With her sultry, soulful voice and ability to blend a singer-songwriter sensibility with a passion for hip-hop, she was one of music's shining lights following early 2000 hits I'm Like A Bird and Turn Off the Light.

Her star hasn't shone quite so bright since, but she never went away and was back to her best in 2006 with Promiscuous (featuring Timbaland).

This is an album for the fans, and has three new songs including Girlfriend in the City where she sounds like Pat Benatar and Stevie Nicks rolled into one.
