R&B/soul singer Syleena Johnson has been one of those artists you just can’t get enough of since she first burst onto the scene with her mature sound and her stories of love and life back in 2001. For the last decade, she’s been known to give us passionate records that tell the tales of all kinds of successful (and not so successful) relationships we all may have encountered.

You’ll probably remember her smoldering debut “I Am Your Woman,” a tune penned by R. Kelly on her first project Chapter I: Love, Pain & Forgiveness. Since then, she’s offered the world of R&B/soul music four albums that have fallen short of mainstream popularity in some cases, but her devoted fan base knows where to find her every step of the way.
Now she’s seemingly back in the habit and ready to pay homage to the best of the bunch. We hear she’s been promising old school soul covers and tributes left and right on Twitter these days and her legion of R&B/soul music fans (affectionately known as the “Syleegions”) are making sure she holds true to those promises.
Check out what she recently put together just for us and the special message tagged along with it. If you’re not following Syleena Johnson, now’s the time to do so. Keep up with her via the following official links.
“Another tribute to my Syleegion on Twitter. This song is a cover of Betty Everett who is most famous for “The Shoop Shoop Song”. This recording reunites me and my father, Syl Johnson for his upcoming project tentatively titled “The Rebirth Of Soul” featuring artists of today singing vintage soul music. Originally recorded in 1969, this is Rhythm & Blues in its purest form. It’s a rough mix. Enjoy and thank you all so much.” — Syleena (@Syleena_Johnson)
