Eve has returned after years of being off the music scene. Her 4th solo studio album entitled "Lip Lock" drops May 14th and has special guest appearances by Missy, Pusha T, Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, Chrisette Michelle, Dawn Richard and more.
The album starts out with the track "Eve." A hard beat and vintage Eve, hard lyrics and aggressive flow. Defenitely a decent opening track, and what we are used to from Eve.
The album then goes into a different breed of Eve. More pop, and a little different from the pitbull in a dress. As the album goes on, the old Eve is missed. Even though we still see remnants of her old style, possibly she is in a different frame of mind and wants to transcend and expand in her music, which differentiates from her comfort zone that we all fell in love with. This is definitely not Eve's best album by a longshot. She has lost the gritty, yet sexy style this time around.
There are a couple tracks that take us back such as "Wanna Be," and "She Bad." But not enough. This album could've been much better. Not totally disappointing, but not impressed at all.
Tracks to Look Out For:
