Philippine rap artist Chill
released her first album, Chill
, in 1997. While not the most vocally agile of rappers, Chill
exhibits much charm and personality on this album, and it is this charisma that makes Chill
a worthwhile listening experience.
The arrangements are imaginative and interesting throughout the album, and the music is professionally performed. In addition, Chill
acts as producer on this album. She asserts herself as a person and a female on the lyrics, and she is not shy about letting people know what she expects and desires.
"Party All Night," as the title implies, is a fun-filled, raucous party song, which Chill
also uses as a platform to assert her rights, as well as doing some high and mighty boasting: "I'm steamy/And I'm dreamy/And every girl wants to be me."
"Touch Move" is an intriguing tune that works off a hypnotic bass figure, as Chill
seductively intones the words "Touch move." Aside from rapping, Chill
also tries her hand at singing, but her efforts mostly fall flat, as heard on "Nais Ko Mapasaakin Ka" (trans: I Want You to Be Mine) and "Kung Alam Mo Lang" (trans: If You Only Knew), where she sings off-key too often.
"Freestyle" features several guest rap artists, including famed Philippine male rapper Andrew E., who, as is Chill
, is signed to Sony Music Entertainment Philippines. Chill
's rapping may be a bit amateurish, but her music is enjoyable and holds one's attention.
