Call in to speak with the host
Syleena Johnson was born to sing. Her honey-toned, down-home bluesy and soul drenched vocals have always possessed a mysterious richness and maturity well beyond her years. Vibe Magazine has described Syleena’s sound as “ distinctive, sometimes sweet, a little tart and always strong” while USA Todaydeclares she possesses “a gorgeous voice and evocative storytelling.”The highly sought-after, versatile and dynamic R&B/soul vocalist, who has collaborated with Kanye West (“All Falls Down,” “Suddenly/Bulls-Eye”), R. Kelly (“Hypnotic,” “I am Your Woman,” “Guess What), Common (“Suddenly/Bulls-Eye”), Jermaine Dupri (“Classic Love Song”), Twista (“Self Destruction”) among numerous others, will release her long-awaited new CD, Chapter V: Underrated on Shanachie Entertainment September 27, 2011. “My fans gave me the name,” shares Syleena about her CD title. “I am currently in a place where I just wanted to go into the studio and record what felt good. When you do this, you begin to bleed the true artistry that is in your heart and soul.”
It's good to talk.
