Nestled into Antonique Smith's debut single is this crackling line: "see your wining her, after dining me, but what's crazy is, my names on both receipts."
Damn. Preach on.
I came into "Hold Up, Wait A Minute (Woo Woo)" unaware of Smith's powerhouse vocals. I already knew she could act, as in addition to a number of stage and screen roles that she's already done, I best remembered her in a extremely effective role as Zoe Kravitz's older sister in the 2011 flick, Yelling To The Sky (check it out on Netflix --- it's pretty good). Smith is also effective vocal wise as she lays down a vocal assault on the funky brass blasting "Hold Up, Wait A Minute (Woo Woo)", giving off some saucy Blu Cantrell-meets-Christina Aguilera game.
Though this high-octane track has been out for about a year now, the official music video has been released with Larenz Tate at the directing lens, and Lance Gross making an appearance as Smith's suave n' sexy rebound guy. If you haven't gotten into this fireball kiss-off number then dig in, and be on the look-out for Antonique Smith's long-awaited debut album, Love Is Everything when 2015 rolls around.
Woo woo, y'all.
