Sevyn Streeter Reveals She Battled Suicidal Thoughts

Published: Thursday 13th Jul 2017 by David

Sevyn Streeter has revealed that she has overcome bouts of depression and suicidal thoughts as sales of her new LP ‘Girl Disrupted’ rise on digital outlets.

I dealt with depression on a very serious level for like a year-and-a-half, and I never said anything to my fans. Obviously, my mom and my dad and my brother, a few family members, knew about it — but it was really, really hard. I wanted to kill myself, I really did. And through my family, and God and prayer, it turned around.

Stifled by the pressures of achieving success before 30, the vocalist now finds herself on a brighter path thanks to the power of God.

A lot of my depression was triggered by the fact that I’ve given my life to this music, and it’s in a good place, but it’s not exactly where I want it to be. I sacrificed a lot of my childhood for music, I sacrificed a lot of my love life for music.

If something’s making you unhappy, what can you do to change it? That went for people in my life, circumstances and situations — whether it was dealing with work, or dealing with men. I had people in my life that were bringing me more sadness than joy. … I was finally like, it’s not my fault if you wake up on the wrong side of the bed today, but guess what, I don’t need you to change. These are grown people, and so am I. Nobody’s making me deal with anybody that I don’t want deal with, so I made the decision to remove myself from certain situations and certain people that made me feel … heavy.

    Well done on speaking on it girl, I guess the album was therapy. I love Sevyn and want her to win so bad, her pen game is on point, she can sing, dance and she’s pretty – BUT…. how your EP gon’ be better than your album??! The album is a snooze fest, no stand outs, uptempo, nothing new, nothing to grab the public and make then wanna run out and buy it or stick it on repeat for streams. It’s such shame, but it’s bland and a whole album of her tweaked and synthasized vocals is just not it – when we know the girl got pipes. Nothing is going no.1 on this album – happy that she got to express herself and do what she loves – but roll on to then next album.
