Taja Sevelle's debut album was very unique at the time of it's release back in 1987. Taja was not a teen idol or a pop queen but she did her share to bring some very good music to the scene. In a time of Madonna, Janet J., Tiffany, & Debbie, Taja stood very much apart from those performers. Some say she was just a puppet of Prince but that is just far from true. Taja was 25 years old at the time of her debut album.

Love Is Contagious- The lead off single garnered Taja some attention especially overseas. The music and vocal production were very original and fresh. Taja's voice could be described as a cross between Sade and Deniece Williams. 10/10

Wouldn't You Love To Love Me- The Prince penned song that escaped Madonna and landed at Taja's door. Very funky cool song that is very much of Prince's style. 10/10

Popular- A song about girls who look for attention in the wrong way. Very good production. Excellent chorus. 10/10

How Could You Do Me So Bad- Beautiful ballad that shows what Taja can do best. I think Mariah must have been influenced a little by the production of this song. 10/10

Take Me For A Ride- Sounds similar to the style of Madhouse music and we all know why. This is another Prince-ish sounding upbeat tune penned by Taja. 10/10

If I Could Get Your Attention- This song has a strong drum beat through it and it sounds so cool. This album just gets better and better as time goes by. This song could have been released today and stood against some of todays music. 10/10

Infatuation- This song is one of those Rock'N'Soul songs. Taja sounds great with r&b and pop-rock grooves. She can hang.10/10

Baby's Got A Lover- Simply Sweet. A lullaby about first love. One of Taja's best songs ever.

Taja Sevelle was an excellent singer, but she didn't get enough publicity with this album. Nonetheless, I love this album and Taja's a great singer. Here's my review.

1.) Love is Contagious: Taja's well-known hit song to date. A nice soothing ballad along with Taja's soulful singing voice.
2.) Wouldn't You Love To Love Me: A cool, upbeat song that's very catchy and fun to sing along to.
3.) Popular: Great funky song with great music, great chorus, and Taja's great voice.
4.) How Could You Do Me So Bad: A beautiful ballad that starts out slow with the lovely piano music and then switches to sort of an R&B slow jam. I luv this song!
5.) Take Me For A Ride: Another cool funky song to dance along to along with a catchy chorus.
6.) If I Could Get Your Attention: Cool, infectious funky song with a catchy melody and chorus.
7.) Infatuation: Great upbeat song with a mixture of pop, soul, and
rock 'n' roll.
8.) Baby's Got A Lover: Another sweet ballad that's soothing and relaxing to listen to.
9.) Mama 16: Funky, upbeat song which could be considered an anthem for young teenage mothers.
10.) Fly For Your Painted Rainbow: Beautiful ballad to end the album off on a good note.

I give this album 5 stars, but if I could, I'd give it 10 or 100 stars!

This cd is so good I only recently bought it on cd after having the cassette for nearly 20 years. Taja Sevelle's first album is still one of my favorites of all time thanks to Prince of course.

Taja's rookie album is great from beginning to end. I still get the same sensation I got when I listened to it 21 years ago. This is a must have for any Prince fan. Love is contagious is the most well known song from this debut album, but the real gems are the Prince-penned wouldn't you love to love me and baby's got a lover. Vanity and Apollonia came before her but I believe that she is definately head and shoulders about them. It is truely worth the price

I Love "Love is Contagious" had been looking and looking for it to load up on my IPOD. I got happy when I found this page and link to THE MP3 ALBUM. I so wanted "Love is Contagious" . I hit on the link and it takes me to a whole Different "Taja" ! so Sad that Not Even "AMAZON" can get it right. There is only ONE Taja and that is Taja Sevelle! I keep tell'n everbody and now I am surprised that Amazon even messed it up. Gloom, Despair and Agony on me .....
