This one kinda flew under the radar a bit. Aside from Brandy & Ray J's "Another Day in Paradise", I don't think it really garnered much attention at all. I, however, quite like the album, but that probably has more to do with concept than execution, for the most part. Essentially a Phil Collins tribute album where a bunch of his classics are given an R&B twist (with a bit of hiphop thrown in of course...hence the use of "urban" as a descrpitor in the album's title 🙄). It's not all great, but when it's good, it's soooooo good! My personal favourite is Deborah Cox's stunning rendition of "Something Happened on the Way to Heaven". Between Shep Crawford's brilliant production and Deb's spectacular delivery, they made it sound so "her own" that I had no idea it was even a cover when I first heard it. A close second would have to be Lil Kim's "In the Air Tonite" which brilliantly samples the original Phil Collins vocal.
Also, they shoulda just used Mariah's cover of "Against All Odds" cuz Montell's one on here is definitely "a no no". 🙅🏽♂️ #sorrynotsorry
