Syleena Johnson and our favorite Southern Hummingbird, Tweet, recently teamed up at the CRC Recording Studios to record this live, acoustic version of Angry Girl, the second single from Johnson’s fifth studio album, Chapter V: Underrated.

If you enjoy the clip below, you’ll be pleased to know that we’ll get to see more of Johnson and Tweet together on-screen in the near future. As The Queen’s Castle reported back in May, Syleena and Tweet will join Angie Stone, Faith Evans, Monifah, Lelee of SWV and Nicci Gilbert on the new reality show, Diary of a Diva!

Gilbert has been flexing her production muscles with her company Think Factory Productions, the Diary of a Diva creator, tells Billboard’s The Juice ”It’s like an ‘R&B Housewives’ meets ‘Unsung.’” Last year around this time, The Queen’s Castle attended the International Black Film Festival of Nashville’s screening of her film, Soul Kittens Cabaret, which featured Evans and Monifah who are also part of the Diary of a Diva cast.

If you’re hesitant about seeing our favorite R&B divas in a reality show format, put those feelings aside, Syleena tells SoulTrain.com ”The good news is that you’re dealing with a group of women who have careers and lives and focus, where we don’t really have time to sit around and argue. So if there’s drama, which I’m sure there will be, there’s definitely going to be resolutions, you’re going to be able to see resolutions as well.”

Where we’ll get to see Diary of a Diva is still being determined, but the show is slated for release January 2012.

Will you be watching Diary of a Diva? Which one of your favorite R&B divas should be added to the cast?!
