Product Description

JAMELIA Thank You (2003 UK 12-track CD album featuring collaborations with Bubba Sparxxx and Asher D and including the singles Superstar and Bout picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

Having taken three years off to have a baby, Jamelia--UK R&B's one-time most likely star--has a lot of catching up to do. Thankfully, Thank You extends way beyond where her self assured debut, Drama, left off. If anything, watching from the sidelines as R&B's taken over pop culture seems to have galvanised her. This is more rebirth than comeback--her determination to make up lost ground has her upping both hers and R&B's game, rolling out staggeringly strident and imaginative backing tracks of pneumatic beats and sci-fi cool for every song, not just the singles.

Crucially though, her second album isn't just a flexing of production muscle. The slick bounce of "Club Hoppin'", "Off Da Endz"'s mystical shimmy and the predatory "Taxi" all come with hypnotic choruses that are hard to shift. Elsewhere, "Dirty Dirty" pitches her still-sweet vocals against a new-found gift for hard-bitten rap, while the title track showcases remarkable songwriting maturity, pairing a tale of domestic violence with beautifully hopeful pop, without resorting to overwrought slush. Such is the strength of the new Jamelia's character that even when obligatory big-name US guest stars Rah Digga and Bubba Sparxxx roll up, she's still the main attraction. More than anyone could have expected or hoped for, without question, Thank You returns Jamelia to her rightful place as UK R&B's most likely star. --Dan Gennoe

Three years since her debut 'Drama', Jamelia returns with her new album 'Thank You', a classy, self-assured and ultra modern affair. Jamelia has truly ascended to her throne once more as the UK's r'n'b princess.
First single from the album, 'BOUT' (Rah Digga) is a catchy cut of r'n'b with Jamelia in true feisty mode. Follow-up 'Superstar' is the most pop of any of the album's songs, and the most accessible, deserving of its chart success in the UK.
'Dirty Dirty' sees Jamelia go into rap territory with the verses, sounding like a veteran of that musical world, and the chorus is one of the catchiest on the album. 'Club Hoppin' is infinitely cool, a true r'n'b club song, with Jamelia and her girls on a night on the town.
'Thank You' is the tale of the domestic violence that Jamelia suffered at the hands of her boyfriend, but is dealt with in a tender way. The first time you listen to this song, it isn't quite clear what it's about, but after the first few times you hear it, the lyrics really hit home, and show Jamelia's maturity not only as a singer but as a songwriter too.
'Bounce' and 'Life' are again super stylish songs that showcase Jamelia's talents, as are all the other songs on the album, from the quirky 'Antidote' and 'Cutie', to the garage biting 'Off Da Endz', which features Asher D from So Solid Crew. The only dud track on the album is 'B.I.T.C.H', but the skip button on your CD player can easily sort that out!
If you like music by the likes of Mya, Mis-teeq and Beyonce, you will no doubt love this. So, with this sophomore album, Jamelia has really set the benchmark for other UK urban acts to follow with thoughtful songwriting which produces catchy songs, sweet vocals, and ultimately a fantastic album.

Jamelia’s back and this girl is hot! On her sophomore release Jamelia turns up the heat with a smouldering collection of up tempo grooves sparing no time for the usual slushy ballads that clutter up the second half of most RnB albums these days. The beats are cutting edge, Missy / Timberland inspired but with a distinctly British twist while the harmonies are catchy enough to gain chart success but never overly pop orientated. Lyrically Jamelia portrays herself as a girl who calls all the shots. She’s either out chasing after men as in ‘Bout’ and ‘Taxi’, thanking a past lover who’s done her wrong for making her stronger in ‘Thank You’ or turning put downs into positives with ‘B.I.T.C.H. (Beautiful, Intelligent, Talented, Cool Honey)’.
Her two single releases ‘Bout’ and ‘Superstar’ are by no means the standout tracks here as there’s plenty more of the same ilk. ‘Cutie’, ‘Club Hoppin’ (featuring Bubba Sparxxx) and ‘Life’ could also be big hits, in fact its difficult to predict her next single release as this album spares no time for fillers.
‘Thank You’ is one of the strongest releases of 2003 managing to out-destiny Destiny’s Child (and certainly trounces their solo albums) proving to be the kind of long player that Mis-Teeq, Lisa Maffia and Monica all wished they could have made this year but failed.

It would be worth buying this album for the title track alone. "Thank You" must be one of the most incredibly catchy tunes ever written, and I found myself setting my Mac's iTunes to loop it over and over again. As a composition, it's refreshingly spare, and part of its power is that it's quite short, and you feel like you want it to keep playing over and over. Haunting, anthemic, powerful, uplifting, none of these quite does justice to one of the most brilliant compositions of modern times. And through it all, Jamelia's voice, a real siren's call, drawing you into her world and making you want to inhabit it, sexy, intelligent and witty.
And the pleasant surprise is that the other tracks on the album aren't the disappointment one's become accustomed to on many other chart-topping artistes' albums. These are all well-crafted, superbly produced and worthy of merit in their own right. Checking the track notes reveals that Jamelia is no slouch, and has played a part in writing most of the tracks. The fact that she also looks a million dollars sure doesn't hurt her image either...
Jamelia is an artist to be taken seriously, and I look forward to watching her career blossom further. As for this album, buy it -- and at the price Amazon are offering it, it's a no-brainer.

Jamelia proves to us that she is true artist with the ability to pull off producing different styles of tracks and music which definielty go down well with music fans. The album thankyou contains the number 1 smash hit 'superstar' which will leave us dancing to this track for ages along with the single 'thankyou' where we can all have a good think and relax to this song. However track 4 entitled 'see it in the boys eyes' is such a good track. With this track, we all get to see the emotional side of Jamelia and also the music video has an army theme to it which again makes it different and unique to all other artists.
I would like to thank Jamelia for compiling such a brilliant, moving and unique album and i would suggest that we should all buy her album now.
