Artist Spotlight: Dondria

By Alston Johnson    In 2008, singer Dondria Fields, also known by  her Youtube fans as ‘Phatfffat’, posted her first video  her YouTube channel. Four years later, she has released three mix tapes, and her debut album Dondria vs. Phatfffat.

Since her debut album was released in 2010 she has made a name for herself in the mainstream industry.  Her album debuted at #5 on the Billboards Hot 200 charts and charted number 9 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Chart.

Early on in her career she had the privilege of opening for Trey Songz and Monica on their Passion, Pain and Pleasure Tour in 2010.

She has released a series of mixtapes entitled Dondria Duets 1,2 and 3. On these mixtapes she takes the top 10 songs on billboard from male artists and gives them a female spin. Her most recent mixtape Dondria Duets 3: The 90’s edition is different from her other mixtapes. She took popular songs from the 90’s era like “Where I Wanna Be” by Donnell Jones and “We’re Not Making Love” by Dru Hill, to name a few.

Dondria recently had an interview with “Tha Produce Section”, a radio show on WWLU that airs on Fridays. She spoke with them about her new mixtape, what inspired it and the new projects she wants to get into during her career.

“This time I wanted to do something different, I decided I wanted to do something from the 90’s and I was born in the 80’s and that’s the music I grew up listening to, I thought it would be something that people would appreciate,” said Dondria

Her newest mixtape has been downloaded thousands of times since its release and can be downloaded at global14.com/Dondria.

The follow-up to her debut album has not received a release date yet, but she has been working hard in the studio to give her fans what they have been waiting for.  Her first official single from the album is titled “Ol’ School Love” and  features her SoSoDef labelmate, Da Brat.
