Although she originally accepted the give, she released her initial one, the Lil Jon-produced “I REALLY LIKE U,” in past due February 2007, declaring she had made a decision to reject the major-label route to be able to stay accurate to herself and her music also to continue her D.We.Y. method of popularity. Her debut EP, Sex, after that came out the next month over the D.C.-structured indie label The Saturday Team.
