NOVEMBER 8, 2019 – Today, certified-platinum recording artist and Billboard chart-topping singer/songwriter Sevyn Streeter released track “WHATCHUSAY” along with a music video, as the first release off of her forthcoming album Drunken Wordz x Sober Thoughtz, via Groundwērk/Entertainment One (eOne) and is set to drop in 2020.
Sensual and audacious, the new track and video gives fans a taste of what to expect on her forthcoming album – an unapologetic, uninhibited, smart woman doing smart business, who is taking matters into her own hands. A departure from her debut album, Girl Disrupted, Drunken Wordz x Sober Thoughtz is her first album as an independent artist and plays on the parallel between the figurative “drunk”, or uninhibited, fearless, sexy, free Sevyn, and the “sober”, or level-headed, clear-minded, focused Sevyn – and at the intersection of the two is a confident, career-driven woman in control of her destiny. “WHATCHUSAY” represents the daring side of Sevyn that fans have never seen before.
“‘WHATCHUSAY’ is what happens when holding somebody down becomes an uneven exchange, when your limit has reached its limit, when your self-love overpowers your ability to stay in a toxic space… THEN, your raw emotions make room for you to speak your TRUTH…even if it ain’t pretty.” – Sevyn Streeter
