A best-of compilation that contains Cheryl "Pepsii" Riley's defining "Thanks for My Child," which aced the R&B chart in 1988. An '80s theme song if there ever was one, it's hard imagining a '60s or '70s artist hitting with a song about single parenting. Full Force wrote and produced Cheryl's material and at times concocted some good hip-hop with compelling hooks and rhythms to contrast the drama -- ballads that were her forte. While not as dynamic or cagey as some female vocalists, she works certain songs right into your inners and imprints them into your memory bank forever. Picks include the title track, "Every Little Thing About You," "Sisters" (a duet with Lisa, Lisa), "Me, Myself and I," "How Can You Hurt the One You Love," and one she co-wrote with Full Force, "(So Glad) This Love Affair Is Over." The tight but sparse productions makes you wonder how Pepsi would fare with stellar session musicians in a studio loaded with the works, and Quincy Jones or Baby Face in the production booth.

Cheryl is one of those underated vocalists who has more chops than what many of the mainstream artists have to offer. From the opening track, ' Sister Knows What She Wants', to the final, 'So Glad This Love Affair Is Over'. No one who listens to this album will leave feeling disappointed. Cheryl is one artiste who deserves to be highlighted because she has the natural talent.
