When I first heard Kristen Kelly's ‘He Loves to Make Me Cry,’ I had to close the door to my office and turn up the volume. By the time I heard the second verse I sent the kids out of my office to the break room for some sodas and candy. This is a pretty steamy song, or at least in my mind it is. Kristen Kelly exhibits the vocal control and power that is reminiscent of a Martina McBride with the soulfulness of a Billie Holiday or Dinah Washington. Don't just take my word for it, you be the judge and check it out.

I'll call it like it is, this is a song that is seductive as well as sensual. This song will make you remember that once in a lifetime lover, so many call their 'soul-mate. While I played it in my office I invited my female co-workers to lend me their ears. Those that are in a meaningful relationship seemed to like it, those ladies that aren't turned their nose up on it and said "it's okay." There were some that said "does she have to brag about it?" It think the later two, were comments made in envy.

Although the song has been out on her four song EP it's the second single release and follow up to ‘Ex-Old Man.’ This is a show of polar opposites the 'Ex-Old Man' song was about tears of sadness and heartbreak. Now Kristen is singing his praises and has tears of joy. Nonetheless, I'm a fan of awesome and strong female vocals, so I give this one my seal of approval, she just belts it out and there is no doubt what Miss Kelly is trying to say. She made a fan out of me in one song, so keep it up Kristen.
