WILL THE "REAL" FLOETRY FANS PLEASE STAND UP!!!
Reply Quote

This is BULLSHIT – FRAUD – STRAIGHT ROBBERY!!!

Now although Floetry never went platinum every show I’ve ever been to has been straight SOLD OUT! Floetry has a very loyal fan base Hell friendships and relationships were made within the fan base! I attended the show in Atlanta and was less than satisfied- Not because it was a horrible show- it was an Okay show – But it wasn’t a FLOETRY SHOW!! Not even CLOSE!! And I PAID for a FLOETRY SHOW!!!

 

Amanda Diva is talented in her own right – but she doesn’t even match or compliment Marsha’s energy. There was no chemistry. Just a singer and a MC on stage performing.

 

I am appalled at how a lot of SO-CALLED FLOETRY FANS are ridding the Songstress’s jock talking about how great the show was – Great it was not! And for it to be a FLOETRY SHOW it was just pitiful.  I am a huge fan of both the Songstress and the Floacist (Huge Fan). Last I heard the Songstress had been signed by Dr. Dre to AFTERMATH and was working on her solo album. I don’t know what happened- so I want really speak on it but I will say this – If that fell through, apologies need to be made – pride swallowed – and friendship mended so that FLOETRY can do what FLOETRY does – save lives through music. Maybe it’s just Music to some of yall – but for most of us FLOETRY was a movement – and it doesn’t exist without the FLOacistpOETRY. I find it hard to believe that the FLOACIST – who was solely doing FLOETRY – would be the one to dismantle FLOETRY as opposed to the SONGSTRESS who was the 1st one to come out and say she4 was going solo – got signed to another record label (while recording and touring as FLOERY) and sang the hook on just about every hot song Dre put out (all while touring as FLOETRY) – But there are only 2 people who truly know what happened.

 

I think it’s BLASHPEMY to lure LOYAL SUPPORTIVE FLOETRY FANS out to an Amanda Diva & Marsha Ambrosius Hip-Hop show – by using the FLOETRY name!

It seems like Marsha felt that and tried to make up for it by singing the hook on damn near every FLOETRY song during the encore.

 

I LOVE FLOETRY

 

If the “REAL FLOETRY” can come back together – make the music and give the shows that got them where they are now (didn’t Dr. Dre approach the Songstress right after watching a FLOETRY show?) then I’ll be in da front row (wit all 10 of da fam) as usual – singing and flowin right along wit yall.

 

If the SONGSTRESS wants to go solo – GREAT! I’ll support that too. I think her voice is One in a Kajillion! Same thing for the Floacist if she wants to go solo. She speaks to my soul with her poetry and she is one of the most entertaining people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. But don’t Lie to me and act as though the fans don’t matter – and will just listen to anything. Its quite the opposite. FLOETRY fans are now accustom to inspirational poetic music and Love songs. FLOETRY made us all rethink Real music! Solo means SOLO! Call it that! FLOETRY is NATALIE “FLOACIST” STEWART & MARSHA “SONGSTRESS” AMBROSIUS! You cant remix Purity!!!

Nothing against Amanda Diva. I think she is mad talented and can sing. But FLOETRY – It was not!

 

I’m a real fan – and I’m not buying in to FLOETRY without the FLOacistpOETRY!

 

I’m so disappointed about how this is going.  I can only hope and pray that FLOETRY isn’t over. For true FLOETRY fans- it was more than just music or just a concert – and with all I’ve said I still can’t explain how intoxicating the chemistry was between the FLOACIST and the SONGSTRESS!

 

I am truly disheartened.

Here's an old article from 2003, that's says they went platinum.  but if I'm wrong, I'll accept that

Floetry: British duo fuse soul and the spoken word - in the Spotlight - Marsha Ambrosius and Natalie Stewart - Brief Article

 
Meet the songstress, vocalist Marsha Ambrosius. Now meet the floacist, poet Natalie Stewart. Together they make up Floetry, a British duo who draws on the Philadelphia, neo-soul sound with their velvety blend of music and poetry.

Floetic, the group's debut album, has the music industry flowing to the duo's sound. Already platinum, the project received three Grammy nominations earlier this year: Best R&B Urban/Alternative Performance, Best R&B Song and Best Contemporary R&B Album.

The title song, the first single, was a defining anthem that gave listeners a taste of Floetry. The current single, Say Yes, is swallowing up its audience with its seductive lyrics about finding that special someone. The song holds a special meaning to the floacist Natalie, who recently got engaged.

Former basketball rivals, Natalie and Marsha are managed by Julius Erving III, son of basketball great Julius "Dr. J" Erring. They are produced by A Touch of Jazz, which is overseen by Jeffrey "DJ Jazzy Jeff" Townes. Townes is noted for producing Jill Scott and the Roots.

The group's success should come as no surprise. They are no strangers when it comes to making hit music. They've written songs for Jill Scott, Bilal and Glenn Lewis.

They have been lauded for penning Butterflies, one of the biggest songs released from Michael Jackson's Invincible. album. Marsha wrote the song as a teenager. She sang it the way she thought Jackson would perform it. After hearing her demo, Jackson ended up singing it exactly the same way that he heard Marsha sing it.

Getting the group name from a fan who called its sound "flowing poetry," the duo first played Black Lily, the multicultural answer to Lilith Fair. Other performances included the Tanqueray Soul Suite and opening for India Arie.

Currently they are touring with rapper Common.
