This bass heavy track is the lead single from Eva’s forthcoming debut album which will feature collaborations with Snoop Dogg and Krayzie Bone from the legendary Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. The album will also feature production by Poli Paul (Christina Milian “Dip It Low”), Jonathan ‘JR’ Rotem (Rihanna “SOS”) and Scott Storch (50 Cent, Christina Aguilera).
“Ever since I was little, I wanted to be a singer,” confesses Eva in a bubbly, confident voice. The 19-year-old bourgeoning pop singer is positioning herself to follow in the footsteps of some of her childhood idols, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Jessica Simpson, with a debut CD and companion reality show from In Ya Face Records/Productions.
The stunning blonde teen who recently left her home in Northern California to enroll in college at the University of Arizona has been rotating her schedule, taking the required freshman courses, joining a sorority and penning introspective lyrics to accompany the pulsating tracks for her highly anticipated release.
“We tried to get a lot of the material done before I started college,” she continues, “I’ve always kept journals filled with material and various experiences I’ve had. I’m taking time now to go through them for inspiration and to select the areas of my life I want to explore on this CD. Some of the material is romantic, but all of it is personal. I like to keep my music upbeat and I’m working with a few rapper and hip hop producers for a different perspective.”
Eva’s passion for music brimmed under the surface as a child, where she listened to the radio and was glued to MTV. It wasn’t until she was a sophomore in high school that she actively began to pursue a career in the performing arts. “Prior to that, I was shy,” Eva recalls. “My family and friends didn’t even know that I liked to sing because I was so shy and had stage fright. I got over my fear by appearing in high school musicals like Bye, Bye Birdy and Thoroughly Modern Millie. My first performances were background roles, but once I hit the stage I was hooked. Ultimately, I made my decision to record an album. I knew I had to break out of my shell.”
Now that tracks have been recorded for her debut CD, Eva is ready for the spotlight. “The danceable tracks on my album are my favorites, but this CD reflects exactly who I am musically.”
Eva’s album is loaded with hot tracks and loads of star power. Wanting to immediately stand out, Eva enlisted the help of hip hop superstar Snoop Dogg on the CD’s lead track “Popular.” “Snoop heard the track, thought it was an instant hit and agreed to be a part of it,” comments Eva. “Popular” explores the self conscious feelings many young girls have today in relation to their peers. It was produced by hip hop and R&B hit maker Poli Paul who has produced hits for Christina Milian and Chingy. Another stand out is “One Night Stand,” which reflects the views of modern day romance. That track gets a touch of melodic flavor with the addition of grammy award winner Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs N Harmony fame.
The world will soon get the opportunity to be formally introduced to all facets of Eva’s dynamic teenaged life as part of a new reality show chronicling her destiny for stardom. ” All About Eva” will examine the balance she strikes between being a college student and the demands of a pop music career. It will also delve into the recording process and examine her interaction with many of music’s top producers including Jonathan ‘JR’ Rotem, the man who made Rihanna and Sean Kingston music superstars. Rotem produced two club tracks for Eva, titled “Do That” and “I’m On Fire.” The show will also examine how Eva shapes her image from her dieting woes to her furious gym and choreography workouts.
Mostly, Eva looks forward to being a role model to teens, just as female pop idols were to her. “I’m up for it,” she affirms. From the days of performing in Thoroughly Modern Millie to becoming a thoroughly modern sexy songstress, Eva has arrived, singing and dancing her way to the top of the charts.
This summer, Eva will be working with Scott Storch on some tracks to complete her album, as well as rehearsing for live performances to get ready for a spot date tour opening for some major acts in August and September.
