Floetry in motion no more
Former-Croydon RnB band Floetry has a new line-up following one member's decision to quit the duo following a row.
Marsha Ambrosius, is continuing with the band which moved to the US in 2000, but will now be joined by US MTV personality and rapper Amanda Diva.
Former member Natalie Stewart, who lived in Thornton Heath, Norbury, and Croydon, will now be working on her own projects in the UK.
The pair, who studied at the Brit School, split after Marsha found Natalie's Myspace page contained the line Life After Floetry.
Writing on her Myspace page Marsha said: "You see, myspace.com tells you what you need to know about a person, or what you want them to know about you... whilst Nat nor myself were communicating, I took the easy road and I went to check out her page coz a fan hit me with the link like wtf!!! this was early this year... so i see on Nat's personal page "Life After Floetry... Natalie Stewart is... Super Heroine..." and I'm like OK, she got her Code Records poppin, she was doin her... grown woman, had to respect the M.O... so I'm back in Philly, she's in the UK, we're not talking, I see "Life After Floetry..." to me, she left..."
According to the American media Marsha and Natalie fell out after a personal row, the details of which are still unknown.
The pair, who have had great success in the United States, have been nominated for a host of gongs, including a prestigious Grammy award.
They made music with pop prince Justin Timberlake, gravel-voiced Macy Gray and composed Butterflies, the second single on Michael Jackson's Invincible album
