Robi Reed’s 13th annual “Sunshine Beyond Summer Celebration” benefitting the Reed for Hope Foundation was anything but boring. This foundation is centered around the well-being of the African American community and there were many stars in attendance to support reed’s movement. Tyrese, Martin, and Tisha Campbell and more were all in attendance just to name a few! However, two of the most influential guest that stood out would have to be Floetry, yes I said Floetry! If you didn’t know the recently reunited duo put on an absolutely amazing performance supporting the cause.
But let’s talk about what sparked the break up in the first place. Here’s what Natalie “the floacist” had to say about it:
“My silence could have been confusing to the fans so I wanted to address the split at the right time in the correct medium” says the Floacist on her brand-new single “soul”. “Marsha left Floetry after so much joint success and foundation building, to join “Aftermath” records with no assurance of an album release ultimately holding Floetry to ransom to pursue a possibility of “mainstream” success, and all that was gained was whatever they would put in her pocket and a mix tape released entitled “Neo Soul is Dead”this to me is the perfect example of someone selling out or selling their soul.” To make a long story short the floacist believes that Marsha left Floetry to sell her soul.
Now, let’s go over with Marsha had to say:
“When we first started out, I was already writing and producing. Nat was a poet,” said Ambrosius. “I called her to do a song called ‘Fantasize’ I already had and put some poetry to it, and it became a fusion of two solo artists that did something awesome together. So when it works, it works, and it didn’t work anymore. “When you disagree on where you are in your lives you can’t create,” she continued. A little more vague than Natalie’s statement but I’ll take it.
Fortunately, according to both Marsha and Natalie there was never any hard feelings. They both agree that it’s always about the music at the end of the day. “Marsha and I touched a stage in December for the first time in eight years and it was like autopilot”, says Stewart.
In conclusion, when things are right they are just right and this is so right.
