Jun 19, 2013Talk a Good Game is her realness in full flower, an album that balances world-weariness about relationships with infectious dollops of sexual agency, tackling the vagaries of love almost exclusively and offering anthems for experiences that every woman has had (or will have) at some point.

Jun 22, 2013Talk a Good Game is very solid R&B album. Her vocals are on spot throughout the record probably further improved since Here I Am. That saidTalk a Good Game is very solid R&B album. Her vocals are on spot throughout the record probably further improved since Here I Am.

Aug 30, 2015Another amazing album. Definitely one of the best albums of that year if not the best Contemporary R&B albums of all time. I loved at least 4Another amazing album. Definitely one of the best albums of that year if not the best Contemporary R&B albums of all time. I loved at least 4 5th of the album, not to many albums I have come across where I can actually listen from start to finish. This album is not one of those albums that you have to buy only for a couple good songs, as almost every song was beyond good.… Full Review »
