Nicki Richards - Why You Wanna Hurt Me So Bad?

Known for her powerful vocals as both a backing and lead vocalist, Nicki Richards is back with another single from her current album. It is a smooth R&B midtempo in its original version. Nicki's vocals are excellent. The lyrics are quite deep.

The remixes by Tony Moran & Warren Rigg, Matthias Heilbronn, Eric Kupper, and Daryl James take this to the clubs and back. Tony and Warren deliver their usual fierce club anthem. With it's hard driving beats and soaring synths, the production meshes flawlessly with Nicki's vocals. Both Matthias Heilbronn and Eric Kupper take things in a more soulful direction. Very elegant. These have a very 'classic' feel. The Darryl James mix is an R&B/Hip Hop type mix. This plus the original could plenty of radio airplay if they were promoted to the mainstream. It's great.

The CD maxi single can be purchase here (CD Baby). Previews of all versions can be heard. Other digital stores may have the single for sale at some point too.

Check out Nicki on MySpace. The album version of this song can be listened to there also.

Overall, this is yet another great single from Ms. Richards. Here's to many more.

Grade: A
