Former Houston Rockets dancer, Natalie, couldn't have choreographed a better opening number onto the pop music scene. Her single, "Goin' Crazy," has struck a deep chord with listeners. The sultry, heartfelt ballad is currently blowing up phone lines across the country as one of the top 10 most requested songs on the radio and one of the fastest chart climbers on I-Tunes. Inspired by a past relationship, the Texas native penned the track in just 15 minutes. The single hits the stores March 15th while her debut album drops this May on Latium/Universal Records.
"I'm literally in the studio everyday, breathing, sleeping and eating music," says the twenty-something Latina. She was poised to pursue a more traditional career with her degree in criminal justice but a chance audition with the Houston Rockets changed her life. She landed onto the local music scene where she danced for Houston artists and perfected her flow as a lyricist. While creating mix tapes she realized a strong passion for not only music, but for writing as well.
Fate stepped in a second time when she was rapping at a club. Charles Chavez, president of Latium Entertainment spotted her and the rest is history. Latium Entertainment is the management company to Frankie J., Baby Bash, Chamillionaire and Play N' Skillz. Producers Happy Perez (Jadakiss, Mystikal, Master P) and Play N' Skillz (Ludacris, Scarface, UGK, Krayzie Bone)are lending their platinum touch to her album.
"I'm working with various producers in Houston and want people to recognize all the musical talent we have here," explains the songstress. Influenced by the likes of Jadakiss, Gwen Stefani, Usher, Beyonce' and Aaliyah, Natalie possesses versatility like many of the musicians who have inspired her. "I want to be a great entertainer," she says. "I love making all kinds of music from ballads, to dance tracks and club tracks, all of these styles are going to be on my album."
It's no secret that Natalie is one to watch in the entertainment industry. Fans can see her action on the upcoming Latium Entertainment tour with Frankie J., Baby Bash and many more.
