Tweet Plots Comeback

Published: Sunday 7th Aug 2011 by Sam

It’s been a pretty minute since we’ve heard from Tweet.

Indeed, a label change and an halted comeback attempt have kept this Southern Hummingbird caged for almost 4 years.

Now, in a recent interview, the ‘Oops, Oh My’ singer has lifted the lid on what’s kept her musically inactive, her comeback, and forthcoming tour.

Full story after the jump…

Via Woodstar Festival:

She titled her third release Love, Tweet because “it’s a ‘Thank You’ to my fans that never left me, who are still there on MySpace, Twitter and Facebook, checking for new developments, and coming up to me on the streets saying ‘We’re still supporting you! Come on, we’re waiting for you!’ So it’s just a love note to my fans saying ‘Thank you’ for all of the love and support.”

But the excitement was sadly interrupted with the passing of her mentor, Jheryl Busby, leaving Tweet again wondering if this “music thing ” was something she still wanted to do. She was again silenced.
“It was a hard time for me but I thought I can’t give up, especially not now, I owe it to my fans, to Jheryl and myself to make sure this project comes out. Instead of a note to my fans, it will be more like a letter.” laughs Tweet.

Now having to start things all over again, Tweet is ready. New slate, new album new vision and new songs. Leaked favorites like “Good Bye My Dear”, with fellow Atlantan and two-time Grammy-winning rapper T.I., and “Anymore” produced by Novel (Joss Stone) are no longer and she says her fans will not be disappointed with what’s to come.

“I took it back to Southern Hummingbird…acoustic, in your face lyrics.” she says excitingly. Like “Love Again,”(on ITunes) produced by Charlie BeReal and Craig Brockman which she describes as “Mary J. ‘What’s the 411’ in a very Tweet way.” “Love Again” is about “being confused about love and wondering if you want to go there again,” states Tweet. And then there’s the acoustic record “Alone,” produced by Tweet, Nisan Stewart, Charlie BeReal and Craig Brockman reminiscent of her own “Motel” from Southern Hummingbird. “‘Alone’ talks about being faithful to a person and putting all of this time in and still feeling like you’re by yourself. True story — that happened to me.”
“I put together a lot of records I think everyone will enjoy: My Tweet fans, and also the people who really didn’t get to know me,” Tweet continues. “I’m introducing myself to them with an album I’m proud of.”

Sounds like the world should step back— and prepare for Tweet’s roar again.

Though somewhat of a sceptic when it comes to ‘independent’ releases (the major label machine still wields too much power), I will willingly turn into a believer for Ms. Tweet. Vocal butter, her voice is everything; most certainly one yours truly is ready to welcome back. Particularly in light of the Jersey Shore fist-pumping cuts which are all the rage these days.

    all i rmbr of her is being in Missy’s videos and her hit “oops oh my”

    also she promoted her 1st album w/ lots of acoustic performances.im open-minded about her. she seems like a real musician

  5. Twit August 7, 2011

    Tweet will have the biggest amount of Twitter followers if she gets a Twitter account.

    Her name is Tweet, afterall. She owns the tweeter messages.

    LOL@”R &B IS BACK”.

    With THOSE names?

    – Andre 3000 is hip hop, not R&B.

    – Missy used to score hits, but couldn’t sell albums — even back when albums were going 10x platinum, she would stall at platinum.

    – Brandy, like Janet, has been consistently flopping for 10 years. Every one of her albums over the last decade has struggled; selling less than the one before it. You can only fail so many times before you are officially discarded. She was downgraded to a VH-1 reality star; with the likes of the New York and the Basketball Wives.

    – Amerie and Tweet. Please. As if. Those two are non-entities, who had a few (and I do mean, few) fleeting/forgettable hits, but never had any star power. What next, Nivea, Toya and Christina Milian announcing they have new albums in the works, and people thinking that they’re going to make noise too? LMAO!

    Ashanti is the only one on that list who I can suspend disbelief long enough to humor the idea of her next album could POSSIBLY do something noticeable…but even that’s sketchy.

    We need some new names. Some new blood. These 90s and early 00s has-beens ain’t gonna come back and make the scene right again.

    She features on Syleena Johnson’s new album too, ‘Chapter V: Underrated’ which is released September 27!!

  12. KAT DELUNA FAN August 7, 2011

    @CZAR
    CAN YOU IMAGINE FOR A SECOND THAT SOME PPL ARE HAPPY TO HEAR MUSIC? SOME DONT GIVE A SINGLE F*** ABOUT NUMBERS AND CERTIFICATIONS??

    MUSIC IS MUSIC
    NUMBERS ARE NUMBERS

    SO I AM SUPPOSE TO STUCK TO THE “LMFAO” or “BIEBER” BECAUSE THEY R MAKING “NOISE”??

    PLIGGA NEASE

    WHAT KIND OF MENTALITY IN 2011 WITH YOU GUYS 🙄

  13. 100% REAL August 7, 2011

    This doesn’t even look like her in this photo. She looks completely different. Anyway, I would like to hear some new music from her.

  14. Kellymotivation August 7, 2011

    @GLEN

    Is Syleena Johnson really naming her album “UNDERRATED”??? LOL…##I just can’t

  15. Thedimplepuppet August 7, 2011

    @ KellyMotivation your walking to YouTube? I didn’t know YouTube had stores can you give me the locations to one here in Washington DC?

  16. LouLou August 7, 2011

    @czar You can not discredit r&b by talking about sales. One thing that you can not do is talk about Brandy. So many r&b and other singers give her credit for her vocals and arrangements. She can never be discarded.

  17. Kellymotivation August 7, 2011

    @THEDIMPLEPUPPET

    I am unapologetic to what I said because I was intentional.

  18. SelenaFabulousGomezFan August 7, 2011

    Ugh who cares about numbers? Tweet, Ashanti, Cassie, and Ameriie are still my girls. Ciara too 🙂

  19. SelenaFabulousGomezFan August 7, 2011

    The only new blood out there is Keri, and her bitter ass needs to sit.

  20. Thedimplepuppet August 7, 2011

    @ Sam you mean ‘Cab Ride’ not Taxi.
    – You (I love love love this one)
    – Call Me
    – Turn The Lights Off (So underrated)
    – I’m Done
    – Smoking Cigarettes
    – Best Friend
    So many great songs welcome back Humming Bird~

  21. Thedimplepuppet August 7, 2011

    Sending @KellyMotivation a *** cyber hug *** & some *** d***/p**** *** 🙂

  22. MISHKA August 7, 2011

    “All y’all” is still one of my favoutite jams.

    Timbaland and her should just refresh the song and re-release it.

  23. Kellymotivation August 7, 2011

  32. ヅ•·.·´¯`·.·•-ΛALEXISR-BAHAMAS♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ★ ☆ ✰ T.I.P.•·.·´¯`·.·•ヅ August 7, 2011

    Can’t wait!

  33. nice_gurl August 8, 2011

    Yes!!! Old R&B artists coming back is the best thing ever. Doesn’t matter about numbers and charts, they’re releasing way better music that people don’t support and instead buy LMFAO and Justin Bieber.

  34. theman August 8, 2011

    Brandy’s albums were atleast certified though, she probably didn’t sell what she scould have or should have. But before this last album she released the other ones were atleasted certified gold or platinum. She’ll comeback strong. Tweet will have her fans that will get her music, the ones that enjoy her music.

  35. lola August 8, 2011

    Czar
    LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I completely agree.

    I am really sick and tired of these washed up stars, has beens, never was or one hit wonders saying they’re releasing an album and have like 10 pushbacks and never even release the album. A lot of these women have been in the game for years without a new album or with consistant flops and need to sit down and realize it’s over.

    Christina Milian
    Brandy
    Cassie
    Teairra Mari
    Ciara
    Teyana Taylor
    Ashanti
    Amerie (even though I love her)
    Toni Braxton

    and many more. Can we get a new set of female singers and male singers who can actually sing and will do something different?

  36. JP August 8, 2011

    OMG! Tweet is so underrated! Love her music. Tweet, if you release it baby, Imma buy it.

    So excited for new music from Brandy and Tweet!

  42. jg August 9, 2011
