YoYo Gone ‘Fearless’ with Ray J, Keri Hilson and Beyonce ?

Former Miss Rap Supreme host and Hip Hop artist Yo-Yo has pulled in everyone from Keri Hilson to Ray J and Raheem DeVaughn for her latest album “My Journey To Fearless”. The album, Yo-Yo’s first release since the hit VH1 reality series Miss Rap Supreme, is also the first project to be released under the former “You Can’t Play With My Yo-Yo” rapper’s digital label, YoYo Music. “I’ve been doing it since I was seventeen and it was just time to come back and time to get up,” Yo-Yo tells Singersroom in an exclusive Black Music Month feature interview. In the same interview, YoYo took time out to discuss the state of not only the Hip Hop industry but R&B as well. Sharing her love for artists, including Ray J, Keri Hilson and Beyonce, Yo-Yo admits that there are some hard working and deserving artists in music today. Speaking of lauded “Love Experience” singer/songwriter Raheem DeVaughn, Yo-Yo says “Oh my God that guy is so talented. Once he hears the music and gets in the studio, it’s just magic”. But Yo-Yo, somewhat surprising, gave major kudos to “In A Perfect World” songwriter-turned-singer Keri Hilson. Hilson, whose album “In A Perfect World” remains in the top 20 nearly three months after its release, has been successful both in front of and behind the mic — a fact Yo-Yo admits is good to see, especially for a female artist in a male dominated industry. “I was going for Keri Hilson because, before she came out with her first single I knew that she was a wonderful writer and I loved her style. I loved her aggressiveness,” says Yo Yo. For more of Yo-Yo’s interview, where she also talks about Beyonce’s success, her talent search for new artists and the internet’s effect on music, CLICK HERE.
