Tiffany Evans is pregnant. The 19-year-old revealed the shocking news exclusively to ESSENCE Magazine today. Check out an excerpt from her interview:
You’ve been quietly recording new music for a while now. Tell us about your new new EP, Take 1.
TIFFANY EVANS: Over the last two years, I’ve been growing and going through things like love. I don’t want to say this EP is exposing, but it is to me. When I first came out I didn’t write anything. My fans have never heard any music written by me. I thought it was important to do so this time around. I also thought it was important for me to experience life and go through things to write about them from a true place. I wanted this project to be organic. I had to take myself down a notch and go through love and write about it. The direction of Take 1 is very funky, very soulful, very R&B. It’s womanly. It’s me starting over. It’s me reintroducing myself to everyone and finally establishing who I am as an artist. It’s a real coming of age project for me. This EP was also the quickest way to give new music to my fans. I’ve been working on it all by myself, I feel like that chance now to really establish who I am music wise and who I am as an artist. This is that chance for me.
ESSENCE.com: You mentioned love quite a few times and your first single is titled “If You Love Me.” What is it about?
EVANS: It’s about a couple breaking up. When I hear a lot of songs, it’s about men pursuing the girl, saying he wants to stay with her. This time around I’m not asking for another chance, but I’m the one pursuing him. I tell him let’s get real. Let’s stick it out. Let’s get strong. The song is really about sticking by someone, loving someone through it all. It’s one of the most emotional records that I’ve ever written and it’s one of my favorites. I just hope it helps someone. I wrote in 15 minutes because I was going through that situation. Read more
