Album Review

This is the Hailey brothers' first U.S. album since 2002's Emotional. Since then, they've had more downs than ups, as documented in K-Ci & JoJo: Come Clean, a 2010 series televised by TV One. Now with the eOne label, a refuge for established artists in the ever-shrinking major-label R&B industry, the Haileys were matched with an assortment of songwriters and producers who helped them make what is neither their best nor their worst work as a duo. Some of the productions are all-the-way-modern contemporary R&B, but none of the lyrics attempt to compete with the racier younger generation that Jodeci spawned. "Middle of the Night," as in middle-of-the-night sex, is the closest they get to explicit, but it's written from the perspective of parents who can't get down until the kids are asleep. K-Ci sounds older than his age, and JoJo's voice isn't as steady as it once was, but this is a satisfying and occasionally compelling return that is true to their past and present — just heartfelt R&B with no guest MCs and no dance-pop. Considering what they've been through, it's better than what was expected. The best creative move was the idea to cover the Vanguards' 1969 cult classic soul weeper "Somebody Please." If performed live with as much conviction as the version here, it should bring the house down. K-Ci pours more of himself into this song than any other.

Customer Reviews

Not good

I've been a diehard Jodeci fan since 92, but this stuff here from Kci and Jojo is hot mess. They need Devanta. It's not the same sound with out him.

Not a big fan

I have been a die hard fan of these guys since the early 90's. This is not their best work but because I'm a fan I will support their efforts.

K-Ci to the rescue...

I give K-Ci credit for sticking by his brother JoJo knowing JoJo can't sing a lick anymore. It's really heartbreaking because JoJo had the pretty voice to compliment K-Ci's soulful rasp. The song writing and production is pretty good but not terribly memorable. However K-Ci could still sing the phone book and it would sound amazing! Not their best effort but a worthy purchase for any real R&B fans.

Biography

Genre: R&B/Soul

Cedric and Joel Hailey comprise the romantic R&B duo K-Ci & JoJo, who were one of two pairs of brothers who made up the chart-topping '90s group Jodeci. The Haileys grew up singing in church choirs in Charlotte, North Carolina, and toured the South with their father's gospel group. When they met the DeGrate brothers, Dalvin and DeVante Swing, they decided to switch to secular music and formed Jodeci. After signing with Uptown, the quartet released three platinum albums over 1991-1995, with DeVante...
