What Now is an R&B track that would easily make it onto radio rotation for stations that would focus on Rihanna or Mariah Carey efforts. The production of What Now is stellar, allowing the instrumentation to pop even as Gemini Wired’s vocals are able to paint a stark and inspiring picture. The track ends with some hard rap bars that straddle the line between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim. The track is able to have a hard and rough-hewn sound while having a very positive sort of message. This is a track that will stick with listeners long after the song has ceased; it takes a great nod from TLC’s classic Unpretty and creates a cut that will be immediately approachable by listeners of all ages, no matter what sorts of music that they traditionally appreciate.

Here’s to hoping that Gemini Wired is able to continue building upon the goodwill generated by this track. With a sustained burst of success, there is no reason why she could not take up the mantle of performers like Jordin Sparks, Ciara, or Nicki Minaj.
