Oakland-born R&B songstress Keyshia Cole has been crafting top-shelf R&B that straddles the stylistic divide between the stridently modern, club-oriented R&B of contemporaries like Ne-Yo and the more backward-looking, classicist soul of Mary J. Blige. A DIFFERENT ME unquestionably favors the latter style. Even on tracks like "Oh-Oh, Yeah-Yea," which features dance-floor ready production from the Outsyderz and a guest appearance from Nas, Cole adopts a self-consciously dramatic, melismatic style of delivery that evokes the vocal virtuosity of divas like Blige and Whitney Houston. This is not to say that A DIFFERENT ME is a wholly conservative affair however. Though much of the album features a more lyrically introspective and musically ambitious side of Cole's artistic personality, tracks like the propulsive, Polow Da Don-produced "Make Me Over" ought to satisfy fans looking for more energetic material.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Make Me Over' is a shimmying, string-pierce vamp...and 'No Other' pumps Spanish guitar into a Mary J.-style monogamy ode."
Spin (p.78) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Accentuating joy over pain to reflect her ascent from troubled beginnings, this is the rare upbeat R&B disc that still feels real."
Entertainment Weekly (p.63) - "On A DIFFERENT ME, this Oakland-born belter turns her focus from heartbreak to happiness."
Billboard (p.39) - "[O]n the noteworthy ballads 'You Complete Me' and 'Brand New,' Cole exhibits a growing confidence and command of her vocal talent."
XXL (Magazine) (p.110) - "Opposites attract on the acoustic gem 'This Is Us'....Promising an exclusive love, Keyshia lyrically seduces her man on 'Brand New'..."
