I was watching videos one day(I was home sick y'all) and bet was playing her video. She almost looks like Alicia Keys. Tyson is in her video also. Just wandering if anyone checked her cd yet. I forgot the name of the song.

I have not heard any of her music, but i saw a huge billboard of her the other day hanging in the window of a cd store. It was eyecatching. Made a mental note to try to find her website, to see if any music is on there, but i totally forgot until now.

I saw her in concert last year and liked some of her music. It's very mellow, like Sade's. I believe that a lot of the reviews of her album have made similar comparisons. I liked it somewhat, but after listening to so much neo soul of late, I found it to be too much of the same and kinda boring.

here is her site, when you go to it, her single "say how I feel" is playing. I like the vibe, her voice and style are unique, and does somewhat remind u of Sade.

I got it a few months ago. Very nice!

I really like her cd.. I just laid hands/ears on it tonight.. I like her style, and she&#39;s a talented sista, cuz she wrote all the songs on the cd.. I&#39;d like to see her perform live, at a dark lil jazz club with candles, wine, n all that.

Give her a second try. I don&#39;t think her music is "typical neo-soul" because all her songs are not about another person. (Remember India&#39;s Acoustic Soul?) "How I Feel" is not a good first single becuase it gives off the image that it&#39;s "another cullid girl" looking for love. She has a song about how mainstream media can affect the consciousness "Stealing My Peace of Mind" "the theives are at it again/stealing my piece of mind" another song about honoring children "Sing to a Child" and another song about honoring the spirits of ancestors "Spriit"

For the record she&#39;s African (Ghanian) and British.

Rhian&#39;s CD is really good. I bought the CD during Thanksgiving Break to listen to while on the plane and I have loved it ever since...My favorite song on the album is &#39;Shake it off&#39;... I think people are sleeping on this album because it&#39;s not your typical over-sexed R&B music.
