Still in the W(rapper): Electrik Red – So Good

I have been meaning to talk about these ladies for a minute, mostly because they are co-signed by TheDream and their upcoming debut album, How To Be a Lady Volume 1, is being touted by Island Def Jam honcho L.A Reid as “a female version of [Dream’s first album] Love/Hate” Upon first glance of the ladies, I recognized at least three faces. That’s because these ladies have been prominent video vixens/dancers and have appeared in videos such as Pretty Ricky’s Grind with me, Ying Yang Twins (remember dem?) The Whisper Song, and have toured with Usher and Chris Brown. Two of these ChokLit ladies  are actually originally from Toronto (Go Girls!)

Read on…

So, Electrik Red are already beautiful (check!), can dance (check!) and can sing. Oh well, two out of the three ain’t all bad… But seriously, these girls have a Vanity 6 kind of thing that works really well for them, sort of like an Urban version of the Pussycat dolls, but less…naked provacative. For some reason, it has taken Island Def Jam three tries (and 2 horrible videos) to finally make the right choice! (I thought we were in a Recession? Hmmm) So Good is a flirty, cute, easy-going track that doesn’t hit you in your face like Drank in my cup did (N-O, try again ladies!) Also, the video is very nicely done! The ladies all look great and the minimal splash of color against the white background is a Boss look. Check out the video below and let me know what you all think . I will def do a bigger feature on these ladies in the future.

  1. i dont recognize them, but thats cool that theyve gone from being video girls to musicians, wish them the best!

    too sleepy to watch the whole video.

  2. TheDream is an excellent songwriter so hopefully he contributed a lot to this project. It seems the Age of the Groups is a thing of the past so I don’t think they will fare well. Could see this being a slept-on album of sorts….
    That’s cool that 2 of the 4 are holding Canada down, eh? 😉

  3. I think this group is amazing!! For one they are all extreamly sexy ladies…2 they all can dance..3 the song is super cute and relative to many females….I love them!!….Ive seen them in person/super friendly. They just need to get the right marketing and they on the money!!!nonetheless awsome video….:)

    • Glad you like them, Evelyn. Their new album, How to Be a Lady was released this past Tuesday, and I am hearing great things about it! Get out and support your girls!
