Syleena Johnson has been silently dominating R & B since the mid-90’s. Her first project was a collaboration album with her father, the legendary Sly Johnson. The album was titled, This Time Together By Father and Daughter, and was released in 1995. Syleena released her solo debut four years later independently, titled Love Hangover. After making waves on her own, Jive Records gave her a deal.
She has since released 5 albums, each titled after a chapter of her life. Three of the releases were put out by Jive Records, while the two most recent albums have been released independently including the 2011 released Chapter V: Underrated.
Syleena Johnson is a staple of Chicago based artists, having worked with R. Kelly, Twista, and most famously with Kanye West on “All Falls Down.”
