Video: Tweet – Neva Shouda Left Ya


With her new album Charlene finally in stores, Tweet returns with the fresh visuals for her latest single “Neva Shouda Left Ya.”

The Derek Blanks-directed video for the breezy break-up-to-make-up song finds the R&B songstress at the hair and nail salon where she sees that her ex has made it as a model/celebrity. Tweet begins to wonder if she made the right choice by dumping him.

“It’s my fault, you’re probably happy now / I wish I gave us a chance to grow / I realize now, that I made a mistake, and I neva shoulda left ya,” she sings. Eventually, Tweet gets his attention during a performance, but will he take her back?

Peep the video below, and pick up Charlene in stores now.

Exclusive: Tweet Talks New Album ‘Charlene,’ Transition from Past Music, Dream Collaboration and More!

It’s been over a decade since the world was introduced to the buttery-brown songstress known as Tweet, but other than the content she’s singing about, not much has changed about the singer. From her sweet and sultry voice to her gorgeous appearance, the now 45-year-old is still as captivating now as she was during her 2004 debut.

Charting at No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot 100 with her debut album, Southern Hummingbird, and No. 17 with her follow-up It’s Me Again, the singer-songwriter saw much success with singles such as “Oops (Oh My),” “Call Me,” and “Turn Da Lights Off” in the early 2000s. With all the success, collaborations from top artists, and praise from the R&B world, we were all left confused when the Grammy-nominated artist seemingly disappeared and deprived us of consistently releasing new music.

Aside from a few buzz single releases here and there and her 2013 5-track EP Simply Tweet, fans of the frequent Missy Elliott collaborator, have been left wanting more of what Tweet had given them so long ago.

Now, three years after her last project, many ups and downs, a grown daughter, and grandson later, Tweet has ended her hiatus and delivered her long anticipated third album, Charlene. Aptly titled to reflect her birth name and her going back to her roots, the new album delivers the soulful, heartfelt, and relatable vocals that we’ve been waiting on.

Taking the time out of her busy promotional tour schedule to chat with us, Tweet exclusively talked with us about her reemergence into the music industry, the new music, who she would like to work with in the future, how her faith has assisted her transition, and much more.

List: The Best of February – Top 12 Records


It’s incredible to think that February 2016 has all of the capability to be labeled as the best month of the year, and we’re nowhere near done! From Beyoncé commanding all the ladies into “Formation” to Tweet and Missy Elliott’s re-connection on “Somebody Else Will,” the year’s shortest month (even on a leap year) supplied some really good music.

In addition to the music supplied, February brought along one of the most memorable Black History Month’s in recent years. With notable Grammy performances, Oscar snubs, and apparent riots against those standing up for the culture, this Black History Month was absolutely a little more “lit” than usual and our appreciation for it was the same.

With all of that in mind and brought forth to your immediate memory, get into our “Best of February – Top 12 Records” list below!

Missy and Tweet have worked together several times over the years. Beyond “Oops,” the duo linked up on “Turn da Lights Off,” “Things I Don’t Mean,” and “Thugman.” Listen to their latest collaboration “Somebody Else Will” below and cop Charlene on Feb. 26.
