EASY LISTENING: Love Songs, URBAN/R&B: Soul
Working on 2 projects at once, Shadiya has once again captured her audience with a variety of styles. This particular album speaks love once again, not only for man, but for the world, momma, and ancestors. First, she tests you, admits she''s a fool for a good man, then yi, yi, yi, she''s been bit by love. It gets stronger as the candlelight sets the scene for the bedroom. Well, she says, "when love calls- I come runnin''." All in all, the audience gets drawn into sharing her world. She lets you know that she never knew love could be so good and then tears out a heart wrenching song dedicated to all mothers out there. Next, we enter war, and destruction, school shootings,homelessness and corporate (Enron), and political inappropriateness with Life & Times. Ending this set with an ode to the ancestors is a nice touch. This work takes us through the many facets of life.
