Ever heard that you could pay for school but you could not buy class? Def Jam has done it again and this time not with one pop star, but four. Naomi, Lesley, Binkie, and Sarah, also known as Electrik Red, released their debut album How To Be A Lady: Vol 1 with the help of producers such as The Dream and Tricky. The four met as backup dancers on Usher’s Confessions tour, and were also featured on Ciara’s video “Like A Boy”, and you can tell if you watch the way they move!

It’s a clever vulgarity that rings hit because of songs of the album like “WFY”—in other words we f**k you. “Wonder if you fellas knew the truth/yall don’t f**k us n**ga we f**k you/” as well as song “Devotion” “Lock it on my body boy come in/Ima rock it like a baby in the crib/give you the whole thing not the cliff/now let me feel you under my skin/.”
According to Electrik Red’s Myspace Bio-
“I’d like people to hear four strong women who are very comfortable with their sexuality and with what we can bring to the world,” says Lesley
