Between Friends is the fourth release from urban contemporary singer Tamia, and is packed to the gills with displays of the artist's spectacular, elastic vocal talent. With production help from Shep Crawford and Rodney Jerkins, Between Friends offers up a range of tracks, including bouncy club numbers, sensual love songs, and mainstream pop and R&B. But while the music sounds great, it is Tamia's instrument that takes center stage throughout. The lead-off single, "Can't Get Enough," a pulsing slow jam, demonstrates her ability to be breathy and completely authoritative, whereas tracks like "Happy" show her voice at full throttle. It's no wonder Tamia has four Grammy nominations and two gold albums under her belt. Between Friends promises to be another feather in the singer's cap.
