Throwback: Eve-Let Me Blow Ya Mind Featuring Gwen Stefani

 Eve’s “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” collaboration with Gwen Stefani was a successful merging of hip-hop and pop. Eve’s potent delivery of verses and Stefani’s amiable vocals settled over Dr. Dre and Scott Storch’s production with the panache of two boss ladies in the prime of their careers. The video has gone down as one the better moments of early 2000’s hip-hop with both artists in the midst of a funny party-crashing scenario. “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” won the first Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2002 and is Eve’s biggest single. Her debut album Let There Be Eve…Ruff Ryders’ First Lady crystallized her place as a solo artist but Scorpion expanded her artistic reach and she allowed the public to hear her singing voice as opposed to strictly rapping. The choice to combine her singing and rapping got Scorpion compared to Lauryn Hill’s Miseducation album. Scorpion was also nominated for the Best Rap Album Grammy and was no. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop charts and made no.4 on the Billboard 200. Eve has four solo albums and in 2017 she joined The Talk as one of the permanent co-hosts. She is currently working on new music and plans to debut a song on the show in the future.
