This morning, still in bed, trying my best to open my eyes I noticed that nothing had changed outside:still the same rain as yesterday, the day before, last week…I already understood I would need more than my cereals to get me out of bed. I then thought of my brother, he’s like Huggy Bear in Starsky and Hutch, but his thing is music. Last week my bro (or Huggy Bear if you prefer) told me about Rye Rye, an American singer.
The word singer isn’t really appropriate, she’s more of a rapper than a singer, anyways, you’ll figure out by yourselves, you’re old enough to make up your mind alone.
Here is a little biography of our lady:
Ryeisha Berrain (that’s her real name) comes from Baltimore. Thanks to her sister she met the rapper Blaqstarr with whom she worked on her early materials, she then met M.I.A with whom she’ll define her style.(Do I really have to introduce you to the London storm? ok, for the uncultivated ones, here is her myspace). Rye Rye toured with M.I.A during the fall and winter 2007and early 2008; she also featured on one of M.I.A’s remix of her song ‘paper plane’ with Afrikan boy. She was supposed to have her debut album released in March 2009 but it seems that she needed some more time…ok,let’s be patient then; what’s sure is that she’ll be the first artist signed to M.I.A.’s record label N.E.E.T and you can already listen to her first single ‘Bang’(featuring her friend, co-worker, patron of arts; call her as you prefer) as it’s on the ‘Fast and Furious’ motion picture soundtrack.
I let you make up your mind, I’ve said enough. Here is a video made with her friend Blakstarr (the video is just here, if you click on the link, I say that for the ones who are slow at getting things, a bit like me in fact); here’s the music, and as my friend Pierre says “pump it up”!
