Natasha Ramos About
Natasha Ramos is an American singer-songwriter.
Ramos was signed to girl group Anjel in 2000 alongside LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson through Columbia Records and Jagged Edge’s 581 Productions. However, she left a short time after.
In 2002, she referenced several demos for Jennifer Lopez‘ This Is Me..Then album, with her vocals being featured heavily on most of the final album.
In 2003, Ramos signed to Arista and recorded the songs “Midnight Hour” and “Invisible” for the project with The Neptunes, material with Rodney Jerkins, as well as Troy Oliver and MrDEYO, both of whom she had worked with on the Jennifer Lopez album. Oliver also signed her through a joint deal with LA Reid [Arista] and his label Chocolate Factory.
In 2004, after leaving Arista, Pharrell contacted her to join his new ensemble Affair [group], alongside Vanessa Marquez [who had also left Arista to join Star Trak] and Tiffany Villarreal [who had replaced Erica Rivera ] which was to be released through Interscope/Star Trak. They were paid to live together by the label, and recorded half an album of material throughout 2004 and 2005 but never signed an official contract.
Eventually, in 2006, unsatisfied with the lack of contract, Villarreal left the group to sign to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Records and Pharrell signed Ramos as a solo artist to Star Trak, and continued work with Marquez who had already been signed as a solo artist.
In 2011, Ramos released most of the album and its session material, as well as the Arista material, on her mixtape Feelin' Myself.
