Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon
Artist: DweleGenerally speaking my feelings on reviewing R&B singles are well known by now but let me briefly reiterate them - I'D RATHER NOT DO IT. Still I'm making an exception for Dwele's new joint "I'm Cheatin'" for three reasons - I always liked his shit with Bahamadia and Common, the label sent the CD single without me having to lift a finger, and the song's pretty gangsta in an urban contemporary way. While G-1's beat on the song is a little TOO smooth to bump hard in the ride, Dwele definitely took the TLC "Creep" steelo to the next level with a song he raps as much as sings. Peep the verbals: "You told me never ever, send roses you would rather/Me send them to the other, and then you took off your clothes/You asked me who I wanted; the nasty one I suppose!" That's R&B with a lyrical tip I can respect. Dwele deserves his spot next to D'Angelo and Musiq Soulchild as a singer even the hardest hip-hop heads can still feel.
