Making it on his own - Donell Jones Donell Jones - Outta my head : (Laface) 


Donell Jones is one of those rare artists who possesses a unique talent, the ability to get better and better with each project. What most probably didn't know is that Donell's work first caught national attention as a songwriter where he wrote tracks for Usher, 702, Brownstone and Silk all of which have been major hits. In 1996 Donell caught the attention of the world with his debut set 'My Heart ' that spanned such hits as 'In the Hood' ' , his renindition of the Stevie Wonder classic 'Knocks me off my feet ' and 'You should know '. 1999 saw him release 'Where I wanna be ' and found even bigger success with 'You know what's up ', 'Shorty (got her eye on me) ' and the title cut.

Opening his account for the new millennium is 'Outta my Head ' a dance floor pleaser that has a deadly bass line to provoke the head, definitely radio friendly and could very well be his biggest hit yet. Taken from the forthcoming CD 'Life goes on ' coming to a record store near you next month, Donnell's on point for another hit and if the single is any indication to what's in store for us on the album then definitely put this one on your shopping list. A worthy TY-D Pick hit   






Glenn Lewis Glenn Lewis - Don't you forget it : (Epic) 


This record has been floating about for the better part of a year now and didn't really catch anyone's attention until it was added to the 'Red Star Sounds - Vol.1 ' compilation late last year.

The new era of soul is in full swing with Glenn's latest giving you a taste of what's to come with the likes of Joi, Raphael Saadiq, Dwayne Wiggins and Musiq Soulchild all forthcoming. 

The Toronto native is another addition to the steady roaster of talent heading out of Canada nowadays (Remy Shand and Kardinal Offishal comes to mind). 'Don't you forget it ' simply lets us forget about the situation the young man endures rather than the record itself. A steady driven bass line caressed by soft soul instruments gives this track the leg up on most and has Glenn's baritone cords in flying form. 

The debut album 'World outside my window ' hits record shelves Mar 12th.  For all soul music fans this is one not to be missed.
