London’s Joy Orbison continuing the trend of late 90s and early 00s R&B revival. Re-working Donnell Jones’ “U Know What’s Up.” Left Eye is nowhere to be found, inevitably because Joy is a wise man who wants to avoid blasphemy.

I am fully in favor of this reappraisal of the R&B of that era. Anyone who wants to make me a mix of contemporary electronic producers remixing R&B songs made between New Jack Swing and Auto-Tune knows where to find me. I’m just hoping that this revival does not leave out poor Montell Jordan, who stood 6’8 and people thought the music that he made was good. While you’re at it, I also endorse a critical reappraisal of Jade, Zhane and Portrait.

Here we go again.
