**Premiere** Fly Acoustics: Singer Tweet Talks New Album ‘Charlene’, 8-Year Hiatus, Performs Single “Won’t Hurt Me” & more

tweet-fly-acoustics

After a very long music hiatus, our favorite songbird is back and ready to deliver!

Singer/Songwriter Tweet, stopped by Stuff Fly People Like‘s premiere of Fly Acoustics, a music series where artists get personal, share past & present experiences, all while presenting new music, and delivering a LIVE acoustic performance to media conglomerates and fans on-site.

While kicking the segment off, Tweet spoke on why she took time off:

I have been preparing myself for this moment, just getting myself together spiritually after the second album didn’t go too well — I decided to take a break and kinda get my life spiritually together. So, in that I rededicated myself to Christ — so he would orchestrate everything that’s happening now. And, I also signed to a couple of labels, and it just didn’t work out.

Since her last 2005 album, It’s Me Again, Tweet followed up with a new EP 8-years later entitled Simply Tweet.

Tweet’s new forthcoming album Charlene (Jan. 2016) gives us a journey through her written diary, sharing the up and downs of life, and what she was going through within the hiatus.

Tweet also talks about wanting to get back to “real soul music,” that makes you think, that speaks of liberation for women, and just simply that “good feeling.” She even speaks of perhaps doing a full Gospel album one day, per request from her aunt, Juanita before she passed away.

Check out the FULL visual of our very own, ‘Fly Acoustics’ below with a special performance from Tweet of new single “Won’t Hurt Me”:

Tweet’s album ‘Charlene’ drops on January 22, 2016, just a day after her birthday.

We’d like to thank Tweet for kicking off ‘Fly Acoustics’ for us! It was an amazing moment!

FLY Performances: Jay Z and Beyoncé Premiere “Partition” Remix At The 2014 BET Awards

To the disappointment of many Jay Z and Beyoncé were not at the BET Awards last night. I mean they are currently on tour so it’s understandable why they weren’t present. That didn’t stop them from participating in the soiree in some shape or form though.
