There’s a little bit of everything on Jazmine’s first LP. Frantically speaking, she totally experimented with a little bit of every genre as much as possible. The odd part is that most of her songs tackle a specific issue in a person’s life (specifically like a mature woman). The sultry “In Love With Another Man” – which somehow toys the idea of adultery but doesn’t want to hurt the feeling of the other man. “Call Me Guilty“, which shows how Jazmine takes on action about her abusive partner. The exuberantly performed “Bust Your Windows” which is practically the R&B take on Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats”/ her revenge to a guy that somehow broke her heart. And The Carribean-inspired, “Need U Bad” which shows Jazmine’s needing for a guys love. and the most enjoyable beat in the entire album, the quirky, energetic “One Night Stand“, which showed Jazmine’s vulnerability
On the other part, Fearless shows a lot of anxiety – emotion wise. The soulful “Lions, Tigers and Bears” which depicts the fear of loving someone. “Fear” which fondles into our subconsciousness about having our own set of fears in life. The good thing about Fearless is that most of the songs are equally easy to associate to many of the listeners of this album. It’s realism makes this album so great lyrically. The most important factor of all is that Jazmine never failed to deliver the whole album without superfluousness. I’m pretty sure about a long-term career for this talented girl.
