MUSIC FAB: Olivia's "Happened To Me"

On the heels of her season 2 return to VH1's "Love & Hip Hop" reality show, Olivia Longott just dropped her upbeat new single, "Happened To Me."

 

Check it under the cut, plus deets on her brand new album...

The 30-year-old pretty R&B chick is serious about being known in this game for her vocals, after getting dropped a few years ago by 50 Cent & G-Unit.  So Olivia dropped another track off her upcoming album after her song "December," which she debuted on the VH1 show last season, received great fan feedback.

Here's her new single "Happened To Me":

 

And some behind the scenes footage of her and producers Big Sound Music making the vintage hip-hop sounding track:

 

Olivia's new album Show The World is set to hit shelves soon.

Beautiful voice but she

Beautiful voice but she doesn't evoke emotion with her singing. And perhaps the lyrics wouldn't be compared to others if she changed it to "'cause you're the ONE thing, that I wish never happened to me." Saying BEST doesn't really make sense (as someone already stated)...Erm, what else...the vocals and arrangements kind of remind me of a signature Brandy sound. I wish her well because of her tenacity, if nothing else, however she needs SOMETHING to make her sound more current and exclusive. Good luck Olivia :-)

The song is ok. I think it

The song is ok. I think it could have had more feeling. But her attitude is wack, I think that's why she isn't signed. She acts like a man, female rappers are more feminine then her. she doesn't have any sex appeal unless she's in a photo, and even then that's occasionally, She's very arrogant and she needs to humble herself she WAS somebody in the music world, not any more. She seems very fake and jealous on tv too. She's a pretty girl but she acts very ugly.

This is definitely a sample

This is definitely a sample of "The Things You Do" by Gina Thompson. The song is just okay, nothing spectacular. Also I think she needs to feature a rapper on this. She needs to step it up and humble herself. She comes across as very arrogant towards Somaya and it seems Somaya got some good producers, features and a mix tape out. Catch up Olivia. If this is your passion, you must did deep.

Because if you're serious

Because if you're serious about quickly replacing your full time income (just to start) and spending your time doing what YOU want to do, I'm ready to show you exactly how I was able to go from $600 to my name to bringing in $6,000 per month like clockwork. And what's best is it will work for you even if you're totally clueless about the Internet or technology, have no experience or education and just wanna chill out in your house and never talk to anybody. This system works because YOU don't have to! Get the details .. Just type in your name, email and phone below. Then get ready to experience something different. Something that actually works!! http://BeInspired.OneBigPowerline.com ttys GodBless!!:)

I hate this song just like I

I hate this song just like I hate Beyonce's song... that sound just like this. "The Best thing that I wished never happened to me"... "I'll never be the best thing you never had"..."I will always be the best thing you never had".....the best? isn't that compliment instead of a put down? Anywho... Say what you want, yes, I know both songs have sarcastic undertones, but that does excludes them both from being extremely stupid.

I LIKED Olivia but she be

I LIKED Olivia but she be actin too Hollywood for me...I waited and waited for her "live stream" for like a month and helped her get more folllowers in order to get the live stream and then she finally had the stream and acted too hollywood to even sit and talk to us fans....she just kept poppin in sparingly like she was too busy too even speak to us cuz she was recording. but why choose to stream live when you are working? That really pissed me off...I hate supporting artists who don't appreciate their fans...

She does act like a dude. Even in the room with all those dudes, you can't even spot he female...she talks and acts like a dude sitting with her legs open. She was born a dude and there is NOTHING feminine about this tranny. She stole bad boy Gina Thompson "the things you do" instrumental. Diddy get your money! She tries to hard to be down.

Where do I begin. 1st)

Where do I begin. 1st) Olivia is a liar! She isn't signed to ANY record label like she's been saying in her interviews on radio and even on the show. She is signed to Dollaz Unlimited which is her manger's mom and pop indie label. She claimed to be signed to Universal. Girl bye. And she perpetuated this lie since last year. She also claims that she can't state what label she's on, she can't say, why? Because she's not signed. Nobody will sign her. Though she does look good for her age, she's 31. It's a wrap for her career. She's simply too old to JUST be coming out. She also claims to be in her mid twenties, but if you look at her past interviews from say 2001, she was 21 LOL, and in the 2005 there were interviews where she claimed to be 25. Olivia is a liar. I do believe she's talented, but there's just no room for her in today's market. She'd be better off becoming a baby's mother while she still has the chance. Does Olivia still live with her parents?? I can't with this girl.

It dont appear like she on a real label just her manager's like you said "mom and pop" joint..i hear he spends more time sleeping with random groupies and Olivia's fans then being a real manager to her..they say he just chasin money wit Olivia ....Olivia kinda clueless and live in her own world...I hope she get a deal and actually sells some joints tho...but her brand/business look shotty at times...

It reminds me of Gina

It reminds me of Gina Thompson 'The things you do', and Mary J. Blige 'I can love you' as far as the beat is concerned. As far as the lyrics, Beyonce and Olivia are not the first and will not be the last to have this type of song.

Ummm, maybe my comprehension skills aren't as up to par as I thought, but where does Beyonce come into this discussion? This is about Olivia.

I don't know. Everyone just

I don't know. Everyone just kept comparing this song to 'Best thing I never had'. So I was just saying that Olivia and Beyonce are not the first ones to have a song with that type of subject matter, and they won't be the last.

Not feeling the song at

Not feeling the song at all...sounds like something we already heard before.Olivia try working with some 20 year olds or something cuz the old people you got picking your music is making you sound dated. Your voice is sub par on all of your songs...it sounds like you are just doing your job to finish the song and not selling what you are singing about plus all your songs sound like you are copying what other people have already done. If you want people to pay attention to you...put out some better music...stop acting like a groupie and chasin after athletes.and stop doing reality shows cuz you come off corny and not likeable and it dont help that your manager is a bitchass. Olivia has a long way to go....and she getting old...I wonder why no label has signed her by now? That says a lot.....I respect Olivia's hustle though but you can find an Olivia on every corner...she aint a star.

Its a melange between Gina Thompsons "The Things you do" (ie. missy elliot "he he he he how") and beyonce's Best Thing I never Had. (Yea, I thought I was the only one who thought that) Im really rooting for her but this track is not gonna be the one to get her back in the game.

Really??? Seriously?? She is

Really??? Seriously?? She is beautiful but her voice is not spectacular. And the concept has been done and mastered by Beyonce (Best Thing I Never Had) ... If I could give any advice, find another hobby and work to make money off of that because in all this time, singing just hasn't been your niche. I hate to say it but let it go. =\
