First Impressions: Faith Evans Redeems Herself With 'Everyday Struggle'

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Aside from the photoshop of horrors that is the album cover (it's truly missing some Blingee effects), latest single release "Everyday Struggle" from Something About Faith is not a muddled mess. In fact it is exactly what I wanted from a Faith Evans comeback song. After being lulled to sleep with first single "Gone Already", Faith, along with guest Raekwon and a familiar Notorious B.I.G. sample of a Dave Grusin track, wakes me and shakes me with the locked in groove of R&B from yesteryear. Yes, this is pretty much what Faith Evans is bringing on home to me with some of her latest music drops. There is just a sense that she hasn't lost her footing and is continuing to be one R&B artist who hasn't strayed from the elements of why we dug them in the first place (Earth to Mary J. Blige). This is the type of R&B that should be still kicking around on the airwaves...but that is just wishful thinking. Enjoy the newest Faith offering after the cut, and circle October 5th on the calendar (if you already haven't) in anticipation for the release of Something About Faith. For me, the anticipation is heightening now.
