Editorial Reviews

2009 album from the R&B singer, rapper, actress, author and entrepreneur featuring three bonus tracks. The album features guest appearances from Dre (Cool & Dre), Busta Rhymes, Mary J. Blige, Jadakiss and Pharrell. The production was handled by Cool & Dre and Pharrell Williams. ''It doesn't have a specific theme - each [song] was so different from the next, me being the common denominator. And I realized my different characters were coming through on these [songs]. My acting, singing and rapping identities all came together under one roof as well as my taste in different kinds of music. I'd say its half rap and half singing. If I had to categorize it, it would be more like Hip Hop Urban Alternative''. -Queen Latifah (L.A. Times). Features the singles 'Cue The Rain' and 'People'.

By I'm hungry. feed me VINE VOICE on September 27, 2009
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Queen Latifah is back on the hip-hop scene, Sort of. Persona combines a great deal of her rap skills with her singing skills. And While it's a great return to rap, There's not as much rap as we all anticipated.

1. The Light - An Excellent rap track on making it in the entertainment business and lot letting discouragement from others stop you with an excellent intro shouting out others who have made it who originate from New Jersey such as Bruce Springsteen, The Jonas Brothers, Whitney Houston, John Travolta, ETC. - 5/5
2. Fast Car FT Missy Elliott - Missy's rap made this song. but Latifah's - She was t-paining too much With the auto tune. - 3/5
3. Cue The rain - The first single, Based from the Classic The Chain by Fleetwood Mac. A Very catchy song about being driven "SO Insane" In a relationship - 5/5
4. My Couch FT Dre of Cool & DRE - While lyrically it's a great song, Dre's over use of Auto-tune can get a tad annoying 3.5/5
5. Take me Away With you Featuring Marsha Ambrosius, of Floetry fame - Marsha and Queen - GREAT COMBINATION. need I say More? 5/5
6. With you - This is a like a dub version of "Take me Away With you" - Unnecessary addition to the album - 2 stars
7. Hard to love ya FT Dre of cool & Dre, Busta Rhymes, Shawn Stockman of Boyz II men - One of my favorites on the album. Title pretty much explains what The song is about - 5/5
8. What's The plan - Another over use of Autotune by I think Dre (Male vocals went uncredited in this) - I'm not feeling this one too much - 1.5/5
9. Long A$$ week - Who hasn't had one of those? -5/5
10.

So many want to be quick to say they want the old Latifah, instead of realizing how much she has grown. This is a woman who can pull off a dramatic role and turn right around and be silly in an off the wall comedy. I can respect that about her. She wants to be relevant to all audiences. The title of the album explains it all. Personally I didn't want to hear the QL of so long ago and was pleasantly surprised by this album. It is definitely underrated. While I have had the album for a few weeks I have only now pulled it out to give it a listen and it is in repeat play mode now. So sad that the world has slept on this.

Ok this is officially my favorite album by Queen. It totally bumped all the others that were my favorite. The other albums now have select tracks that are still favorites but the number one album is this one for me. I'm totally feeling just about every song either through the lyric or the music. I've listened to this CD through to the end over 20 times since I've bought it. I love how open minded this album feels, Queen wasn't afraid to go where her passions took her. Personally she's an awesome pioneer raptress but I'm in love with her voice and want her to sing more. I first fell in love with her voice when she did "Simply Beautiful". Eargasm!!!! Truly addictive, I'm so moved by her evolution on this album its hypnotic...........

Ok I thought I was finished expressing my love. But since I'm listening to the CD right now I thought I might name the tracks that are most moving starting with "Runnin" , well maybe "Long ass week" DAMN I mean, "The world", I'm sorry I mean "Cue the rain" and "People" and "Fast Car".......Do you really want me to go through this??? You get the picture the album is hot and all the tracks are amazing!!!!

Queen Latifah rocks.

She also raps, riffs, and sings like nobody's business.

The idea behind Latifah's new album Persona - to show off her myriad musical abilities - would come off as contrived and gimmicky for nearly any other performer. For the Queen, however, it simply makes sense. Given her incredible talent and gift for seamlessly switching from one genre to another, this seems to be the most natural way to experience her heart and soul. There's no doubt she could put together a more traditional "focused" album - one need only listen to The Dana Owens Album for proof of that - but something about the variance and diversity of Persona makes it feel more real; more like the woman behind it.

Persona opens with The Light, an inspiring song-and-rap track that includes a shout-out to New Jersey- and the big names who got their start there. (Who knew that John Travolta and Shaquille O'Neal came from the Garden State?) The song has a great summer feel, with uplifting beats and a good message that permeates the album, but it's not the strongest track, largely due to the limited lyrics.

Fast Cars more than makes up or it, setting the tone for the rest of the album by raising the level of upbeat self-confidence without crossing over into cockiness; Queen Latifah is a class act on top of her talent. The only downside to this song is the (over)use of some vocal digitalization, which Latifah clearly doesn't need. Fortunately the Auto-Tune ends here, and can even be overlooked on this track thanks in part to a sassy, humor-filled rap injection from by Missy Elliott.

Cue the Rain - the album's first single - is H-O-T.
