Anyone who listened to R&B radio in 2001 is no doubt familiar with Olivia's hit single "Bizounce." The song's stunning contrast of seductive music and brutally frank lyrics about infidelity made for one of the most memorable singles of the year. If you thought Olivia vented all her rage in "Bizounce," then you better run for cover. Her self-titled debut features tracks like "Silly Bitch in Love," an equally venomous account of a lover's infidelity. Olivia does show some range, however, showing her tender side on "When 2 Souls Touch." While her softer tracks show some versatility, Olivia is at her best when she is venting her spleen rather than revealing her soul.
