When Clive Davis set signed her and set her up with that show she did in NY (can't remember the venue), everyone's was just buzzing and I really thought she'd be at least in the Erykah Badu/Jill Scott league.
...but to my ears the album is schmaltzy and formulaic (OK, so this is the same Clive Davis that brought Whitney to our ears, so I can forgive that!).
Obviously she's talented.... but I'm yet to hear anything from her (musically) that makes me think she's special.
Time will tell, but yes at the moment she's overrated. I don't like the album, but I don't hate her.
