There’s been a lot of talk about Demetria McKinney‘s solo singing career, but many of us are still asking ourselves “Who is Demetria?“, and If you’re draw a blank, let us fill you in. McKinney who is best known for her role as “Janine” in Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and her role as “Monica” on TV One’s The Rickey Smiley Show, is also a Singer, simply put.
Although cliche to hear these to
careers tied together, she recently hosted an exclusive listening
session in Atlanta where she debuted six songs that is featured on her
upcoming May ’14 release “Officially Yours,” and after hearing her sing, she’s quite talented.
“I’m a goofball, I like to have fun, and I’m very very real, I
grew up hooping (playing ball) wrestling with dudes, climbing trees, no
barbies in sight” she confessed to the audience. “…all of this
new stuff is very fun, but it doesn’t get down to the core of who I
am, which is why this music had to really represent me.” she stated.“‘Work With Me’is about the time you actually find a good dude, and you kinda tripping a little bit” she continued, “it’s not our fault, we’ve been through some things, work with us, give us a second and were gonna come around.” she admitted to the crowd.
