Product Description

BBC Review

I've been on the road and now I'm back again', this is the first line on "Goin' Out", the opening track of Faith Evans' eagerly awaited fourth album. It pretty much sums up the attitude of the whole album, heralding a new beginning for Faith. She's is in a happy place, inside and out, and it shows.

The first single release from the album "Again" gives us an insight into Faith's life in her three year hiatus. This track highlights her growth and pain during this period, 'I wouldn't take away the rain cos I know it made me who I am';the singer has been through some tough timesand hasnow proudly reemerged stronger on the other side.

The First Lady boasts productions by the likes of The Neptunes, Jermaine Dupri, Todd Russaw (Mr Faith Evans) as well as a romantic duet - "Ever Wonder" - with Mario Winans. Faith's musical range is wide and varied, from up-tempo R&B to more traditional soul, there's a depth to her talent that many up and coming artists can only dream about. I would hate to think that you would have to suffer great pain to make great music, but on the evidence here it sure does help.

"I Don't Need It" has a distinctive rare groove flava and rides over the Jones Girls classic "Nights Over Egypt". "Mesmerized" takes us even further back in time, its funky 60s beat and Aretha style vocals scream (very) old Skool Diva! The final track "Hope", featuring Twista, ends the album on an uplifting note. A fitting finale to an emotional journey.

TheFirstLady reflects a mature and wise Faith; it comes straight from the heart and is personal, sexy and deeply soulful - this is an album for the grown ups. In her own words, 'Nobody can do what Faith Evans does like Faith Evans does'. --Denise Boyd

5.0 out of 5 stars The First Lady Of Hip-Hop Soul 21 May 2005
By Phill
Format:Audio CD
Faith Evans was made a household name in 1997 when she collaborated with P.Diddy & 112 on the tribute to her husband B.I.G. Little did people know her career started in 1995 with her debut "Faith" which had the smash it single "Soon As I Get Home". 10 years later Faith releases her 4th studio album after a 4 year hiatus she returns back on form with the soon-to-be classic album which is already certified Gold in the U.S thats 500,000 copies sold in jus over a month "The First Lady" is back!
1.Goin' Out (Featuring Pharrell & Pusha T) - One of the highlights on the album this Neptunes produced track is one of the best up-tempo tracks shes ever done its a song about just going out and having fun it has a great beat accompanied by a rap by Pusha T of The Clipse possible single material 10/10
2.Again - The lead single which was a smash hit all over the world even reached #12 on the UK charts which i think is her highest solo position ever its got a nice sulty 70's vibe to it,its a really good way of gettin back at the media for sayin she had a drug problem beautiful vocals on this one 10/10
3.I Don't Need It - Middle Eastern-type beat at the start then it flips it into a soulful groove the lyrics are good and her vocals shine on this one too.It's dancable and is just a feel good song 10/10
4.Stop N Go - Faith dabbles in a bit of Neo-Soul with this track which stands as one of my favourite songs she uses basketball as a metaphore for her relationship with her man its a good song to just sit down and groove to the chorus is really nice its just a really nice soulful song 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful summer album 10 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard her do 2 two songs from the album on Jooles Holland and thought I must buy this album tomorrow. I didn't have time to get it the next day but ended up at a party where this album was like the theme song of the evening. Everybody was so grooving and upbeat with Faith E! I've finally got it myself and I'm still excited. If you like R & B with gospel roots, this is a gorgeous album for the summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB!!!!!!!!! 5 April 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Every track on here is a winner!!! Faith truly shines and delivers on every level...Now sepereated from the helms of P Diddy, she has made this extradordinary album with numerous guest appearences from Pharrell and Mario Winans. With sweet melodies and powerful vocals, she is rightfully the queen of R&B! Forget your Ciaras and Ashantis...Go buy this now...Undoubetedly one of the best R&B comebacks and one of the best R&B albums this year....
Favourites : Goin Out, Again, I Dont Need It, Mesmerized, Catching Feeligs, Lucky Day, Hope ...
Although every song on here is great!! I really cannot recommend this enough...check it out!
