Kenzie May – “Skeleton Key” Feb07

Kenzie May – “Skeleton Key”...

Ummmm this is a song about a girl (reluctantly) having sex for the first time. I mean sure Kenzie gives several “come hither” looks to the camera. And she’s naked in a pool of water. And she’s some kind swirly British mix so clearly she’s confused by her burgeoning sexuality. It’s a perfectly acceptable pop tune that doesn’t leave a bitter taste in my mouth unlike past British pop singers trying to reclaim the crown. Just so yall understand me… this is not a good song. Tired lyrical construction. Tepid Massive Attack-lite instrumentation. If this wasn’t such a personal song (pure assumption), I would prefer Jhene Aiko’s livelier voice....
