It's been a while since I had a real post. What better a topic to come back with than one of my favorite male R&B artists, Sammie. I swear I've been in like with this guy since the sixth grade when he came to sing at my school. It was at that moment that I started calling myself Alexandria Bush. I've grown up since then and my infatuation with Sammie and B2K has died down. I must admit, I don't follow him on twitter simply because I don't tweet enough to actually stay informed anyway. However, I decided to do a YouTube search on Sammie yesterday after I couldn't stop singing lyrics from "Crazy Things I Do" and I found more than just old videos. Not only does he have current videos on YouTube, but Sammie has an up-to-date webpage and a mixtape out. Of course, I had to download it and I gave it a listen before I decided to write/blog about this man. Although It's Just A Mixtape is a mixtape, it's totally worth downloading and songs like "B Word" and "Phone" are among my favorites. Sammie has writing credits on each song on the mixtape which is pretty impressive especially considering the fact that he does a bit of rapping this go round. This is my first time hearing from him since his 2006 album, Sammie, which featured the hit single "You Should Be My Girl".
Sammie has come a long way from liking the way a pre-teen girl looks at him. He's an adult now and I'm hoping that this mixtape gets him the recognition that he deserves. It's sad that artists like Chris Brown and Sammie (among others) are providing music to fans via free mixtapes as opposed to selling albums that eventually go platinum. I wonder if the music industry will ever be the same. If I knew how to sing, I lowkey wouldn't even want a deal because it seems so hard to make it. Moving on, do me a favor and visit Sammie's website in order to find out the latest news. Also, be sure to download the mixtape by clicking here. You can also follow him on twitter to get your daily dose of this R&B superstar.
