Curvy Diva premieres Afrobeat single on mom's birthday
Yanique 'Curvy Diva' Barrett is excited to share the first release from her upcoming EP with the world this week.
The single called Eleganza Remix is a collaboration with trending Nigerian based Afrobeat artiste Solid Star and is a remake of his original single released more than a year ago.
The remix adds the saucy and sultry sound of Yanique’s vocals to his masculine melody and definitely showcases another dimension of her artiste ability.
"The EP will showcase my ability to tap into different flows and sounds that my fans have never heard before and that's why it's called Underestimated," Yanique shared
Eleganza Remix being premiered on Yanique's mom’s birthday is also a big deal to the artiste; she wanted to give a tribute to her late mom who supported her career even though it went against the grain of their strict Seventh Day Adventist upbringing.
"Doing this premiere on her birthday means so much to me because even though she never followed up dancehall she always believed I could do anything I set my mind to; this my way of letting her know that I'm gonna continue to make her proud of me in everything I do," Yanique added
The Eleganza Remix will premiere on Yanique’s Instagram LIVE today. The Underestimated EP will have seven tracks with a mix of Afrobeat, Dancehall, R&B, Reggae and Trap sound. Curvy Diva is looking at releasing the entire project early next year.
