Rap-Up TV: Sevyn Streeter Talks EP, Chris Brown’s Advice, & Kelly Rowland

Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande, and Tamar Braxton are just some of the superstars who have called on Sevyn Streeter for her songwriting skills, but now the rising star is making a name for herself beyond the credits.

On Tuesday, the 27-year-old singer released her debut EP Call Me Crazy, But… The former RichGirl member, who is signed to Chris Brown’s CBE label, caught up with Rap-Up TV during the L.A. stop of her tour with K. Michelle to discuss her first solo offering.

“It’s basically talking about the cycle of a relationship, the ups, the downs, the good, the bad, the ugly,” she said of the seven tracks.

She sparked rumors of a romance after co-starring with Tristan “Mack” Wilds in the video for “It Won’t Stop.” “We had a really good time,” said Sevyn. “I felt like I was getting my acting chops on a little bit. He’s such a great actor.”

Chris Brown not only signed Sevyn, but he’s also been hands-on with her project. “He’s very involved. I swear I can call and ask him for advice about anything,” she said. “It doesn’t matter, it could be a video, it could be choreography or whatever, he’s always gonna have some kind of advice for me.”

She has written songs for his upcoming album X including “Fine China” and the title track. “I’m not quite sure what other records are on there, but I wrote some more so let’s have our fingers crossed.”

Sevyn recently had the honor of performing one of the songs she wrote, “Gone,” with Kelly Rowland at BET’s “Black Girls Rock!” “It was a dream come true. Honestly she didn’t have to do that and she’s a sweetheart for that and I just can’t thank her enough,” said Sevyn, who admits that the two share a resemblance.

So who’s left on her wish list of collaborators? “I would love to write for Beyoncé,” said Sevyn. “I would love to write some stuff for Usher, Jennifer Lopez, Miguel, the list goes on.”
