A Plus

Album Review: A Plus - Pride Liberty Detroit (8/10)

Detroit born sisters Anesha and Antea Birchett may just be pop music’s best-kept secret. They’ve written songs for a mind-blowing client list of top drawer artists, including Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber, Mary J. Blige and many more. This album, the debut of these talented singer-songwriters as performing artists in their own right, is chock full of R&B/soul ballads and jazzy ruminations on heartbreak and betrayal, self-empowerment and survival. Peerless harmonies and stellar piano abound at the core of noteworthy material like “Go Away” and “Pride Over Me.” “Strangers” is a standout take on relationships and “’Bout That Life” lightly swings.

Rating: 8/10
