"Leschea is a sista from Brooklyn who got her start with Masta Ace Incorporated before breaking out on her own with this mad tight debut. Seen by me as a cross between Aaliyah and M.C. Lyte, Leschea dropped this disc at the time when neo-soul was on the rise in urban music. And for those like myself who were not ready for neo-soul, Leschea surely pleased. Girlfriend came hard with a straight-up, in-yo-face persona that basically shined on her debut. She was introduced to the world with "How We Stay", a James Brown-sampled tune which she addresses about dressin' fly baggy style. No track on this album is a standout because every track is major funky. Within the album, there are at least three intermissions with one of them incorporating a phone conversation between Leschea and her friend name Hope, who tells Leschea about an major brawl at Foot Locker that is just hilarious. But if you like hot beats and great singing, add this disc to your collection."

"Wow! She reminds me of Mary J. Blige, same type of style, R&B chick flowing over hip-hop beats, Check out "Hip Hop" produced by the legendary Lord Finesse, a nice laid-back track, and also "3 To 5" which has a familar Wu-Tang beat, and "High Velocity" is pretty dope...Check it out you won't be disappointed!"
