Let me is R&B singer Sowelu’s second release since signing with AVEX in 2010. This mini-album follows the theme of the active desire and lust of the modern woman. Going by that you would expect a bunch of sexually charged songs right? Well that’s not exactly the case.

The closest you’ll get to any of that is the single Let Me Lead U. You would think that I Want U To… would qualify but that’s more about wanting to be in love and get married rather than a looking for a few thrusts of the magic stick. What you actually get on this album is what you should expect of Sowelu and that are a few solid mid-tempo and ballad Urban/Pop tracks and one Dance/Pop track. The lead singles are definitely, for a lack of a cleaner term, cock teases.

Is that disappointing? Well it depends on what you were expecting after hearing the singles. But what remains after the first 2 songs is actually worth listening to. One More Kiss is probably the most accessible out of the four non-single tracks on the album. Go straight for that one if you’re looking for a quick hit before diving deeper in the album.

Probably of more interest is where one can get the hot video for Let Me Lead U. Well this album comes in two versions, For Men & For Women. Each sporting different covers and bonus DVD content. Let Me Lead U is on the For Men version for those who uh… Want to figure out why that dude in the video is all in pain & stuff. It ain’t hard to figure out folks.

Anyway, I’m not exactly sure this will please a lot people who were thinking that Sowelu was making a drastic change in her sound. I mean it’s nice to know that she can sound just as good on non-R&B/Pop songs but in the end this is pretty much the same old, same old.
