I like Kelly… however, her cd didn’t move me. You want an emotional tie with music and her cd—as a whole—doesn’t do that for me. It’s not that her songs aren’t good, they just lack emotion. Kelly has a great voice, I would've loved a ballad. That didn’t happen. I think it’s difficult making an album for both the UK and USA. There’s no unity to the cd. It’s mostly party music sprinkled with a couple of up-tempo love songs. My favorite song on the album is “Motivation.” I would have liked to hear more songs like this.
This album aside, I think Kelly needs to find herself. What I noticed about her cd is that pretty much anybody could have been singing her songs: Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole, Monica. I know the music game is saturated right now with monotony, but I think if Kelly goes big—grandeur—she’ll do well. Individuality is key. The way I see it, she was in Destiny’s Child too. She should come harder; she has it in her.
Current Track: Motivation
