The vocal half of Grammy-nominated duo Floetry, Marsha Ambrosius, has signed a solo recording deal with hip-hop hitmaker Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Records, according to The singer-songwriter says she is thrilled at the chance to work with Dre, who has only worked on a few projects in recent years. “Who wouldn’t? It’s a lifetime opportunity,” she said, adding, “It’s not like he offers to do an album with everybody.” The invitation to work with the rapper-producer came late last year, when Ambrosius and partner Natalie Stewart were performing two Floetry shows at The Roxy in Los Angeles. The audience included a number of other music makers, including Dre and Prince. Ambrosius ran into Dre later the same week, and when he played her a track she soon found herself in his studio, singing the vocal hook. The seeds for the Ambrosius solo project were own.
