I remember back in the day, I was supposed to have a conference call with some PR people regarding Rye Rye. This was on the cusp of the Baltimore Club invasion, and Rye Rye was poised to be the new star of the movement. Then, the call was abruptly cancelled with no explination. Later, I found out that Rye was pregnant, and her project was subsiquently put on the shelf.
I was worried. I thought that this was the end for Rye. Thankfully this is not the case, as the new mom (Happy Mother’s Day btw) has been grinding hard, and is the star of M.I.A’s Neet imprint. Her debut album, Go! Pop! Bang! is set to drop this year, and with higher expectations comes a pop-oriented track with Swedish star Robyn. The track sounds a tad hackneyed, but it works out much smoother than that other DMV area artist/pop star collaboration. Check it. (via Hypetrak)
