    Let’s go I’m rooting for u Nivea!!

      I know Nivea personally and her biggest obstacle in life has been herself. She is unmarketable and I really wish she would have not gotten them tatoos and went back to school to become more polished. She has an amazing talent and has continued to release music independently over the years. I hope she continues to make music and find her self-worth because she is loved by her family, friends, and fans.

    I love Nivea, I remember “okay” coming out in middle school and being the jam. After watching this I walked away with her being the black Britney. I thought that was crazy… the other thing is, it seems like she was on something during this interview because her crying and her body language seems like she was very uncomfortable.

      She honestly looks like she has teeth to big for her mouth like dentures that she never adapted to once she got them done. She also is doing her lips how most people who tries to hold back their cries n remain sane when you really aren’t!!

    She has my respect. That’s all I can say.

    She had a stroke hence why some people think she’s on something ? but she just emotional

    As a R&B/Hip-Hop head that feels like the mid-90s to mid-2000s were the best years for modern day music, it’s nice to see her story in her words, as a lot of people forget that she had an impact on the genre (albeit a minor one). I had actually forgotten about her until this, but I remember LOVING “Danger”, “Don’t Mess With My Man” and “Laundromat” back in the day. I also remember wondering why it seemed like she fell off the face of the earth, but it’s clear that motherhood had a profound impact on her life.
    While I appreciate the hunger and drive she clearly has, part of me thinks it’s best she doesn’t even try to break back into the music scene. You’ve got your kids, you’ve got your memories and tour experiences, but you’ve gotta remember that the music industry was completely different then, and, to be honest, I don’t see that many people even potentially checkin’ for her in 2018. Heck, even Ciara, who Nivea mentioned in the video, is struggling to get back to how massive she was at that time.

      I love her voice. I would welcome any new music from her in my collection. She never really left music. She has been releasing stuff all along. It was just not charting and only marketed to southern audiences.

    If you haven’t checked out her second album, do yourself a favor and listen. She has some great cuts, and the title track is one of my all time favorite records. It’s sad how her label never really supported her when they were sitting on easy hits (25 Reasons, Laundromat, Complicated, Parking Lot, etc). She didn’t even talk about how they held off and didn’t promote Okay for about a year to wait for Ciara to come out. She never really got a fair shot.

    Don’t Mess With My Man is such a classic for early 2000s preteens!

    Only the strong survive in this industry. She decided to chase behind these no-good rappers instead of focusing on her career, and look where that got her. After she got knocked up by Wayne, Jive Records quickly replaced her with Ciara. Nivea had potential but threw it all away. Luckily, she got pregnant by two millionaires so those child support checks are probably nice.

    • Selah September 24, 2018

      This I agree with. Nivea didn’t want it bad enough. It was way too early in her career (at least back then it was) for her to get knocked up. She was easily replaceable to her label, and they did so with Ciara. This thing happened far too often with female artists in the early 2000’s. Poor decisions and bad business deals…..

  9. Caleb September 23, 2018

    I’m confused by the Ciara comparisons in the comments. They aren’t even that similar.

    • CW September 24, 2018

      Ciara was signed to Jive (same label) and brought in ‘crunk and b’ with her Goodies sound that blew up. The problem was Nivea had her Lil Jon record ‘Okay’ ready to go in 2003 before Ciara was ever a thing. Jive pushed Nivea’s album back to 2005 due to Ciara’s success with the sound Nivea had first. Of course they could have coexisted but Jive made Ciara the priority and completely abandoned Nivea.

      • Achooo! September 24, 2018

        Jive had to abandon Nivea during the “Okay” promotion because she got pregnant with her first child as evident in the Okay video. She was no longer marketable and Ciara became the next best thing. Nivea had plenty of hits but made bad personal choices
