The debut cd by MNEK who happens to be gay is filled with r&b hip hop funk dance tracks. “Tongue” is an instant dance mover and how can you resist the lyric “But there it is on the tip of my Tongue I think I love you.” “Phone” has a sweeping yummy hook. The sweet line “Why’d you call my phone when I need time alone.” will melt your throat. He’s published music at the tender age of 14 and now releases this fantastic album at 23. Infectious stuff to the max. The “Colour” duet with Hailee Steinfeld is luscious. The smooth but accelerated beats on “Crazy World” will make you ditsy. The final song “Touched by You” is the closest you’ll get to a ballad. The lyric “I can smell on the sheets” resonates as his voices smothers with emotional depth.
