Dwele does it again with the three symbolic aspects of his life streaming through his album “W.ants W.orld W.omen”. It’s a creative compilation of the three different ego of Dwele. As I see him, rough but tightly stroked fro, cocoa skin, dark frames, a tailored jacket, and a soulful sensuous voice repeating its melodies in my ears…Now that would be how I see him, but the cover of his album that is released June 29th, illustrates more than just a bunch of songs put together, but what I like about this one is he has mixed who he is with what he knows and what you would want to hear.
The CD represents his ego in three different stages. As I listened to the song for the first time, I realized that the songs go in sequence of the titles. From his world to his wants to his woman, the song “Love You Right” is a beautiful melody that there is someone out there to love you how you want to be loved. He talks about his mistakes with women and how he promises to do better, ladies who wouldn’t want a brotha to confess that? There are also some talented artists featured throughout the album like Raheem Devaughn with the headboard knockin’ song “Dim the Lights”, Slum Village, and even David Banner. From his “Hangover” to “I Understand” Dwele makes sure that his voice goes in sequence with his world, Detroit minds, History meets. W.ants W.orld W.omen is yet another enjoyable album that I can add to my feels good playlist when I just want my mind, body, and spirit to feel right.
