I remembered that video forever and couldn't find it for a long time. She came off a bit like a Missy clone but she did make her own way with powerful vocals and collaborations with everyone from Roc-a-fella to Murder Inc., even doing a stint with Cash Money, but her career never hit those highs that it should have for a talented singer.
Nicole Wray had a decent little first album, sold a few copies but never achieved the success that Mo had. Eventually, she resurfaced with Roc-a-fella right before the demise of that record label and is still trying to get a foothold. Periodically I see something with her name on it.
Now her sophomore album never released however, I do have it somehow.
Gina Thompson wasn't exclusively on Missy's album however, this only single I ever heard from her was a Missy product:
and yes I love this video.
Not to mention, the group which Missy was a part of when she very first hit the scene, Sista, with Brand Nu.
It's safe to say Missy has always been surrounded by talent in all capacities, but dealing with her is almist as bad as dealing with Puffy. The one thing is that people actually will remember you and you will get a shot to succeed. With that I'm sad to say good-bye to Jazmin Sullivan who is going to go and take a break from recording and the industry. I have this feeling we won't hear from her again. These things tend to go in circles...
