Joining Wayne and Bey in the record book are Willow Smith who at 10 years old whipped her way on to the list as the “Youngest Transatlantic Top 20 Artist and Rihanna who scored the record for Most US #1 Singles in a Year by a female.
Willow Smith also made the list as the Youngest Top 20 Transatlantic Star, along with artists Lady Gaga, Adele, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, who also made the record books.
Having been the featured rapper on songs by Red Cafe, Fabolous, Willow Smith, Jae Mills, Amerie, and many more, Shakedown’s cover girl Lore’l is ready to, not only take her music career to the next level, but has also set off her modeling career w/ a photo shoot for Felix Natal Jr.
Those who are destined for greatness are created as an outlet. They become a voice that not only speaks to, but touches people everywhere. This is what has been said about Shakedown Entertainment’s newest artist, the 22 year old Lore’l who was born in Brooklyn, NY but represents NJ and Miami as well. Lore’l began working in Promotions & Marketing for Sony records at age 16 and quickly advanced on an upward spiral. She dedicated all of her free time to pursuing a career as an artist. Lore’l started off singing and doing hooks for local rappers and then began rapping herself. Her participation in daily freestyle sessions in the “Training Room” with the legendary underground group, The Outsidaz, honed Lore’l’s rap skills to be razor sharp. She continued to move discreetly through the industry on a variety of levels, and was, and still is, unforgettable and highly favored. Lore’l, the name, represents her “style of difference” that will separate her from all the others.
Executives at Sony records would often call on the teenaged Lore’l to spit a rhyme at the drop of a hat and there were many a rap battle in those offices where Lore’l would shine. That led to Lore’l being featured on the remix of Lyfe Jennings’ hit single “Must be Nice”. In tune with her keepin’ an ear to the street persona Lore’l became part of New York’s biggest women club promotions company, Jingling Baby. Her name began to sizzle as she grabbed the attention of event goers and she met Red Cafe during a party he hosted for Jingling Baby. Soon after, Lore’l was featured on T.I.’s Grand Hustle Compilation Mixtape.
In late 2006, Lore’l moved to South Beach, Miami and began her studies towards a career in Entertainment Law. During that time she remained in touch with Red Cafe and it was no surprise that she was once again back on the rap scene. Santos Miami Live became her stomping grounds and the interest in Lore’l began to rise as she performed weekly. While keeping to her studies Lore’l was performing, recording, managing local artists, and working for Slip n Slide records. After hearing a few songs Lore’l had completed, Red Cafe offered her an opportunity to join Shakedown and immediately put her on the remix to his smash hit, Hottest In The Hood with himself, Diddy, Lloyd Banks, Juelz Santana, & Busta Rhymes, to an amazing response around the country. Lore’l packed up her belongings, her dog, and drove solo from Miami back to her home in NYC and the rest of the movie has yet to be written…
