    (January 25, 2017) Think back to the moment you just knew you ran out of 'can' with your ex: butterflies became heartburn, your dream boo became a nightmare and the entire drama had you ready to exit stage left. Not exactly a good feeling, but Yolanda Johnson captures that malaise perfectly with her saucy, mid-tempo goodbye grind, "Range Rover." 

    (January 25, 2017) Think back to the moment you just knew you ran out of 'can' with your ex: butterflies became heartburn, your dream boo became a nightmare and the entire drama had you ready to exit stage left. Not exactly a good feeling, but Yolanda Johnson captures that malaise perfectly with her saucy, mid-tempo goodbye grind, "Range Rover." 

    A Brooklyn-born native and the daughter of musician Samuel Johnathan Johnson (sampled via Jadakiss's "We Gon Make It"), the vocalist and songwriter incorporated her early and eclectic influences (Al Jarreau, Diana Ross, Donnie Hathaway) into her natural gifts and dropped her first EP, Sweet Yesterday, in 2002. Its follow-up, 2007's Violet Flower, caught the notice of BET via the single "Individual" and became the theme music for the network's hit show, BET Soul Sessions. Johnson's latest project, Camille Leon, marks her return to the music scene and Yolanda's "Range Rover"---"No flowers can fix, don't send me no gifts/no empty promises, I'm immune to it"----is poised to become a "packin' up the suitcase, peace, two fingers" anthem for 2017.
