Cut over to Priscilla Renea's YouTube page and you will discover a startling fact: the girl can sing. Not in a Jennifer Hudson, blow-out-the-barn-door kind of way, but with a savvy freshness that might put old-timers in mind of early jazz singers. The girl's full of life, and her major label debut (miracle of miracles!) doesn't airbrush it away. Even if she puts you in mind of Rihanna one minute and Katy Perry the next, Renea's innate spark keeps things light and interesting, and it will even make you forgive missteps like "Bacon and Eggs"' unforgivably silly refrain.
