Having appeared on Paul Oakenfold's The Harder They Come at the young age of sixteen, Keisha White has been continually tipped for the top. Now on tour with the Black Eyed Peas (and still only eighteen) it would seem the White is making good on all of her early promise.
There's no denying that Keisha has a voice well beyond her years. She has a wonderfully mature delivery that doesn't need to resort to histrionics to impress - It's what she's singing that's the major problem. It is always said that great singers could sing a shopping list and still make people take notice. In the case of Don't Fool A Woman In Love, the shopping list option would have been preferable. The lyrics are poorly written and don't scan particularly well. Let's be honest - if you're eighteen and singing about being fooled in love then perhaps you should just admit you probably weren't in love: you were just fooled good and proper. Be more careful next time, and spare us your dodgy lyrics. You might have a mature voice, but you've obviously not quite grown up just yet.
It seems that her label don't quite know what to do with her. The song is R'n'B light: More rural than urban; The musical equivalent of Surrey. As such Don't Fool A Woman is a poor showcase for a great voice. With a good set of writers behind her, she will become one of the U.K.'s biggest voices.
