It took damn-near forever, but local soul vocalist ALGEBRA finally broke onto the national scene. Born and raised in Atlanta, Algebra has been kicking around locally for years. She signed to Dallas Austins Rowdy Records while still a student at North Atlanta High School, then spent a year on Motown Records all without releasing an album. But check VH1 Soul or BET-J and youll see her video, U Do It for Me, in heavy rotation and thats a rare feat for A-town soul folks. Expect to hear much more of her Southern rap-meets-soul stylings after her debut album drops sometime this fall on Kedar Entertainment.
