“This might be cocky, but it’s real, so fuck it, I’m-a say it,” Syleena Johnson declares on her new one, right before a chorus of back-up singers chime in on the hook: “She’s so underrated.” Album’s called Chapter V: Underrated, and if not all of it convinces you that this fiery R&B semi-star is worthy of the attention she says she deserves, the duet with Tweet does hit some serious pleasure centers. Tweet, ya’ll!
