This year marks the 20th anniversary of Tweet‘s debut album ‘Southern Hummingbird’ – an LP many have deemed a certified classic.
Powered in earnest by its hypnotic lead single ‘Oops…(Oh My),’ the project was also home to fan favorites such as ‘Boogie 2Nite’ and ‘Smoking Cigarettes.’
And while the album is held in the highest esteem, its accompanying campaign has long been a sore spot for fans of the songstress.
For, despite the LP being packed to the brim with quality jams, little else was given the fully promoted single treatment beyond ‘Oops.’
Even more grating, Tweet would reveal in later interviews that there were music videos shot that never saw the light of day.
Two decades on, the songbird has delighted fans by hatching a preview of the visuals for ‘Boogie’ and ‘Cigaettes.’

Sigh. What could have been!
That said, the songs – much like their housing album – have stood the test of time and remain a beacon of R&B brilliance.
One hit wonder like Lauryn Hill💅🏾 I heard she never late for her show coz no one is asking for one 🤣😂🤣
Smoking Cigarettes is STILL my JAM 🎶🤳🏽💯
I’ve always enjoyed Tweets voice!!!
Her first album in an underrated classic !
A very beautiful and talented woman who deserved more success.
The unreleased video is absolute cringe tho. Glad she shelved it.
My Fav Tweet song is “I’m Done”.
Two underrated classics!
How the f***
At this point I’m ready for Alicia to drop the “Put It In A Love Song” video to revive her career.
This s*** is just sad. You put all of that effort into something just to not release it.
