Product Description

Signed on the spot by Clive Davis, 16-year-old singer-songwriter Paula DeAnda is already turning heads with her soulful, sexy, electrifying style. Her song, "Doing Too Much" has already done so much, quickly climbing Billboard's charts! Paula's new single, "Walk Away", is also on the hit-list. Watch out world, this is the only beginning for Paula DeAnda.

Amazon.com

Texas-born Paula DeAnda's slick, solid debut disc does something most teen singers attempt, but few fail to accomplish: It glimmers with youthful energy that should appeal to her age group, and it offers enough weighty flavor to attract older listeners. DeAnda's vocals are confident and charismatic on party jam "Make 'Em Clap To This" and urban-tinged debut hit "Doin' Too Much." Follow-up radio single "Walk Away (Remember Me)" is even better, like a lost track from Mariah Carey's Mimi opus. It helps that DeAnda's street-savvy collaborators include Frankie J, Happy Perez, Natalie and soul heartthrob Ne-Yo, who produced most of the disc's vocals. "Easy" rides a psychedelic pop groove, and "When It Was a Me" is a tear-stained ode to lost love, anchored by impressively emotive vocal work. Keyboards mingle with synthesized beats throughout the disc. And DeAnda, so charismatic and fresh, is simply irresistible. --Joey Guerra

As I listened to the first five songs off of Paula DeAnda's self-titled debut album, I was completely engaged in the melodic beats, with her voice being a perfect fit for the material she decided to record here. She did hit some bumps along the way throughout the last eight tracks, particularly the awful track "I'll Be Down For You," but overall it was quite a nice surprise. Here is a description of some tracks from this CD:

1)Doing Too Much - the opening track, and a nice little tune with a catchy chorus and a little rap from Baby Bash. Very upbeat, and although the lyrics are a little juvenile at times, we've all experienced teenage love at some point.

2)Walk Away - My favorite. WHAT A CHORUS! No surprise, it was co-written by the very talented Christina Milian. Would have been a killer track without the added uh's and uh huh, yeah's (the universal sophisticated language of hip-hop). Could be remixed into a killer trance tune.

3)When it Was Me - Great summertime song, and no guest vocalists either. Sung beautifully, short and sweet. The lyrics will not be confused with Dylan, but the music is on par with the best out there today.

4)Overloved - a ballad written by veteran songriter Diane Warren (who wrote bundles of chart-topping hits in the late 80's and early 90's including "Love Will Lead You Back" by Taylor Dayne.) Good song to slow the pace of the uptempo songs here.

5)Let's Go Out Tonight - One that will grow on you. DeAnda's breezy vocals wrap around a piano and synth beat that is similar in melody and style to Joe Jackson's "Steppin Out" which is ironic given the title of the song, maybe it was intended to be, I don't know. But a good track regardless. Great music, very simple lyrics.

I discovered Paula DeAnda by accident; I turned on MTV Hits one day and saw her video for "Doing Too Much". I was impressed because she has a very good voice; still, like the title says, the song wasn't doing too much and her self-titled album in turn didn't debut at a very high spot on the Billboard 200. But after her second single "Walk Away (Remember Me)" began to grow on me, it renewed my interest in her, so I decided to check her out.

There is a good number of quality songs on here, like "Wanna Be With You", "When It Was Me", and especially "I'll Be Down For You". And "Overloved" is a lot better than most recent Diane Warren songs. The final track, "Footprints On My Heart", is one of those cases where the lyrics look kind of cheesy on paper, but they sound fine when you hear the song.

The thing that brings the album down, though, is that Paula really has a bad choice of guest rappers. At times their verses hurt otherwise great songs, like when the DEY can't even TALK on beat at the beginning of "Walk Away". And I shouldn't have been too surprised about Baby Bash's underwhelming verse on "Doing Too Much" because he's always wack, but another thing about that song is that I don't understand why Paula is doing the exact same adlibs during every chorus past the first verse.

"Easy" features Lil' Wayne saying something about "having more plaques (Plax} than tartar", and although I normally think Ak'Sent is underrated, she kicks a pretty okay verse on "Make `Em Clap to This", which is really just a lazy sample of Rakim's famous line from "Eric B. Is President". Speaking of those two songs, they also prove that maybe Paula should stick to ballads. All in all, this is still a good album, but for her next album she needs to leave the guest stars behind.

I thought this was a pretty good cd. It's very pop, often teeny bopperish, but not annoying. Paula has a pretty good voice and many of the songs are very catchy. Some I liked on the very first listen. This cd was a nice suprise. I only bought it for the song "Doing too Much" because I saw the cd brand new for $7.98 and thought "why not." However, they are many songs on the cd that are very good and as a new comer she did an excellent job. It's far better than most of the crap that has been released lately.

Even though people who have reviewed this album say the lyrics are stupid, you have to look at it from the point of view of a 16 yr old. When you think of it that way the lyrics make perfect sense. Despite the whole content of the songs, you've got to admit this girl can sing! I look forward to seeing what she comes out with next.Give her a couple more years with some more mature material and she'll be awesome!

I love this CD! It totally reminds me of life as a teenager since it's teen pop and always makes me reminisce about life when I was younger. I especially love Walk Away (Remember Me). There's something about that song that reminds me of something happy happening.

If I didn't tell you she's barely sixteen. Seems like with the popularity of Rihanna, JoJo, and now Paula DeAnda, I guess the new popular thing now is young R&B singers. That's cool as long as they can sing, which at least all three of these can do. The main problem I have (more with JoJo than any young singer) is the writing. Most of the lyrics on Paula DeAnda's debut album are slim, and really weak. At least Ne-Yo wrote a few of these, so this album as a whole is tolerable lyrically.

For the most part the album contains of mostly R&B-lite like the two hit signles "Doing Too Much" and "Walk Away (Remember Me)". IF you're looknig for 13 songs that sound exactly like that you'll for the most part be satisfied. "When It Was Me" is similar to these both tracks, with a sweet and sour production and a "when I was that girl trying to make it big" message. At least it's more interesting than most of these tracks. Vocally it is as usual strong and makes a good, overall solid track. "Overloved" carries on the same production, maybe a bit stronger vocally than most tracks on the album. And, yes, it means over-loved, and like I said, you won't find very strong or inspiring lyrics here since the only writer well-known is Ne-Yo, and even then I think he's a bit overrated. "Good Girl" is a wise choice for an old-school R&B song without being too corny with the horns. Lyrically it is pretty average "I thought you could be the one, you're all I need", and that's where the corny comes in, but otherwise nothing makes it skippable. And there's no guest rapper to screw things up. "Wanna Be With You" is kinda average comparing to these other tracks. The production is like others, but seems a bit loopy, and suffers from a ridiculously weak chorus. V Nice (who?!) doesn't help or hurt the song.
