EDITORS’ NOTES

On her first album in 11 years, Charlene “Tweet” Keys’ remarkably dulcet voice remains a thing of wonder. She lilts softly as she celebrates a lover on “Magic” as “the best thing since ice cream,” and whispers seductively as she and a backing band weave the simmering soul rapture of “‘Priceless.” For “Somebody Else Will,” the singer reunites with mentor Missy Elliott. Their duet is a throwback to ‘90s R&B—a sampled loop and drum machine beat backing the timeless warning that if you don’t love them right, “somebody else will.”
