Eve is really working hard to promote her new CD, Here I Am, which hits record store shelves on Tuesday, August 28th. Besides performing on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series, the sista also spent the weekend hitting up all the latest parties in an attempt to keep her name and face out there. Eve’s first week sales in my opinion will speak volumes about not only her future in rap, but the future in general of women in rap music. No female rapper to my knowledge has had a hit album in the past five years- maybe more and at present time there is no female rapper out there that has the potential to rival the men in sales. Lil Kim’s career is pretty much on hold and the same can be said for Foxy Brown whose future seems filled with baby bottles rather than concert stages. That leaves Trina and Remy Ma and neither of them in my opinion has what it takes to keep the legacy of women alive in hip hop.
So that leaves Eve. Can she do it? I don’t know. But when HDD comes out with their first day projections I will be the first to post them here.
In the meantime, check out Eve below performing at the ABC Concert series on Friday, attending the US OPEN’s Official Players Party last night and The Kids Choice Awards tonight.
