Album · 2009 · 13 Songs. Recorded with Roots Manuva producer Will Lotek and characterised by live ess the bouncy horns on The Key -Speech Therapy whispers where others shout. Spinnin’ pits Debelle’s youthful delivery against tinkling piano, Daddy’s Little Girl pairs rumbling bass with raw emotion and Finish This Album is a string-soaked mission statement that’s as powerful as it is playful. Speech Therapy Speech Debelle.
Ultimately, though, Speech Therapy isn't a producer's record, but an MC's. And the title's no feint: Speech lies supine on the couch for the full 50 minutes. Fortunately, whether she's sifting through the anguish she's caused her mother and the trouble she's having finishing her album, or realizing that good sex can make for bad boyfriends and that even sucky jobs serve some cosmic purpose, she generally cuts through the crap without pretending to have easy answers.
Speech Therapy won Speech Debelle the 2009 Mercury Prize, becoming the first hip hop artist since Dizzee Rascal in 2003 to win the award. After the win, sales of Speech Therapy were comparatively low to other Mercury winners, selling only around 3,000 copies at the time of winning the prize. Since her win, the album's sales totalled at 15,000 as of 2012. There is a gracious, almost stately air to the record, yet the songs still sound entirely joyous. Paul Macinnes of The Guardian wrote "There's something intriguing about Speech Debelle, with a voice both husky and sweet, and a back story that's emotive if unclear. Macinnes also nominated Speech Therapy as his favourite album of 2009.

Debelle's debut album, Speech Therapy, was released in the United Kingdom on 31 May 2009. Recorded mostly in Australia, the album was created by Debelle, Wayne Lotek and Plutonic Lab (who produced "The Key and "Better Days"), and Big Dada founder Will Ashon, the album documented her formative years in London. Despite the Mercury Prize win, only 10,000 units of Speech Therapy were sold by November 2009 in comparison to the 300,000-album sales of the 2008 winner, Elbow's The Seldom Seen Kid and 2010's winners The xx whose winning album xx went platinum shortly after winning the award. Debelle reportedly quit the Big Dada record.
