Style: RnB/Swing, Ballad
5.0 out of 5 stars Sheena in da house!,
This album has a very early 90s R&B/’Hip-pop’ feel to it. Think Salt N Pepa and Bobby Brown. The material is, for the most part, not very original, however it does’t stop this being a great album. Its one you’ll have on repeat for sure. Highlights include the title track, and lead single, ‘What Comes Naturally’, ‘If You Wanna Keep Me’ and ‘Forever Friends’. Sheena even writes a track herself, a great little closing gem called ‘To Anyone’. The album is mainly of interest to fans of Sheena, New Jack Swing and cheesy pop. Recommended.
