Trina Ditches Raunchy Image; Embraces Popier Sound & Style

Published: Tuesday 27th Mar 2012 by TGJ

Risque Miami rapper Trina plans to take the Nicki Minaj-route with her next album by ditching Hip-Hop and going straight Pop!

In an effort to crossover, the ‘Always’ MC plans to tone down her bootylicious image and embrace the current dance/pop trend thats taking over music.

Making an appearance on ‘Style By June’ Trina says of her new revamp, “I completely want to transform my everything. I just want a new look from the inside out. I’m doing a new album; the sound is different. The sound is more poppy, it’s crossover. Hip-Hop is where it started, and I love Hip Hop, but I’m totally at a different phase. I’m surpass the raunchiness. I was very raw and provocative.”

    I don’t know what took her so long to figure this out. Forever keeping a hood image/sound is why she stays performing at night clubs and college gymnasiums. However… LOL, I don’t think she needs to stray too far from her original sound or it will not come off as authentic. I think R&B/pop features will help! Just some radio-friendly songs like she had with Kelly Rowland or Keri Hilson.

    I love it.,and trina career is nowhere near dead.

    She’s been independent since 2007. Glad she starting to comeback into the mainstream scene.
