New Music: Sevyn Streeter – Say It (Tory Lanez Remix)


Sevyn is 2 for 2 this week.

While yesterday brought forward a previously unreleased track featuring Emanny, the songstress has now taken her turn at Tory Lanez buzzing single, “Say It“.  Challenging herself over the weekend by saying: “I fux with Tory Lanez ‘say it’ record. Might need to flip it and give the female response,” Sevyn has definitely accepted and passed the challenge.

Claiming that she’s here to make the ladies proud by talking wild on this sh*t, Sevyn professes her love for the man that she wants so badly. Singing out, “If you say I’m on your mind, you gone need to spend more time to prove it / ‘Cause I want you too, baby,” Sevyn provides her melodic take on the Brownstone sampled song, that has been building in popularity.

She wasn’t the only one to recently cover the song either, Ed Sheeran surprised fans with a unique cover of it over the weekend, uploading his remake to a Soundcloud account named “alright-tory-mate.”

Take a listen to Sevyn’s response below!

Sevyn Shoulda Been There

Sevyn Streeter is back!  While she may have pushed her anticipated debut album On The Verge back a little longer, the R&B vixen isn’t leaving her fans out to dry.  Revealing her plans to release a brand new EP while at ESSENCE Music Festival earlier this month, today the Floridian releases the title track “Shoulda Been There” featuring her boo thang, B.o.B.

“The last year and a half has been quite the roller coaster for me. Incredible highs and some dark lows. I wrote these songs when I wasn’t in the best space,” said Sevyn. “Like I ALWAYS say, ‘I don’t write the songs just for me.’ I believe this collection of music can help someone else. So instead of me pretending, denying, and being embarrassed about what I went through, I’m choosing to put these songs out. As a creative being, I just had to release this music before my debut album in order to really move on with my life! So……consider this new project Shoulda Been There Pt. 1 the prelude or an appetizer before the main course. I hope you enjoy and please know that more is on the way.”

Shoulda Been There (Part 1: The Prelude)‘ will be released on July 17. Check out the official lyric video for the title track, and full tracklisting below!
