Marsha Ambrosius is most-known for being the other half of the duo Floetry. The duo had a few major radio hits, which include “Floetic,” Say Yes” and “Getting Late.” Floetry’s studio albums Floetic and Flo’Ology faired well on the US music charts, and the duo respectively sold 1.5 million records worldwide. Ambrosius and Natalie Stewart parted ways in 2007, and both embarked on their solo careers. Stewart recently announced the duo is planning a Floetry tour this year. “There’s a reunion coming up. Marsha and I are doing a lot of planning, getting things together,” Stewart said during a recent interview (via All Hip Hop). Floetry reunited on stage last year in London, which marked their first performance together since 2006. Marsha and I touched a stage in December for the first time in eight years, and it was like autopilot,” Stewart said.
