Keisha White - Whatcha Gonna Do
At just 16 years old - and you're already thinking precocious stage-school brat - Keisha White appeared on Paul Oakenfold's Harder They Come and Desert Eagle Disc's Bigger Better Deal. One year later and with White currently on tour with The Black Eyed Peas, she releases Watcha Gonna Do.
With a confident opening, Keisha White's debut could be a very good single and a sign that she's heading for a pop/R&B style some distance from the lifeless music of Usher, Britney Spears and Janet Jackson - music that has stripped out whatever passion there ever was in pop and hip-hop - but this is short-lived as Someday, the theme tune to the BBC's Tracey Beaker series, is simply more of the same old lacklustre r'n'b.
With the music not being anything out of the ordinary - it's not far from Britney Spears' current number one, Toxic - it's only when listening to the lyrics that Keisha White really begins to grate. With the PR sheet saying that Watcha Gonna Do is about the relationship between kids and their parents, Keisha White looks to be aiming little higher than being the new Billie Piper, beginning with a remake of Because We Want To.
With that ambition, all Keisha White has to look forward to now is the celebrity boyfriend, the rumours of cocaine bingeing, the lost weekends in rural pubs and a desperate attempt at an acting comeback before she hits twenty-five.
