It's been a busy seven days for Grae. The songs give This Week a diary feel, illustrating conflicts, regrets, frustration, and loves lost. Grae's flow streams out of her conscience, as if she's having a revelatory dialogue with each listener. "P.S." pours like gasoline dousing an old flame, and Grae's voice is thick with wouldas, couldas, and shouldas: "As you can tell I've done a lot of growing up/ And time goes fast with no sign of slowing up." But with brutal honesty comes Grae's trademark sarcasm, thicker than blood here. When she delivers the line, "Run through your 'hood with my middle finger up," you know Grae hasn't gone soft. She calls the shots here, and next week she'll come even harder.
