imageDani Stevenson (born in 1980 in Atlanta, Georgia) is a female R&B singer from the 2000s.

She moved to Harlem, New York when she was 12 years old. After arriving in Harlem, Dani had aspirations of having a music career.

Dani performed the National Anthem at a junior high graduation & participated in various talent concerts. In 1998, she performed at the Greenwich Village open-mike circuit.

In August of 2001, Dani met music producer Rhemario Webber through a mutual friend.

Together, they worked on a 10-track demo which resulted in Dani signing a contract with Universal Records in February of 2002.

After signing to the label, Universal Records suggested that Dani contribute vocals to rapper & labelmate Nelly’s 2002 number-one hit single “Hot in Herre” which she agreed to.

After the success of “Hot in Herre,” Universal Records allowed Dani to prepare her debut album.

She wrote 11 out of 13 tracks & also incorporated the 10-track demo to her debut album which would be titled “Is There Another?!” and scheduled to be released in March of 2003. imageOn September 17, 2002, Dani released her debut single “Honk Your Horn” featuring rapper Missy Elliott (who also produced the song).

The song didn’t make the charts until October of 2003 and managed to chart at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart and #48 on Billboard’s Hot R&B\Hip-Hop Singles Sales chart. imageIn August of 2002, the soundtrack to the film “xXx” was released which featured Dani’s song “Yo, Yo, Yo” that would be released as her follow-up single on April 29, 2003.

The song managed to peak at #71 on Billboard’s Hot R&B\Hip-Hop Singles Sales chart.

By 2004, Dani’s debut album passed its scheduled release date and due to the commercial failure of both singles, Dani left Universal Records & the album was shelved.

After that, it seemed as if Dani faded into obscurity, but in 2006, she contributed to Norman Hedman’s Tropique final album “Garden of Forbidden Fruit.” imageIn 2010, Dani signed a new record deal with Starrlet Entertainment & released a single called “Wishing Well.” It’s unknown how or if the song ever charted.

In 2011, she began working with rapper DMX and contributed DMX & New Orleans rap group N.O.4’s collaborative single “Tell Ya Friends” and appeared in the music video for the song.

Dani also made an appearance on DMX’s album “Undisputed” on the track “Sucka For Love.”

These days, Dani performs with a new music group called Bride and the Grooms.
