Raheem DeVaughn - The Love ExperienceJive Records
Joining the likes of Dwele and Van Hunt in the list of genuinely talented Soul artists emerging from the manufactured mush of chart-clogging 'R&B' is Baltimore's Raheem DeVaughn. This debut offering sees DeVaughn's immense voice and refreshing song-writing ability coupled with some of the most creative, and musically sensitive producers around; including the tragically underrated Pete Kuzma. With 18 tracks, the spine-tingling Soul is bountiful, and if there was any justice, the Kenny Dope produced 'Guess Who Loves You More' would be a chart-cleansing hit.
