||Unexpected CD (2007)
Rob Raio music CDs A notable improvement over Lumidee's lackluster debut, ALMOST FAMOUS, 2007's UNEXPECTED finds the Harlem-based R&B singer/rapper (born Lumidee Cedeno) in considerably more mature and confident form. While superstars Snoop Dogg and Shaggy are on hand, the record's truly standout tracks include the pulsing N.O.R.E. collaboration "You Got Me," where Lumidee shows off her rhyming skills, and "She's Like the Wind," a cover of the Patrick Swayze song from the DIRTY DANCING soundtrack that features the smooth vocal stylings of Tony Sunshine.
