Sanaa Lathan, Detail, and DeJ Loaf unite for “Emotional”.
If you recognize the name Sanaa Lathan, it’s because she’s a successful actress, known for her roles in Brown Sugar, Love & Basketball, and currently starring in The Perfect Guy. Why is she suddenly beginning a singing career in her 40s you ask? Well, it all spawned from a conversation with superproducer Detail.
Apparently, Detail approached Lathan following a screening of her recent movie, and they got to talking about how emotional her character’s love interest was, which eventually became the subject of this very song with Detail behind the boards. Add DeJ Loaf with the over-achieving feature, and we’ve got a potential hit on our hands. Let us know what you think of Lathan’s musical debut in the comments below.
