"Ghetto Rose" is a song recorded by American R&B singer Keke Wyatt serving as the first single from her unreleased second studio album "Ghetto Rose" (2007) through TVT Records and The Orchard on October 9, 2007.[1][2] The song was written by Curt Schneider, Franne Golde and Kasia Livingston and produced by Curt Schneider.

Background[edit]

In 2005 she released the single "Put Your Hands on Me" which was set to be her second studio album Emotional Rollercoaster. The album was planned to be released on May 31, 2005, through Cash Money Records/Universal Motown Records but after two postponed release dates, the release was cancelled altogether. In 2007 she released the "Ghetto Rose" set from her second album with the same title. The album was originally set for release on October 23, 2007, through TVT Records but was postponed for release in early 2008. Then, in February 2008, the record label filed for bankruptcy and, for the second time in her solo career, Wyatt's album was shelved.

Critical response[edit]

Andy Kellman from Allmusic stated "The sophomore effort from Keke Wyatt finds the urban contemporary singer refining her smooth, hip hop-influenced sound to impressive effect. Like her debut, Soul Sista, 2007's Ghetto Rose blends the influence of old-school legends (Patti LaBelle) with contemporary divas (Mary J. Blige), while Wyatt puts her own distinctive stamp on the mix. Ghetto Rose has its share of groove-driven jams, yet Wyatt is at her best with thoughtful down- and midtempo tunes, such as the pulsing title track, a stirring plea for men to respect their women."[3]
