Four years later, Kenna's on a new major label, but his second album Make Sure They See My Face hasn't fared much better. Originally scheduled for release over the summer, the album was delayed, leaving Kenna hanging when he opened for Nelly Furtado on her tour, supporting an album that, as far as anyone knew, didn't exist. Then, as if to twist the knife, the album got bumped again. And a couple of more times, too. What's so amazing is that, once again, Kenna's music seems perfectly suited to the current music environment.

And though the critical reception to the project was warm enough, sales were low and Kenna was sent on his way, labelless. Eventually, with another nearly completed album, he found a new home at Universal (which is a little coincidental, considering it's Interscope's parent company), and what results, Make Sure They See My Face, is a much more cohesive record, one that may have an easier time making it onto MTV and mainstream radio.

Summary: Ethiopia-born Kenna's sophomore album was produced by the Neptunes' Chad Hugo and features Pharrell Williams on some tracks. Record Label: Interscope. Genre(s): Indie, Rock, Alternative. While it's all over the place, it's still much easier With Make Sure They See My Face, Kenna created a very good sophomore album. While it's all over the place, it's still much easier to follow than Kenna's debut, New Sacred Cow. The only thing that's really missing is truly memorable songs for the duration of the album. The album starts off great but there's really no way that the second half has the flair of the first half. 0 of 0 users found this helpful.

Kenna's second album, entitled Make Sure They See My Face, also co-produced by Hugo, was written over the course of three years, finishing in early 2007. The album was originally set to be released on June 5, 2007, then pushed back to June 19, 2007, finally being released on October 16, 2007. Kenna, in an interview with Vibe magazine, cited the reason for delays as being over the video for the album's debut single

The inspiration for the album came from Kenna's attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the title, inspired from a phone calls by Neptunes Pharrell asking Kenna; "are you going make sure they see your face?". Kenna's Kilimanjaro climb took him to 18,200 feet before he fell ill from taking a sulfur-based altitude medicine, one he was unaware he was allergic t. .Upon the album's British release in May 2008, Kenna told noted UK R&B writer Pete Lewis of the award-winning Blues & Soul: "I actually went in to make an album that unifies all walks

The mission is to make you forget And now is all the time that we get How could you say you're not into it Trust me God is my witness. Just say goodbye to love I feel like I'm nowhere Say goodbye to love I feel like I'm nowhere Just say goodbye to love. Its got my mind in a twist I can't think or see straight I guess I'm leavin it up to fate Its all in what you make of it. Just say goodbye to love I feel like I'm nowhere Say goodbye to love I feel like I'm nowhere Just say goodbye to love
