5.0 out of 5 stars A Forgotten Classic, 24 Jun 2006
This review is from: A Nu Day (Audio CD)
The Canadian born songtress broke onto the music scene in 1995 singing "Put A Move On My Heart" a song Quincy Jones penned for his then lastest album a few years later 1998 to be precise Tamia released her Debut that considering the singles performing well on the R&B chart failed to grab peoples attention.2000 rolled around Tamia released "A Nu Day" which showed her maturity and the power she carried in that beautiful voice of hers.

The album starts with an acapella version of "Stranger In My House" breaking into the feisty "Dear John" one of my favourite Tamia songs! a beautifully produced song with an infectious chorus. "Can't Go For That" was the lead single which did quite well on the US charts produced by Missy Elliott this is a tale of a relationship thats just dead in the water it deals with domestic abuse and just generally how men can be horrible to women backed with a dancable beat.Tamia sings lower that usually but she still sounds great. "Go" is an instantly likeable track with horn stabs throughout the song the chorus carries this."Stranger In My House" is the real winner on the album one of the most beautiful R&B songs ive ever had the pleasure of hearing it was a massive hit in america reaching #10 on the commercial charts.She sings about not knowing who her man is anymore hes a completely different person from how he used to be.The video was stunning Tamia wading around in a pool of water.Other highlights include The Erick Sermon produced "Un'H..To U" which is one of a few hip-hop orientated tracks it seems pretty standard R&B music but i just think it has something special reminded me of Monica in the old days."Tell Me Who" which was the 3rd single with no video it was a radio hit and even bigger remixed as a club song.One of her beat vocal performances ive ever heard this mid-tempo beautiful just stands out starting off quite soft then breaking into a hard drum beat."If I Were You" the closing song which is just one of those teary eyed songs she sings with such emotion again another stellar vocal performance.

Top 5

1.Stranger In My House

Although 6 years old its probably still better than whats out now.Tamia is a much slept on artist who deserves the praise and applause check it out.
