*** Album number 3 from sweet-voiced Monique Ford has a good mix of bumps and ballads with good production. You gotsta love a sista who sings (on "Don't Tease Me") "Don't tease me if you can't please me. Don't be in a rush I'm gonna need some foreplay. Start from my head and end at my feet. Make sure you lick that special place right inbetween! I need a candy licker!". Oh Lawd! You hear that Marvin Sease? But don't think Monique needs the sexy lyrics to get over 'cuz she can sang as good as any of 'em. Check out her croon on "Love Thing". Hot! She's a writer too, composing 8 out of 11 selections on "Ladies Get Your Own".
The CD continues a smart trend of combining Southern Soul sounds with some of that popular R & B groove ("You Ain't Worth It") but the Southern dance jams (we still call it "Blues") like "Creeping" is where my money goes. There's a lot of Southern Soul sistas out there but this album is definitely one of the better ones I've heard this year
"Angel" (Onlock 2011)
