New Music: Tanya Stephens

Jamaican singer Tanya Stephens is readying to release her sixth album, Rebelution, tomorrow on VP Records. The superstar reggae singer/songwriter, whose current single “These Streets” moved to the #3 spot in Jamaica last week, heads to NYC this week to take part in the West Indian Parade on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn over Labor Day weekend. Meanwhile, Stephens has charged Lil’ Kim with ripping off the lyrics for “Durty” from The Naked Truth. Kim didn’t just steal her song, “Mi and Mi God,” Stephens claims in a suit filed in Manhattan federal court last week. She did so after flying Stephens to New York, asking her to sing on one of her albums, and belting out by heart the very song she pilfered to show what a big fan she was of Stephens, according to the suit.
