Biography

Syleena Johnson (born September 2, 1976 in Harvey, Illinois) is an R&B and Soul singer-songwriter and actress.

R&B’s best kept secret is finally out. Another chapter in Syleena Johnson’s book has been written. This time, it is more than recording an album. After amicably leaving an eight-year record deal with Jive Records in 2006, Syleena has launched her own label, Aneelys Records (Syleena spelled backwards). This opportunity comes by way of a label deal with Federal/Universal Music Group.

Syleena previously worked with countless artists and producers such as R. Kelly, Bob Power, Kay Gee, Busta Rhymes, Cam’ Ron, Common, Jermaine Dupri, and Twista. Kanye West blessed her with his production on “Bulls-Eye (Suddenly),” from Chapter 3: The Flesh. Syleena proved to be Kayne’s saving grace as she provided last minute vocals on the hit, “All Falls Down,” which led to a Grammy nomination for both artists.

Artists often fall by the wayside and are rarely heard after leaving a major record label. But, Syleena didn’t allow her split with Jive Records to rip out any pages from her next chapter. She simply took matters into her own hands and decided to go the independent route. With her label, Syleena will finally see the benefits of all her hard work, whether it be working on a personal project or signing other acts. She will finally have the creative control and power to see things through and plan out her career as she sees fit.
