Flying under the wings of producers Missy Elliott and Timbaland, Tweet has released a debut that showcases her breathy coo on a series of well-crafted but too-similar ballads. As a result, when she goes up-tempo, as on ”Boogie 2Nite,” there’s a vigor you wish the rest of the CD contained. She name-checks so many tobacco brands on ”Smoking Cigarettes,” I expected her to sing the surgeon general’s warning. Special credit: ”Drunk,” for its pointed refusal to turn the drunk-on-love cliche into a metaphor.
