Shevyn Roberts: Superstitious
Did You Know?

Louis Yoelin manufactured the beats and wrote the lyrics on this album first and then sent them to Roberts (except Rock Wi Chu which was written and produced by Jay South). Roberts recorded her vocal work alongside the beats and then mailed them both back to Yoelin.

Okay, so truth. I went to Amazon and started listening to some of the samples of Superstitious, an album from performer Shevyn Roberts. I didn’t like it, but I tried to give myself some space in between listens to go back in with fresh ears. I still didn’t like it.

The first track off the album is a Kei$ha type pop track that features Roberts rapping (or what someone would do if they were mocking rap in some sort of terrible parody) and a plethora of pop culture sayings in a desperate attempt to grab an in with the now generation. I can’t tell you how much I hated this track. It’s this years Friday (Rebecca Black).

The title track was okay, just not anything revolutionary. It’s the same old, same old type of song that begs to be in the top 40 radio playlist by being repetitive and using a generic sound pop hook, but blame producer Louis Yoelin for that.

What can I say about the rest of the album? It wants to be something it just can’t be with Roberts limited vocal ability and Yeolin’s karaoke quality beats. Even with the use of what I can only assume was a cheap version of autotune in the EP ender, Rock Wit Chu, Roberts voice sounds off along with warped as if she’s singing several feet under water. There was just nothing to love about this album. It tried to hard to be current and cool but it just came off desperate and under produced. I would not suggest.
