Who is on the album….Simply Tweet. This time around the artist wanted nothing more than to give you herself. Her image…fresh, clean, and girl next door sexy. She’s always taking the time to remind women that being themselves is sexy enough. Cool as a fan, Tweet has always said “You can call me” and with that stunning smile and east coast persona, she’s here to answer.
In March 2002, Tweet entered the charts with her debut solo single, “Oops (Oh My)”, a risqué song about self-loving and appreciation. The song was produced by Timbaland and featured guest vocals by Missy Elliott. The single hit number one on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and number seven on the Billboard Hot 100, with the help of a remix featuring Fabolous. In April 2002, Tweet released her debut album Southern Hummingbird to mostly strong reviews. The album featured production by Craig Brockman, Nisan Stewart, guitarist John “Jubu” Smith, Timbaland (who contributed four tracks) and Tweet herself. It also featured guest vocals by Elliott on “Oops (Oh My)”,Bilal on “Best Friend”, and BeatClub Records’ Ms. Jade on “Sexual Healing (Oops Pt. 2)”, and included a bonus track performed by Elliott, “Big Spender”. The album was filled with soul-stirring vocals and lyrics taken from Tweet’s own life experiences. The album spawned another two singles, Timbaland-produced “Call Me”, and the radio single “Smoking Cigarettes”, which had a video shot and directed by Little X but was never released. The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 chart.
