Syleena Johnson stars in TV One's reality docu-series "R&B Divas."

Syleena Johnson says she lost her love for music "for a minute because it broke my heart at one point ... but I am glad to say that we are back together and learning to love each other again." The daughter of the nation's first black female police commissioner and legendary soul and blues singer Syl Johnson, she was initially discouraged from getting into the music business by her father, who had many disappointing experiences in the industry. But after extensive vocal and music training at Drake University she took a recording contract with Jive Records, and the dissolution of a relationship with an abusive boyfriend provided raw material for her debut major label album, "Chapter 1: Love, Pain & Forgiveness" in 2002. Her debut release yielded the hit "I Am Your Woman," penned by R. Kelly.

Syleena's follow-up, "Chapter 2: The Voice" was hailed as one of the best R&B albums of the year. Meanwhile, Kanye West tapped Syleena to handle the vocals on the Top Ten worldwide hit "All Falls Down," which also garnered her and West a Grammy nomination. With momentum building, Syleena released "Chapter 3: The Flesh," which featured such guests as R. Kelly, Anthony Hamilton, Jermaine Dupri, Common and Twista — a mark of respect from her peers — as well as the hit "Another Relationship." Subsequently Syleena has released "Chapter 4: Labor Pains" on her own Aneelys Records and "Chapter V: Underrated" in 2011.
