Former Danity Kane diva D. Woods keeps the party going and the liquor flowing on her celebratory new single “2 the Bottom.” Produced by DClax and co-written by Woods and Candy Shields, the club-ready track will be released via her independent label Woodgrane Entertainment.
“The phrase ’2 the Bottom’ sums up the night of your life, saving nothing for the morning after,” explained the singer. “But the summer will be long and HOT so pace yourself, as this record will be the soundtrack to some crazy summer nights!”
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.

While she may have gone solo, the Playboy cover girl still has hopes for a Danity Kane reunion in the future. “Most of us all stay in touch and talk all the time,” she reveals. “I would love to bring it all back and get all the girls back together and have another little Danity Kane moment in life.”
