...and all you other R&B connoisseurs, what are some contemporary joints, old and new that you can recommend to me? I'm coming back from a hiatus of sorts from contemporary R&B and soul, because I just wasn't flat out feeling anybody. As of late, I bought the new Chrisette Michelle, Donnie's 1st joint, and Van Hunt's 1st joint... props to Speedy for keeping that brother in my mental rolodex, because that album is superb!! I'm also feeling Anthony Hamilton, who's next on my hit list. He's got that ole, gritty Bobby Womack style to him, like K-Ci and Sisquo, two of the best male R&B singers of the '90s (hate all you want, but that's real talk) Y'all seen me post for a good minute and tend to know my style, right? Sorry Ixt, but I still can't get into your girl India nor your boy Musiq. I'm not crazy about India's voice and I think her writing is too pretentious... like, "look at me, I write poetry"... those types always suck. I never felt Musiq at all. He just doesn't move me. I'm trying to listen to some more Amy Winehouse, because I think my judgement of her was premature. I'm not a fan of the pop queens like Rihanna, Ciara, Beyonce, MJB, so don't bother with them. Anyway, let the recommendations roll in!
