Pick of the Day – December 5th: Jazmine Sullivan – Love Me Back

Jazmine Sullivan – Love Me Back

I’m a listener of current R&B, (and a buyer) but most of the albums out today aren’t very well rounded, or complete in theme…save a Maxwell, or The Dream.  It’s rare that you get R&B records with more than 3 decent songs and 11 filler tracks.  A “good” album has maybe 6 quality tracks out of 13, 14 tracks.  This one is one of those rare exceptions.  There is a slight old school feel, with the samples and instrumentation.  The real highlight is the songwriting – more than her voice, she is an excellent lyricist (and only 23).  Her ability to tell a story with a track, and then weave the right tracks together, isn’t matched by many in R&B today.  Very impressive record – highly recommended.  More R&B coming this week.
