of the matter is that their labels won’t make them a priority and so radio won’t back them.

    Nicki is a gimmick and hella fake but she is very smart and has all her business cards in order, she knows how to brand herself and knows how to position herself as a brand worth investing in. Eve and the others girls just aren’t that appealing to the general public in the way Nicki is and because Hip Hop fans will only support artists who get a heavy push (Drake, Asap, 2Chainz, Weeknd, Wayne , Jay and Kanye) Missy and Eve are going to flop.

    Im sorry to say it but its true. Can you really see them getting love on the radio, or people rushing to download their music when it’s out.

    I can’t.

    Your argument is so flawed its sad.

    So when people go on Itunes and pay their 10 dollars or 99 cents for her music they’re doing it because she’s copying Gaga? If that was the case wouldn’t they just buy Gaga’s or Kim’s music?

    Right? People buy Nicki Minaj because they LIKE it. L.I.K.E. LIKE IT! Not because they think she’s an impostor or a fake but because they like it.

    Can we all stop trying to pit every female artist against each other! I mean Fans/Stans it is ridiculous! Missy said it best there is room enough for everyone! Missy, Eve, Kim etc are LEGENDS. They are veterans! EVE crossed over years ago and was able to leverage herself from a hood rich rapper to a bonafide brand with music, clothing, and a successful television show which she co created and executive produced. Missy is a successful rap artist, writer, singer and producer. Missy’s checks have never and will never stop. In a already male dominated industry, I am tired of all these blogs and fans pitting women against each other. There is room for everyone’s tastes and why do Eve and Nicki have to be competing. Kim, Foxy, Eve, Missy, Da Brat, paved the way for the female rappers of this generation and the women before them paved their way. As an audience we need to begin to applaud and facilitate harmony instead of vicious hate.I’m just saying!

    Why do these girls even bother?

    Nicki’s been slaying them since 07 and outsells them even at her lowest. If these aged hip hop divas couldn’t sell big in their prime why do you think they could do big numbers now.

    This is no disrespect, but in an age where Nysnc and DC were selling between 600k to 1 million copies in their debut weeks, Kim and Eve sales were very poor. Lauryn was the only one who could give the Pop stars a run for their money, the rest were too busy trying to be gangsters to prolong their careers past 2004.

    Eve tried her best but what’s left of her brand now. You flops better support them because if you don’t we gon have a field day up in heeyuh.

    In order for Missy, Kim, and Eve to be successful this time around, they need to really hustle. I’m talking collaborations with many relevant artists, more TV appearances, etc because otherwise they won’t do as well as they’ve done in the past, or in other words “flop”.

    Please. Nicki’s 15 minutes is down to the last 5. That episode she just had with Mariah the other day made her lose a bunch of respect in the general music community. These female rapper icons are actually coming back out at a PERFECT time, because you can already sense the backlash brewing against Nicki. As people begin to tire of Nicki’s antics and gimmicks, they will look elsewhere. And lets not forget that the only reason Nicki even has a career at all is because she came out at a time when all of these REAL female rappers were on hiatus and thus had no competition. For all intents and purposes, Nicki is the the quintessential “seat filler”.

    Real talk: perhaps 1 Missy or 1 Eve or even 1 Kim couldn’t shift attention away from Nicki…but if they **all** return at around the same time, I promise you that the strength in numbers WILL be enough to derail her.

    Oh, and LOL@the idiot who referred to Eve as an “old timer.” You do know that she’s only a few years older than Nicki, right? :lol:

    Dat Bish Replied:

    Please the only person who got nailed was Mariah who had to FIRE her entourage or GET fired herself for disrupting the set and spreading lies to TMZ. Mariah nearly got her ass fired for what she did to Nicki. Learn this, power means that they would rather get rid of the Mariah Carey than Nicki Minaj because Nicki is hot and Mariah is not. The industry will not put cash into hasbeens to try to knock off Nicki. They can all comeback at the same time and they will still flop because like Mariah they are so 1998-2001.

It didn’t work so whatevs… Mariah doesn’t have power. She looks like a foolish hasbeen who needs help with her dead ass career. Legend or no, Mariah needs to have a seat.

    E..V.E. is NO icon. Salt N Pepa? Yes… Roxanne Shante? Yes. Miss Melodie? Yes. Lil’ Kim? Yes. Queen Latifah? Yes. Missy? Yes. Lauryn Hill? Yes. Eve? HELL NO her ass threw it away in order to be a TV and fashion star.. NOPE that flopped for her ass so she started f****** a dictators son for money.

Theres Alot Of People Who Can’t Wait For Eve’s CD To Hit The Stores. I Highly Doubt That Eve’s CD Is Gonna Be A Flop Cuz The s*** That I’m Hearing That She Been Putting Out Isn’t Crap And She Gots That Smooth Hood Flow That Nicki Will Never Have. Lip Lock April 2013!
