Female singer songwriter and producer Jennifer Bryant who is now widely known as Classy Silhouette first appeared on the music scene as a humble RnB/soul singer songwriter who enjoyed dressing in elegant outfits with marvelous jewelry to accompany it. She was happy to finally have a way to share her music with the world. Her first two albums The Siren’s Song and Blue Silhouette were received by RnB/Soul lovers with open arms. In 2011 the On My Mind Remix took her music in the direction of electronic dance music but anyone who has been paying attention has noticed a shift in the energy of her music. She has gone from RnB/Soul to Electronic Dance Music and Pop and now she has ventured out into Hip Hop and Rap Music. In 2012 she posted on her social media accounts “Life is but a walking shadow who struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more” This quote is from William Shakespeare and if interpreted properly one would understand that this quote has absolutely nothing to do with music but is an analogy about what the cycle of life really is.
“At that point in my career as an independent female artist…I realized that I was born with musical gifts given to me by The Creator (God) and I needed to utilize this time I have here on this earth to express myself and touch as many people as I can. It wasn’t about money or proving myself to be more superior than others but to spread messages of hope that many people need to hear. There were some really unfair things that were done to me that year. My computer was hacked and a lot of my work was plagiarized and paraphrased and seemed to have been distributed among the other artists. It was as if suddenly people who I looked at as fellow musicians and entertainers and wondered if I would one day collaborate with were all parading around with a piece of my soul like it was a joke or a new toy that came out and they were all playing with different pieces of it. I did absolutely nothing to deserve it. I sat back and watched for a while and started researching the different methods of hacking and spying that goes on and different preventative measures to take against it. I realized that what was done to me was indeed a crime and I had been victimized…raped of my individuality and robbed of my creative works. However I had a responsibility to continue on my journey because see this thing is not just about money, riches, and fame. But there was something I still had and that is the creative talent and the ability create more. There were many people out there who needed to know about my reality so they would know that there is hope and life…it just happens and things come through and they pass by and all things happen for a reason. I also realized that just because my heart is sincere that that doesn’t mean everyone else’s heart is. It had to take a wicked, self centered, soulless individual operating on a very spiritual low to pay someone to hack my computer and sit and watch me as I worked on my creative projects and then steal the concepts and even my imagery and outfits and put it on theirselves or another artist and present it as if it was their own work….I write my songs. I am a songwriter. I produce the tracks. I am a producer. These are my expressions from my soul from my experiences I have had in my life…these things are not gimmicks. This is who I am. I am a real person…a woman... Not some pasted together compilation of hacked pieces of some other artists’ hard work….somebody else’s heart and soul”
In 2013 Jennifer Bryant aka Classy Silhouette recorded a hip hop song called “Off With Your Head” The song has an eery, dark yet fascinating feel to it. The video was created & released during the Halloween season and was intended for entertainment purposes only not in anyway associated with any hate groups. It also features a female artist Nena Marcella who makes an appearance on the third verse of the track. The video that wasn’t released until 2015 is even creepier. It starts with a black cat and Classy Silhouette standing at the gates to the cemetery prepared to defend herself against whoever dares to oppose her. And then the scene changes to her floating/ levitating over rows and rows of tombstones as she swings a machete ready to behead the one who dared to cross the boundary….anyway you have to watch it to have that experience…
Somehow her music has remained in this dark warrior vibe channeled through Hip Hop Music that we all thought would be short lived. But we were wrong. Her latest release Pay For That is almost as heavy as the Off With Your Head song/video. This video shows Classy Silhouette in an urban environment…
A closed storefront, traffic etc., but then it changes and she is in a computer and the hacker who has been stealing her work to give it to another artist is sitting there watching her but she knows he/she is watching her and begins to speak to him/her through the computer screen.
At some point she leans in and says to the hacker and the other artist “Why’re you so greedy? Don’t you have everything you need in the world? Why’re you so needy? You can’t take what’s mine I’m not that girl. You could never be me. You would lose it all trying to gain control. You’re so empty. I guess that’s why you tried to steal my soul. Hell No! You gon’ pay for that. You not gon’ get away with that.” Her artist Nena Marcella also appears in this video giving the world a face to put with her rich and heavy voice that had everyone’s imagination running wild for over a year.
“It is quite disappointing to watch someone parade around and pretend to be me in front of the whole world changing into all of my outfits one at a time and not even do it right. I will be looking to be compensated through the courts. That seems to be the only way I will get my justice. They owe me more than an apology and I know they don’t even think they owe me that. Some people don’t know how to give respect where it’s due”
So there you have it. Now you know what Nena Marcella looks like and that she is definitely a woman from birth and a pretty one too. Just not the type you can run over top of. I don’t know about you but I think you can kind of see in Nena Marcella’s eyes that she is not playing either. So if you have been misled by vicious lies and rumors created by jealous competitors that Ms. Nena Marcella is anything other than a woman you have been deceived by false information. Nena Marcella is a real woman.
