This week’s edition of ‘The Best You Never Heard’ serves up songs by teen star JoJo, Teedra Moses, Tamia and the King of Pop Michael Jackson. Drop me your suggestions for future installments at firstname.lastname@example.org
JoJo – The Way You Do Me
JoJo’s 2006 effort ‘The High Road’ saw the teen star embrace a more Urban-inspired sound; one of the standout examples of this was the Swizz Beats (yes, Swizz Beats) produced ‘The Way You Do Me’. Now, depending on how you wish to interpret the song’s lyrical content, it can be considered somewhat risque – especially taking into account her age. Saying that, there’s no denying this one’s a banger
Teedra Moses – You Better Tell Her
Listen: Too Grown For That
Taken from Michael’s 2004 greatest hits set ‘ The Ultimate Collection’, the previously unreleased ‘We’ve Had Enough’ shows that the King of Pop is still at the top of his game. This rousing track is very much in the vein of Michael’s worldwide hit ‘Earth Song’. Laced with enough ‘Michaelisms’ to echo the ‘glory days’, this one is a winner.
