Because of my love for (mainly 90s) R&B music, I’ve made a lot of musical friends over the years who are all professionally active within that side of the music business. They all have been posting about one new album.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a reasonably new, upcoming artist (to as far as I know) get all her peers mentioning her album, but Demetria McKinney managed to make an impression and it’s been flooding my social media feeds for a whole week now.
She’s mainly known as an actress right now and, apparently, she’s one of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, until she split up from her husband. I can’t check this, because I only saw a clip of this show when I was in New York, years ago, and let’s just say, it’s not my kind of TV show… I wouldn’t even want to fact check this.
Anyway, now, it’s time to for her to make a new start and show another side of her: Her musical side. She’s released an album called “Officially Yours” and immediately got honored with a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. She’s officially made an impression.
