    Sevyn’s EP last year housed some of the best songs I’ve heard in awhile so the thought of her releasing her debut album this year is very exciting. I hope she drops it before the summer. She’s definitely destined for great things!!!

    Bet yall didnt know that Sevyn was apart of a girl group 5years ago, that had 1-2 mediocre hits… Also ‘Brave’ from RnB Divas LA was also apart of that same group called “Rich Girl”

    Sevyn has grown so much, and Im excited for her career. Im glad she dances too! There are too many stiff bittches hogging up the scene!

      It’s getting ridiculous. I don’t understand their obsession with her. Why can’t they just be a fan. This interview should be about Sevyn and her music. If I was an artist I would be offended, or just wouldn’t do an interview with them knowing Beyonce name would come up. They need some type of therapy to get over their obsession.

    Sev’s EP is so dope from start to finish. I know her album will be dope too. DKTF is my fav song right now. It takes you on a musical journey from the house swag, to the trumpet to the trap-like bass…it sounds like nothing on the radio & it’s just an overall FUN SONG!!!! It’s good to hear something other than money, b******, n***** ain’t s*** and s**!!!

        Because she deserves it and it’s the truth. Aaliyah’s swag and sound lives on through these artists. Even your fave gets compared to her. Janet had her own style and most definitely is the MOTHER to all of them but all the new girls are going the Aaliyah route.

        Too much credit? It’s just credit, and a clear one as that. Girls didn’t dress, moved or sounded like this untill 1994, when Aaliyah came out. Janet is Queen, but you see her influence in performance and album structure/theme. When it comes to style, rather it’s fashion, swagger, vocals or sound, it’s Aaliyah. Can’t rewrite history kids. And when it comes to that, Aaliyah is a Princess of that house.

    The fact that her music sounds like nothing out there. DKTF did sound strange at first, but is now my jam. She’s pretty, down to earth, can sing, dance, write, she’s what music needs right now.

    Sevyn has some pretty dope music. I feel like the influx of breakthrough female R&B singers (Jhené Aiko, K. Michelle, Tamar Braxton, Tinashe, Teyana Taylor, Natalie La Rose) has put her in a back seat. People have been sleeping on her. She needs to jump on a hot collaboration or get some promo in.

        Tbh, none of them get the right amount of promo, save Tamar and K. Michelle who get weekly promo from tv. You’d think the recent shift to a more urban sound would cause labels to invest in their artist but it only seems true for the ones who already established a fan base.
