Laurieann Gibson, perhaps best known to pop fans as Lady Gaga‘s genius pre-ARTPOP choreographer, has signed a record deal with Justin Timberlake‘s manager Johnny Wright and reinvented herself as Harlee. The 44-year-old even filmed an eye-popping video (above) to herald her arrival on the music scene but can she actually sing?
There’s not enough evidence to give an accurate answer to that question but Laurieann/Harlee can definitely hold a tune. She released a single in 2012 called “Last Chance” (it turned out to be an inaccurate title) that was a commercial failure but absolutely enjoyable in a generic dance-pop kind of way. All in all, there’s cause to the cautiously optimistic about the newest diva on the block.
Does Harlee have what it takes to be a pop star? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
