    This album is quite lengthy, but it is a solid effort overall.

    23 tracks? Gurl we all know what you are doing
    Its pathetic.

    The album will still flop.

    Killa, concrete or how you want it should be the first singles.was expecting a few more upbeat songs but overall a good attempt 👏

    The album mostly keeps the same tempo throughout. It’s cohesive in the sense that all the songs sound alike. But I wouldn’t go as far to say that she has her own sound because it’s heavily influenced by the 90s (hear the samples) which isn’t a bad thing, it’s quite nostalgic actually. Her vibrato is quite agile and her tone is at its richest in her lower register. As she ascends, the rasp holds her back. While KTSE is a more dynamic album, even in its shortness, this album is where she chills in her comfort zone.

    Side note: I remember Teyana saying that KTSE wasn’t what it was suppose to be, due to lack of sample clearing etc… I’m wondering if these songs on the new album were originally suppose to be on KTSE, which is why she calls it “the album” as in the one she actually wanted us to hear.

    ‘Still’ and ‘try again’ are 🔥

      Had a chance to listen to about 9 songs on my run this morning, and I felt the exact same way about the album as you felt. I will say that it’s nice that she’s staying R&B through and through. R&B in 2020 is still alive and kicking.

      The fact that she was able to get the reclusive Lauryn Hill on this album is amazing enough, let alone all the other features.

      The length of the album might be a bit jarring for some people, but, to put it into context, her last project had like 7 songs on it, and we all complained about how short it was. Now she’s given us what we wanted, and then some. I don’t think she put all these songs on there for the purpose of streaming and getting more plays. This album reminds me of albums in the 90’s in that the runtime is long, and people were ok with that, since their fave artist hadn’t put out music for 2-3 years. Back then, there was no social media, so an album would literally have to last 2 years.

      The samples are crazy so far. I think my fave one is the ‘808’ by Blaque sample on ‘Boomin’.

      “We Got Love” was supposed to be at K.T.S.E so I imagined you’re right assuming that some of the songs here were from the album she actually wanted us to hear.
