FRESH MEAT: R&B Newcomer Trevante

 

R&B music has a new youngin' for teen girls to swoon over. Meet the multi-talented singer Trevante inside and check out his latest single "Be My First."

Houston, Texas native Trevante is set to become the next big thing in R&B.

Though he's only 17, Trevante, who does his thing in the ATL now, has been making music since he was 12 after his father, song writer Joe Haliburton,  established Selsum Records and put out two singles, “That Girl” and “Baby Girl”.

Now signed to Imani Entertainment Group, Trevante says:

“I love performing. I feel like I can just be myself…I just let go. It’s the best feeling in the world!”

His debut album, “I Am Trevante,” (slated for a late-2011 release) will feature songs co-written by himself, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Diane Warren, Rico Love, The Underdogs, and Troy Taylor.

About his new LP, Trevante says,

“This album is special because it’s my introduction to the world. It’s about love and purity. It shows my R&B side, my pop side, and it’s just overall good music.”

He's currently on BET's “106 & Park: Closer to My Dreams Tour,” with Tyga, Mindless Behavior, Diggy Simmons, Lil Twist and Jawan Harris. 

 

 

Check out the Tank-produced "Be Your First" track below:

You feelin' him?

Some of you guys are grown

Some of you guys are grown adults. Yet, some of you are talking about and bashing this TEENAGER from his name to his looks. He doesn't pay your bills, buy your food or clothes so leave him alone. If he was that concerned about his looks, then he would've changed. So why waste your time writing negatively about him? He didn't do anything to any of you. Grow up. And, i'm 13.

Why must we hate on each

Why must we hate on each other? If this kid likes to sing and perform let him do that. I think he sounds really good for his age. He has a great future ahead of him so enjoy his music and quit hating! Peace.

He has a song out before & it

He has a song out before & it didn't do anything. Image is everything & he lacks it. Cut the braids. Jacob Latimore is the next big r&b usher. Lil guy can dance, (really) sing & act. He's a cutie too.

EXACTLY, no one wants to see

EXACTLY, no one wants to see a black kid, looking like a black kid. Only white boys (Justin Beiber) should look innocent. Black BOYS should look hard like they on they way to prison, BTW no wants to see black boys singing, Rapping only please, singing is gay for black boys to do right?. I mean that why Trey Songs & Chris Brown is doing it. WE need Psychological help black people
