Yo mama named you Natalie, I'm gonna call you Natalie. So you shaved your head, you are still Natalie Stewart and I still love your sound.

If you you don't know who Natalie Stewart it's no shame, all you got to do is say yes. Natalie Stewart was one half of the group Floetry, now back to school. Floetry was an English R&B duo comprising Marsha Ambrosius ("the Songstress") and Natalie Stewart ("the Floacist"). The group recorded two studio albums and one live album. Formed in 1997, Ambrosius and Stewart began writing songs and playing shows in and around London.

In 2000, the duo traveled to the United States to perform on the poetry circuit. After frequenting spoken word/poetry spots in Atlanta, GA such as Yin Yang Poets' Cafe (to rave reviews), they moved on to Philadelphia. There they met Darren 'Limitless' Henson and Keith 'Keshon' Pelzer of DJ Jazzy Jeff's Touch Of Jazz studio and began recording.

In 2002, the duo released their first album entitled, Floetic. The album spawned the singles Floetic, the top ten song Say Yes and Getting Late. Following their success, Floetry released their live album Floacism, featuring the single Wanna B Where U R (Thisizzaluvsong).

In 2005, Floetry released their second studio album Flo'Ology. From the release came two more successful singles SupaStar and Lay Down. Later in 2007, Natalie Stewart ("the Floacist") left the duo and was later replaced by femcee and MTV2 personality Amanda Diva. Are you all caught up now?
