Biography

In 2002 the successful duo of Missy Elliott and Timbaland presented Tweet, a soulful vocalist with hip-hop savvy and unrestrained sexuality. Like Sparxxx's debut album, Tweet's debut, Southern Hummingbird, featured production by Timbaland and vocals by Elliott, most notably on the lead single, "Oops (Oh My)." The single became an overnight hit, and a remix for the song ... Read more in Amazon's Tweet Store

Product Description

Product Description

Tweet ~ Southern Hummingbird

Amazon.co.uk

Tweet's Southern Hummingbird is the classic showbiz story: an overnight sensation 10 years in the making. The sultry singer/songwriter travelled a long and twisted path to success, one that brought her in contact with Missy Elliott, who years later tracked her old friend down and rescued her from obscurity. The resulting effort is a crystal-clear triumph, much more old-school soul than contemporary R&B.

Aside from the dance-driven "Oops (Oh My)", Southern Hummingbird's sound is far less electronic than the usual Missy and Timbaland co-production. A good mix of party grooves and more intimate acoustic guitar work nicely balances Tweet's graceful vocals. Her style will inevitably draw comparisons to Minnie Riperton, though many would describe her as a female D'Angelo. Either way, fans of intelligent soul music will be glad Tweet stuck it out--Hummingbird is the work of an introspective and talented woman. --Rebecca Levine

To cut a long story short - this is one of the best rnb albums around. If you like albums by alaicia keys, aaliyah and ashanti, then i would strongly reccomend this album to you. Southern Hummingbird is nothing like her debut single Oh My, but dont let this put you off! Heres my track by track review...
1- So Much to say: Sugary sweet vocals to introduce the album. should b longer. 7/10
2- My Place: Beautiful track which gets you in the mood. 9/10
3. Smoking Cigarettes: A bit whiny, but her voice more than makes up 4 it. 7/10
4. Best Friend: Great duet wiv Bilal, one of the best tracks. 9/10
5. Always Will: doesnt get stuck in your head, but sweet.
6. Boogie 2nite - Brilliant. makes u want 2 dance ur socks of. 10/10
7. Ooops - Catchy, naughty, very good! 9/10
8. Make ur move - So a good song. straight 2 the point!
9. Motel- Not the best song. whiny, bad lyrics, too acoustic. 4/10
10. Beautiful - Nice, soothing, just lovely! 8/10
11.Complain - Ok track, optimistic and upbeat. 6/10
12. Heaven - Another upbeat track which makes me smile. 8/10
13. Call me - I love this thing. Modern, edgy, dancable.
14. Drunk - Not bad, a bit floaty, and not the best topic 2 sing about tho. 7/10
15. Southern Hummingbird - Just an outro where she thanks everyone. Too corny 4 me. 4/10
16. Sexual Healing - Fanbloodytastic!!! Great beats, perfect vocals, just great. 10/10
17. Big Spender - I like missy elliot, but this isnt her best work. stick to originals, not covers. 2/10
Although some of the songs arent brill, the good songs more than make up 4 it, and just hearing her voice is a bonus. Buy it if you have taste!!!

What can I say? This has got to be the best debut album within the urban genre since Lauryn Hill's marvellous "The Miseducation Of...". Although "Southern Hummingbird" isn't quite as groundbreaking, it is a little masterpiece in it's own right. Tweet proves that there's more to the r&b genre than dull, overrated drivel produced by the likes of more commercial artists such as rival starlets Alicia Keys and Ashanti. Track-by-track review:
01 "So Much To Say" - Gorgeous intro, her voice sounds incredibly sexy.
02 "My Place" - A laid-back slice of soulful r&b, with Tweet's vocals and lyrics once again combining to provide a sexy atmosphere. 7.5/10
03 "Smoking Cigarettes" - One of the stand-out tracks from the album, a potential classic. Chilled yet cool, Tweet's vocals are irresistable, the production sounds as if it derives from folk influences, and it all works perfectly. 10/10
04 "Best Friend" - Here, Bilal - a star in his own right, provides duet vocals for a sweet tune about friendship. The chemistry between the 2 stars is simply fascinating. 9.5/10
05 "Always Will" - Tweet proves herself to be a lyrical genius with this track, that's sung beautifully. Another stand-out. Who said you had to sing like Aretha Franklin to have soul anyway? 10/10
06 "Boogie 2nite" - THE stand-out track of the album. Destined to be a classic in the future, a catchy hook, Tweet's sultry vocals, and a male vocal that sounds like a 27th century Barry White, I DARE you not to love this. 10/10
07 "Oops (Oh My)" - Understandably controversial debut single, sexy, sassy, and superb.

Southern hummingbird is a really cool album with a variety of different flavas. A really soulful set with clever lyrics and a cool voice. There are songs to party to, chill to and all that good stuff. Its clear that Tweet is influenced by the soul sitas like Jill Scott, Angie Stone etc. and she manages to bridge the gap between modern soul and commercial r'n'b really well. A hot album from a woman who's gonna go far!
