Thursday Tunes: Tweet "Always Will"

One of the most underrated r&b singers of our generation, Charlene "Tweet" Keys, from Rochester, NY,  is a powerhouse vocalist and talented songwriter. She burst onto the scene with her debut album "Southern Hummingbird  (2002) and to this day, it's one of few albums I can play all the way through w/ o skipping a track.

It was lead by the sexually charged missy Elliott produced ode to masturbation "Ooops, oh my". While that was definitely a banger, the ballads on the album were the selling point for me.

"Always Will" is my absolute favorite from the album. About an undying love and a self-assured woman who KNOWS that this man will love her forever, Tweet sings it so effortlessly. (I believe she also played guitar on this track too..audiophiles can correct me if I am wrong)

My Favorite Lyrics:
We're inseparable
Cause your soul's with mine
And you've, you've been loving me so long
And I bet you always will

We could be on separate planets
Mars and Venus, heart to heart
No spaces between us
Cause you know, hearts don't lie
I can stay here inside in this here city
And you go sail here across the ocean
I bet you always will


I think I might have played this song after every single failed "relationship" I've had. (LOL)...

That is the testament of a great song. Timeless.........

Tweet is awesome. I look forward to her new work...I heard she's dropping something really soon....


  1. Tweet is most definitely underrated! Southern Hummingbird is one of my all-time favorite albums -- Beautiful is my favorite track on it. I am so glad to hear that Tweet may be dropping something soon; a new album is long overdue.

  2. I live for Tweet Tues now when she post a new song on twitter!!!! Her voice is EVERYTHING to me so glad she is coming out with new music. I need Jasmine Sullivan to come on back out too LOVE her voice too.

  3. I'm glad you shared this, because I think the only song I've ever heard from her was the "Oops oh my" joint. She is so talented. And also, before her time with the name Tweet. It's perfect now, lol.
