Queen Latifah does the 'Poetry Man'

Queen Latifah who spent the first nine years turning the hip hop scene into her own has done that with acting and her Oscar-nominated turn in the musical "Chicago" has returned with the song, "Poetry Man" from her album Trav'lin' Light (Verve Records). Although the album has sold to date only has sold just more than 150,000 copies since its release two months ago.

You make me laugh
Cause your eyes they light the night
They look right through me
You bashful boy
You're hiding something sweet
Please give it to me yeah, to me

Talk to me some more
You don't have to go
You're the Poetry Man
You make things all rhyme

Latifah, born Dana Elaine Owens made her debut with the feminist anthem single, "Ladies First," yet, still has triggered interested in her acting ability. Being the second artist to be nominated for an Academy Award (the other is Will Smith) Latifah presents within the song itself is the testament to her ability to focus on what's real. It is subtle.
