Go Outside In The Rain” is lifted from Tamika’s recently released debut EP, “Family Affair”. The single and EP are both available on all streaming and download platforms now.
Go Outside In The Rain” was written by Darryl Black and produced by Wirlie Morris. “I recorded this song as a tribute to Milira and the original version from the 1990’s. I have always loved this song! I have been singing it since I was a teenager and won several talent shows with this song,” mentions Tamika. “We, (XSCAPE) used to sing it as kids and since I’m the last member to release a solo project, I put it on my EP at the suggested request of my husband, since none of the other ladies put it on their solo projects,” she adds.
The emotional ballad is making its way to listeners hearts as the song is the #30 R&B song in the country with a bullet this week according to mediabase. The Juice BigFellow directed music video captures the feeling of one going through a difficult time and shows the support of friends and family during this process. Notable celebrity friends in the video are Trina Braxton and Patrice Lovely.

Parker of 112, producer RL of NEXT and B-Flat with “All of Me.” Tamika’s husbandDarnell Winston is featured on “Almost Over”, an inspirational anthem of hope and encouragement for anyone going through a storm in their life.
Family Affair came about after Tamika went in for a seemingly routine outpatient surgical procedure in January 2019. Two days later, with crippling pain and hours from death, Tamika was rushed to the Emergency Room. Tragically learning of unintentional lacerations of two vital organs and severe internal bleeding, she required 4 additional surgeries and over 8 months of recovery. During this recovery, Tamika’s husband located several songs she had written previously, including “Almost Over,” and played it to encourage his wife of 15 years. Following her final surgery, Tamika and husband/partner Darnell Winston began cultivating her first solo EP Family Affair.
