We gave up on waiting for Maxwell and D’Angelo to drop their new ish ages ago. Thank god then for Neo Soul era hope, Jesse Boykins III. Referring to his sound as Ghetto Tech, he could well be the future of R&B. There’s a nod to the sounds of The Isley Brothers and even Sa-Ra in there but The Beauty Created is in a place of its own, able to experiment with new R&B grooves while reigning in the OTT. Get out that cognac, sit back and bounce to this sexy production.
