Robbie Montgomery, affectionately known as Ms. Robbie, has had an extraordinary life. She is noted for being one of the original Ikettes in the Ike & Tina Turner Revue in the 1960s. After her tenure as an Ikette, she was a member of the Mirettes, and then became a “Night Tripper” for Dr. John.

In the 1970s, Montgomery was a backing vocalist for acts such as Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand, the Rolling Stones, and Joe Cocker. She later created the Sweetie Pie’s franchise, and starred in the award-winning reality series “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” on the Oprah Winfrey Network. An icon of both soul food and soul music, Robbie has returned to her roots, performing and recording, with her latest release “Ain’t My Stuff Good Enough.”

Ain’t My Stuff Good Enough” was written by Shirley Matthews and Robbie Montgomery and produced by Maurice Wilson. “The song is about giving your all to someone and feeling like it’s never good enough,” mentions Ms. Robbie. “I am just excited to return to the music space and ready to do what has to be done. As I always say, music has been my first love, and chicken is my second,” she adds with a chuckle.

The single is available on all streaming platforms now via the MRM label imprint.

Ms. Robbie says, “I tell everyone that music is my first love and the kitchen is my second!”
