Every Beat of My Heart

Looking for a modern-day Marvin & Tammi matchup, Sharissa enlists several high- profile gents on Every Beat of My Heart, her sophomore CD. A relatively sane R. Kelly and a plodding R&B beat stymie ”In Love With a Thug,” and ”I’m Heat,” featuring the Game, is lukewarm at best. Sharissa’s impassioned delivery is most stirring on ”I Got Love” and ”I’m Through,” on which she proves she doesn’t need a man to get by.
