Nicole Wray and Terri Walker teamed together and formed a duo called Lady. I had heard about this a while back and never really heard anything else about it. I recently came across it and had a listen and i must say i love it. Nicole Wray is an artist from back in the late nighties who was apart of Missy Elliot’s Goldmine records. She had the hit song “make it hot” and another single that I loved named “eyes better not wonder”. Nicole disappeared off the scene for a while and reemerged in 2004 with a single ” If i was your girlfriend” and was supposed to be releasing an album through her new label Rocafella. Jay-z and damon dash parted ways and the label was split or dissolved and Nicole fell by the wayside again.
Terri Walker is an English R&B and soul singer-songwriter. Walker has released three albums in the United Kingdom, Untitled, L.O.V.E, and I Am. She also provided the majority of the vocals for Shanks & Bigfoot’s debut album Swings and Roundabouts. I came across her online while searching music blogs and listened to her albums from time to time.
Recently Lady has been touring and fans have noticed that Terri Walker is no longer a part of Lady and has decided to focus on solo projects. Nicole Wray is simply going by Lady now alone with a few background singers. I personally love the mesh of their voices and wish Terri would reconsider. Also i wish Nicole would consider adding a new member to the duo less duo…Fantasia would be awesome. I could just see those two tearing up some songs but of course Fanny is doing fine all by herself but hey two checks could be nice right.

There are a lot of nice cuts from the album and it has a very motown old school soul sound to it. Gladys Knight and the Pips or The Supremes style. This album is banging and some of my faves are Money, Get Ready, Tell The Truth….to name a few. Check it out if you like good soul music.
Theres also a Youtube group named Octobre that covers the songs and they do a hell of good job
