What better way to retire than listening to the smooth vocals of TRAEDONYA!

TRAEDONYA! (AKA The Bride of New Funk Hipopera) who is a Bronx raised vocalist celebrates New York Yankee‘s great Derek Jeter, with a very personal visual that takes you back to Sept 27th 2014 at Yankee stadium on Mr. Jeter’s last day playing at the stadium. The visual features real Yankee fans emotionally discussing him. It is currently exclusively on Facebook.

Derek Jeter retires from the New York Yankees

TRAEDONYA! like her fellow New Yorkers that day, was feeling a deep sadness yet managing to still celebrate his 20 years in NYC. There were so many people at the stadium who had grew up with him.

Derek Jeter Retires from the New York Yankees

TRAEDONYA! Releases new single, ‘My Favorite Guy’ featuring Derek Jeter.

This past Sunday, the ball player retired his number and left fans all over emotional as he delivered his speech.

 “I was asked recently if I could trade places with one person, who it would be,” Jeter said in his address. “There isn’t a person or player I would trade places with that’s playing now or ever. And the reason why I say that is because I got a chance to play for a first-class organization and in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports.”

“You know, you play here in New York for 20 years,” he said. “I learned that time flies, memories fade, but family is forever—and I’ll be eternally grateful to be a part of the Yankees family, so I can’t thank you guys enough. Thank you very much.”

TRAEDONYA! releases ‘My Favorite Guy‘ featuring Derek Jeter.

While outside Yankee stadium she witnessed the sorrow and sullen expressions on people’s faces that touched her deeply. From that experience the song, “My Favorite Guy” was imagined. I saw that he was New York City’s Favorite Guy that day. “I am not a baseball fan but I know who Derek Jeter is”, says TRAEDONYA!

The song is a soulful piano driven song anchored by TRAEDONYA’S sweet vocals. The song is the soundtrack for the visual. Check out the video below and more information about her.

[AUDIO] “Another One”–Remy Ma (@RealRemyMa) Drops ANOTHER Nicki Minaj (@NickiMinaj) Diss Track!

remy ma another one diss track

Remy Ma is making it very clear she is NOT here for Nicki Minaj. As you recall the two female rappers are currently beefing with Remy recently releasing a diss track, shETHER, that not only came for Nicki’s skills, status as a rapper, but even went in on her brother who allegdly raped a teenage girl! Yes, it got that messy! Most people, including a few fans agree Remy pretty much destroyed Nicki, but what has shocked us all is that the raptress has released yet ANOTHER diss track before Nicki could even make a comeback!

remy ma and nicki minaj

Remy’s new diss track aptly entitled Another One, dropped today and it is a beast! Check it out below!

Yikes! Remy Ma is making it very clear she “will not lose,” nor is she someone to come for! This title and the cover art for it pretty much confirm how we all feel. Still, where is Nicki?! For her to be “The Queen of Rap” she has been eerily silent and in the world of rap battles and celebrity beefs that is just not cool. When you have people like her ex, Safaree Samuels saying she can’t come back we need her to prove them wrong and rise to the occasion.

What do you guys think of Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj’s beef, and more importantly Another One? Is it just as venomous as shEther? We definitely want to hear your thoughts! It has been awhile since we enjoyed a good rap battle, especially with two beloved female rappers. Happy listening!

The beef between Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj reached a fever pitch today when the former released her diss track, shETHER. Most agree that Remy took Nicki to the ringer with her new track and we are now patiently awaiting the latter’s clapback. However, it seems that Nicki is off focus as she seems to have R&B singer, Trey Songz in her cross hairs for not clearing up a claim Remy made when she named dropped him in her song. Remy rapped:

“Only time you touched a trigger is when you f*cked Trey Songz,”

Trey took to Twitter today to comment on the song and being name dropped.

About Demetria McKinney

Vocal powerhouse Demetria McKinney is a triple threat in the truest sense of the term. She is an award-winning actress who has played diverse roles on the big and small screens as well as the stage. She is a talented singer with a rich voice requiring zero studio enhancements. And she is a skillful songwriter who generously expresses emotions in a way that instantly connects with listeners.

 

Widely known for her role as “Janine Payne” on the hit TBS sitcom “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,” which has taped over 254 episodes and received five NAACP Image Awards for Best Sitcom and now in syndication on BET. Demetria will also be reviving her role as Janine in the new Tyler Perry show “The Paynes” debuting on OWN in 2018.

 Demetria can currently be seen on Bounce TV’s breakout hit “Saints & Sinners”, BET’s “The Quad”, Centric TV’s “The Ladies Room” and the stage play “Love Jones The Musical”. Demetria also has recurring roles on Life Time’s “Devious Maids” and on TV One as a primary character on “The Rickey Smiley Show.”

 Demetria was also a cast member on Bravo TV’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season” 7 and had cameo appearances on Season 8.

 Even though her acting career keeps her very busy, Demetria always makes time for her first love: music. This eOne Music recording artist over the past few years has recorded and performed with artists such as Lyfe Jennings, Musiq Soulchild and Anthony David. Demetria has also opened for R&B mainstays such as Tyrese and Tank and has toured with the Pepsi Funkfest and R. Kelly.

 Her latest single “Easy” is a song about a woman living and loving a man in a relationship that is growing. Demetria’s forthcoming LP Officially Yours, is scheduled for release early this year. The soulful ballad was written by McKinney, Courtlin Jabrae and Devin Horton, and was also produced by We Are Starbound Music.

 All the songs on Officially Yours emanate from a place within Demetria that up until now she has only expressed through the characters that she’s played. The spectrum of a woman’s life lived out loud – with love, resilience and courage – is represented on Officially Yours.

 “As a recording artist, this is where the most truthful, transparent side of me will be seen and heard,” Demetria says. “People mostly know me for the roles I have played, and they are all roles that I chose specifically for the lessons that I would learn from each character.  Personally, I never wanted to show vulnerability because I thought it was a sign of weakness. I didn’t want to talk about situations I’ve endured and I would shut off opportunities that would make me connect with any past pain.  I always hid behind my characters, and allowed them to overshadow Demetria. But the reason I call this LP Officially Yours is because the music represents the ‘official’ Demetria McKinney.”

 McKinney first worked with Tyler Perry on his stage play, “Meet the Browns” and she went on to star in several other of his plays including “What’s Done In The Dark;” “Why Did I Get Married,” and “Madea’s Family Christmas.” Her additional stage work includes leading roles in the plays “The Mountaintop;” “Church Girl;” the musical “I Dream,” in which she portrayed Mrs. Coretta Scott King, and “Dreamgirls” where she performed alongside the legendary Jenifer Holliday.  Her numerous film and television credits include the films “Daddy’s Little Girls;” “Breaking Up is Hard to Do;” “Necessary Roughness;” “Let’s Stay Together;” Drop Dead Diva’s and many more.

 Demetria released two films last year “Let The Church Say Amen” on BET, directed by Regina King, starring Demetria, Naturi Naughton, Lela Rochon & Hosea Chanchez; and “Sons To The Grave” Directed by Mykelti Williamson, starring Demetria, Trevor Jackson & Darrin Henson. Demetria is also the brand ambassador for LOREAL’s Dark & Lovely Au Naturale brand.

Keep Up with Demetria McKinney!
