danaowens.jpgThis couldn't have come at a better time, especially with all the buffonery she's gotten herself into in the film arena lately. As far back as Black Reign when I heard her sing "Winki's Theme" honoring her brother, I knew she had chops. From there I started thinking what would happen if she did an R&B album? Then after her minor role as a soulful lounge singer in Living Out Loud, I started thinking she should certainly do a jazz album. And finally an answer has arrived with the Dana Owens Album, which must have been inspired by her appearance in Chicago. The album, a collection of 12 of her favorite soul, blues, and pop songs ranging from the '20s to the '70s, is refreshing and will without a doubt garner her a new fan base. Let's just thank ourselves that she's being unlike Will Smith and has realized that a hip-hop album is not what anyone wants from her. Man first Anita Baker makes a comeback and now this. I can not contain myself.

Have a listen:
