Sevyn Streeter has been burning up the dance floor with “I Like It,” and now she slows it down with her second single “It Won’t Stop,” produced by Diplo and Picard Brothers. The singer-songwriter, who has written for Chris Brown (“Fine China”) and Alicia Keys (“New Day”), channels her idol Aaliyah as she effortlessly coos over the breezy ballad.
“I would best describe Sevyn as a rarity and the experience of working with her as a gift,” said Free School’s Jean-Baptiste, who co-wrote the song. “She’s a talent beyond words and I can’t wait for the world to discover that. ‘It Won’t Stop’ is a testament to her artistry as an amazing songwriter and a great artist. I think we wrote that song in less than 30 mins. That session was pure magic.”
Sevyn’s debut is due later this year on Chris Brown’s CBE/Atlantic Records. Catch her co-hosting “106 & Park” with Bow Wow tonight.
