Missy Elliott’s protege Sharaya J released new music through VIBE Vixen Monday (Sept 29). Giving us Missy nostalgia, she intricately executed a highly impressive visual to officially drop not one but two new songs, “Takin’ It No More” and “Shut it Down.”
Elliott hit gold by taken Sharaya under her wing because she’s closing the gap between music, dance, and videos. Something we haven’t seen in years. Instead of over sexualizing herself or beefing with the world to just have her name in other’s mouths, she’s making us fall in love with her musical approach which coincides with our likeness of her. Choosing to take the road less traveled on to gain stardom and respect in the industry, she lives by her movement B.A.N.J.I. (Being Authentic and Never Jeopardize Individuality).
To put it straight forward, there’s gimmicks and then there’s authenticity in your craft and it’s obvious which lane the blue haired baddie is dancing down. While her recent videos serve as a great headway into our introduction of her as our #ArtistToWatch, her previous work of art will confirm our music crush over this underrated gold mine.
