Keke Wyatt – Who Knew

Artist: KeKe Wyatt
Title: who Knew
Label: Shanchie Entertainment
Genre: Soul/R&B/Pop

When music is truly in your soul and you are in touch with your gift, nothing can stop you from sharing it with the world. You don’t feel complete unless you express yourself through your voice and your music. In spite of all the turbulence in her professional and personal life since 2001, KeKe Wyatt proves that she is truly an R&B songstress. For most people who don’t have the fight in them, a nine year gap between albums would mean death to their musical hopes and dreams. This is not the case with Wyatt. on her new label, Shanchie Entertainment, she proves that she is still musically relevant and that she is here to stay. Who Knew is an introspective album of life, love, and, personal growth. This ten track album is well balanced and well planned. the production is slick yet not overdone. Working with producers such as Harvey Mason and the Underdogs, Who Knew gives you concentrated KeKe Wyatt flava. There is nothing watered down or random about this album.

The smooth and sexy title groove, ‘Who Knew’, is the first track and sets the tone of the album. the beat is addictive and the many layers of the production don’t overpower the vocals. For some old school, “quiet storm” type vibing, Wyatt delivers ‘Without You’. It makes you want to hold that special person in your life close for a passionate slow dance. if you don’t have one, it makes you wish you did because you won’t be able to stop yourself from swaying in your seat. Wyatt made a name for herself a few years back with her soulful cover of Patti LaBelle’s ‘If only You Knew’. She challenges herself again covering Rachelle Ferrell’s ‘Peace on Earth’. This track truly showcases her vocals with just an acoustic guitar as the background. She leaves you with no doubt that she truly is a vocalist. a track showing her versatility worth highlighting is ‘Getting It’. Wyatt stomps through this track with attitude and some grimy female swagger. You will definitely have more than one favorite when listening to Who Knew. She’s definitely back. Watch out.
