We move into the next edition of our Artist Top 10 List feature by revisiting the discography of R&B singer Tweet to pick out her best songs. Tweet is one of those artists who too often goes under appreciated. However it seems like any true R&B lover you speak with knows how special of an artist she is.
She began her ascent to stardom as part of DeVante Swing’s Da Bassment crew as part of the group Sugah. It was there that she connected with Missy Elliott who eventually signed her as a solo artist. Those two have been creating special music ever since.
Perhaps Tweet often goes overlooked because she’s only released three albums in the past two decades. Regardless of that, she’s given us plenty of good songs that it was easy to pick what we consider her 10 best songs and find room for some honorable mentions. This doesn’t even include some of the great songs she’s been featured on over the years.
