I just listened to this to see what's what. Kinda boring but I think the adult slow rnb is her lane to success now. Not really a fan of how she's singing on it, but that seems to be her vocal approach nowadays. That roxie footbaw vocal affectation. Sounds like she's singing with her bottom lip jutted out or something, I dunno.
I'm not a fan of it either. Same tone on Bye Bipolar. The key of the song is low for one which causes her to sing in that tone, but yeah, I dont like how she sounds on it. But she's definitely purposely singing like that, and I dont like it too much. The backgrounds though when she's singing higher, the "wouldnt that be nice" parts, heavenly. Love that.
I agree. I'm worried this low unappealing tone is what she means when she refers to her "comfortable range," like when she talks about rerecording Full Moon lower, etc. Hopefully she evolves out of that choice soon bc it sounds sloppy to my ears. One of the main reasons I couldn't get into b7, aside from the production. But I agree her higher backgrounds are pretty.
