i'm sorry...the singles?
as short a time as she was here--One In A Million, Are You That Somebody, Try Again, We Need A Resolution, and a grip of her other shit, pushed things forward in pop and set standards that keyshia doesn't even have the mental capacity to *want* to try for.
the influence of her and timbo's work was huge even a bunch of culturally coveted indie rock bands (that i can't be bothered to list), and cats that would fall more under the umbrella of "formal musicians" than pop stars or beatmakers run around talking about how big all that stuff was for them, influentially.
good luck getting something like that out of keyshia. (just keeping it real.)
