Fiona's Comments

This is the kind of music to start the weekend off. A fun tune that had me smiling wide before it was over.

About the Album

Lakecia Benjamin's unique new contribution to the future of soul and funk on her debut album is sure to win over fans of acts from Maceo Parker and Sharon Jones to Adele and Erykah Badu. In keeping with her eclectic style, the tracks are a mix of vocal and instrumental joints ranging from peaceful to party jams like “Maceo,” a period-perfect, JB's-style tribute to funky sax legend Maceo Parker.
