*The blonde bombshell is back and this time we are not talking about Beyonce.

Antonique Smith best known for her spot on performance of Faith Evans in the “Notorious” biopic held her video release party at the ultra exclusive Emerson in Hollywood, CA for her hot new track “Hold Up Wait A Minute (Woo Woo).”

Antonique knows that she will get comparisons to not only other blondes in the industry but other strong vocal performers like Jennifer Hudson. Antonique doesn’t mind comparisons especially if her vocals make you think of some of her idols like Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion & the late Whitney Houston who Antonique says is her reason for singing as they both share the same hometown of East Orange, NJ.

Antonique tells EURweb associate Herica Thompson:  “My music is about love, life and relationships.”

She wrote “Hold Up Wait A Minute (Woo Woo)” after a break up.

“I found out my boyfriend was using my money to go see another girl. When my manager, Darryl Farmer, who produced the track and I decided it was time to shoot the video, I never dreamed that Larenz Tate would be directing it. Larenz is not only an incredible actor but he’s also incredible director who had a clear vision for the song and the way I see myself.”

Her EP Love is Everything will be released early 2015. Antonique gave EURweb another exclusive saying she will be releasing a Christmas single “O Holy Night” in time for the holidays.

In the meantime enjoy her video for “Hold Up Wait A Minute (Woo Woo)” directed by Larenz Tate with co-stars actor/photographer Lance Gross and Vine sensation King Bach:
