Raven-Symoné has been in the media lately for a number of reasons, most notably for her outspoken and sometimes controversial thoughts and ideas. Her opinions may also be the culprit as to why she may not return for the 20th season of “The View”. Whether she would be leaving on her own accord or being forced out is still unclear.
Being a TV-host was a new gig that Raven-Symoné added to her list of accomplishments. Her original introduction to us was as little Olivia on the Cosby show. For that role she was nominated 3 times for the “Young Artist Award for Exceptional Performance” and also won once. Her most popular and successful role however, was playing the lead in the Disney sitcom “That’s so Raven”.
Another talent we often forget about is Raven’s gift as a singer. Her voice appears on four studio albums as well as four soundtrack albums. Not only did she lend her vocals to the That’s so Raven theme song, but also in the Disney movie “The Cheetah Girls”, in which she plays the lead singer Galleria Garibaldi.
In recent headlines, it looks like Raven-Symoné has returned to her musical roots, releasing two brand new tracks on her Soundcloud account on Saturday. The two tracks, “Cruise Control, and “Sarafina” are described by the artist on her page as “Tis’ Dusk when the war starts” Eerie sounds of melodic, fantasy vocals describing a world that can only be named Sarafina…”, and “A soft melodic transparent story of sex and speed filled with ambient sounds and undertones of sexual frustration.”
