In 2002, singer/songwriter Tweet hit it big with her smash “Oops (Oh My)” from her criminally underrated debut, Southern Hummingbird. While the album’s show-stopping lead single ”Oops” is certainly irresistible, Tweet’s debut stands out for the pure, rich and heartfelt soul that defines the album’s character.
With collaborations from Missy Elliot and Bilal, Southern Hummingbird is unafraid of vulnerability. Consistently, the songs tell bold, honest and at times heartbreaking stories of love and life. The emotional vigor behind the music is conveyed flawlessly through Tweet’s smoky vocals and personal lyrics.
In a nutshell, Tweet provides a perfect representation of artistry, purpose and ability to connect with the listener–a rare goal that is met with a debut album.
Still AMAZING ’til this day…
