Found! Teedra Moses

While working the other day, I was letting my television be my background music and found myself barraged by a string of Pop/R&B videos that I doubt would ever be made during the days of Chaka Khan, Patrice Rushen, Donna Summer, Whitney Houston (pre-crack), and Anita Baker. They all may seem old to you now, but when they were in the young prime they were baddass. Take away the hair, the makeup, and a good singer can gather generations of fans, which I sadly can’t say for the pop “divas” who are penetrating our airwaves. This all got me to thinking: “Where in the hell is Teedra Moses?




While I know she hasn’t totally disappeared, it just boggles my mind that Ciara can be gearing up for her 4th major release and Teedra Moses’s Complex Simplicity, followed by a string of mixtapes (and a promise of another album) is all I have to protect myself from the fluff parade. For me, she’s one of the few singers who are a perfect blend of ’round the way realness with 5th Avenue style. If you’ve seen her live, you know that potential is already proven right? High-horse rant aside, I’m happy to say that Teedra never stopped grinding, and has a few live dates coming up soon. Check for her!
