It’s been one of those days; a day when nothing seems to be going right and you just need something to take your stress away and make you feel like the world can be full of light and love. You need a dose of Teedra Moses’ Complex Simplicity.
The songstress’ debut album, it has held up surprisingly well considering it’s been thirteen years since its release. Part of the reason for that is because Moses has always just been herself, no matter what else is going on in the music era. It gives her songs an air of timelessness that a lot of artists can’t really pull off when they are constantly jumping on to the next trend. The other reason relates to the title of the album itself, Complex Simplicity. The lyrics, full of common sense relationship talk and inner confidence balanced with humility, make for something that feels like chicken soup for the soul…only you can groove to it.
If you want to know why people are still loving her even though she’s only had three official releases (and three mixtapes) since her debut, this is why.
