  • The first artist signed to Missy Elliot's label, singer/rapper Nicole Wray has a maturity and poise that some industry vets will doubtless covet. The title track, her first single, hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart, debuting at number 20, quite impressive for a rookie. Missy herself chimes in with a head-nodding verse on the track. With direction and writing assistance from Elliot and production help from long-time collaborator Timbaland, MAKE IT HOT is a collection of blazing tracks and sweet, impressive vocal dynamics.
  • A sultry and sexy physical appearance is only the most superficial of Nicole's assets. The former model has built a strong platform for her career to rise from, and her vocally, she can handle anything from the soft ballads "Boy You Should Listen" and "Eyes Better Not Wander" to the jeep-rockers "Curiosity" and "I Can't See." Look for guest appearances from Ginuwine, Playa, Aaliyah and Kelly Price.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/1/98, p.70) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Nicole has spunk to spare and a promising set of pipes that are equally at home with rich, velvety croons and sassy, attitudinal trills....Give this girl a year or two, and the real soul royalty might well have reason to watch their backs."
