Nobody’s Fool introduces a young Puerto Rican (Latin soul sensation) Edwin Serrano better known as ”Lil Eddie” with both a gift of talent and passion for being a singer/songwriter. Lil Eddie’s accomplishments are inspirational. His debut album is where his songwriting skills truly thrive. Mario Winans lent a helping hand in the albums production for Lil Eddie to become a “Latin soul superstar”. In fact, he produced the entire album. Lil Eddie had co-wrote all of the material on his debut album Nobody’s Fool. Lil Eddie was the first artist signed to super producer and Bad Boy recording artist Mario “Yellow Man” Winans’ Yellow City imprint via Florida-based Big3 Records.
I Don’t Think I Ever is about Lil Eddie thinking that he will never fall in love. On the song I Don’t Think I Ever, Lil Eddie discovers the true meaning of love. This song is Lil Eddie’s haunting declaration of love. Bad Boy recording artist Mario Winans even chimes in on a single verse. I Don’t Think I Ever is truly heartfelt and timid. Think “I don’t think I will ever fall in love.” for example. That’s the sentence that probably inspired Lil Eddie to write the song I Don’t Think I Ever.
Meeting this person has changed Eddie’s life and his days are much more brighter with this special person now in his life. The joy she brings is like no other. This person brings on joy like no other. His feelings are true as he has never been in love before.
Lil Eddie is not nobody’s fool on Nobody’s Fool. Nobody’s Fool is the most powerful track off the album! Nobody’s Fool tells us all what we need to know about the determination Eddie has had to have to make it this far in his career and in his life. The streets toughen folks to either stay and survive, or to elevate and strive.
Lil Eddie displays confident lyrics in his songs. Lil Eddie states “That song explains why doing this first album was totally necessary for me.” “I have a lot to say.” He is not anybody’s fool.
Save A Little Love is a love song. Lil Eddie is not surprised his girlfriend wants to leave the relationship because her heart feels empty. Lil Eddie can’t commit to her right now but one day she’s going to be his. He don’t want to see her cry. Lil Eddie apparently is not the man for her. Don’t think he’s being selfish. The conversations are running stale.
Gotta Go is dreamy and melodic. Gotta Go is so wild, so melodic. It’s clear that Lil Eddie has been studying the radio well. The track is very much living in the here and now. Gotta live it up! Lil Eddie knows what’s best when it comes to his songwriting.
Lil Eddie is all over the place with his vocals on the track Nervous. However his smooth soulful voice remains in a rather timid mood. Take notice of the live percussion instrumentation in the background. Lil Eddie is living it up in the moment on this particular song. The track is very much living in the here and now. Lil Eddie knows what’s best when it comes to his songwriting.
Live It Up is about living up the moment. Think about living in the here and now. Live It Up is about living it up into the moment.
I rate this album 4/5****!!
