Tiffany Evans was only 12-years-old when she entered the music scene with her debut single “Promise Ring” featuring Ciara.
Eight years later, the now 19-year-old had announced via Essence.com that not only has she been married for two years but she’s expecting her first child in October.
Evans has also dropped “If You Love Me,” the first single off of her upcoming EP Take 1 today [June 8], which will be released in two installments with the first part dropping sometime this month.
On her EP: Over the last two years, I’ve been growing and going through things like love. I don’t want to say this EP is exposing, but it is to me. When I first came out I didn’t write anything. My fans have never heard any music written by me. I thought it was important to do so this time around. I also thought it was important for me to experience life and go through things to write about them from a true place. I wanted this project to be organic. I had to take myself down a notch and go through love and write about it. The direction of Take 1 is very funky, very soulful, very R&B. It’s womanly. It’s me starting over. It’s me reintroducing myself to everyone and finally establishing who I am as an artist. It’s a real coming of age project for me. This EP was also the quickest way to give new music to my fans. I’ve been working on it all by myself, I feel like that chance now to really establish who I am music wise and who I am as an artist. This is that chance for me.
On competing with Rihanna and Beyonce: They are amazing artists and I respect them for their craft. But honestly, I do not focus on other female artists. Sometimes when you’re looking at other people you can lose yourself. I just want make myself known for my fans. I just want them to know who I am. I don’t want to compete with anyone. I want to push myself. You truly can’t do that if you’re competing with everyone else. I really want to be the greatest I can be.
