Joss Stone — Introducing Joss Stone (2007)

April 18, 2007
Joss Stone is a British soul and R&B singer. Her third album, Introducing Joss Stone, is not like her previous two. This album shows off her ability to sing over different rhythms and styles. Introducing… not only features guest appearances from Common and Lauryn Hill, but also is produced by Raphael Saadiq, the former lead singer of early ’90s pop music band Toni, Tone, Tony.

Saadiq brings a lot syncopated rhythms, off-beat drums and catchy loops to the album. This all blends for on awesome pop and soul sound. This forces Joss to sing in different styles; as a result, she’s not able to showcase her voice as much. This is good if you just want to hear some good music, but if you want to hear her strong voice, buy her first two albums.

It is a good album to have for a second date, relaxing with a special friend during open hours; it’s also good if you just like Joss Stone or Raphael Saadiq.
