On “High” you will be lyrically swept into another direction, and if it is your cup of tea you will be satisfied, because everything checks out if so, including the language it calls for if it’s your thing. Don’t get too loaded before she calls and you’ll be alright on this one. The message is clear and mindful, even if explicit. I liked how she worked this out and did it her way. It’s still a good groove. The same goes for “Run Away” which exceeds expectation at this point. This is a really-good track and a recommended single. But it’s not the same type of song as most of them on the EP. It’s probably the most radio-accessible one. She manages to break through on both commercial and harder levels on her first release and that’s not done every day like it used to be. It reminds you that such feats might not be a thing of the past if they keep up. For evidence of it all just check “Perfect (Featuring Danny Matos)” and see how she works with other singers and switches it up with the combo factor. This works undeniably well, for another solid track which shows she and her backing players have what it takes. There really are no clunkers, with even the slowest track “Hello, Goodbye” bringing on something fresh and vibrant. Get some today; it’s been out since May.
