Unlike her stage appearance, which is getting creepier and creepier, her music stays unchanged. Her latest release, Shades of Blue, uses the same damn shticks as any of her previous albums. No matter what song she sings, her syrupy vocals remain unemotionally annoying. No matter what lyrics she writes, her rhymes remain nursery. No matter what beats she rides, her flows remain constant. If I have to pick one track to describe this album, it would be “Hollow.” She actually expresses herself pretty well: “I am so hollow, so hollow / hollow in my heart / hollow in my soul / because I am so hooolloooow….” No doubt about that!
