Do You Recognize This R&B Songstress??

- By Bossip Staff

Do you recognize this songstress? Her first hit came out in 2001, and her voice saved a new rapper’s single in 2004… like a safety belt. And while it may seem like she’s been quiet since, her fifth album just came out…

That is singer (and real life basketball wife) Syleena Johnson in a new spread for Juicy Magazine. In her cover interview, Syleena explains the importance of her fans to this album.

JUICY: Your new album, Chapter V: Underrated, was named by your fans. How does it feel being classified as “underrated?”

SYLEENA JOHNSON: It makes me want to cry. But it’s a happy cry… a triumphant cry because I work so hard. Even if I don’t sell a million copies, I am still triumphant because it’s *out*. The reviews for *Underrated* have been great. I feel that I did my part and that I’ve been triumphant in creating a great album.

I can’t thank my fans enough because without their support, I wouldn’t be here. And I mean that! We [artists] are supposed to say that but I truly mean it. Besides having my sister, I didn’t really have anyone else to speak with about quitting music. But my fans were there and they were my biggest motivators. They were the ones who said “No!” and were serious about it. They told me that I couldn’t quit and they’re really the reason *Chapter V: Underrated* is here today.
