Although she did a marvelous job portraying Faith Evans in the 2009 Notorious, it is time to meet the person behind the character: Antonique Smith. The beauty is both an actress and singer, as she portrayed in the film and she is starting off her music career like any artist would: with a GRAMMY nomination.
Her debut single, Hold Up Wait A Minute (Woo Woo) recieved a Grammy nod in the category for Best R&B Performance and Smith has a great chance at winning. Not only does Smith have a powerful voice , but she has great meaning behind the record, describing it as, “an anthem for people worldwide that demand respect”.
In the video below, she feels disrespect from her lame boyfriend who is cheating on her and upgrades to the handsome actor/photographer Lance Gross. All in all, Smith is about to make a huge splash on the R&B scene! Check out the video below and watch the Grammy’s this Sunday at 8pm on CBS to see if Smith will win!
