Review: Nicole Wray – Advance 4 Track EP

The Nicole Wray – Advance 4 Track EP was an album sampler that came out on vinyl for the Lovechild album that was supposed to be released in 2005 from Rocafella Records but that album wasn’t ever released due to lack of sales, business conflicts, the Jay-Z vs. Dame Dash feud/beef, and internal business politics. Only 500 copies were pressed onto vinyl. This vinyl is very much mixed with rock, pop, soul, and blues sounds.

The songs such as Ain’t Nobody, Fire, Child Of The King, Walk Right Up, You Ain’t Shit To Me, and So Sexy should have been included on this vinyl. But definitely Ain’t Nobody and Fire.

Bling Bling is a fast paced pop-soul oriented song with hyphy beats that are off the hook. In fact, you can hear some heavy bass notes with that edge rock sound. Other than that, Bling Bling is a very pop oriented song which is a club song full of energy. Bling Bling was a song for the Lovechild album that was supposed to be released in 2005. This song was also a demo song for 3LW and The Cheetah Girls.

Some hardcore Nicole Wray fans claim and say that Bling Bling was a leftover song from the Elektric Blue album that dropped in 2001. However Bling Bling was a song for the Lovechild album that was supposed to be released in 2005. The song Bling Bling was also a demo song for 3LW and later on was used by The Cheetah Girls as well. So Bling Bling was NOT a track for Elektric Blue at all.

Bling Bling is one of those club songs to groove your body to. This song is for the ladies to get their girls to and get iced up! This is a song to move your body body and throw your hands up to! A song to party to all night long! So toast to the good life!

All the girls get iced up. Let’s bang the clubs. Because the night is young and Nicole wants shake her thang. Nicole’s got big wheels which is drop-top Bentley 23-inch rims. Let’s head to the bar. Toast to the good life. She can’t get enough as she feels as if you’re the one. She’s burning up inside. She feels the heat keep thuggin’ her. Tonight is right. Twist our bodies to ecstasy. Hot girl is what she be. Toast to the good life. Bling, bling all night.

Cuties push up in slow motion. She feels free. Nicole has got her eyes on the man wearing a fitted hat with the baggy jeans. It feels so good. DJ, just let the record play. Let’s dance the night away. The heat is burning up inside.

The bridge is super catchy and poppish. Read these lyrics.

[Bridge]
Move ya body, body, lift ya hands up
Roll ya waist now, touch the ground
Pump real fast, check my diddy bop
Do that diddy bop (Woo)
Move ya body, body, lift ya hands up
Roll ya waist now, touch the ground
Pump real fast, check my diddy bop
Do that diddy bop (One more time)
Move ya body, body, lift ya hands up
Roll ya waist now, touch the ground
Pump real fast, check my diddy bop
Do that diddy bop (Woo)

Where I’m From is a sad heartfelt song about where Nicole Wray is from. The song has a sad bluesy feeling overall. Nicole has a bluesy touch and feel in her vocals for this song. That is why Where I’m From will remind you of a sad Blues song.

Nicole Wray came from an area where crime and poverty was commonplace. Nicole didn’t exactly come from a middle class upbringing. She grew up in the projects. Nicole Wray is from the slums. The area Nicole Wray is from is where people ain’t got no money and people look real funny. Dogs roam behind each other because they have no shelter or home. Young guys on the corner be pushin’ real hard from Monday to Sunday regardless of the legality of the product or not. Whether it’s legal or illegal. People ain’t got no money but they all have a lot of love to share and give with each other. Nicole came from the streets. She doesn’t come from a wealthy family.

Act A Fool is an upbeat soul song with a fast tempo making the pace very uptempo. The song is upbeat as a typical Nicole Wray song usually is. The song has both a Spanish flair and Latin music flair to it due to the rhythmic guitar used and Spanish flamenco beats. You will love the Spanish/Latin rhythmic guitar used on this song. Upbeat and uptempo are two words that can best describe this song.

Sound quality for the song Act A Fool is fairly low but good enough for you to enjoy at home or traveling on the road. Act A Fool has a low production sound and vibe to it.

She often fusses and fights with her lover over the way she acts. Nicole acts like a fool which still trying to be a background singer in the music industry. Still Nicole Wray manages to make it through her days. Sometimes she just does want to act like a damn fool as the song portrays.

I rate this EP 5/5*****!!
