NEW MUSIC: DJ Assad feat. Sabrina Washington - Make It Hot

Sabrina Washington is best known as one-third and lead vocalist of early 00's UK R&B/Garage girl group Mis-teeq, who were acclaimed as the UK's answer to Destiny's Child and scored a string of radio smashes before abruptly disbanding when their label went bankrupt. Since then she's been keeping things relatively quiet - briefly adopting the name Puma Washington, releasing a standalone single "OMG" back in 2010 and at one point discretely negotiating a deal with US label Young Money/Cash Money (Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj) although it's unclear what - if anything - ever came of that.

Now she's back with "Make It Hot", a collaboration with French DJ Assad which is already garnering airplay at French radio.  It's completely not what you'd expect from Sabrina-from-Mis-teeq and a dancefloor banger of the kind that's very in vogue right now - whilst I hope it's a hit for her (even if just in France), I hope harder a Mis-teeq reunion happens sooner rather than later.
