She’s Coming! Tweet Confirms Her New Album is Finished

Published: Sunday 27th Jan 2019 by Rashad

When R&B songstress Tweet burst onto the scene this month 17 years ago with her now signature hit, ‘Oops (Oh My),’ many assumed she was an overnight success.  That assumption, as she recently detailed in BET’s hit web series, ‘Finding BET,’ couldn’t be further from the truth.

Between years of working with the group Sugah before it disbanded to doing background vocals for Missy Elliott and other artists before her breakthrough, Tweet’s (born Charlene Keys) rise to fame was far from swift.  That point made the velocity of her fall from the public eye that much more surprising.

Ever the eternal optimist, Keys recently took to BET to dish on life post the success of her debut album, ‘Southern Hummingbird,’ which included a battle with depression, alcohol abuse, and more before she re-emerged with 2016’s ‘Charlene.’  Also thrilling with news of the set’s soon-to-come follow-up project, look inside to hear the 48-year-old talk on this and more:

    I’ve always liked Tweet. I have all her albums. I’m here for this!

      I like Tweet. Her last album came out in 2016. She is a great songwriter and unique vocalist. I welcome any new music from her and I hope she tours this summer.

        TROLLmine I AGREE! I hope she tours this summer tooooooo! If she does you definitely need to collaborate with Keyshia Cole and do another “fish plates and coloring books” stand outside of the venue like you did last time! #iSupportTrollmine

    I enjoyed watching this. Before even her saying.. I could feel that some songs on her 1st two albums are not the music she wanted to make on her own.. She is a soulful Tweety bird and that is who she is. She needs to continue being so true to herself. Plus, she still looks smoking hot after all of these years! I know you’re reading this Tweet. I love you. Can’t wait for the new album!

    she has a strong voice & raw talent, but absolutely NO ONE is going to support

    she has a strong voice & raw talent, but absolutely NO ONE is going to support this forthcoming project. the masses do not know her, her music or brand. she is a yesteryear star & that is still being kind.

    • Caleb January 27, 2019

      Maybe people will remember her from the movie Honey.

      You have to be the most negative entity on this blog. You’re life must be harsh and you must not have accomplished any of your goals and that hurts you. You can still do it miss thing, no need to be a bitter jealous gay, give it a shot.

      • Brent Christopher January 27, 2019

        LOL! I have actually accomplished many of my life goals — personally & professinally. I stem from a middle class family where both of my parents worked hard to provide us with all of our needs & many of our wants. Alongside my husband, we intend to do the same for our children. I am financially stable, emotionally happy, socially well known & mentally focused. I am culturally conscious & very in tune with the struggles of my people. I have created a very successful life for myself… and still, I am entitled to express thoughts, feelings & ideas that may not be shared by those who sit behind me. Do you somewhat understand? A little?…

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️ Not TROLLmine nor TRASHmine January 28, 2019

      Naw your commentary and essays defebdinging uourself clearly show your insecure. You wanted to be something but ur not so you just go on these rambling long negative critiques of everyone. Your bitter and upset and it shows.

    Tweet is so talented but absolutely no one is checking for this… =(

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️ Not TROLLmine nor TRASHmine January 28, 2019

      Like Monica’s stuff. But also, like Monica’s stuff nobody is checking for, as long as those who like her are satisfied, that’s all that matters. And, at least tweet is ALWAYS on key and doesn’t yodel

  7. Jeans January 27, 2019

    Omg yessssss! One of my favorite artists! I have all her albums and each one is golden. I live for her harmonies!!!!!

    • thanosoftitan January 27, 2019

      I agree. I have all of her albums as well and I’m looking forward to purchasing Tweet’s next album. I appreciate all things Tweet.

  8. K January 27, 2019

    I will support

  9. Jasmine Da Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️ Not TROLLmine nor TRASHmine January 27, 2019

    She always had and will make amazing music. Her first album is a friggin classic. Bring it on baby

    • Brent Christopher January 27, 2019

      your vocabulary is very limited. you speak like a 14 year old girl. seriously.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️ Not TROLLmine nor TRASHmine January 28, 2019

        Uh oh. I’ve struck a chord with MISS BRENTASIA ! Look girl, it’s not my fault you’re a bitter jealous gay, you need to look within and figure out why you’re so mad. Because all ur posts say bitter.. angry.. mean.. judgemental.. never made it… cüñty bottom…. and I’m not here for that

  10. Brandyfan87 January 27, 2019

    Tweet is a gem!! I can’t wait to hear this new album!????

  11. thanosoftitan January 27, 2019

    Love Twee! So Looking forward to her new music. I have all three of her albums and her first two albums are fire! Seeing her in this video put a smile on my face.

  12. Olusheyi January 27, 2019

    I love Tweet and can’t wait to hear her new music

    • Jeans January 27, 2019

      I cannot wait for this!!!

  13. Detruth January 28, 2019

    She looks beautiful aging in reverse. This answered alot of questions I was a tweet super fan and I knew she recorded a vid for smoking cigarettes and I always wondered why it wasn’t released. I also didn’t know why her album love tweet never came out and she explained that too! She could have been bigger but they chose not to promote her
