The Best You Never Heard: JoJo, Teedra Moses, Tamia & Michael Jackson

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 sam@thatgrapejuice.net

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

 

Listen: The Way You Do Me

Teedra Moses – You Better Tell Her

Songstress Teedra Moses has been steadily building up an army of loyal followers since the release of her critically acclaimed LP ‘Complex Simplicity’ back in 2006. Indeed the former stylist-to-the-stars served up one of that year’s most solid efforts IMO. Filled with great cut after great cut, ‘You Better Tell Her’ stands as one of my personal favourites.

 

Listen: You Better Tell Her

Tamia – Too Grown For That

 

 

Lifted from Tamia’s most recent album ‘Between Friends’, the Darkchild produced ‘Too Grown For That’ makes this week’s edition for a number of reasons. Aside from the fact that it’s one of the album’s most solid tracks, the uptempo, club-ready production is a welcome departure from her traditional (mid-tempo/ballad) forte. A true testament to Tamia’s versatility as an artist.

Listen: Too Grown For That

Michael Jackson – We’ve Had Enough

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.

    Yeahh, JoJo’s whole High Road CD is a certified banga. Many of those songs were risque though for her age. Good Ol’ seemed like it was talkin’ about weed.

    This track should have been a single for the urban market though.

    Lookin’ forward to the new one comin’ out late 2008.

    Actually there were way better tunes on JoJo’s last album (ex. “Like That” and “Anything”). Oh and the same for Teedra (“Rescue Me” and “Backstroke”). U should put those up….
