tatyana ali (hello)*Fifteen years after her debut album, Tatyana Ali is back on the music scene with a new EP entitled “Hello.”

We’re talking six new songs written and produced by Ali showcase the more grown-up and sexy side of the talented actress, who just released a short film to introduce her fans to the album.

Here’s what Tatyana has to say about her new music project:

“I’m so excited this day is here! All of this is coming from my heart. It’s my story: it’s what I believe in, what I dream about and what I’ve been through. My hope is to connect to people and share what I love. This is truly an independent effort.”
