Adrienne Bailon Finds Her Own Lane: ‘I Don’t Want to Be Another R&B Girl’

Adrienne Bailon

Adrienne Bailon is singing a new tune. After attempting to go solo, the former Cheetah Girl is switching up her sound and revamping her debut album.

The 27-year-old entertainer has been through some professional changes in the past year and is taking her time to perfect her music. “I switched management. I’m now managed by the people who manage Ne-Yo,” she told Rap-Up.com. “I refuse to put out anything that’s not going to be perfect and not be a good representation of me.”

While the Island Def Jam signee is still discovering her niche, she hinted at her new direction. “Ever since the 3LW days, I’ve always wanted to do something with a Latin influence,” she revealed. “And I think it’s hard for people to understand that I want to get it right, so I’m working with different people now who are helping me take this album in a completely different direction. It’s kind of like starting all over again.”

Fans got a taste of her solo material with the 2009 single “Superbad,” but Adrienne explained that the album’s direction has changed since then. “The songs are totally different. We’re going in a completely different direction and I’m much happier with it. I’m actually even more excited about these songs because I’m more in my own lane now. It’s really very me. I don’t want to be just another R&B girl.”

When she’s not in the recording studio, she is also developing a talk show and has plans to follow in some big footsteps. “I wanna be like Oprah,” she declared.

    you know i command her because its hard when you were in two girl groups who did very well and now tryna find your own voice i completely get what she’s saying and to be honest i feel like in 3lw and the cheetah girls that she was the voice she’s very versitale she does pop, r&b and latin music so take ya time girl im sure your gonna have a bright solo career ( if dawn and aubrey from danity kane can make it solo i have faith you will too)

    @bri_bre,

    she may have a versatile voice but there is no denying that Raven-Symone had the best voice in thr cheetah girls, why do you think she left? it was because the girls were all fighting because raven got all the solos :)

    @Pheonix, true ravens voice is good but she was only apart of the movies she wasnt in the offical group i just checked and read some stuff raven was just for the movies because the books have a girl group of four in them but as far as her doing concerts and selling albums with them she wasnt offically apart of that but i get what your saying i was saying out of the white girl and the other girl from 3lw she was the voice

    I think the latin direction would be good for her but she’s got competition from Kat and more recently J. Lo on that front.

    Superbad was SUCH and awesome song. I do hope they come up with something better than this. This girls is the most talented act Disney ever had! She deserves a good album.

    Even if it’s underestimated by the media (which it’ll do)
