My girl! It's been too long since Lisa Shaw released a new record. She put a new single out last year so I'm hoping a full-length is on the way. Another artist we haven't heard from in eons...

great pick I have that album of Sweetback, Aya voice is almost like Amel voice.

Re: Post your 2000-2016 R&B song of the day

"great pick I have that album of Sweetback, Aya voice is almost like Amel voice."

Thanks, blaque. Aya's voice is similar to Amel's. You should check out her CD Strange Flower if you haven't already. Similar to Sweetback, but also has a house vibe.

Jhene - "pretty bird"

I didn't think her album was going to be worth anything but I like it I play this album non stop her music is like listening to Amel Larrieux "infinite possibilities" or one of Sade albums.

Re: Post your 2000-2016 R&B song of the day

Nice song. The only other songs of hers I know are 3:16AM and The Worst. Good chill-out music.

Unthinkable and Fire We Make are Alicia Keys' best quiet storm/downtempo songs IMO.

(agreed, rmcrae_deluxe, and I actually prefer Alicia Keys in that mode as opposed to her songs that are more pop or dance driven)

"Fly Like A Bird" Mariah Carey, 2005

http://youtu.be/w-vWads-h4c

(One of my favorites by your girl; sounds authentically retro and her vocal arrangements are always top-notch)

Great Mimi pick! I love how TEOM had a nice mix of modern R&B/hip hop and old school soul. IIRC, FLAB was supposed to have a music video, but was scrapped for some reason. I always picture her tearing it down with a choir behind her.
