this album ROCKS!

very happy with this album. it's just simply stunning. i hadn't heard much of Erykah's work before (mainly because I'm not really into r&B), but after hearing her on David Chapelle's movie "Block Party" I instantly fell in love with her voice.

If you can't bump to this just can't bump !!!
