Call Me Crazy, But...
Label: Atlantic Records
Sevyn Streeter spent years in the trenches -- joining ill-fated groups RichGirl and Tom Gurl 4; penning hits for Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande and others -- before a Chris Brown remix of "It Won't Stop" gave her a long-awaited solo hit. Call Me Crazy But... proves her writing chops when she breaks down the strained relationships of "Shattered," "nEXt," and "B.A.N.S." (acronym for "B*tch *ss N*gg*s"). With a voice overly reminiscent of Kelly Rowland and Keri Hilson, time will tell if she can soar without a C-Breezy assist. But she's finally in the game, and that's all that matters now.
