The talented singer was just playing around in the studio, but we'd pay for an album of Tamia-Drake covers!
Don’t get it twisted. Tamia still has a beautiful voice and can hit notes like she did 20 years ago.
The singer, who recently posted a video of her crew playing around in the studio, proved this with an amazing medley of recent hits. But instead of singing her own songs, she belted out some Drake hits that included “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and “Fake Love.”
Vibing out with her is singer Shep Crawford and piano player Ryan Gray Hawken.
But remixing current hits with her R&B flow is something Mrs. Grant Hill does on the regular. In a video posted on March 31, she sings Rihanna’s “Stay” as her husband of 18 years plays the piano.
“R&B doesn’t get as much support as a lot of other genres,” she said in an interview with Billboard. “I do believe there’s a lot of great R&B out there. If we’re speaking mainstream, it doesn’t get the platform that other genres do, and it is a shame. The more we support it, the more people will demand that R&B gets a better platform and people will get the opportunity to perform at things like the Billboard [Music] Awards.”
Tamia is currently working on her seventh studio album after releasing Love Life in 2015. She’s also set to perform with Joe on May 20 at the Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie, TX.
[MUSIC] What can parents do, or wh, any recommendations, maybe resources, or, you know you mentioned earlier, maybe this may not have been the best way to handle it. What do we do? What do we do in those moments where we're afraid and you just want to ask because you know how the how the situations such as that can escalate how how if you have any recommendations [UNKNOWN] on that approach. I mean I'm not a parent Hm mm So I don't really feel comfortable telling people how to approach their children Hm mm But would I would say is that you know. I do believe the wrong conversation a lot. A lot of it is about parents preventing their children from being abused. The problem is Freddie Gray just made eye contact with two police officers on a bicycle and then he ran away. So no matter what kind of person he was, the real issue is the police. They need some behavioral adjustments as far as I'm concerned because there are so many times when they overreact, where they say that they thought they were gonna be killed, you know, the, the you know, it's just, I feel like it's just out of control, and so I don't quite know how parents can get involved in this but I do feel like we need to reframe the question Tamia, do you ever have conversations with your children about police, and behave, and, and that interaction if they may be approached or find themselves in a certain situation? My girls are very young at this age. Mm-hm. But you know, it's, it's, it's difficult as a parent, to, to, your job is to protect them from the world. Right. And now, with the digital age and things like that, it's becoming a lot harder for us to watch everything they do. That is true. And so I think, you know, as a parent, when you see them doing something or going down a road they shouldn't, your first instinct is to protect them and take them out of that situation. So It's constant. You're constantly monitoring and constantly trying to watch them and, I'm sure, as they get older, it becomes that much more difficult. Mm-hm. You know, watching, and they become teenagers and have some sort of independence. You know, my girls are seven and, and 13. So, I'm an eagle eyed mom right now [CROSSTALK] but it is becoming a lot harder because, you know, the world has access to them, and you know, it's, so you have to sort of watch everything that they do. On a whole nother level then, as you mentioned with social and digital media. So, perhaps, it's just making sure the lines of communication stay open. As much as possible at all times. Absolutely, absolutely. And not only do you have to watch your children, but you have to watch other people as well. That is true. So, I mean, when we have discussions about life in the world, that, you know, it's not just about how they carry themselves, but it's making sure that other people are carrying themselves the proper way as well. Right. [MUSIC]
