“Well, my dad and I are like oil and water and we really don’t mix, but in the studio and when it comes to music, we can find a common ground,” she confessed. “This was something that he came to me to do and I just thought it was a really great idea to recreate music from a time where singing was from the soul, from the heart,” Syleena shared with NBC News.Syleena Johnson
