Lina The Inner Beauty Movement

The comely Lina is the latest R&B ingénue to step into the spotlight. While she can‘t turn a phrase like Jill Scott or Erykah Badu, she makes groovy party jams infused with hip-hop flavors. With her Badu-like, smoky singing style, Lina‘s not big on vocal histrionics, preferring to keep it relatively simple. There are solid tunes on the album, but even Lina can be mired in the obligatory hokey duet-namely "Around The World," which sees her dueling with Anthony Hamilton. That gripe aside, The Inner Beauty Movement is a decent debut.
