Our Rating: “4.3/5”
Album Review: The 19-year-old High School Musical starlet, Vanessa Hudgens, is poised for definite pop stardom with her latest release Identified. The new album features many Pop, R&B, Dance, and Soulful tracks, including the standout song “Don’t Leave,” and others like “Amazed,” which is a smooth mid-tempo ballad, featuring female rapper Lil’ Mama.
Songs including “Last Night,” “Identified,” and the single “Sneakernight,” all show that Vanessa Hudgens isn’t the same musician she used to be. She stated, “I always had a knack for a more soulful, jazzy sound, so right off the bat I wanted to kind of let loose, and come up with a sound no one has heard from me before.” And the High School Musical star isn’t exaggerating.
If you liked Vanessa’s recording debut V, which was certified GOLD by the RIAA, in 2007, then you’ll definitely love Identified, maybe even more! – BJay (Teen Scoop Owner)
