“Closet Freak” Single Cover Revealed
Straight From The A, a blog about all things Atlanta, recently posted the single cover for Lawrence Washington’s (Miss Lawrence) “Closet Freak” and I am so thankful. I have been waiting to chime in on Washington’s new music career for a while now.
For those of you who follow The Real Housewives of Atlanta, no introductions are needed. For those of you who don’t, Lawrence is the best-friend and hairstylist of housewife, Sheree Whitfield. Housewife, Kandi Burruss has taken some of his time away from the scissors and directed him to a mic. Burruss and Kandi Koated Entertainment presents Miss Lawrence.
Chiming in…Miss Lawrence’s talent, style, and charisma makes him the complete package as a recording artist. Although it should not matter, his sexuality is an added bonus. It was bold of Burruss to take on an artist that may have not been perceived well but she chose the best openly gay man for the job. Lawrence is confident in his lifestyle and doesn’t apologize for being who he is. Not to mention there are so many opportunities for marketing and publicity. Being an openly gay African-American recording artist demands attention in itself so, promoting the music should be easy with careful planning and the right use of words.
I would say about 70% of recording artist today are all working inside the same box. So when someone outside the box steps on the scene it is like a breath of fresh air. Let’s just say, I am enjoying the fresh air.
Miss Lawrence’s “Closet Freak” will be available for download January 28th, 2011 on iTunes.
For now, check out an old performance of Miss Lawrence debuting his single.
