R&B Singer Tyra B Is Back With A Brand New Video And She Is Ready To Tease
Regarding the inspiration of the song and video, Tyra had this to say, “TEASE is a song that everyone can relate to because it’s about wanting something you can’t have. Gay or straight, we all experience the same relationship games.”
Tyra Bolling, better known as Tyra B, is a dedicated singer-songwriter who is no stranger to the music industry. She’s best known for her Top 40 R&B singles “Country Boy,” “Still in Love,” and “Givin’ Me a Rush“, which is her biggest single to date.
In 2005, her singles “Country Boy” and “Still in Love” became Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop chart without having any support from any label. She worked with Chingy on the remix of “Country Boy,” produced by PrettyBoy and Bradd Young. A second single “Get No Ooh Wee” was also released later that year.
In 2007, she began to work on her second studio album Past Due which was preceded by the single “Givin’ Me a Rush”, her biggest hit to date. It peaked at #2 on BET’s 106 & Park, while being named #36 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop Singles and #22 on the Bubbling Under Singles chart. A follow-up single “Get It Poppin'” featuring Soulja Boy was released in January 2008. The album Past Due was pushed back several times with production by Cool & Dre, Justice League and Soulja Boy. Due to label conflicts this album was not released. Tyra B later collaborated with 2 Pistols on the track “Candy Coated Diamonds” released in 2008.
With her sexuality always being questioned from the start, Bolling had this to say, “I want to overcome the stigma of homosexuality within the music industry, especially for black women and help open the door for others just like me.”
Currently, she is working on her debut EP, Tysexual which is set to be released independently in the fall of 2015. The album’s first single “Tease” co-written by Tyra and produced by D.Bryant was released on March 31, 2015 and now available on iTunes, Google and Amazon.
