Kelly Price – “Tired”
Kelly Price has been tweeting about her new song “Tired” and wanting for people to call in and request it at radio for days now so I got on my Internet grind and had to find this new song (because who listens to radio? LOL). “Tired” is supposedly from her upcoming solo album Kelly, and is the first single from the album (which I’m not sure WHEN it is going to be released).
“Tired” starts off good, with Kelly sounding great and the song showing promise. However, for me, it quickly falls apart and becomes a big oversung melodramatic song, full of crowded production with a lack of emphasis on vocals (which sound a bit rough at times as well surprisingly). What starts off simply with strings and vocals ends with belted notes, guitars, ad-libs, strings, synths, kicks, hi-hats, bass and more. It just doesn’t end that well.
Kelly can’t seem to recapture the effortless soul and emotion that her first album contained. I’m not sure if this is the song that will be the song that reignites my love for Kelly Price vocally. I am still looking forward to The Queen Project though — hopefully they deliver with that.
