[First Kiss]

"First Kiss"
Zoom Records/Sony Discos (LAK-84984)
Release Date: July 16, 2002

First Kiss is an EP released by a female singer named Nayer. The first track on the disc is "Talkin' Crazy," a mid-tempo song featuring latin horns and percussion, as well as raps by Pop Dog. The song is about a man making moves on a woman, with the woman wondering what is on the man's mind. Musically and lyrically, this song is redundant.

"First Kiss" is the second track on the disc. It is an uptempo dance song about a girl finding out a guy has had a crush on her, and how she falls in love with their first kiss. The chorus has the speaker asking, "Do you wanna be with me?" after this kiss.

"No Longer There" is a slower track which features an uncredited male vocalist. The song is about someone trying to move on after a relationship is over. Nayer only sings the chorus; the verses are rapped by the male vocalist. This makes you wonder who's song this is -- Nayer's or the male vocalist's?

"Primer Beso" is a Spanish version of "First Kiss." Musically, they are the same; however, Nayer sings in Spanish. "Talkin' Crazy (Locuras de Amor)" is a Spanish version of "Talkin' Crazy" with Nayer singing in Spanish; instead of Pop Dog's raps, there is a section where Nayer does some spoken lines in Spanish.

The disc closes with "First Kiss [DJ Fluid's "Kiss" Remix]." The only differences from the original are that the bassline is a little more intense, there is more distortion on the vocals, and the first few lines are slowed down and used as part of the intro.

Overall, this was a disappointing EP. The only tracks that make this item worthwhile are the three versions of "First Kiss."
