Biography

Sherell Rowe was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and was a military brat that spent most of her time around the country. She started singing in a studio when she was 14 and continued sharpening her abilities through her high school choir. Her family decided to settle in Northern Virginia also known as the Metropolitan area. Washington DC is known for a heavily percussion driven sound called Go Go and Sherell quickly took interest in the local go-go scene. She joined a band called Perfection as their lead female vocalist and built a reputation for her no-nonsense vocals and her strong swagger. Holding her own among her male counterparts and not settling for a sub par sound came natural to her. And it wasn't long before she realized her potential was built for something much bigger. Sherell worked as an office manager at a well known recording studio in the area called Night Flight Studio. She was exposed to many artists, major and local, and was able to experience how the business side of the industry works. Sherell was introduced to Jesse, who is the CEO of Dark Planet Records, and when she heard he was interested in kicking off a record company that was going to be left field and experimental, she jumped at the opportunity. Finally finding comfort with a label who allows her to express herself creatively and channel all of her influences into her own sound.

Sex Toy

Written By: Sherell Rowe; A. Bilal

Pornographic,
Any way you want you can have it.
I'm an addict...
Touch me if you want you can grab it...
Make me pop.
I am your battery and you'll never stop.
Tick to the tock.
Time is of the essence,
Show me what you're blessed with.

Roar...
I'll be your sex toy.
Boy...
I'll be your sex toy.

You're a dragon,
Animal instincts,
You are my habit.
And I won't have it,
Let's go to the back and go at it, (like rabbits)
Lick my boots.
Didn't I tell you that I was the truth...
I've got the proof.
You get me use.

Roar...
I'll be your sex toy.
Boy...
I'll be your sex toy.

Let's mess around,
'Cause you're on my playground,
I'm not holding back my horses,
Keep your end of the portion,
And as freak as it sounds,
Not outstepping our bounds,
Keep driving until we're lost,
There's no beated pathways just horses...

Woman

Written By: Sherell Rowe / A. Bilal

Woman

If I called you, would you come?
Would you walk or would you run?
Stare down the barrel of my gun
For a piece of my sweet...
You say you want me (want me)
Well, how bad?
Is it the best you ever had?
I give you life
I take it back.
Come run a mile or two on my track...

You wanna smash
I'm tryin to crash
You wanna sprint
I'm tryin to dash
You're writin' checks
I'm takin' cash
You wanna ride
Well here's your pass...

Hook
You told me what you wanted like I,
I paid attention, and I...
Forgot to mention I don't want it, Don't want it...
Yeah well I'm a big girl now,
So watch your mouth
I'm a big girl now
Yes I'm a woman, a woman

If I'm in need, will you provide?
Willin' to fight, or run and hide?
Step on my toes, or stand by my side
Follow my lead or get left behind...
Are you righteous?
Are you divine?
Be man enough to call you mine
Stop all the stressin', cut all the lies
Don't try to cross me
You know the line.

The games you play
I'm not impressed
I am the finals
She's just a test
I'm makin love and you're just cheap sex
You better prep,
I'll bring you depth.

Hook (2x)
You told me what you wanted like I,
I paid attention, and I...
Forgot to mention I don't want it, Don't want it...
Yeah well I'm a big girl now,
So watch your mouth
I'm a big girl now
Yes I'm a woman, a woman

(All my girls sing)
I am a Woman
I am a Woman
I am a Woman
I am a Woman

Hook (2x)
You told me what you wanted like I,
I paid attention, and I...
Forgot to mention I don't want it, Don't want it...
Yeah well I'm a big girl now,
So watch your mouth
I'm a big girl now
Yes I'm a woman, a woman

Animal

Written By: Sherell Rowe

Can't describe this feeling oh
Something that I can't control
Adrenaline on rush, the world my clutch
Animalistical
Watching your every move
way to east to pursue
Your my prey I'll getcha
Off your head witcha
Mangled up and confused

The beast comes out at night and if you can't perceive it
You better believe it
It's gonna getcha
The call of the wild and my hungers proceedin'
its time for feedin'

Return To Top
It's a taste that I can't ignore
On the prowl and ready to explore
Diggin' my claws
Clenchin' my jaws
The world about to hear me roar

You might not like what I have to say
But I'm the queen of the jungle and I hunt my prey
Cuz I'm an animal
I'm an animal
I'm an animal
Cuz I'm an animal
Nowhere to run and you can't hide
Where you like it or not you're gonna be mine
Cuz I'm an animal
I'm an animal
I'm an animal
Cuz I'm an animal

Taking no prisoners
My habitat has been disturbed
My hairs at attention
Another dimension
Instincts are out for blood
My senses in a for that's rare
I can smell you're fear in the air
Got you scared to take a step
You know what's coming next
A force that you can't compare, yeah

The beast comes out at night and if you can't perceive it
You better believe it
It's gonna getcha
The call of the wild and my hungers proceedin'
its time for feedin'

Aimin' straight for your jugular
Once I sink in it's gonna hurt
No need to scream
You belong to me
Got nowhere else to turn

You might not like what I have to say
But I'm the queen of the jungle and I hunt my prey
Cuz I'm an animal
I'm an animal
I'm an animal
Cuz I'm an animal
Nowhere to run and you can't hide Return To Top
Where you like it or not you're gonna be mine
Cuz I'm an animal
I'm an animal
I'm an animal
Cuz I'm an animal
