The Philadelphia artist making waves this summer will be Bri Steves, whose latest release Jealousy hit streaming sites on May 3rd. The first original song she released was “Summer’s Mine” co-written with Dyshon Penn. Having recently decided to pursue her musical career after having many personal revelations in the summer of 2015, she’s been fast in making a name for herself. Her album Jealousy is her first release since being signed by Atlantic Records.
Keeping her roots closely tied to her music, she pays homage to classic Philly in the music video for “Summer’s Mine”, something of a personal accomplishment for Bri. The whole vibe of the video is torn from a page written by DJ Jazzy Jeff himself- a Philly artist infamous for his onscreen cameo on Fresh Prince of Belair. Steves makes it no secret, saying how Fresh Prince’s 1991 classic “Summertime” was a huge inspiration for the song. Bri Steves is a refreshing throwback to that 90s R&B feel mixed with a new wave of hip-hop.
