    I love Tamia! I am so happy that she has decided to continue making music! I will be buying her CD.

    Now, before ppl get started, Tamia is a R&B artists and like the AMAZING Jill Scott, probably will not sell 300k in her 1st week or even 1 million copies of “Beautiful Surprise”. HOWEVER, it doesn’t mean that she is a FLOP artists. She is a R&B artists so don’t even start. R&B is not supported like Pop & Country!

      BUT TAMIA IS ONE OF THE MANY ARTIST THAT IS SOOOO UNDERRATED!! AGAIN SHE IS ONE OF THE ONES WHO CAN OUTSING ADELE ASS! SHE SHOULD GO PLATINUM QUICK AS S***!! ILL BE BUYING THIS ALBUM MS. HILL!!

      • mobwife July 31, 2012

        Agreed but that’s not how the game is played. “The Powers That Be” are not interested in R&B once again becoming a force in the industry. There money is invested in Pop! I hope Mrs. Hill fairs well.

        Anywho,I love the fact that Tam and Grant have been married all these years and we have not heard a mumbling word about their mariage!

        **Yeah 3X for Mr. and Mrs. Hill 🙂

    R&B is not supported? “4” is strictly R&B…And it sold decent first week. R&B is however a dying genre…But people will buy music if it’s good. I.E. Adele.

    • Oww July 31, 2012

      Tamia doesnt have a machine behind her like Beyonce & Adele. She is independent. 300,000 is still good for her becasue she will pocket more and there is less overhead versus a major label. I will be copping this, she is amazing!

    • mobwife July 31, 2012

      Yes, R&B is not supported like POP, COUNTRY, ROCK or HIP HOP! JJs last several projects under performed and I love me some “Ms. Jackson if your nasty”, but its true! Beyonce like Justin Bieber, JayZ, Rihanna, Gaga 1 Direction, and Katy Perry are highly FAVORED & HEAVILY PROMOTED MEDIA ACTS! Their music lives on constant rotation every hour on the hour on almost every Pop station & R&B station when applies. You cannot compare their success to those who do not receive the same industry & media favor.

      LOL, Adele 0_O? Do you really want to go there? Yes, Adele sings “SOUL MUSIC” but is billed as a POP STAR. Her music is highly favored and played regularly on stations that don’t even play Beyonce or Rihanna for that matter. Music has been parsed into so many sections where ceratin artists have been relegated to be played on select stations & not others. Haven’t you figured out the game by now? Adele is a good artists but ’21’ in total is not the best CD in the world. Don’t get me wrong she has some hits, but not every song on that CD is such! However, you wouldn’t know that by the constant praise shoveled at you by the BIASED, CONTROLLLED MEDIA!

      how dare you mention Beyonce…she gets co-signed by the damn First Lady Of the United States…thats not even a good comparision….

      • RICHANDBEAUTIFUL(JUST LIKE RIH)143 MILLION+++ July 31, 2012

        So AND SHE IS STILL OVERRATED AS HELL! I DONT CARE IF THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND CO-SIGNS WITH BEYFLOP HER ALBUM SUCKED AND IT SHOWED IE HER SALES!

  3. Mr.B July 31, 2012

    This is a fantastic collection of work! Can’t wait to buy it. Thank you, Tamia:-))))

  4. Bey Fan July 31, 2012

    I like Tamia… the snippets sounds good(the ones I could hear). Sounds like typical Tamia, and I dont mean that in a bad way.

    Happy to see all the r&b artist dropping music.

  5. Truth July 31, 2012

    Ugh! Whose checkn for het? Sam will u put ppl up I like too? Like fantasia

    • Truth July 31, 2012

      I wouldve said lil kim too but she faked us all out with her return of the queen with a collection plate for the irs tour then didnt drop new music so F*** HER!

  6. Sleazy July 31, 2012

    B**** please adele album wasn’t even that good 1 dimensional still a nice effort Love Tamia Real R&b Legend

  7. truth teller July 31, 2012

    She’s beautiful, but SIX YEARS is WAY too long to wait to release an album. I will forgive her THIS ONCE, but from now on she needs to release 12 new songs at least EVERY 16-18 MONTHS. NO EXCUSES, B****!

  8. Stephanie July 31, 2012

    Love Tamia, she’s 1 of my faves…I see she did a remake of her song “Still”…I like the R&B version better, but I “still” like the remake too…most def will be buying this on Aug. 28th!!! #goodgrownfolkmusic 🙂

  9. Just Google Kelsnetwork and see what happens! July 31, 2012

    music from a real talent…
    Just Google kelsnetwork

  10. Jasmine July 31, 2012

    I like the snippets. Sounds like a good album but “Still” is just a new rendition of the same song she released in 2004. That is my favorite song from her so I hope the rendition is good. I will definitely be buying this album.

  11. Casual July 31, 2012

    I like Tamia, but I’d say this album is okay, rather than a solid smash. Give Me You and Is It Over Yet are standouts, and had a country female artist recorded Still, it would have been a huge hit on the country charts.

    Tamia is a great vocalist, and her style is decidedly a slightly old school r&b. They need to do an emergency retool here and get a great r&b track along the lines of Love on Top on this project. She also needs a good mid-tempo r&b cut with a guest spot from one of the popular rappers to get her some traction at r&b radio. I think Give Me You and Is It Over Yet will work well at adult urban radio.

    I’d also add a great remake of a 60s-80s classic for instant interest at adult urban radio.

  12. steven July 31, 2012

    isn’t “Still” from her 2004 Lp more?

  13. Lola July 31, 2012

    Some of this the track listing is somewhat similar to brandy 1st album…

    Tamia
    1.)Give me You
    2.)Love I’m Yours
    3.)Lose your Mind
    .)
    Brandy
    1.) Give me You
    2.)I’m Yours
    3.) Always on my Mind

    I wonder if Tamia is a brandy fan?

    • The truth August 1, 2012

    • Tamia’s Lover August 1, 2012

      • The truth August 1, 2012

        Dude I dont want old meat. Riri I will think about but that other screamer No No.

        I said s*** not boringlicious

    • The truth August 1, 2012

      • Tamia’s Lover August 1, 2012

        I cant compete with Frank Ocean.
        By the way I loved his American Wedding, but this Album Sucks big time.

  15. B4REAL02 August 1, 2012

    I’LL BE COPING THIS ALBUM….GOOD R&B

  16. LuvWhitney August 1, 2012

    Once again another musical & vocal masterpiece!!!! I have been a Tamia fan since the 1st album & every album she creates is a MASTERPIECE. Tamia has always remained true & authentic to her craft thats why fans like me still stick around after years & years!!!! We dont care about her sales or status, she never fails us with her true art..The best are sometimes overlooked

  17. James August 22, 2012

    Finally, real music. Stripped down and not overly produced. Was getting tired of music in its current state. Love Tamia. Shes beautiful.
