R.I.P. Natina Reed (Of Blaque)


It saddens me to announce that Natina Reed (middle), who was 1/3 of the R&B trio Blaque, has passed away. She was only 32.

We have received confirmation from her family regarding the passing and the details around the tragic situation:

Natina was walking home from store on Lawrenceville Highway and was struck by a vehicle which killed her. It was not a hit and run. The couple in the car jumped out and attempted to save her. They called 911 and attempted to revive her. Paramedics came but they could not revive her.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of Natina. We on the site have always been very supportive of Blaque and we were definitely excited about a potential comeback from the group.

    YKIGS, I would like to personally say shout out to you for all that you do for the genre of R&B and Soul. That interview that you conducted with Natina a couple months ago was so amazing, and I was so happy to hear from her and to know that she was well and was getting ready to do more things musically. This site is very important, and I just want to say thank you for that.
    RIP to Natina and her whole family.

    This is such a tragic time. Had the pleasure of speaking with her a few weeks back and she was so excited to be back in the studio, working on both her solo material and Blaque records. Not to mention filming more footage for the Blaque documentary they planned on pitching again.
