Qwote ft. Plies – 808 12″ [Jive]

At the risk of dismissing an entire musical genre, most contemporary R’n’B is like aural kryptonite to me. I just don’t get it. Slushy, leery, corporate, whining, saccharine and drivel are the kindest words I can summon to describe what I’ve had the misfortune to hear. But far be it for me to tar everyone with the same toilet brush. After all, Marquis Houston’s ‘Up in the Club’ has been a guilty pleasure for a few years now.
