Album: Beautifully Human – Words and Sounds, Vol.2
In short: Scott, known also as a poet began her career as a spoken word artist. She incorporates her singing and “verbalizing” abilities very well in this song.

Lovey-dovey, the Chocolate method!

chocolate2-208-1jpgChocolate, the tastiest ingredient on earth, here refers to the tastiest songs, music, and artists. No one sings love songs like black people, no racism, no strings attached, it’s just facts. Soul music, R&B, Motown, are all primarily black music, and love is the subject of 99% of those songs. So here’s a little compilation of love sings, that’s sure to put a smile on your pretty face when heard! So hurry up and get loadin’.

jillJill Scott:
Come See Me
All I
He Loves Me [Lyzel In E Flat] (Live In Paris)

I could sleep to the sound of Jill talking, let alone singing, here’re some of her best love-filled songs, her writing is immense, especially the second and third ones! Fact: Janet Jackson said Come See Me is her favorite track off Jill’s album while promoting Why Did I Get Married? in which they starred alongside each other.

toniToni Braxton:
I Wanna Be (Your Baby)

I know it’s not her best, but I love that song, it came up while shuffling, and I just stood still listening to the lyrics defining and dissecting a love so strong, and “laying it on the line”

jjackonJanet Jackson:
Spending Time With You
Any Time, Any Place
Love 2 Love
No one does sexy love ballad like Ms. Jackson, a song that’s very underrated and ignored is “Love 2 Love” which I think is beyond great, the beat, the vocals, the overall production, it’s a hard-hitting one!

lhillLauryn Hill:
Nothing Even Matter
I won’t say a word, listen to the lyrics.

akeysAlicia Keys:
Never Felt This Way (Interlude)
Taken from her debut album, this beautifully crafted interlude was dismissed/ignored by the public because of it being a mere interlude, I think it’s better than half of the album, if you’ve never heard and you like any Alicia song, just make sure to grab it while it’s here!

alarriAmel Larriuex:
For Real
Make Me Whole
“Make Me Whole” is a modern classic, or it should be. It’s the IT song for lovers, not exaggerating when I say it’s one of the best songs I have heard my whole life. For Real is just beautiful, the high-notes towards the end are crazy, didn’t know she had it in her!

brandyBrandy
1st & Love
Fall
“1st & Love” is one of the best songs on Brandy’s latest LP, it stood out immediately, it has a killer hook, an epic chorus, and beautiful cutesy lyrics! “Fall” is also a gem of hers, “When you find someone that means so much to you, giving all you got is easy to do

It looks fun, I love Jill Scott and anything she does! I can’t wait for this to air. Check its teaser trailer above.

Song: Imagination (Crown Royal Suit)
Artist: Jill Scott
Album: The Real Thing – Words and Sounds, Vol.3
In short: This is a bonus track, it’s 6 minutes long. It’s a combination of two songs, the first “Imagination” which runs until the 4:00 mark, then the second part is an interlude already found on the album “Crown Royal”, one of my all-time fave interludes, the way each lyric is sung, it delivers the message CLEARLY.

Song: Imagination (Crown Royal Suite)
Artist: Jill Scott
Album: The Real Thing – Words and Sounds, Vol.3
In Short: This is a bonus track, it’s two tracks in one, or shall I say, a track and an outro. The outro is the song “Crown Royal” on the album, which is 1:49 minutes long. The song preceding the outro is the perfect piece of harmony and melody to accompany the outro, Jill can do NO wrong, at all. That woman is like no other, believe me.

Remixtation: Love Rain – Jill Scott

The one artist famous for re-singing her remixed singles is Mariah Carey (We Belong Together‘s remix with Jadakiss is perfection), and I personally admire and respect an artist that actually make an effort to please their fans, because everyone loves a re-sung remixed song. One of Jill Scott‘s best songs in her whole career gets that treatment, and gets it well. The ‘Head Nod Remix‘ adds so much to the song, it is not better than the original, but it’s a lovely change if you ever get bored of the original. Take a listen and tell me what you think.
