YBF PREMIERE: Sevyn Streeter Covers Aaliyah's "Come Over"

Sevyn Streeter, one of Chris Brown's newest talented artists on his CBE label, is proving to the masses that her pipes are worthy to be listened to.  She covered the late Aaliyah's "Come Over."  So decide inside if you're loving it...

This 26-year-old Florida native isn't new to the music scene, but she is new to the solo scene.  Now that she's making her solo debut after her time in the group RichGirl, Sevyn's proving why she's a fresh face we've gotta watch.

Since Aaliyah was one of her biggest musical inspirations growing up, Sevyn recently recorded a cover for the late singer's song "Come Over."

While recently out on a promo tour, Sevyn made a trip to Aaliyah’s high school in Detroit and saw how much impact one artist can have on generations to come.  So she penned an open letter to Aaliyah (which she posted on her site) about how big of an inspiration the singer was to her.  She said in part:

"You made us feel comfortable in our own skin...we feel just as comfortable in our sweats and sneakers as we do in our jeans and heel....Putting in the Dr. Doolittle soundtrack--and learning the choreography to "Are You That Somebody" on the porch....That's what you did.  You made us all feel like we were good enough to be you."

 

Check out the rest over on her website and a pic below:

And we've got the exclusive premiere of Sevyn's cover of "Come Over" below.  And we think even true Aaliyah fans would be impressed:
 

You feeling it?

Sevyn has a beautiful voice & I enjoy her singing but there is only 1 Aaliyah and her voice & songs are original!

Some of the note changes

Some of the note changes weren't cute, some changes were nice. I couldn't get past 2:30 tho b/c she totally ruined the end and my ears couldn't stand it. Overall, it wasn't that bad tho.

NIce vocals but she brings

NIce vocals but she brings absolutely nothing new to the song. I sometimes think new artists lack any real artistry. Where is the creativeness? She clearly can sing but I don't think this song needed to be redone...sorry.

I think that she has a great

I think that she has a great voice but I just didn't like the way she sang it. It was like she sang it too heavy. I also just listened to song and I was expecting to hear something similar to Aaliyah's version and in that sense I was disappointed. But she really does have a great voice and I am interested to hear some original material from her!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this chick

LOVE LOVE LOVE this chick Sev. She can saaaang and seems like a dope person too. Very down to earth. I hope Sevyn and K Mac kill it with their music. I think they can shake up the R&B biz, just need decent Management and Marketing. if Trey Songz can come out of the shade and see stardom 3 albums later, ANYTHING is possible. #rnbBACK

Is this Sevyn Streeter chick

Is this Sevyn Streeter chick the same chick CB was trying to help bring out? Not Bad but I prefer some ORIGINAL MATERIAL especially when you are a new artist. I guess these days RB chicks have to do things just to get noticed. #1 The song is basic not hard to sing #2 It's not one of my fav Aaliyah songs #3 Knock yourself out if this will get you noticed or heard but it probably won't with this song! Remakes only work for a few like Mariah's I'll be There or Whitney's I will always love you, songs like Come Over are just not that strong or memorable. Good Luck though!

I'm Impressed! I think she did a good job. I love that she not only sang the song but she gave us the feelings of aaliyah but the essence of Sevyn. Def can't wait for the album! #Shewon

Okay so I do like this girl,

Okay so I do like this girl, I liked the group RichGirl. However I do not think Aaliyah has been gone long eneough for people to start covering her songs, using her beats I can understand. The fact that this girl is only 26 is the reason why she did so much to the song. Come over is about passion and lust! The song isn't about how many riffs you can do or even changing it up. Basically what im saying is "people stop trying to sing Aaliyah songs" Now on a positive note I think its dope she is signed to Chris Brown. I would love to hear more Original songs.

I agree with you on so many

I agree with you on so many levels. I actually heard Come Over on Pandora this morning and the beauty of the song IS how soft, sweet, and sensual it is. Sevyn has a great voice but I think it's a bit much for the song. She made it hard. I think it's best if people leave Aaliyah's songs alone. I know she wasn't a power house singer like Whitney, etc. but there was something soooo unique and beautiful about Aaliyah's voice that can't be matched.

Aaliyah's was good, but

Aaliyah's was good, but Changing Faces did the song first and will always be better.

Ummm... She did ok but she's

Ummm... She did ok but she's making a lot of faces like she's killing it but it's an easy song from Aaliyah!!! If you put it on mute and watched her, you would think she was doing a Mariah or Whitney song.

If she had attempted a hit

If she had attempted a hit song, folks probably would have been upset. But for this to be a semi B-side posthumus release fans won't be offended. She made it her own...good job. And she ain't have sexy ass Tank in that bridge to back her up...that's definitely missed!
