A new song from Keyshia Cole surfaced today. ‘Last Hangover’ features Timbaland and will appear on her new album, ‘Calling All Hearts’ (in stores on December 21st). Give track a listen below:
There is definitely a disconnect between the production of this song and Cole’s delivery. While it is a respectable effort, the tone of Cole’s voice and the vocal arrangement simply fail to impress. In fact, the Timbaland’s beats actually outshine her.
It seems that Timbaland was attempting to fuse his signature Hip-Hop/Dance sound with Cole R&B-based approach in the way he did with Aaliyah but the she simply lacks the range to make that work. This isn’t in any way comparable to the genius of ‘We Need A Resolution’.
Props to Hip-Hop N More.
