CBE/Atlantic recording artist Sevyn Streeter has announced details of her eagerly awaited debut EP. “Call Me Crazy, But…” arrives at the iTunes Store and other digital retailers on Tuesday, November 5th.
“Call Me Crazy, But…” is highlighted by the new single, “It Won’t Stop,” which is currently number 11 and climbing its way up to the top 10 at Urban radio outlets nationwide. A new spin on “It Won’t Stop” — now featuring her longtime collaborator Chris Brown. What’s more, the companion video for “It Won’t Stop” — directed by and starring the GRAMMY®-winning Brown, with a special guest appearance by Portland Trail Blazers forward Dorell Wright — will premiere this Thursday, October 10th on BET’s 106 & Park (check your local listings.)
Sevyn will celebrate the release of “Call Me Crazy, But…” by joining forces with fellow Atlantic artist K. Michelle on “BET Music Matters Presents The Rebellious Soul Tour with K. Michelle and Special Guest Sevyn Streeter.” The tour — presented by BET’s “Music Matters,” the network’s influential campaign highlighting the next generation of superstars — gets underway November 4th in San Francisco and then continues through early December (see itinerary below). The labelmates will make a special guest appearance this Tuesday, October 8th on BET’s 106 & Park to discuss the upcoming tour (check your local listings.)

Having spent much of her career behind the scenes, Sevyn Streeter is now taking some spotlight for herself. The Florida-based artist has proven an in-demand writer and vocalist, called upon by a remarkable roster of top studio superstars, including Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, Babyface, and many others, with tracks featured on albums by such icons as Mary J. Blige and Alicia Keys.
In 2011, Chris Brown’s massively successful “F.A.M.E.” saw Sevyn co-writing a number of the album’s biggest singles — including “Next To You (Feat. Justin Bieber),” “Wet The Bed (Feat. Ludacris),” and the million-selling smash, “Yeah 3x” — while her distinctive voice can be heard on such tracks as the top 5 R&B/Hip-Hop hit, “She Got You.” “F.A.M.E.” proved a massive pop sensation, receiving RIAA platinum certification and the 2012 GRAMMY® Award for “Best R&B Album.” What’s more, the phenomenal success of “Yeah 3x” and “Wet The Bed” earned Sevyn a prestigious pair of ASCAP Awards, acknowledging the tracks as among the year’s most-performed songs. Brown has since enlisted Sevyn’s songwriting services and vocal talents for 2012’s #1 blockbuster, “FORTUNE” — for which Sevyn received an additional ASCAP Award, as well as his upcoming album, “X.” Among her other recent successes, Sevyn has co-written some of this year’s top tracks, including Brown’s “Fine China,” Tamar Braxton’s “All The Way Home,” Kelly Rowland’s “Gone,” and Ariana Grande’s chart-topping hit, “The Way (Feat. Mac Miller),” which soared to #1 on the iTunes Store within eight hours of its initial release.
Currently readying her long anticipated CBE/Atlantic Records debut, Sevyn has now begun establishing herself as a genuine R&B star in her own right. Her 2012 debut single, “I Like It,” earned extensive radio airplay and over 2 million individual views at Sevyn’s official YouTube channel. The follow-up, entitled “It Won’t Stop,” arrived earlier this year and soon ascended to the top 40 on Billboard’s “Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” chart.
