Music Review: Algebra Blessett’s ‘Purpose’

I first stumbled onto Algebra sometime last year while looking for new music on MySpace. The track I fell in love with was “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”. I felt like it kinda sorta fit how I was feeling at the moment, and I do believe that the song was on my MySpace profile for awhile. Anyways, a few months back, I went out and copped Algebra’s album which was entitled Purpose. I let it sit for a few weeks before I actually took the time to listen to it. The first time I heard it, I was blown away. This album has been in my rotation ever since.

Here’s a track by track synopsis of the album:

At This Time: Opening Track on the CD. Algebra talks about how she feels about the dude in her life.

Halfway: Old school joint. Produced by Kwame (you know, dude that used to rock the polkadots back in the day). Algebra talks about wanting to progress in a relationship, but for that to happen, she needs the dude to meet her halfway.

Run & Hide: Talks about realizing that she’s in a relationship not worth being in.

U Do It For Me: Track where she talks about how a new dude is making her switch up her M.O.

Happy After: Track about wanting to live happily ever after. I wasn’t really feeling this one.

My Pride: Track that talks about Algebra letting her pride getting in the way of reconciling with her man after an argument.

Simple Complication: Track where Algebra has to deal with her man getting another chick pregnant. She tells him to handle his responsiblities.

What Happened?: My favorite track on the album. Track where she wonders what went wrong with a relationship that just ended.

No Idea: Song where Algebra talks about developing feelings for a friend that she came up with.

Tug of War: Song about the ups and downs of a relationship.

Can I Keep U?: Track where Algebra talks about wanting to be with a dude that’s not really emotionally available.

I Think I Love U: Track where Algebra talks about having feelings for a dude. The title is pretty self explanatory.

Come Back: My second favorite track on the album: Algebra talks about how she wants a dude back in her life after he left her. She talks about how she wants to try to please him.

Now and Then: Let’s give this thing called singing a try…lol This is a track about how she felt about someone in the past, and how she feels about dude now.

  1. You also have to try to find this track she has called “Nothing to Prove” — sucks that it wasn’t on the album! It’s one of my theme songs…
