NEW MUSIC: Sherell Rowe – Sex Toy

by Winston "Stone" Ford

Sherell Rowe – Sex Toy | Buy on iTunes

When you think of DC R&B, the stereotypes are that it’s very boho and, let’s face it, stuck in the neo-soul past. And honestly, it’s been a minute since the DMV has produced a credible pop starlet.

Until Sherell Rowe.

I’ve been sitting on this track Sex Toy for almost a year now (not my fault) and somehow managed not to leak or post it until today. The song is a bonifide pop thriller, with stellar production by Darkplanet and an obviously sexy hook. Compared to weaker songs that have made it to the radio, this track is pure gold.

Sherrell just dropped her EP, and it’s hands down one of the best pop projects I’ve heard all year. It’s electro-pop, but since the production has it’s roots in Baltimore, it sound more authentic than a lot of the wannabe electro pop that has flooded the marketplace in recent years.

A very good look.

    With tons of attitude and glamour Sherell is a breath of fresh air in the lacking indie industry. With songs about woman power, sexual liberation, and much more Sherell shines as a beacon for all independent ladies and singers.

    Sherell Rowe is a breath of fresh air blowing her beautiful vocals all over the DC Music Scene. She brings a much needed sexy flavor of lyrics and driving beats combined with unmatched physical beauty and brilliant stage presence. Sherell definately has Black Zone’s seal of approval!

    The whole EP is hot. If there’s one thing Sherell Rowe’s music is good for (and there are a ton of things that are oh so good about it) is the “I’m a confident, sexy woman” vibe that comes out of every lyric. Every time I listen to “Sex Toy” or “Ordinary” I am dancing, no matter where I am, car, desk, home…

    I have seen stills and clips of her video (what can I say, when I love an artist I do my Google research) and I’m ridiculously excited to see how its all put together.

    DC needs to get behind Sherell Rowe as it has gotten behind Wale, etc. so the world can see that this area has more to offer than rap and go-go.

    Sherell has the makings of the next hot thing except she’s already here so if you are just now getting your taste you are behind the eight ball. But you still have time to get with the program because she is blowing up. Her music is whats been needed because of the fresh new feel she delivers with her writing and her outstanding vocals. She’s on her way to the top amd its about time..

  • MoMo

    SO SO SO HOT! I’m in love with this beat! U sound amazing! def a hot track

  • Cassandra Thomas

    the beat is hot and i could easily dance to this in a club. LOVE IT! fierce lyrics.

  • Somer

    This song has straight energy in it. Knowing you this has you written all over it. I’m so happy that you are doing what you love and when you blow up dont forget about “The Crew”

    Sherell Rowe is a talented singer that has a voice that grabs you as soon as you hear it. I was fortunate enough to have the pleasure to work with her and she brings not only her vocal skills but her incredible writing skills. Sherell’s EP is definitely a breath of fresh air and passed overdue for listeners. She is just warming up

    Sherell is the next big thing in pop music … this EP is straight dope and is only a preview of where she is headed. Sherell Rowe … remember the name!!!!

  • BEWARE!

    she is a breathe of fresh air her music is from the future and when is the last time the DMV celebrated a well rounded artist like this shes the best ive heard in a long time and ive been listening!!!

  • Reggie Reg

    Here is another example of what the DMV has to offer beyond the traditional helping of gogo. Sherrell is a true blend or funk, pop and sultry night club melodic tones. If a person is not pulled in after listening to her sound, there must be a problem with their ears. This is a truly welcomed addition to the music scene. Thanks for giving it to us.

    My cousin Sherell has been in love with music ever since we were “teeny boppers” and were still learning about the diversity of music and its meaning. She has always been determined to meet her goal to become a successful artist and doesn’t know what the words “I quit” mean. I’ve always admired her for dedication to fulfill her dream. I knew she’d make it happen one day. The power of prayer does wonderful things! She’s been blessed with a beautiful voice and great talent. I wish her the best with her upcoming career. Cheers, cousin!

  • hippie

  • Carl Evans

    CRAZY!!!!This unique sound is refreshing to the ear…the beat slams hard and gets me hyped and a very strong beautiful voice. I don’t know who this chick is but I am now a fan!!!

  • ???

    This is one of the best EP I have heard in years!
    The sound is fresh and there is finally something in the States that can compete with European Electro! Get the EP as soon as you can, that way you can sound smart in a club when all of these songs get to be played at your local music happening place.

  • Luke!

    I purchased her EP off iTunes – it is FANTASTIC. She knows how to get a crowd moving. I have not yet had the chance to see her live, if anyone knows of upcoming shows – let me know ASAP – I am in. If you have not heard her, buy the EP on iTunes, you will love it!!!

  • Crystal

    I actually came to Couch Sessions today to read their review on Kanye’s new album, randomly came across this Sherell Rowe review, and decided to check out the EP on iTunes. I must say that I am an absolute new fan! Been obsessed with the songs all day! Love the way she’s able to keep it real lyrically and make you dance at the same time!

Download the music and let this beautiful artist show you what a talent she is!!..cali will not be the same once this hits mainstream which it will!!..love the beats..the lyrics..and the determination and love this artist has for her talent

  • http://www.soundbridgefestival.com ytravillian

    I like it. Beat is dope! I think she has potential. I would very much be interested in seeing some visuals for this song; to give me a better idea what exactly it she’s about to bring to the industry.
    ‘Sex Toy’… The R&B Nicki Minaj perhaps? No chick is bringing it like that right now; she could certainly be the one to step up to the plate. Ciara isn’t (IMO).

    This song should be ’106 & Park’ like NOW. Folks are going to flip when they find out she’s from DC!!! Gonna peep the EP today!

  • DJJOHNSON

    I luv it reppin for my city, and she bad !!!!!! Got to love the the original sound we ready chyna!!!!!!!!

    Love it! So fresh and fun! Makes me want to dance!

  • http://TopNotch... Weezie

    This chic is not only sexy as hell… Her sound is crazy, new and refreshing… I never knew what the hype was about until now! I’m glad I have a product and movement that is different for me to vibe and grow with… But did I mention that she is sexy… Get “Sex Toy” and the entire LP… It’ll be worth it!
