LADY AND A TRAMP ARE NAUGHTY AND NICE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, WITH NAUGHTY BY NATURE







LADY AND A TRAMP ARE NAUGHTY AND NICE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, 
WITH NAUGHTY BY NATURE



For Immediate Release:
New York NY, December 14, 2011 


Production/Songwriting duo, Lady And A Tramp, celebrate the release of Hip Hop Icon's, Naughty by Nature’s new album, ANTHEM INC. A collection of 13 new offerings, anchored by 20th Anniversary versions of some of their crowd pleasing hip hop classics.

This is the East Orange crew's sixth album since forming in 1988. Marrying their street edge with pop hooks, the group scored Top 10 hits with "O.P.P" and "Hip-Hop Hooray". ANTHEM INC. is the first album featuring all three original members since their 1999 release, NINETEEN NAUGHTY NINE: NATURE'S FURY.

Serving as Associate Executive Producer, Lady And A Tramp produced and/or co-wrote on all 12 of the albums songs along with the grammy award winning trio.

"Getting Naughty is the nicest way to spread love this holiday season. It's an honor to create with such a talented group, on a album that is sure to touch the hearts and minds of many", says Marcella Precise.



“It’s a blessing to work with an act that hasn't has an album in the market for almost a decade, but have remained consistent through their touring schedule since 1991", says Lady And A Tramp's Terence "Tramp-Baby" Abney. "Even without a record out they've been clearing 100+ shows a year for the last decade, Now that's staying power!"

This musical stocking stuffer is just as perfect as "Perfect Party" featuring R&B singer Joe. It's packed with thought provoking anthems that are sure to be remembered such as "Name Game (Remember)" featuring actress/singer Kate Nauta (best known for her show stopping role in Transporter 2), fun Naughty energy on "Doozit" featuring R&B singer Syleena Johnson and their New Jersey family, your royal highness herself, Queen Latifah featured on "God Is Us".

#LAAT's OWN MAAD*MOISELLE COVERS GHUBAR MAGAZINE !

MAAD*MOISELLE COVERS GHUBAR MAGAZINE !

For their 2011 Summer issue, Ghubar Magazine goes completely MAAD!!

Gracing two instinctively different covers of rising American singer, MAAD*MOISELLE,

respectively shot by Felipe Barbosa and Ab Sesay.


"The idea behind the editorial was to smoothly fuse Ghubar's fashion-forward & innovative spirit with MAAD*MOISELLE's universe, and make it one." says Sarah Diouf, Editor-in-chief.

Born to a musician father and a model mother it is her blend of iconic fashion and fiercely provocative music, mixed in with a lustful sense of humor that's defined within the singer's work. Taking a microscopic approach, we wanted to see MAAD*MOISELLE in the "raw" and piece-by-piece explore the very core of what makes this woman every bit of who she is - a mix of singer, stylist, dancer, model - and what she thought she never could be - a brooding guest fashion editor.

"With two editorials expressing the duality living inside the artist : a powerful presence and the serenity of the greatest, I feel confident to say the final product came out great."

A voice that the fans have already had the chance to hear on tracks such as "I am not your girl" & "Something Better featuring Marcella Precise", were only just the beginning. MAAD*MOISELLE is currently riding high on the success of the international hit single "Outrun the Sun", with the #1 European Hip Hop duo, Madcon. Its world-wide mainstream success has led her gracing stages, alongside Madcon, all across the pond with performances on UK's X Factor, popular German Comedian Mario Barth's Show, Kika Kids, and for a crowd of over 25,000 at Germany's coveted Viva Comet awards. MAAD*MOISELLE's phoenix-like rise to the top is an inevitable one.

"Working with Maad* became more and more evident that not just any box can possibly contain such artistry. We are with grand excitement preparing and about to announce our official all-American - (New York based) - launch for this Fall.

Seeing Ghubar through the vibrant eyes of a passionate New Yorker like MAAD*MOISELLE is the perfect bridge to take with this summer issue. "MAAD has something this little je-ne-sais-quoi that you can even feel when just talking to her. She possesses the potential of being the next big thing, and it would have been a big mistake not to put the lights on her at this time in her career." - Sarah Diouf, Editor-in-Chief


MAAD*MOISELLE will be releasing The Lady and a Tramp produced single "GLITTER" in avant-première, with an exclusive single cover for Ghubar on July 18th, on www.ghubar-magazine.com. Stay Tuned!
GHUBAR GOES MAAD* ISSUE ONLINE ON TUESDAY JULY 12TH
only on www.ghubar-magazine.com !
