More power to Naturi Naughton! Sitting down with People magazine, the singer turned actress discusses Power, her upcoming album, and 3LW!
Full story below…
After joining 3LW and churning out R&B hits such as ‘No More‘, ‘I Do‘, and ‘Playas Gon Play‘, Naughton was ‘devastatingly’ ousted from the group, and has since made allegations of favoritism, colorism, and catfights.
Now, speaking out about her experience of her girl group days, she states that her upcoming album will embrace ‘some of the feelings’ she ‘had after being ousted’ from the group.
“It was a tumultuous breakup. However, I do look back and remember, ‘Oh, I was on the TRL tour, opening up for Destiny’s Child.”
Going on, she adds:
“I think a lot of people that know me now, who even watch Power, don’t realize how long my journey has been. This has been since I was 15 and I’ve been in the business for 20 years. I look back at that experience of being in a girl group, although it had some learning experiences that were growing pains, it just showed me what it takes to make it in this industry.
Trust is a huge part of it and I think in that group things just didn’t go right.”
Speaking of her upcoming album, which she is presently working on, the singer declares it an R&B album ‘fused with a little bit of that Hip-Hop’.
“I want to bring back that ’90s era vibe with people really singing, I’m excited to just tell my story through song because a lot the songs I d talk about feelings I had after being ousted from 3LW.”
One producer the singer/actress says she’s working with is ‘Mayor of R&B’, Troy Taylor. Taylor has been credited as working with the likes of K. Michelle, Keyshia Cole and Whitney Houston among many others.
Potentially bothered by Naturi’s interview, ex-3LW group member Kiely Williams took to Instagram to share the following post yesterday:
In any case, it’s an exciting time for Naturi! Since her departure from 3LW, the star has gone on to become a huge success as Tasha St. Patrick in the hit-show ‘Power‘ and new spin off ‘Power Book 2: Ghost’ which airs Sundays at 9pm on the Starz network.
