Keyshia has an amazing voice and I'm happy this album got the shine it deserved. I Changed My Mind, Love, and You've Changed are some of her best songs. The album is the perfect length and although there are moments of generic music, Keyshia definitely makes up for them. I wish the album's production was a little bit better but I'm not really gonna complain. Much better than most 2000s R&B albums, The Way It Is is worth a listen.
Love was her best song
