Album Review: Exposed | Kristinia DeBarge


Release Date: July 28, 2009

I have to say that in reviewing this album I may be slightly biased. But I can’t help it. Kristinia DeBarge is like a mini-Rihanna. Her music just screams R&B/Pop confetti waiting to be thrown at the world.

The 19 year old teenager’s debut is far from spectacular because it’s just layered with fillers on almost every other track. But there are extremely bright moments for the up and coming star. One example, is my favourite, the emotional and dreamy, “Future Love” which begins with a melodic piano pattern. The song is filled with emotion and is just screaming hit. Other standouts are the popular “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” (Steam) sample, “Goodbye” and the Rihanna-esque track, “Sabotage”. The latter, personally contains lyrical genius. The idea of her alter ego ‘sabotaging’ her is a phenomenal concept. So kudos to the writers of that song.

The remainder of Kris’ album is generic pop. However, some songs can’t be discarded. It’s fluffy, yes. But who doesn’t enjoy that sometimes? Give or take 10 plays, you’re bound to fall in love with “Powerless”. One or two listens should have you hooked on "'Doesn’t Everybody Want To Fall In Love” and depending on your mood, you should be vibing to the clichéd pop jam, “Cried Me A River”.

Okay, so where are the aforementioned fillers? “Speak Up” has the potential to be better and "Dies In Your Eyes” as well as “Somebody” and maybe even “Its Gotta Be Love” all lack that major twist – originality. They’re all so ‘I’ve-Heard-This-Before’. So maybe being so much like Rihanna isn’t so much of a good thing. Because, no one can do it like her.

So while Kristinia DeBarge works on exposing the real her for album number two.. I’ll be listening to some “Good Girl Gone Bad”.
