Donell Jones- Lyrics (album review/ sneak peek)

“Donell Jones has a new album?!” Those are the words that came to most of your minds when you saw this post right? Well it was for mine when I found out he had an album and I gotta say…It’s about damn time Donell! Only took you 4 years if you don’t count “The Lost Files” album in 2009 which was pretty much lost in music world. lol

So what’s Donell bringing on this album? “This album right here is, to me, the best so far,” says Jones. “I know a lot of artists say that, but I really feel that way. This is one you can play from beginning to end. I like to give a message in the music and I think that with this particular album, I really went into depth about certain situations we find ourselves in. I named it lyrics because from the very start of my career, that’s what I’ve tried to build on, writing strong lyrics and making sure that whatever I put out there, people can understand.” That’s some pretty big and confident talk considering his 1999 platinum selling album “Where I Wanna Be” is my all time favorite and in my mind a flawless album from start to finish. Hell my wedding song is on that album and I’m not even married yet. lol

Listening to the first two tracks right off the bat I can say he’s not off to a good start “rap singing” on the #1 The World Is Yours with way to much talking in the beginning of both tracks totally killing the it for me like a mixtape dj basically explaining how he’s back and the R&B needs him.  He even has his mama talking on #2 Your Place. Ewww. His first and probably only single off the album #3 Love Like This is a chill track with a decent video till Donell takes his hat and glasses off. lol Whoa! Donell got dome!!!! And I’ve seen prettier love interest in Walmart.

“Love Like This”

The talking continues on track 4, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 13! Just sing Donell! Your killing the songs. We don’t need introductions! Speaking of #10 You Can Burn Donell introduces one of his first artist signed to his “record label” Candy Man by the name of Breeze who’s a female singer that can’t sing worth a damn. *shakes head* The album as a whole is a big disappointment to me because I was really hoping Donell would back his words and bless us with an up to date “Where I Wanna Be” but it’s far from that. The production is boo boo especially the uptempo clubby ones. The content isn’t something I don’t wanna hear like strip clubs, tapping married women and sneaking out the Back Door, and ruining a girl life he dated that didnt want to be with him via Blackmailing her for money who’s getting married. Unnecessary auto tune (#5). There are no high notes at all! It’s pretty much soft spoken singing through out. You know an album is bad when Young Joc the best thing about it. Real spit.

Thee official track list! Featuring a full album of 18 tracks for our listening pleasure along with some really nice feature’s which Dwele isn’t to known for via his past album’s.

So far I’ve heard 3 of the 18 track’s. The first being  “Whats Not to Love” where you can listen in my prior post here. Track #2 “I Wish” that I’ll be showcasing fresh out the fridge later this week for you guy’s. And last but certainly not least track #8 “How I deal feat Slum Village which is by far my favorite track out of the 3 and probably out of the 18. Dwele actually made this single about 2 years ago during the Obama campaign which was his inspiration for the track. He made a super dope music video of the track because as he say’s “I was bored at home, shot a video, me and my tripod.” If this is the end result of his boredom then I hope he’s bored a whole lot more because I lost count on how many time’s I’ve watched this video due to how hot the track is as well as the all around dope simplicity of the video where he simply in his room singing to the camera on the edge of his bed with 2 of his clones playing the beat with an MPC and a keyboard. This video is nuts! You be the judge…

I guess he was feeling the track so much he decided to revamp it a little with the Slum Village feature where you can hear a taste of it in his “W.orld. Commercial” which I also posted in the link above. Let me know what track your looking forward to hearing and why from the list. And make sure to check the site on the daily for soul exclusive’s from myself and the rest of the Soulified crew.
