Rap-Up TV: Aubrey O’Day Explores Solo Career After Danity Kane

Aubrey O’Day may still be getting over being “fired” by Diddy on national television, but that hasn’t stopped her from pursuing a solo career. In Part 2 of our interview with the “All About Aubrey” star, she explores life after Danity Kane and reveals what we can expect from her solo debut. “You’re gonna see a lot of club, dance tracks. A lot of what Danity Kane would have put on a third album,” Aubrey told Rap-Up TV. “I actually went to a place beyond that, which I wasn’t even expecting to find, which is finding my own solo niche.”

One song she recorded is an emotional ballad called “Goodbye Heartbreak.” “That really was me letting go of my past and voicing what I have been feeling for a very long time and where I hope to go from that feeling,” she explained. “I hope that it can inspire anyone that’s had a lot of heartbreak in their past to let go of it and find a better place on their own.”

Aubrey, who is very involved with the writing process, has been in the studio with Young Money’s Shanell and the producers who worked on Danity Kane’s albums. At first she decided to go in an ’80s direction, but soon found herself gravitating toward a “’90s retro sound.” “I really want to push the standards and stay true to who I am as a person.”

Fans will get to see her reunite with fellow Danity Kane alum Aundrea to record a song. The making of their collaboration will be documented on an upcoming episode of her reality show.

Aubrey O’Day Strips Down for Celtics

Aubrey O'Day

Nothing stands between Aubrey O’Day and her beloved Boston Celtics. The star of Oxygen’s “All About Aubrey” repped for her favorite team by posing nude and splashing herself in green paint, holding a basketball and wearing only a pair of heels. The original photos appeared in SLAM magazine, while Aubrey shared the more revealing outtakes on Twitter.

This is not the first time the sexy singer has shed her clothes. The former Danity Kane member famously posed for the cover of Playboy in 2009.

“I’m a die-hard Celtics fan. I’d say equally enough with how much I’m obsessed with my dogs,” she told Rap-Up.com. “I bleed green, so the photo shoot was all about that. I love to get artistic with it, so I wanted to be the girl that actually bleeds green. How many chicks can actually say that?”

Peep the hot pics and look for Rap-Up TV’s exclusive interview with Aubrey tomorrow.

The former Danity Kane member is whipping up her solo debut album. Her friend and collaborator, Shanell, shared some insight into the project. “She loves the ’80s and she’s kind of a I-love-everybody type of fun girl, so it’ll probably be along those lines. Just fun music, dance music,” the Young Money singer told Rap-Up TV.
