Album Review

Truth Hurts is not just another contemporary R&B vocalist to compare to Alicia Keys or Ashanti. For one thing, the executive producer on her debut Truthfully Speaking is Dr. Dre, and the album was released on his Aftermath sublabel of Interscope. She also benefits from a laundry list of the best commercial hip-hop trackmasters around: Dre, DJ Quik, Timbaland, even R. Kelly. Despite this star-studded credit list, Truthfully Speaking is a bland record; Truth Hurts' vocals, while evocative and rangy, aren't incredibly strong (especially when she's stretching a note), and she usually needs a backup chorus to keep the songs sounding good. The single "Addictive" is bizarre, with an Indian filmi vocal sample sounding stronger than Truth Hurts herself, and a brief appearance by Rakim strictly phoning it in. A few of the productions make for good tracks, though most of the time Truth Hurts struggles to keep up with the best in the contemporary R&B field.

Regarding the song Addictive...

(from another website): Of all Hindi film songs, the Bappi Lahiri-composed and Lata Mangeshkar-sung Thoda Resham Lagta Hai must have had the funniest history. When it was originally released in Jyoti in the early 80s, it flopped. Very few people remembered it till last year, when it suddenly hit the headlines after American singer Truth Hurts and producer Dr Dre used a sample of the original song in their hit Addictive. When we contacted Bappi Lahiri last year, he took time to recollect the song, and took even more time to confirm which film it was from. Addictive spawned its own remix — as Harry Anand churned out Kaliyon Ka Chaman. Meanwhile, Saregama HMV sued Truth Hurts, Dr Dre and record label Aftermath, whereas Bappi sued Dr Dre and Aftermath. Bappi won the case earlier this year, after an injunction was passed on the further sale of the album unless the music director was credited.


Apparently the lady on the soundbite on Addictive sued Aftermath Records for using her voice without her permission. Therefore any future copies of this album, or the sellin of the song addictive would cause legal repercussions at this point.

Where is "Addictive"

I agree - the only song worth buying is missing. Please, iTMS, add it back! Thank you

Urban vocalist Truth Hurts began her career in grand fashion with the aid of Dr. Dre. The enormously successful West Coast rap producer signed her to his Aftermath label in the wake of his chart-topping productions for Mary J. Blige ("Family Affair") and Eve ("Let Me Blow Your Mind"), around the same time Dre presented his former songwriting partner Knoc-Turn'al and the return of golden-age legend Rakim. Just as he did for those two, Dre crafted a sure-fire lead single for Truth Hurts, "Addictive."...
