Dani Stevenson, born in Atlanta and raised in Harlem, is the perfect blend of Southern steadiness with New York charisma. The R&B artist uses the best of both worlds to her advantage in terms of both her charm and attitude, and quickly went from singing the National Anthem in Junior High to working with Missy Elliot and Pharrell Williams. You can hear her vocals on Nelly’s Grammy award winning single, ‘Hot In Herre’, and Nappy Roots’ ‘Heads Up’. The singer takes her inspiration from the likes of icons such as Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, and Sarah Vaughn, while at the same time she adds her own diva flava. Now with her own label, Lovers Lane Enertainment, Dani Stevenson has released her new single and music video, ‘Sugar Honey Ice Tea’, featuring Tampa born, Atlanta-based Shya L’amour.
In the video, the pair are drenched in gold and glitter, and make love to the camera, and seduce the man in the video. It isn’t until you realise that the title is an acrostic, and that these ladies aren’t messing around, and if you try, you’ll get what you came for. Dani Stevenson says it like it is, with the line, “Don’t sugar honey ice tea on my shit”. The man in the clip is busy in the kitchen, and so the girls do what they please, which includes riding around in an Oldsmobile Cutlass, hanging with their crew. Check it all out in the music video below. You can find out more about Dani Stevenson and her music online on her official website.
