Overview

Perhaps compensating for the negativity rampant in the rap world, K-Ci & JoJo's fourth record, Emotional, is not only unrepentantly sincere and soulful, but also one of the duo's first to completely ignore the influence of hip-hop altogether. Such a level of devotion to R&B is impressive considering the success of so many rap crossovers on the charts; it's a testament to Cedric and Joel Hailey's deep respect for the smooth love jams they grew up with. K-Ci & JoJo's have amazing vocals and give sincere performances. The single, "This Very Moment," is a deeply felt performance of an uplifting song, a perfect selection for any contemporary wedding ceremony "Special" and "Down for Life" are also relationship songs with a power to melt the heart of any romantic in range.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Ben Ratliff
With Emotional, the sibling soul singers K-Ci and JoJo continue to build on a worthy tradition in Southern R&B. Their strong suit isn't just the wounded pride of the lothario -- which Bobby Womack perfected in the 70's -- but macho in a state of exquisite torture.
