Much of Scott's strength as a songstylist comes from intermingling honeyed melodies with strong spoken word. On "Gettin' in the Way," she asserts her alpha femaleness with a parting shot to a "sista girl" trying to horn in on her man. While the chorus prettily chimes, "You're getting in the way/ Of what I'm feelin'," she boldly cracks, "You keep lying to my man, girl/ I'm gonna take you out in the middle of the street/ And whup your ass for all it's worth/ $5.99 or somethin' like that." Strangely, this snapshot of her roughneck Philly roots comes across with an unanticipated sense of class, no doubt due to Scott's witty attitude, perfect timing, and always-confident stage presence. There's nothing phony about this tough and tender-sweet singer -- and that honesty's her ultimate lure.
