TBT: 90’s Rn B star Blu Cantrell throwback tracks

 

Blu Cantrell burst onto the music scene in 2001 with the release of her debut album, So Blu, which features the hit song “Hit ‘Em Style (Oops!).”

The cute singer, who catapulted to fame with her smash song Hit ‘Em Up Style in 2001, was taken into custody by police for a psychological evaluation.

From a failed reality show attempt on Tv ( NBC) and racy photos from her past resurfacing, to her suffering a minor mental breakdown, the press went from bad to worse.

In 2014, when she was reportedly picked up by police in Santa Monica, Calif., after “running through the streets, ranting about people trying to kill her.”

Cantrell was taken into custody around 2 a.m. after witnesses claim the star was shouting about someone giving her “poisonous gas.”

Listen to how powerful her voice was in her most popular hit song.
