Singer with Guyanese roots rated highly by ABC

Listening to Anjulie's self-titled debut CD is like hearing a nice blend of Nelly Furtado and Corinne Bailey Rae, vocally speaking. But what makes this newcomer's album so impressive is the lyrical content.

"He got a knife in my back, stop turning please," she pleads on "The Rain." "Sometimes I lock myself inside your closet, breathe in the scent of your clothes," she sings on the exceptionally smooth (and appropriately titled) "Crazy That Way."

The Canadian pop singer, whose parents migrated from Guyana, is mostly singing love songs — but not typical ones.

"Keep your clothes off, I'm not rushing out like some dumb girl," she commands on the infidelity tune, "Some Dumb Girl."

Other top tracks include the beat-driven "The Heat," the suave "Colombia" and the mysteriously gloomy first single, "Boom."

Anjulie, who wrote or co-wrote each song, closes the CD with "Day Will Soon Come," where the anxious singer lets you know she'll become a big star. After listening to this top-notch debut, she sure deserves to become one.

CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: On "Addicted2Me" Anjulie's voice is definitely addictive with its winning bridge, "Nobody's got a love like mine."
