Anybody Want To Buy A Heart Album Review

K. Michelle recently released her second album entitled “Anybody Want To Buy A Heart.” On the album she shares a lot and bares it all…physically. In her interview with Power 105.1 with the Breakfast Club, she says that some people were mad about her album cover because she was naked, but in her defense, she says she was removing all negativity from her, including what people think of her, baring it all and showing beauty and art.

She’s said in a few interviews that her album is about her previous break up with British actor Idris Elba. You may know him from Tyler Perry’s film “Daddy’s Little Girls”, “Taken”, and most recently “No Good Deed.” When asked about the break up with Elba, she said

He had the baby and it was just, kind of like I’m not going to be in the  middle of this, so I walked away from it——-It’s another woman involved. What kind of woman am I to say ‘leave your family–to come be with me’.  I think as a woman I did the right thing. — K. Michelle, interview with The Breakfast Club Power 105.1

To set the record straight, she also added that he was not married when they got together.

On her album, K. Michelle expresses herself in different styles of singing and sounds that go with her personality. Her first song “Judge Me” has a recognizable up beat to it; then she moves along to song number 2 with her hit single “Love Em All.” She had sampled the group Total’s hit song “Kissing You” in her song titled “Hard to Do.” She goes from hitting long notes, to yodeling, to singing with soul on this album. I think this album is a must hear. It took me two times to hear it, to really get the vibe from it and actually understand where she was coming from. Overall rating of this album:         four gold stars

The Pinkprint Album Review


The “Anaconda” single star Nicki Minaj dropped her third studio album “The Pinkprint” on December 12. She starts off the album with the song “All Things Go” that has  heavy bass, nice melody kick to it. She opens up about past relationships with an ex boyfriend, her mother and the death of a little cousin. I think the title means that all things come and go, like her opening up about her abortion when she was younger. This song was the best choice of hers to start the album. She then slows it down in the titled song “I lied” in which she says she lied to her guy so he wouldn’t break her heart. So she had a wall up around her heart so she wouldn’t get hurt. We’ve all been there, I know I have. Ms. Nicki switches it on up on “The Crying Game” and adds Jessie Ware, London singer whose big hit was “Wildest Moments”. She also features Ariana Grande, Beyonce, Drake, Wayne, Chris Brown, Meek Mills, Skylar Grey, and LunchMoney Lewis on her album; as well as Jermih in my favorite song titled “Favorite”.

Thinking back to when Nicki first came out, she has changed musically and physical as far as her appearance goes. She went from bright crazy color hair to nice, toned down Nicki. I’ve always liked her songs but wasn’t a big fan of her image. She definitely made a signature look with her pink Chinese bang hair-doo , her long blonde hair, and of course the big booty; but her look could never be imitated or replicated. It’s like she’s blossomed into a new lady and I like it.

As far as her album goes, I give it      four gold stars
