Recently discussed with Necole Bitchie, Tweet states why she took a break from the music industry and that she is excited about her new album.
“The songs are already done. Now we’re just putting on the final touches and it’ll be here in September. It’s called Simply Tweet and it’s just me. I’m branching out of my own. I’m not under the wings of anybody else. It’s a new space in my life. It’s just different…different love, different situation…very different than the place I was in when I recorded Southern Hummingbird. The single is called ‘Enough’, and it’s for my ladies…and that’s all I can tell you about that.”
“The last album was It’s Me Again, in 2005 and I think I took a good break. I didn’t get the support that I thought I deserved on that last album. I was feeling overwhelmed and decided to get my life together, get my relationship with God back on track, start spending more time with daughter.”
“I’m happier now. I know who I am as a woman and an artist. Now I want to let women know that they can do it too. They can find that happiness, they don’t have to stay in unhappy situations.”
“I was definitely unhappy with the record company,” says Tweet. “When I first turned in the last album it was all me. But being that Elektra turned into Atlantic, it was all new people and they didn’t know who I was. They made me take off ½ of my songs to make room for more Hip Hop. I can’t blame anybody because I didn’t stand up for myself. So even when I look back on that period, I blame me.”
I’m glad that Tweet is making a comeback to the music industry and something is telling me she will have one of the most anticipated albums this year along with the group, “No Doubt”.
