Ambriya Neal, a North Carolina A&T (NC A&T) graduate and Atlanta-based real estate agent, is turning heads for her Destiny’s Child-inspired promotional video and song.
Neal uploaded “Buy With Me, Sell With Me,” which takes its inspiration from the song ‘Say My Name’ by Destiny’s Child. Neal’s video copies Destiny’s child video scene for scene. However, Neal’s lyrics talk about trusting her with your real estate options through the New Era Realty Group as opposed to a cheating boyfriend.
“Buy with me, sell with me, looking for a commercial lease, book a consultation free, let’s get you this deed,” Neal sings. “Buy with me, sell with me, this market’s kinda scary, equity, just trust me.”
According to PressiNews, Neal did not focus on real estate while at NC A&T, graduating with degrees in mass communication and journalism and was crowned Miss A&T during her time at the university.
Real estate has seen a significant boom since the coronavirus pandemic began. Home sales skyrocketed in the early days of the pandemic as many wanted to work remotely while having more space. At the same time others used the initial drop in rents in metro areas to relocate.
According to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller National Home Price NSA Index, which tracks price changes of single-family homes, housing prices rose 9.5 percent in November 2020 from the previous November.
Say My Name was released by Destiny’s Child in 1999 and was an instant hit for the Beyonce-led group, winning two Grammy Awards for best performance by a group and best R&B song. The song also led to controversy for the group as band members LeToya Luckett, and LaTavia Roberson who ultimately left the group.
