What do you get when you combine silky vocals of Lauryn Hill and the eccentric behaviour of Bjork? Amy Winehose.
The moment I heard “Rehab” of her 2nd album Back to Black (2006), I intiallythought it was L-Boogie’s latest single. Similar blues & jazz peppered the single as well as the similarity in the voice of AMy Winehouse to L-Boogie.
I belive why most people love “Rehab” is because it is something which any recovering addict can relate to as well as the easy sing along of the single.
To only further emphasize her star power, Jay-Z insisited that he does a remix with her thus showing the allure of the eccentric one.
A recovered alcoholic as well as a bulimic, she is steadilygaining crediblity in the R&B as well as the the Electro/Disco scene.
Choosing only Mark Ronson (Producer for Ghostface) and Salaam Remi (Producer for Fugees & Nas) to work with, Back to Black is a blend of R&B & Jazz mix with the up to date hip-hops beats.
I choose her anyday over Joss Stone in terms of her music.
