AllMusic Review by AllMusic

With an equal emphasis on sultry R&B ballads and uptempo dance-pop, Paula DeAnda's 2006 self-titled debut can easily be filed next to contemporary R&B divas like Beyoncé and Mariah Carey. The album's lead-off single, "Doing Too Much," a gliding slow jam with a pulsing, hip-hop-flavored beat and sweet backing vocals that recall Destiny's Child, is an excellent example of what the artist does well. Yet DeAnda's voice and lyrics add a bit of bite to the glossy R&B, and that distinctive twist, along with major-label support (the artist was signed to Arista), make the singer a talent to watch.
