When producers Timbaland and Missy Elliot helped launch the Southern Hummingbird Tweet and her solo career in 2002, the music world was shook. With Timbaland’s hypnotic sound and Missy Elliot’s angelic harmony-styled arrangements, this singer was well on her way to superstardom. But wait, Tweet comes from a family of talented musical greatness. Her chart-topping first hit single “Oops (Oh My)” was a huge success in the R&B/Hip Hop genres followed by “Call Me” and “Smoking Cigarettes”. She continued to blaze trails with collaborations and two consecutive albums. In 2013, Tweet recorded her third album entitled Simply Tweet, and it was pure excellence. The five-track recording included a full live band and allowed us to hear her at her finest.
Now here we are 2015, and Tweet ain’t gone nowhere! She’s back with her new single “Won’t Hurt Me.”
We had a chance to sit and share with Tweet at the listening party in November, and she is better than ever. A regal and graceful Tweet is featured on the glamorous cover, conveying an air of soulful sophistication that is also conveyed throughout the album. Charlene is a soulful, candid 15-track R&B masterpiece that reintroduces Tweet’s classic, soothing, stirring and melodic vocals that display her artistry in its truest form. The album not only displays Tweet’s extraordinary vocal abilities but her writing skills as well. “Won’t Hurt Me” is receiving great reviews and has over 300K streams on Spotify to date.
Tweet is beyond excited to be back: “Words can’t express how much I am looking forward to my fans hearing what I have been working on. If they missed me, half as much as I missed them, we are in for a beautiful journey”, Tweet said. “Charlene will illustrate how much my personal and professional experiences have shaped me. I’ve evolved as a woman, and I am wiser now. As an artist, I’ve totally matured vocally.”
Charlene is scheduled to arrive on January 22, 2016. Purchase “Won’t Hurt Me” on iTunes above.
