Beyonce, Lil Wayne Inspire NiRe AllDai's 'Boss-Bitch-Behavior'

<P>Performing at the International Dance Music Awards in Miami in March and launching her first music video for her club single <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_VcKTkY4Vk" target="_blank">"Inside Out"</a> are just two of Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter NiR&#233; AllDai's endeavors since first stepping out as an artist. Her journey, which today sees her selecting songs &#8212; including tracks produced by Timbaland and the Stargate camp &#8212; for her upcoming debut album, actually began as a writer for other producers and artists.</P><P>"I've always been an artist," NiR&#233; told MTV News. "But my manager was like, 'Let's work this [writer] angle,' and it worked well because I was able to build a lot of really great relationships with dope producers who ended up helping me on my project."</P><P></p><div class="player-placeholder right" title="NiR&#233; AllDai Readies Debut Album" id="vid:789067" width="415" height="255"></div><p></P><P>"I did a first single for Starshell, who was Mary J. Blige's first artist, and the single was called 'SuperLuva' [produced by Fernando Garibay]," NiR&#233; continued. "I had a chance to write with Mary and Swizz [Beatz] and Timbaland and Dr. Dre, who's a really good friend of mine."</P><P>After getting her writing chops up, meeting the right management and finding her A&R at Capitol Records, NiR&#233; was ready to give it her all for a chance to perform for the masses. Her fearlessness, fashion and electricity are depicted vividly in her video for "Inside Out," which was directed by <a href="http://londonalley.com/?director=hannah-lux-davis" target="_blank">Hannah Lux Davis</a>, who also directed videos for Shinedown and Anjulie, among others. NiR&#233; is inspired by some of music's biggest, baddest stars, included among them Missy Elliott, Lil Wayne, and <a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/knowles_beyonce/artist.jhtml">Beyonc&#233;</a>.</P><P>"Beyonc&#233; is the perfect example of what a solo artist should strive for," NiR&#233; said. "If you want to be like 'boss-bitch-behavior'! When I'm in the gym and I'm tired and can't go anymore, I'm like, 'What would Beyonc&#233; do?' She wouldn't stop."</P><P>NiR&#233; AllDai will release her second club single, "Hella Bad," soon, with a radio single to follow. She plans to release her as-yet-untitled debut album sometime this year, and she also has her fingers crossed for another, long-awaited opportunity.</P><P>"I've been looking forward to the <i>Detox,</i> [album]' NiR&#233; said. "He's a genius. We have a couple of songs on there. So Dre, please!"</P><P>For more info on NiR&#233; AllDai, check out her <a href="http://nirealldai.com/" target="_blank">website</a>.</p>
