Album Review: Candice Glover – ‘Music Speaks’

Album Review: Lyfe Jennings’ ‘Lucid’ Gives It To You Straight, With No Chaser

In every walk of life, there’s that one person who gives it to you straight with no chaser. In the world of R&B, Lyfe Jennings is just that. While most R&B heartthrobs are watering down their lyrics to basic, straightforwardness about sex and the woman’s anatomy, Lyfe Jennings refreshingly offers soul music that isn’t just […]

Ciara has certainly had some twists and turns in her career. After label spats and underwhelming record sales, it seemed as if the Atlanta singer had lost her way – or at least the music industry had lost her.

Album Review: Kelly Rowland Finds Musical Voice on ‘Talk A Good Game’

Three albums and ten years have led up to Kelly Rowland’s fourth studio album Talk A Good Game. Despite her massive popularity overseas and moderate success in the US, the Destiny’s Child founding member has been met with ceaseless comparisons to her more iconic band member Beyonce, so much so that a musical shadow – whether […]

Album Review: Chrisette Michele Is At Her Best on ‘Better’

Ever since Chrisette Michele’s silky jazz voice was introduced to the music world back in 2006 on Jay-Z’s “Lost One,” her sound – a melding of jazz and R&B – has become a musical trademark. Among a roster of sassy R&B divas belting man-bashing anthems and trivial sex music, Michele takes a subtle, more narrating […]
