A Star in Her Own Right: Beyonce Backup Vocalist, Tiffany Monique, Releases Her Second Independent Video, ‘Anytime’

NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2011 — Singer/Songwriter Tiffany Monique released her new video, “Anytime,” the second single from her debut EP, Nemesis, yesterday on YouTube. The video was produced by Kevin Ryan, directed by “The Last American B-Boy” of Monstar Films and filmed in the singer’s hometown of Newark, New Jersey. Tiffany is most popularly known as one of “The Mamas” — background vocalists for pop superstar, Beyonce. In “Anytime,” the singer showcases her metamorphosis as a woman and singer.

“Anytime” was written by Tiffany Monique and produced by Kwiz of Digital Khaoss Productions. “It’s a song about unrequited love,” says Tiffany. “It was written about a childhood crush who was not interested in me but capitalized on the attention I gave him. Our paths crossed later in adulthood; he said he’d always regard me as the one that got away.” The new video can be viewed on the singer’s website, www.tiffanymonique.com or YouTube:www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwJ52UGsQ3o.

“Tiffany’s voice has effortless strength, sass, seduction, and heart with a tone that puts you at ease,” said Beyonce.”I am very lucky to have worked with her for many years and I am proud that she now has such a wonderful piece of work to share with the world.”

Tiffany Monique’s debut EP, Nemesis, was released worldwide on June 15, 2010 on her independent imprint, Rhythm 252 Music Group.
