Rap-Up TV: Behind the Scenes of Leah LaBelle’s ‘Sexify’ Video

You’ve seen the sexy video. Now Leah LaBelle takes Rap-Up TV behind the scenes of her debut single “Sexify,” with cameos from JoJo and her mentors Pharrell and Jermaine Dupri.

The Seattle songstress was discovered by The Neptunes producer through the Internet. “I connected with Pharrell and J.D. off of the strength of my YouTube videos,” said the former “American Idol” contestant. “Pharrell actually came across my videos two years ago and he felt at one point it was the right time. He reached out to me and showed my video to J.D. and they collectively decided to do the project.”

In addition to the hip-hop hitmakers, she is working closely with L.A. Reid on her I-Am-Other/So So Def/Epic Records debut, due out late summer/early fall. “He’s been an amazing person in my corner and somebody that I’ve learned from,” said Leah.

    in terms of audio, the sound is not a good look. too much echo, makes it difficult to hear. as for leah, i used to love her when she was on idol & then when i found her on youtube & was super juiced. then when she started rocking with keri hilson, seemed like she been on that bitch pussy lips a lil’ too hard- started to look just like her. leah can sing, but i don’t think she has enough star power to sustain in today’s competitive market. not with this song as her single. i just don’t see it for her.

    I need summer visuals for “So Hot”, the “Sexify” video was quirky just like the song.
