Yummy Bingham (born January 7, 1986) is an American singer and songwriter.

Biography[edit]

Bingham was born on January 7, 1986 to R&B producer Dinky Bingham and Patricia Wyce. She was put into her grandparents care in South Jamaica, Queens, New York.[1] She is the god-daughter of Chaka Khan[2] and Aaron Hall.[3]

Career[edit]

In 2000, at age 14, Bingham was recruited by producer KayGee to form the group Tha' Rayne, signed to Arista.[4] The group recorded an album,[5] appeared on a bunch of labelmates tracks[6] including Jaheim's Fabulous that hit #1 on the US Billboard Adult R&B chart for three weeks from February 1, 2003 to February 22, 2003.[7] The group released the single "Didn't You Know",[8] peaking at #76 in September 2003 on the US Billboard R&B chart.[9] Their debut album, "Reign Supreme"[4] never came out and the group disbanded in 2005.[4]

While being a member of Tha' Rayne, Bingham was also getting a name for herself as the appointed vocalist of veteran hip-hop group De La Soul,[10] being featured on various of their songs and singles, and accompanying them on tour between 2000 and 2004.[11][12][13][14] From 2003, Bingham started to collaborate to various artists, getting writing and/or vocals credits on songs from Talib Kweli,[3] Patti Labelle,[15] Lupe Fiasco,[16] Black Sheep,[17] P. Diddy,[18] Christina Aguilera[19] Mary J. Blige,[19] Sunshine Anderson,[20] Busta Rhymes,[21] Nas,[22] Keyshia Cole,[22] Amerie,[19] Mýa[23] or Monica.[24]

At age 18, Bingham became the youngest female CEO of a major-affiliated label [25] and the youngest female record executive.[4] She formed the label "Muzic Park" with Grammy award winning beatmaker Rockwilder[3] and was the label's first artist through a record deal with Motown in the United States[26] and Island Records in the United Kingdom,.[27] She released the singles "Come Get It",[4] "Is It Good To You" and "One More Chance"[28] and released her debut album "The First Seed" in the UK in October 2006.[27]

She continued writing and recording for other artists and gave birth to her daughter Aviela in September 2007.[4] She took some time out of the record industry to do Gospel/Inspirational music[29] but eventually returned to secular R&B in 2010 with a new song called "Circles" that was featured in the movie "King of Paper Chasin".[30] She also announced acting projects.[4]

In 2013, she teamed up with alternative R&B producer and partner in life[31] Nyce Hitz to record new material. From October 29 to December 31, 2013, Bingham offered a music series untitled "Taste Tuesdays" consisting of the release through the online music magazine Singersroom,[32] of 10 unreleased songs,[33] most of them being exclusive songs not appearing on her 10-tracks mixtape "No Artificial Flavorz" that she released subsequently, on January 7, 2014,[34] promoted by singles "Cuffin" and "Can We Stay" (featuring Kardinal Offishal).[31] The same year Bingham was featured on Cam'ron's single "So Bad" with Nicki Minaj.

In April 2015, Bingham released the single "Hard to Love".[35][36]
