Wynter Gordon dealt with a tough Queens upbringing by developing her talent for dancing, songwriting, and singing. She wrote her first song prior to becoming a teenager and attended LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. Later, working in music studios led to a major songwriting credit: the fittingly titled â€œGonna Breakthrough,â€� a tune she co-wrote, was not just recorded by Mary J. Blige but positioned as the central track on the singerâ€™s triple-platinum 2005 album, The Breakthrough. This led to a contract with Atlantic, as well as collaborations with Danity Kane, David Guetta, Jennifer Lopez, and, most significantly, Flo Rida, whose â€œSugarâ€� topped out at number five hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Gordonâ€™s debut album was several years in the making, led by â€œDirty Talkâ€� -- a single that reached number two on Billboardâ€™s dance chart by early July 2010. ~ Andy KellmanPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
