Sevyn Streeter - I Like It

After the quiet fizzle of Richgirl, the super girl group whispered to be "the new Destiny's Child", (they even borrowed choreographer Frank Gatson) Sevyn has been behind the scenes crafting songs for R&B stars Brandy ("Slower" from critically acclaimed Two Eleven) and Kelly Rowland (Keep It Between Us).

Finding a place under Chris Brown's CBE wing, Sevyn, recently inked a solo deal with Atlantic Records. The ink is barely dry and already we have "I Like It," a taste of her first official offering from her forthcoming CBE/Atlantic debut.

"I Like It" finds Sevyn assuring her lover that "we go through some things but I can't stop loving you." The single treads typical ride or die chick R&B territory over a breezy mid-tempo beat but Sevyn's voice soars above the simple lyrics. Her playfulness on lyrics like "if you call your man your boo and you like and love him too" is reminiscent of Beyonce.

Do you like it?
