Music: Forget Cardi B, Imani Scott, Houston’s Next Beyonce, Shouldn’t Be Missed: She’s Got the Voice and the Hits On Her Own


If you don’t know about Imani Scott, you should. She can saing. She’s also very funny, and her videos are showcase her humor. Scott is Houston born and bred. Her first album, “The Introduction,” is from hot producer-engineer Isaac “Chill” Yowman. Why songs like these aren’t on the radio yet in New York is beyond me:

Yowman knows what he’s doing: he’s got a gold record for working on Beyonce’s “surprise” 2013 self titled album. He also works with Chris Brown. In Imani he’s got a hot singer who can also act and has quite a personality. One listen to “The Introduction” and you’ll be hooked.
