Billboard Charting Songstress Gina Thompson Returns!

In this Live Session, I speak with music game changer Gina Thompson who debuted her Billboard charting premiere single, The Things That You Do (Bad Boy Remix), with Missy ‘Misdemeanor‘ Elliott, on Mercury Records / Universal Music Group in the mid-1990s about her recent return to the industry courtesy to Web3 music platform Infanity.

Discovered by superstar producer, Rodney Jerkins, of Darkchild, her then cutting-edge R&B swing style with its infectious Hip Hop bounce, and her pretty smile to boot, left one feeling like the world was theirs. Moving on to Missy’s The Goldmind Inc. / Elektra Entertainment Group, Gina charted again with her playful girlfriend anthem “Ya Di Ya,” also with Missy.

Becoming far removed from her authentic roots singing in South Jersey, Gina would eventually go on a self-imposed hiatus.

Thanks to Web3 opportunities giving more control to artists, Gina Thompson is back, as a guest feature while passing the torch to Baltimore-based premiere band, The Leftovers, on “The Things That You Do (Infanity Remix)“ via the music platform, Infanity.

Gina’s next highly anticipated single, “Starving”, will also be released with Infanity this May. Tune in to our exclusive Live Session below!
