It seems like the easiest way to reacquaint listeners with your skills is by covering someone else's music. Eve is following in the growing trend by way of her newest “EVEstylin Tuesday”s effort, a remix to Brandy's Chris Brown-assisted single, “Put It Down.”
E-V-E rides the Bangladesh-produced beat pretty easily, throwing in the similarly flirtatious flow that made her “illest pit-bull in a skirt” so appealing. No, she's not recreating the wheel here, but just urging us to take a listen to her forthcoming album Lip Lock, which after several delays is finally on its way to fans. “I left EMI, now my deal's through Sony Red, still independent,” she told us of her label situation.“The album will be out next year.”
The Philly native has been somewhat quiet about how the entire project will sound, and which direction she is heading in. For now, the “She Bad Bad” single which dropped last month is the only thing we have to go by, and may be a precursor of things to come.
Be on the lookout for Lip Lock sometime in 2013. Until then, take a listen to the “Put It Down” remix below.
