At only 26, singer/songwriter Sevyn Streeter already has a decade of music experience on her resume. The Haines City, Florida native got her professional start at 15 in the girl group TG4, and then she ended up in RichGirl. However, in the fickle music industry longevity can be fleeting. Following her stints as a group artist, Streeter tapped into her connections and talents as a writer and penned hits for heavy hitters like Brandy, Justin Bieber, Kelly Rowland, Alicia Keys and Chris Brown. Speaking of Chris Brown, Streeter, who most recently penned Brown’s newest track, “Fine China,” inked a record deal as a performance artist on Brown’s CBE in conjunction with Atlantic Records.
Her solo debut single, “I Like It,” has been generating buzz, especially on 106 & Park, and gaining Streeter a cult following. Streeter visited the JETmag.com staff to share her experiences as an artist but also her plans for solo success. Her debut album isn’t complete just yet but it’s on its way, and from the sound of things thus far, it seems like Sevyn Streeter got next.

Given your history and how hard it can be to become a performer, why didn’t you get comfortable with songwriting?

Because I’ve always wanted to be a performer. I’m definitely the little girl in the mirror with a brush, singing at the top of her lungs to a Whitney record. That’s always been a part of me. But I’ve also wanted to always accept where God places me and when the writing thing came along, of course deep down inside I wanted to be an artist still, even after Rich Girl ended, but I just – you can’t force things and I just accept – okay, this is what God has handed me, it’s songwriting, okay, that’s what I’m going to rock with. And that’s what I did. The solo deal that came along a little after that just happened. Everything has been very organic and not forced and I just feel like my steps have been ordered a little bit.

Sevyn Streeter stopped by “The Breakfast Club” this week to talk about everything from her old days singing in groups and being managed by Chris Stokes to songwriting and working with Chris Brown.

The 26-year-old Atlantic Recording artist has made a name for herself as a writer, writing a number of hits for Brown (“Strip,” “Wet the Bed,” and “Yeah 3x”), Alicia Keys’s “New Day,” and has penned tracks for Brandy, Kelly Rowland, and Estelle. Now branching out on her own solo endeavors, the R&B singer is hitting the scene with her first single “I Like It” off her debut solo album.

Catch up with what Sevyn had to share below:

How She Met Up with Chris Brown…We actually had the same management. I was in a group before this called Rich Girl and Tina Davis managed my group and she also managed Chris, so we were literally at the same studio one day working and I asked him if I could come and write with him and he said yeah. So I’ve just been writing every since.

Working with Chris Stokes…You know what it was, I didn’t see anything weird, it was very professional. I was in a sister group to them…It was cool, it was great, it was a great experience for me. It was my first deal so it was great.

Signing to Chris Brown Despite His Controversy…You know, no. I just feel like at the end of the day I’m about my music and about work and about professionalism and so is he and we work very well together, so it’s been great.

If she ever Cheated…I haven’t, I’m not a cheater. Honestly, I would tell you. If I ever cheated I would tell you. I’m not a cheater.

On Her Ex-boyfriend…You know what it just didn’t work out that very well. He messed up.

If he Cheated…He did, he messed up.

If She Would Write about her Ex…I will Taylor Swift that hoe in two seconds.

Catching Him…You know what we ended up breaking up and it came out afterwards.

Angela Yee then initiated a game of 76 seconds with Sevyn.

I got my heart broken when…I got cheated on

It’s so much better raw…No, It’s not, it’s never better like that.

My favorite position…I like to mix it up

My celebrity boyfriend would be…Oh, I’d say Trey

Please don’t compare me to…Just all of the brown skin girls. We’re brown skin and we’re different in our own right.

My porno would be called…Seven Ways

My drink of choice…Vodka

My secret fetish…I don’t know, I don’t really have a secret fetish.

My worst sexual experience…I think everybody’s first time is their worst sexual experience. Yeah, My fist was my worst.

ESSENCE.com: Who is Sevyn Streeter? 

SEVYN STREETER: Sevyn Streeter is a singer. A performer. A writer. Just a lover of music. I love music. I’m obsessed with it. 

ESSENCE.com: You’ve worked very closely with Chris Brown over the years. What’s the best lesson he’s taught you as an artist?

STREETER: He definitely taught me to take my time and to not stress in the studio. I’m a little bit obsessive and I’ll do a take 20 times. He doesn’t really let me do that and it’s helped me so much. Even video wise—he was on the set of my video and was giving me pointers on how to come across through the camera. Little things here and there. No matter what arena we’re in, he always has some type of advice for me.
