Title - 'Baecation'
Artist - J. Holiday
For those unaware, dim the lights and get ready for one of the sexiest albums R&B icon J. Holiday has made since his blockbuster, multi-platinum selling 2007 album Back Of My ‘Lac (2007).
On his brand new album Baecation (out now via Cleopatra Records), the superstar Holiday offers 12 new studio recordings, that all come complete with his incredibly powerful and emotive voice.
Also included are two (2) bonus tracks of recently-recorded versions of Holiday’s biggest hits, 'Bed' and 'Suffocate'.
1. 'Don’t Wanna Lose'
2. 'On Your Body'
5. 'Why You Came'
6. 'Dem Belly Full'
9. 'Problem' (feat. Popp Culture)
10. 'Whatcha Say'
11. 'Yes We Can'
13. 'Bed' [Bonus Track]
14. 'Suffocate' [Bonus Track]
This electrifying album opens on the finger-snapping Gospel, R&B flow of 'Don’t Wanna Lose' and backs that up with the smooth and silky 'On Your Body,' the transcendent title track, 'Baecation,' the free-flowing majesty of 'Four' and then the gentle R&B funk of 'Why You Came.'
The tempo is turned up for the Caribbean dancefloor hipsway of 'Dem Belly Full' which is followed by one of my own personal favorites on the album, the low riding 'Magic,' which is itself backed by the scratchy ballad 'Drugs,' the one-two hip-hop punch of 'Problem' (feat. Popp Culture) and then we get the R&B sway of 'Whatcha Say.'
The heartfelt outreach of 'Yes We Can' is another great track and is followed by the acoustic guitar-imbued brilliance of 'Hydro' (that also doesn't hide the fact that it contains a reworked version of the chorus from 'Drift Away'), with the album rounding out on the two bonus tracks, redo's of both 'Bed' and 'Suffocate.'
