Complex Simplicityby Teedra Moses
Saucy New Orleans newcomer Teedra Moses peppers this compelling debut with all the right ingredients. You'll hear a pinch of hip-hop soul on the standout tracks "Be Your Girl" and "You'll Never Find (A Better Woman)," featuring Jadakiss, as well as a hint of Latin jazz on "I Think of You (Shirley's Song)" -- a tender dedication to her mother -- and a taste of dirty southern crunk on the bouncy "You Better Tell Her."

This album is sooooooooooooo good. I love the dedication to her mother. She takes you back on that one. This cd is one that you want to listen to all the way through. There is no need to skip tracks. Her promotion team needs to pick up the pace. She didn't get that much radio play, and I only heard hera handful of times on the radio. I also only saw her video once; I wouldn't have caught it if I wasn't up late. I look forward to future works from her. My favorite songs - ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you are tired of all the R&B sounding the same nowdays, this would be the breath of fresh air you need. She is new on the scene but has brought back and old sound. Thank god! It's a good listen. Check It Out!
I am so glad that this album come out I was really getting tired of this movement of R&B without any soul or grooves. But Teedra's CD brought be way back to the late eighties and early to mid nineties when music still had soul an substance.
I must say that I am enjoying this album. Unfortunately, I don't think she is being promoted very well because I havent heard anything on the radio (except for internet radio) or seen a video. Either way, this is is a decent album. I particularly like tracks 1, 2, 4, 7 and 14 the most! Enjoy!
I love this CD, I also wish that she had more songs on the radio and television.. But don't worry Teedra I am promoting you myself. Alot of people asked me who you were and I had to let them know.. I can't wait to hear the new CD. Make sure you hire a whole new promoting staff....IJJ
I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to this ablum...I especially like the duet with R. Saddaiq called 'Take Me'...I think this album should've received more promotion and publicity...
This a great cd!!! When I first got the cd I didn't think it was going to be all that good but I was sadly mistaken....this cd is "a must" to get!!!!
I orginally got this album from a photo shot i did and it was the best thing i ever got for free....that was 2 years ago since then ive bought the album 4 times.i wish she had more exposure because she is no doubt one under reated artist...Everyone support teedra ""Young Lioness Coming Out Soon""
DAMN THEY DONT GIVE THIS GIRL NO PLAY IN NC THIS GIRL IS OFF DA HOOK I HEARD SOME SONGS ON THE LOCAL A&T RADIO STATION AND I DIDNT KNOW WHO SHE WAS UNTIL MONTHS LATER ALL THE SONGS THEY PLAYED IT WAS HER!
I have not listen to the entire cd but I've listen to songs number 1 through 7 so far and I love it dearly. Nice beats. I think Teedra Moses did an excellent job!!!
