In addition to starring on the big screen in The Perfect Guy, Sanaa Lathan is launching her music career. The actress teams with DeJ Loaf on her debut single “Emotional,” produced by Detail (“Drunk in Love”) and co-produced by Choppa & Sidney.
The song was inspired by a conversation between Lathan and Detail after screening The Perfect Guy where Detail commented to Lathan how emotional her co-star (Michael Ealy) was in the film.
“Life can be amazing when you step outside your comfort zone sometimes and say yes. Who woulda thought I’d have a single out,” said Lathan. “I’m thinking of this as character I’m playing singing this song. She’s my character Leah’s (in #ThePerfectGuy) ALTER EGO and her name is #BrownSugar.”
For her part, DeJ stays bossed up on her verse and doesn’t let emotion get in the way of building her brand.
