Priscilla Renea Debut Set - A Top Story This Week
First single "Dollhouse" is an uptempo empowerment anthem that shows off Renea's airy vocals and earnest, endearing lyrics. Over a bouncy 4/4 beat from Benny Blanco (Britney Spears, 3OH!3) and Lil' Ronnie (Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, R. Kelly), Renea sings fiercely for relationship independence and chides an insensitive, indifferent partner with the line "I ain't a doll, this ain't a dollhouse!". "Dollhouse" bears Renea's immediacy and relevance, the two hallmarks that distinguish her from scores of aspiring singers and elevated her to an internet sensation.
Full-length debut Juxebox is aptly named, for it reflects 20 year old Renea's wide-ranging musical sensibilities and influences, and also the scope of her talents. "Lovesick" is bouncy, piano-powered pop; "Pretty Girl" is introspective, insightful ballad. - more on this story
