The One Superpsychosexy
- Words: Velanche
- Label: Om Hip-Hop
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
Bay Area vocalist The One (with his beatmaking collaborator Geoffrey) is among a slate of artists in recent years that have helped to put back the neo in neo-soul. "Beautifulwonderful" meshes future funk and slo-mo hip-hop beats, with The One's sensual voice enveloping the beats like liquid candy: it may not always be good for you, but you'll want more after your first taste. And taking your "Milkshake Thick" may help quench that appetite for sensual cooing. Superpsychosexy doesn’t break much ground, but its unadulterated funkiness earns its neo stripes. If you’re down for an intense, mirror-fogging time with your significant other, grab this and put it on. You’re welcome.
