Album of The Week

Album of the Week (25th Aug)- Queen Latifah "Black Reign"

Album of the Week (25th Aug)- Queen Latifah "Black Reign"

This is the maiden edition of our Album of the Week series. We plan to consider old school albums with at least 3 classic tracks in each album. These songs will meet at least 2 of the following thematic criteria: love, battle, socially conscious, tribute and remix/party.

Our 1st Album of the week is Queen Latifah’s Black Reign(1992) with us highlighting 4 classic songs: U.N.I.T.Y., I can’t Understand , Just Another Day, Weekend Love. Less popular but tight tracks include “Mood Is Right”, “Listen 2 Me”, “Superstar”. The whole album deserves a second chance.
Admittedly, there is a bias in picking the album for our debut: it’s to overcompensate for underestimating Latifah’s catalogue of work and sleeping on her musical talent. Not only does she rap but she also sings! Latifah sings her own hooks and choruses often adding reggae infused melodies and harmonies. She’s also a serious battle rapper. Some would have sweet and fond memories of some of her songs: Fly Girl, U.N.I.T.Y. and her line inn “I want to be Down” Remix with other female rappers. Her diss song “Name Calling”. I go into trance when I hear “instinct leads me to another flow”.
We hope you enjoy this Album as much as we do. The album “Beats the Norm”.
