Want My Keys
Tyme is constant, and ever changing, evolving our perceptions from one moment to the next. Tyme is infinite and ageless, whose growth is evident in the diversity of her style. Tyme takes risks and crosses boundaries others say should not be crossed. Tyme says: "I was told that once I decided on what style singing I wanted to do I couldn't change it because it would confuse my audience. I disagree. To me, it's more about the feeling of the song. A good song is a good song." Tyme has shown her versatility through her first album, which was classified as "neo-soul", up to her new single and upcoming sophomore album. The single, "Want My Keys", deviates from the first album because it has a dirty down south beat, with a chanty, catchy hook. The only similarity this song has to the ones prior is that she still has her R&B vocals caressing the verses. "The thing that really separates my second album from the norm is that I made it into a soundtrack to a book I wrote about my experiences trying to make it as an independent artist in New York. Moving from L.A., I didn't realize how drastically my life would change. I went from driving down a sunny California freeway in my convertible BMW to living in a roach -infested homeless shelter. My experience inspired me to write a book, with each song on my second album, coinciding with chapters from it. For example, the chapter that goes along with the single is about me meeting a Harlem pretty-boy that I fall in love with and he just uses me to no end until I get fed up. Once you hear the song, and read the chapter, it puts you right where I was when I snatched my keys back!" The Book & CD are due for release in December 09' ----Leroy McKelvey aka "Midnight"
