Taking to social media Tuesday (March 7), the GRAMMY-winning songbird – who’s previously soared to critical acclaim for Pop and Gospel offerings – is now looking to roost in R&B territory.

Unveiling the sizzling cover artwork for the single ‘Missin U,’ Tori revealed her new look alongside the announcement the Jon Bellion-produced tune would hit digital shelves on March 17.  She even gave her 4.1 million Instagram followers a sneak listen (seen and heard in the video above).

Her first original solo release since 2020, the Epic Records offering comes as the first taste of the new music set to line her forthcoming, yet-titled debut album on the label.

    The fools out here actin like they don’t know 🙄🙄🙄

    Whilst not an “entertainer” like Janet, JLo and Rihanna, Tori’s voice without a single instrument to accompany her could bury so many of your faves.

    The difficulty is that she doesn’t fit the mould of oversēxêd pop kitten getting caught up in one media scandal after another whilst changing the man on her arm for the latest media man boy on the daily.

    Tori is raw talent and unproblematic and labels failed to sell her in the “pop” lane and she’s too alternative for the strait R&B lane so they struggle to market her in a way that’s gonna sell and get the casual listeners attention.

    Wishing her luck on the new label, hopefully it’s not too late and they know what to do with her (but this single sounds like a cute B-side and already lacks “hit” appeal. 🤷🏾‍♂️).

      She is BLACK FISHING.

      That is very PROBLEMATIC since Black celebrities are often called out for lightening their skin.

      • Cuntee March 8, 2023

        Tori is biracial… white mama, black daddy….

      • True Tea March 8, 2023

        Biracial? More like transracial from the photos I’ve seen.

        Call it what you want!!!

    Looking forward to hearing it

    • marilyn monh-O-E ® 👠(#1 DIVA) March 8, 2023

      Hunnie u mean Paula Abdul?💅🏾

    • Delishis, u look like a man March 8, 2023

      Her voice is magic.

      I can do without the tanned make up but she is mixed so she may tan easily and get dark.

      She’s gorgeous.

    She shoulda stuck with the acoustic sound. She coulda been the white version of India Arie.

    Comment Removed: Such Remarks Will Not Be Tolerated.

    • Are You Kidding Me? March 8, 2023

      Really TGJ? But you allow remarks wishing people death, violence and being racist?

  9. UHoesFunny March 8, 2023

    Blackfishing 💀

    • True Tea March 8, 2023

      The smoke everyone has for Beyonce when her skin tone is lighter…keep that same energy for Non-Black women who cosplay as Black.

      I swear the OUTRAGE be so inconsistent…

      Only 1 individual called her out compared to 100s who usually call out Beyonce

      You B*tches CREDIBILITY is on life support.

      Get it together!

    • Blackmessiah March 8, 2023

      How is she black fishing her dad is black from Jamaica

      • True Tea March 8, 2023

        Because she goes from European Scandinavian to Racially ambiguous Black/Latina, lol

        It’s given Transracial…

        You know…the trendy term a WW would use to normalize their SELF HATE

        While the BW is considered Mentally ill.

    • Credits March 8, 2023

      First thing I thought when I saw this cover.

  10. Credits March 8, 2023

    This song isn’t giving R&B in that snippet. But she can sang her face off, there’s no denying that.

  11. Detruth March 9, 2023
