The talented Keisha White releases her new album ‘Seventeen’ on Warner Music. At only 18 she has already had success with ‘Don’t Care Who Knows’ feat. Cassidy on this album, as well as being nominated for urban music awards. What’s clear judging by the success of Joss Stone is that Keisha White has every possibility of becoming a major star on the back of this album.
‘Seventeen’ is a soul, r’n’b album. The diversity of the tracks makes it quite difficult to place. What I mean by this is that Keisha shows
flexibility in that she can sing in a pop like way similar to Gabrielle in ‘The Weakness In Me’ or a bit more sassy like Macy Gray in ‘Brother’. What’s obvious is that White has a good voice that could be suited to many different styles of music. She’s still young and should find her own individual stamp eventually but she does have a surprising maturity in her voice and performs with strong sensitivity and soul. The music is well polished, well produced and strictly to an urban theme. There are pop songs for youngsters and older peers wanting to hear positive uplifting tunes. There’s the more upbeat tracks for the dance floor and the soulful, seductive songs for the lovers.
Overall it’s a good album that makes pleasant listening. You can be sure there’s a long career for this cherub if she keeps focused and maintains that positive energy. It should be interesting to see where she goes. ‘Seventeen’ definitely has mass appeal so should propel Keisha to star status. Don’t expect anything that edgy, dirty or too sassy and why should you, she’s only 18.
