Overview

Like veteran crooner Keith Sweat, newcomer J-Shin (pronounced Jay-Shin) has mastered the art of macking. On his debut disc MY SOUL, MY LIFE, the Miami native proclaims that sex is not the only thing on his mind. But throughout the 12 song package, one gets the distinct impression that bodyrockin' is never far from his thoughts. Consider "One Night Stand," a heart-wrenching duet with Xscape's LaTocha Scott about a casual encounter that results in an unplanned pregnancy; the menage-a-trois fantasy "U, Me, and She" featuring Dirty South rapster Trick Daddy; and "Pony Ride," which is not exactly about a visit to a petting zoo. But dirty talk aside, J-Shin is an impressive vocalist who does have some sensitive chops, as he shows on the ballad "Treat U Better." Talk is cheap. But if you like your R&B raw, then count on J-Shin to deliver.Tracy E. Hopkins

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
With J-Shin, the ranks of artists trying to put the soul back into the R&B field grew by one. Not only does he have the immaculate voice and innate sense of rhythm to stand next to D'Angelo and Maxwell; he also writes lyrics that put the lie to more superficial forms of romance often found on hardcore rappers' LPs. From "Givin' U Luv" to "Sex Is Not" to the best track here, "One Night Stand" (with special guest LaTosha Scott from Xscape), J-Shin shows that love consists of relationships that are both mental and emotional as well as physical, and he does so with a sultry swing that makes My Soul, My Life one of the better R&B debuts of the past decade.
